On the coil packs that sit on top of plugs #2 and #4 cylinders are attached plug wires.separate coil from wire look inside wires there are two (one in each) little and loose cylinder shaped pieces of metal ( looks and is about the size of a valve stem core) that carry your spark make sure they are intact and did not fall out.

How do i set idle control it runs rough as hell


You can't it's controlled the PCM . Did check plugs an plug wires ,maybe you have a vacuum leak . Or jumped time , timing belt ,or timing chain ! Or you have an engine mechanical problem , burnt valve or something on that order ! Or a clogged fuel injector ! Test before you assume an replace parts ! You should have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

Put new spark plugs and gas filter on 99 kia sportage, now spits and sputters way worse now , wtf.??


fuel filter may be on backwards, restricting fuel flow, if not that check that the spark plug wires are on in correct firing order, as well as the spark plug gap. (spark plugs are not always gapped for the particular application from the factory due to the multiple array of applications a particular plug can be used for)

My car is not edling when i am at the stop sign.


idling problems can be many things, but do the basics, tune up, air filter, gas filter, remember the idle is computer set so you cannot adjust it, all you can do is make sure everything is good, like spark plugs, etc. When was the timing belt replaced ? another one that makes timing very off is a leaking valve cover gasket which allows oil into the spark plug tubes drowning the spark plugs causing rough idle, and again if you do a tune up you will discover the oil leak.

Changed timing belt on 2001 kia sportage but still runs rough


I would check the connectors on the coil packs, spark plugs and wires and replace them if they at all seem worn or tired. My 2000 sportage ran rough so I replaced the fuel filter, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, cleaned out the IAC valve, TPS, throttle body and intake tube, tightened the screws on the fuel pump access door under the right rear seat and cleaned the ground wire and the contact surface and I added 1 ground wire from the block to the firewall and 1 from the valve cover to the firewall. Your timing is more than likely right where it needs to be but the ignition may be slightly missing from a bad coil pack, dirty or fouled plugs or a bad plug wire.

Bad misfire at idle


Hi, you need to go and have the check engine light looked at. without look at the engine light i would guess that the egr valve is either plugged or bad. the engine light should give you a good idea of the problem.

Rough idle,no power


There is a lot of things this could be from poor fuel pressure to the timing belt being off a notch,have the timing belt checked quickly,if it has jumped,it needs to be changed,for if it breaks,or jumps time anymore it will bend the engine valves in the head,costly too,have the fuel pressure checked,and all the boots,coils,and spark plugs.
