Hi Randy you need at least 150 psi to start. Check the timing belt it might have broken or slipped.

2001 Kia Sportage won't crank.

It sounds like the timing was set incorrectly when the head/head gasket was replaced. The engine won't turn over very well if the Valves are smashing the Piston Heads. I would suggest trying to turn over the engine yourself while it is in neutral. Just connect a socket to the harmonic balancer, and use a big cheater pipe. If you can feel something stopping the engine from turning, then the timing was set incorrectly.

White "smoke" spewing from my Kia.

Check your oil, you may have a blown head gasket. Check the oil too see if it has antifreeze in it
