Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
This is likely an engine misfire. Check and replace all sparkplugs if it has not been done in a while. To do so, you will have to remove the throttle body (not hard to do) and then the black plate on the top of the valve cover. After doing so, there are 2 coils and 2 wires to which cover the spark plugs. Double check the insulators on the coils and the wires for evidence of "tracking" or white marks indicating the wires have a leak and it is grounding too soon. You can purcahse the insulators seperate I do believe. Replace the spark plugs with either NGK or Nippon Denso. This should take care of it. Let me know if you need anything else.
