Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

2 Answers

ENGINE LIGHT My 2002 Sportage check engine light goes on and then turns off after a few minutes, it is an unidentified code. The dealer says that it is probably wireing and the cost will be about $600. This does not make sence to me, if it were wireing you would think the light would stay on. Any ideas?

    my problem is with the fuel system error p103, the one where the code comes with a loose gas cap. The light will go off after a few minutes, but I do not know where to check next and disconnecting the battery did not work.

My problem is fixed, my check light had gone on so the mechanic replaced my oxygen sensor but after driving a few miles it came back on. The mechanic then put the macine back on my car and ofund out that the new sensor was bad. The oxygen sensor was replaced and all is well.

2000 kia sportage is running rough and bucking

sounds like a misfire problem, may be a spark plug or wire or coil pack, depends on engine type. the first thing would be to go to an auto parts store and have the computer scanned for codes and let me know what the codes are and i will help you further .

The computer system in the Sportage is always monitoring all systems and when there is a problem it stores a code, depending on what the problem is it turns light on, the check engine light, some codes need to the computer to see the problem a few time before light is turned on, a misfire just make the engine light blink, a blinking engine light is to warn you that converter or other emission components may be damaged,

get the codes and write back. good day

Hello first of all, I cannot hide my admiration towards this wonderful website and effort revealed inside it Thank U for all what u r doing here I have a problem with my Kia Sportage 2002 , the check...

Want to make remark: I think that Kia Sportage may have a manufacturer's defect w/ code 128 ( check engine light). I had two separate mechanics from two reputable dealers look and try to fix problem w/ my vehicle, but to no avail. I have yet to take it to Kia dealership near me because since the economic crisis the dealership has shown its true colors in my opinion. They are a bunch of ignoble characters who don't know how to treat their customers w/ respect.

Check engine light is on

I would disconnect the battery for three minutes and reconnect it. That should remove the code. You will have drive the car up to about 75 miles to see if the code does or does not show up again. It may have been reading the amount of air in the system from removal of the injector.

2002 Kia engine light has been on for over a week

the engine light is comming on because there is a fault in the electronics of your engine, transmission or emission system, there are over 200 faults that can turn the light on, u will need to have the system scanned to see what fault code was stored with the check engine light.

When the engine ran out of gas it most likely misfired as the last of gas was used up, this will cause a check engine light to be set by the system called the Misfire Monitor. Clear the code, it should'nt come back.
