    Do you have any idea how I can get it back in time? I have looked every where for a repair book but can't find one even at the dealership.

Did you torque the head down properly? Do a compression check on the motor to see if you have a leak somewhere. Also check all vacuum lines, fuel pressure and spark.

I have a 1998 kia sportage wil crank over and will not start. no spark.


Sounds like the coil or possibly the electronic ignition, replace coil as this is the cheaper option. Check to see if your Kia then starts if it does allow the engine to run until at operational tempreture then shut off the engine allow 5 mins then try to restart if your Kia if it starts again without straining or being boosted via jumper cables problem solved. If by any chance you do replace the coil & your Kia still will not start the electronic ignition is the next step & that can be done yourself as long as you have the required tools & knowledge, if not a trained professional will be able to replace the electronic ignition but this will be very costly if it is the electronic ignition.

I hope this helps.

How do I know if I should replace the head or the whole engine on my 1998 Kia Sportage?


why do you need to no did the timing belt jump and damage the valves if so you can send it to a auto parts that rebuild heads or motors and they can check it for cracks or other damage as well you can maybe find a used one from scrap yard instead of spending the big money in the head or if you want check the price of a new one from dealer or jobber company and find out if the valves are in sometimes they send heads empty and it costs extra

1998 kia sportage. changed timing belt. now no compression.


WOW - DID THE BELT BREAK WHILE IT WAS RUNNING IF SO THE VALVES ARE BEND THATS WHY YOU HAVE NO COMPRESSION.
IF YOU HAD THE BELT REPLACED AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE TIMING MARKS RIGHT YOU CAN STILL BEND THE VALVES.
9 TIMES OUT OF 10 THE DAMAGE IS JUST TO THE VALVES AND NOT THE HEAD OR ENGINE. BUT IF YOU HAVE TO PULL THE HEAD MY ADVISE IS TO HAVE THE HEAD CHECKED FOR CNY CRACKS

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
