Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Change your ignition coils and spark plugs and wires
Posted on Sep 10, 2008
Sounds like the cat is clogged. Replace it. This is caused by bad gas or just because it got old. Also, have a look at ignition wires. Timing belts either are functioning or broken. They don't sound like anything. If you are at a recommended replacement point...do it. It's much cheaper than waiting for it to break. Engine damage could result upon breakage.

Pull the wires and plugs and check them for oil. Mine has a valve cover gasket leak that can cause misfires like this. The oil gets trapped in the spark plug wells and floods the wires.
