I had the same problem with my 99 sportage. There is box with relays in it and one of them has a problem. Try switching the relays and see if that helps.

    I had the same problem with my 99 sportage. It seems that there is a problem with the relays, in the engine compartment there is a box near the battery that holds 2 relays. If you swap these relays and try to start you car and it starts it is one of the relays. I swapped and drove my car for a couple months before I bought a new relay, have not had a problem since. I hope this helps.

    Hi, can you tell me what relays they are, are they listed so i know which ones to swap.

  • ctlove69 Jan 19, 2011

    Hello, one relay is the fuel pump and the other is the main engine. They are on the left side of the engine compartment in a black box in front of the battery. The relays are the only two in the box, they are black and about one inch square and have three prongs. If you have to replace the relays they only cost about $16 each, but try swapping them first to see if that is the problem. I don't know why this worked but I have no problems now or in the past 5 years. The big problem that I have is finding a manual for this make and model. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

2002 kia sportage fuel pump needed replacing so we did and now car won't go

There maybe an air lock in the fuel line.
Try pouring a little fuel down the carby and then start the engine, you may need to do this a few times until the air lock is cleared.

How the heck to check fuel pressure on a 2002 Kia sportage?

Some cars don't have them. You have to break into the fuel line somewhere and tee it off for your pressure tester. Usually at the gas filter is a handy place.
Some adaptation may be necessary (Toyotas need a drilled out banjo bolt, for example). Don't give up!

It could be a problem with the fuel pump or igntion module/ coil pack. The next time it stops, fuel pressure needs to be checked and have the ignition coil pack and module tested at a local parts store.
