Look to see if you have a vacuum line off behind the throttle body and look over the engine to see if any hoses are off or cracked but also a plugged fuel filter can do the same thing

Replace spark plugs, air filter , check fuel filter and pump. If you checked distribution and is ok it can also be a problem with valves, check if there is oil on top of spark plugs.

My RPM meter is not working...it's always on 0.


I used to have a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the same symptoms; my mechanic replaced the speed sensor ($65) and the problem went away. Take the car to auto zone and ask them to plug the computer, they normally do it free of charge. If it is the sensor, you may have to buy at the dealer.

Fuel pump.


I have a 2000 ford focus and there was a recall for a defective fuel pump. THe dealership replaced it for free. You should check Ford recalls for this problem.

Sluggish performance on 2000 Kia Sportage


My theory is that it could be the injectors clogging. You could first try running a higher octane fuel, then if that doesn't seem to help try using the minimal amount of gas, and add injector cleaner to the tank. If all of this fails to work you can take your vehicle to the dealership where they can run a system analysis on it and help you pinpoint the problem. Hope this was helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.
