SOURCE: Can't put gas in ank

You'll have to lay down to see it, but use a light if needed, and look up at hoses going from filler (where you put gas in) to tank, my guess is that one of them has a kink in it. Smaller one is vent/overflow, larger one is for fuel to tank. By the sounds of it, if this didn't occur for sometime, Kia, may have a technical service bulletin or recall on it if both are doing the same thing, so it wouldn't hurt to give their service dept a quick call in case it's a free repair.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sportage ex, 4 cyl.

For that many codes I would refer you to a bulletin covering the 123 and 124 connectors. This bulletin has instructions on how to upgrade these 2 connectors which connect the engine to the ECM. The connectors are located under the intake manifold towards the firewall. You need to remove the battery, pull the connectors apart, give the male side a slight twist, then you add Stabulent 22 to the connectors and reconnect. The dealerships also add some clips to hold the connectors together better. This task is not an easy one due to the location of the connector. I have done it many times in the past and this helped many of my costomers. Anither thing to check is the continuity to ground at the MAF. This also can indicate bad connection throughout the engine harness. to upgrade this connection, clean the ground connections at the battery and under the battery tray. these simple uperations should have been made into normal maintenance for the 95 - 99 Sportages.

While pumping gas into my kia sportage, gas overflows back out


First thing to ask, Did you turn the engine off and taken keys out, because I know some folk who around this time is cold outside and leave the engine running while filling up, and this happens. If not, you got a promblem here, The vent valve is damaged, this is located between the pipe going down to your gas tank and where you are filling up. The vent valve, and filler pipe is one unit and will need to be replaced to solve your promblem.

2000 kia sportage trouble code po171 once in awhile,runs lean when cold,ok warm. i have 2 of these cars, changed over , map, tps ,idle sensors. also changed fuel injectors, filters ,fuel pump,fuel pressure...


I have 2005 Kia Sportage with a check engine light. No other symptoms. I was told by Kia and Local mechanic that it is the fuel injectors. Error Code states that Fuel injectors are running lean. Put Master airflow- no change. Ran engine test with propane to run rich and trim never changed from 15. Car runs great. Kia dealer said that this is because we use Ethel in gas that it effects the alumium fuel rail delivery to the injectors and that it is necessary to change all of them .Kia Dealer wants $1,000.00 deposit to place order 6 fuel injectors from Kia. (Has anyone heard of that?)Also put fuel injector cleaner in tank.Does anyone have any suggestions before I spend over $1,000.00 to replace all 6 injectors or possible idea of what could be wrong?

2005 Kia Sportage kills when release of gas pedal


Sounds like a faulty engine warning light and a problem with one of your vacuum hoses. This is difficult to find. Probable just an old cracked hose or loose connection. Propose this to your dealer. Just keep taking it back and tell them to check all of the vacuum hoses and the computer. Good Luck
