Unplug ecm connector engine control module has faulty connectors due to pins I recommend to unplug and plug connector and try to start, module is located under passenger front seat frontal foot area you need to remove a cover before you do the actual disconnection touch the door striker to rid your
self of static electricity. also check relays for fuel pump and ecm power on right side of engine compartment (as you would sit on
driver seat) (buy kia relays) and for danerl p possible faulty ignition
coils and spark plugs due to arking, replaced spark plugs wires too, check valve cover for leaking oil into spark plugs possible codes po300 -po304 set .

SOURCE: starting probems on a 1998 kia sportage no power to fuel pump

Easy to test pump. Takes two people. Disconnect fuel line at carburator and hold end in a catch can. Turn over engine. Does fuel come out. Yes, problem is not fuel pump. No, proplem may be pump or might be clogged fuel line or a fuse. rule out fuses first (cheapest) fuse will be labeled fuel pump. Don't jump your fuel pump while it's in the car. OK to jump it on a test bench but in the car full of fuel is a bad combination with sparks....

SOURCE: want to replace fuel pump need help to where its at and how to do

the fuel pump is in the fuel tank...and is accessible from the top of the fuel tank.  On some cars you can remove the flooring on the rear of the car and find an access panel to get to the fuel tank.  Other cars you need to remove the straps that hold on the fuel tank.  Do the job when the tank is empty.  Good luck

2000 kia sportage car won't run untill you pour gas in the intake then it will till the gas is used up

Sounds like your not getting fuel. Turn key on and listen by gas tank and see if you hear a buzz sound. if you don't you'll need to replace the fuel pump.

2000 Kia Sportage won't start

My guess would be something has happened to the fuel pump in the tank. I would make sure the pump has voltage when cranking the engine to verify.

My 2000 kia sportage is having fuel pump problems sometimes the fuel pump doesnt pump at all. ive checked the ground on the fuel pump, the fuse is good, and i dont know if theres a fuel cut off switch....

it sounds like the problem is the pump will probably have to have the pump replaced to correct the problem.this is how a bad pump acts when its worn out and needs replacing.replace the fuel filter at the same time
