Doesn't look like an easy fix? Good luck.
Potential Symptoms

There will likely be no noticeable symptoms along with this code other than the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp), commonly known as Check Engine Light illumination. However, there may be noticeable fuel odors in some cases.
Causes

A P0453 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:

  • Open on FTP sensor signal wire
  • Short to voltage on FTP sensor signal wire
  • Bad FTP sensor
  • Abnormally high pressure in fuel tank due to blockage in EVAP purge hoses or overfilled tank
  • Loose/damaged FTP sensor connector
  • Loss of ground to the sensor

Will defective vaccum hoses on front axle effect the way the engine runs on a 2000 kia sportage?


Vacuum leaks work like this. A small hose breaks, you don't notice a engine problem, but the gas mileage goes down a bit. As the leak progresses, mileage goes down more. A large leak you notice the engine runs rough at idle. Combine this with clogged air, fuel filters and clogged catalytic converters and it will start killing the engine at stops and eventually go down the road. But to answer your question, No the line going to the diff, wont affect the engine performance. Because the PCM will compensate for the small leak. More fuel.

Symptoms 2000 kia sportage Symptoms 2000 kia sportage does not do all the time. Starts runs well but driving road 50mph almost as if ignition shut off split 2nd. Stop car and while running in drive s


Some makers used Vacuum releases for their emergency brakes which had a Vacuum switch connected to the shift assembly. This would account for a stumble if Vacuum vented out through this switch.

More common for shifting stumble to occur from Park to Drive, engaging a load on the engine, not to stumble to a freewheeling Park position. Sounds like idle speed control is sluggish to stabilize the motor.

You also have idle speed control problem with A/C, kind of shows that A/C was what kept the engine running because when you turned the A/C off, the car died.

I am going to give you some Websites for wiring diagrams. Alldatadiy.com amd Autozone.com with free wiring info upon registering your vehicle.

It seems that the base Idle speed control is not working and the A/C idle speed control is.

Also check for Vacuum leaks on the intake manifold by spraying water from a pumpbottle on the seams of the gaskets.

Check ignition Relay or ignition switch for random cutouts. The fusebox layout is on the Autozone site.

I hope my solution helps.

Have a 2000 Kia Sportage with following codes P0116, P0453, pending p1309.


I would probably clear the codes and drive it to see what if any codes come back again.
Code 116 is for the coolant temp sensor being below standard, meaning the sensor is telling the computer the engine is cold when it should be warmed up. Could be a faulty sensor or the engine is low on coolant or it really is cold and the thermostat is faulty.
Code 453 is for the EVAP system pressure sensor being high - the computer vents the gas tank while you are driving and the sensor detected a high pressure in the tank or the vent system.
Code 1309 is for a sensor called the Chassis Accelerator Sensor - it detects motion in the vehicle. It is usually mounted somewhere in the engine compartment.

2000 kia sportage rough idle after warm up


You could try and adjust your idle.

Check your idle air control valve.

Make sure there are no fluids leaking and that your emissions lights are not showing up like check engine this could mean there is an issue and there should be a readable code for this.

It could be something as simple as a spark plug wire or plug possibly even a coil pack.

It is real tough to judge for sure could be many things start with the elbow grease stuff first then move on to stuff that may have an expense.

2000 kia sportage ex, 4 cyl.


Yes there is a sensor that controls Fuel/air ratio.It's called a MAF (mass air flow sensor)
But I think you should have the EGR (Exhaust gas recirculation)valve checked
and The TPS (throttle position sensor)maybe dirty.

Although may things can cause this issue,I would look at the items above first.

Kia problem


You should get the codes checked and start from there. My Kia Sportage was also backfiring and running rough, after checking the codes. It had misfires on two cylinders. I did a tune up and had to replace one of the ignition coils. Now it runs great!
