Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
Loseing fuel on the sportage has 2.0L engine in it no leaks from tank or lines but can smell the fuel when first started in the morning and the heat turned on....were can i look now?....(no visible leaks on engine ither)
I had exactly the same problem. The problem was with the fuel line clamps directly under the air plenum on the right side of the engine, right above the fuel injectors. The solution is to replace the factory spring clamps with proper hose clamps - a buck each. The real problem is that to get at the inside clamp, you have to remove the air plenum. It took me about 90 minutes to get it off and the same to reassemble. Not all that difficult, just very time consuming.
