Just because it may be a "new" car that is already 3 years old, that doesn't mean that it won't have problems. do you take care of it? services regularly, oil changes regularly? a car only lasts as long as the owner wants it to. that being said, once a year to get something fixed under warranty isn't bad at all. i'd stick with the car you already have instead of buying another new one. you'll save money in the long run and if your worried about it, get an extended warranty that covers the whole car except normal maintenance items. that way you'll be covered and you won't be breaking the bank.

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage. To get it to start you have to turn it over 5 times but if you give it a little gas it starts right up. What could cause this?

It's 14 years old. Whatever is controlling the injectors isn't giving it that little starting squirt anymore. You will have to remember to do it on your own.

The last 5-6 I have gotten gas, 2005 Sportage hard to start at gas pump, but then fine after a few miles - mechanic is clueless!

Your code, assuming it was evap related, also means other issues aside from a loose gas cap. Your fuel system "closes" down to purge unburned fuel back through the engine. A loose gas cap will stop this process, as in why the check engine light will go on. Also, there is a vent solenoid, purge solenoid, fuel tank pressure sensor, and a charcoal canister that are involved. My guess, but if you have a bad vent solenoid, you may have symptoms like yours. Any "good" technician can test this for you.

Missfiring of engine


Cleaning plugs is not enough you will have to replace them. Ensure that they are the correct type of spark plug for the engine also, Don't try and skimp to save money because it will cost you alot more further down the track if the incorrect plugs are fitted. Get your High Tension Leads(Spark plug leads) checked as well,
Check that your air filter is clean also, if not replace this if it hasn't been done recently....last 10,000 km.

Another thing to have checked as well is the Oxygen sensor this maybe faulty.
And lastly have your cold start tempreture sensor checked this maybe faulty. Start with the plugs first then work your way through it. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
