    I have a 2000 kia Sportage and it is an automatic. It does not have alot of power for highway driving or in hills. It seems like it is always labouring and not much power at all. I checked the compression and it was 190 psi on all 4 cylinders,which I thought was good. Any suggestions on what I could check for. Thanks...

    there is a vacum port on the intake on the passenger side of car remove the cap and hook a vacum gauge to it you should have around 20 in at idle if you dont then check the timing and exhaust or possibly valve condition if you have good vacum then look at engine management.(this is alot easier than dropping exhaust or taking timing covers off)

My 2002 4X4is missing in the lower gears Please help


It could be a fuel pressure issue or the mass air flow sensor. Most fords have a fitting on the fuel rail that looks like a tire valve. You can us a tire guage to check it there. Be careful and do this as quick as you can so as not to loose to much fuel. It could cause a fire if it hits the exhaust. Cover you eyes with safety glasses or a face shield. The pressure should be above 30 psi. If the fuel pressure is good, then check the mass air flow sensor, It is located near the air filter box on the air tubing going to the throttle body. It will have a wire plugged into it. At and idle, unplug the wire, if the engine stops the MAF is good, if the engine still runs, the MAF is bad. I am old school and have learn these by trial and error. I hope this helps you find you issue. Good Luck

Engen problem and missing


Sir, your question is not very clear, but I will still try to post a solution here. Engine missing could be due to any problem in fuel system, ignition system, engine or ECM as well.

LOW ENGINE IDLE SPEED (Poor idling):
-Throttle body (do the cleaning and idle speed learning)
-A /C signal circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump
-Intake system
-P C V valve (clogged or open) and hose

ROUGH IDLING:
-Cylinder Compression
-Ignition system (Igniters, spark plugs, wiring harness)
-Spark plug fouled, gap too wide or too short. (1.00-1.1 mm)
-Fuel injector circuit
-E C M power source circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump (required pressure 44 psi - 49 psi)
-Throttle body (cleaning)
-Intake system
-P C V valve and hose
-Air fuel ratio sensor
-Heated oxygen s ens or
-Mass air flow meter
-Idle hunting
-Throttle body
-Intake system
-P C V valve and hose
-Air fuel ratio sensor
-Mass air flow meter

HESITATION/ POOR ACCELERATION:
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump
-Spark plug
-Ignition system
-Fuel injector circuit
-E C M power source circuit
-Mass air flow meter
-Throttle body (do cleaning)
-Intake system
-Valve timing
-Cylinder Compression

VERY ROUGH IDLE NO EXCELERATION


Try a few if these ideas...

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Spark Plug Fouled, Damaged, or Broken Spark Plug(s).
2 Inspect Hose (PCV) Clogged or Collapsed PCV Hoses.
3 Inspect Wireset Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
4 Inspect Distributor Worn, Damaged or Faulty Distributor.
5 Inspect Catalytic Converter Clogged or Faulty Catalytic Converter.
6 Inspect Fuel Pump Low Fuel Pressure.
7 Inspect TimingSet Slipped TimingChain or Worn TimingGear(s).
8 Inspect Knock Sensor Improperly Connected or Faulty Knock Sensor.
9 Inspect M.A.P. (Manifold Absolute Pressure) Sensor Faulty M.A.P. Sensor.
10 Inspect Throttle Position Sensor Faulty or Incorrectly Connected Throttle Position Sensor.
11 Inspect Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Damaged, Loose, or Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor or Circuit.
12 Inspect Air Cleaner Temperature Sensor Damaged or Faulty Air Cleaner Tempature Sensor.
13 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
14 Inspect Piston Ring Set Worn or Broken Piston Rings.
15 Inspect Timing Specification Incorrect Ignition Timing.
16 Inspect Fuel System Pressure Incorrect Fuel Pressure Being Delivered to Carburetor or Fuel Injection System.
17 Inspect Fuel Filter Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
18 Inspect PCV Valve Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
19 Inspect Valve Burned, Worn, or Sticking Exhaust Valves.
20 check idle stop solenoid - if faulty, could cause rough idling
21 inspect distributor cap/rotor - if burnt, could cause loss of acceleration

if your not loosing water and have white smoke it is unburnt fuel,poss the mass air sensor.(car thinks its cold so putting in double fuel for cold tickover.)

I changed the plugs & cap, rotor, wires ,coil & fuel filter. the motor is still running rough.


If there's black smoke coming out of the tail pipe check M.A.P sensor for good vacum and coolant temp. sensor, both will work like a choke, if that check's out it 's going to be a bad fuel line leaking to the injector's or a fuel regulator, both sit under the in take, getting to much fuel will make it run like it need's a tune up.

Running rough?? If i took a guess I'd say there's a faulty injector. Does it smoke like hell ?? Does it also miss at idle?- If so get a line wrench and a rag handy. Start the car and while idling wrap the rag around the base of the fuel line connector on injector 1 and crack it just a bit until fuel comes out. It might spray, thus the rag. If the miss gets worse, that ain't the injector to blame. Continue with the other 3. If you crack a line and there is no or very little change in the miss then you found the guilty party.

On a long shot it could also be a stuck valve.

Did that get it?? It sounds like an issue other than MAF but.... get a multimeter and try probing the connecter to the MAF. When you find out what it is , please let me know. I'm curious

*The key must be on*

pin 1- ignore it
pin 2- gnd = 12-14v
pins 2- 3 = 12-14v
pin 4- gnd = 5v
pins 3- 4 = 5v

P0101 - Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70): Implausible Signal

Possible Symptoms

  • Loss of Power
  • Erratic Idle
Possible Causes
  • Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70) faulty
  • Air Leak(s) after Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70)
  • Intake Air Filter dirty/faulty
  • Ground Spots corroded or Paint Residue
  • Wiring and/or Connections from/to Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check Intake Air Filter
  • Check Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70)
  • Check Ground Spots
  • Check Wiring and/or Connections from/to Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70)

Engine light on, bad fuel milage


You didn't mention if you replaced the mass air flow sensor, if the tech got that code, it needs replacing, if you haven't alresdy done so.

tighten all fuel connections from filter to injector pump to injectors because if air is allowed in (between pressure pulses) then power loss will occur.
