Re: 2001 kia sportage driving home car died at 50mph
Look in side the panels in the rear of the car, on the inside next to the tell lights, there should be a red button on a switch, push the button and turn the key on if you dont hear anything then your pump is bad or the wiring to the pump went bad, known to rought on the plug

Need a little more info: Is it a V-6? Does it just die at random times? Kia has had problems with crank shaft position sensors. The vehicle will just die and may restart immediately or take several minutes till it will restart.
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 would disconnect the battery for three minutes and reconnect it. That should remove the code. You will have drive the car up to about 75 miles to see if the code does or does not show up again. It may have been reading the amount of air in the system from removal of the injector.
