2001 kia sportage 2WD automatic transmission problems

2001 kia sportage has an automatic tansmission, RWD, 4 cylinder.
i was driving at 65-70 MPH and it seemed like it wasnt getting gas
(i had a full tank) so i shifted into neutral and reved the engine, no problem, i shifted back into drive and it felt like it wasnt getting gas again. I pulled over checked oil, water, and transmission fluids and everything was fine. i shut the vehicle off waited a few minutes and started it back up. reved the engine in park, ran fine, threw it in drive and drove with no problems. soon after it felt like it was running out of gas (sputtering along and idleing irradicly ) its starts at about
5000 RPM and slowly works its way down to around 2500 RPM. it hasnt died yet.

can you give me any ideas.?

    alternator going bad and not enough power to run system or a bad ground from the body or battery to the motor or a speed sensor or a wire running to any of these. Find a backyard mechanic in kijiji or local bulletin board and have codes read. Do not replace any unit until all vacuums to it and wires are checked first.

    check to see if Catylitic converter isn't getting real hot and is plugged.. Usually you would have smelled rotton eggs before it went and you may hear a hissing noise under the car as the gas tries to escape elsewhere since it's plugged. this will overheat an engine and ruin your headgasket - big problem with cavaliers and sunfires.

Losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)


Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

What is the hold light mean?


Assuming a first generation Sportage, sounds like a problem with the vehicle speed sensor on the back of the transfer case (4wd) or transmission extension housing (2wd).

Could be as simple as a corroded/broken wire, through to a malfunction in the sensor. Take it to Autozone and get the codes read and let us know what they are (to be absoluteluy sure...).
