Question about 2001 Kia Sportage

Open Question

My 2001 Kia Sportage will be driving along and all of a sudden die. Some times the dash lights flicker and some times the gas pedal can keep it from stalling temporarily. Any ideas?

This doesn't happen every time sometimes I can go days without it dying and other days like today it died 3 times in a period of 10 mins.

Jumped time. If it runs ruff I would do that too much, you could bend a value.

Fairly common problem, you just need a new timing belt.

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

maybe your fuel pump stop working or a blown fuse for the fuel pump or ignition coil. First checked for blown fuses

I've have the same problem with my 2001 kia sportage and found this is a very common problem with this vehical per vehical complaint website. Kia is not sure why this happens and has no fix. If you find something that works please share with rest of us. Good luck :(

SOURCE: Kia dies while driving (dashboard lights dies too)

Mine was doing this when I'd drive over bumpy roads. Noone could figure it out, till someone happened to check my battery cables. One of my battery cables was super loose and everytime I'd hit a bump, it would lose connection for a split second and shut the computer down, thus shutting off my Kia while driving.
Check the cables and make sure the cables are tight and the connections all look good.

2001 Kia Sportage goes dead while driving plus gas spews out when refueling


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.

Need a repair shop to diagnose it

You never should have thrown one part at it.

Most mechanic shops would be able to check the fuel pressure coming from your fuel pump. Before you do that, try replacing your fuel filter. If your fuel filter has gotten clogged, there may be enough resistance to kill the motor. It is possible that you have some other obstruction in your fuel system, like a clogged fuel line that will also cause this problem.
