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.

Rough idle

Hello Patricia. Their are several common problems with this year Sportage that makes it run rough. The most common problem is clogged fuel injectors caused by a rusty gas tank. Their is a recall for this concern but even if the vehicle already had the gas tank and fuel injectors replaced that does not mean you do not have the problem as the replacement gas tanks also rust out. to check for this you should remove the fuel filter and drain the gas out of it into a clear container. Blow thru the outlet so unfiltered fuel is drained into the container. If the fuel is rusty you will need to replace the fuel tank,filter and injectors and then flush out all the fuel lines. Another common problem causing a rough idle with this year is the camshaft timing being incorrect. This is caused by a loose timing belt or sometimes the keyway on the crankshaft breaks so the crankshaft sprocket turns on the shaft. This means that when the timing marks for TDC cylinder 1 are lined up everything looks good but in reality the sprocket is lined up but the crankshaft is not at true TDC. I think their may be a TSB for this. Dont forget to also look for vacuum leaks. If the problem started after spark plugs where replaced you may want to check for a disconnected vacuum line at the rear of the manifold. The manifold comes off to replace the spark plugs and it is very common that the technician forgets to put this vacuum line back on. Hope this helps.

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.

Have 2002 Yukon that won't start if under 3/8 or 1\4 of gas

hi, the banging on the tank is a typical fuel pump scenario , but to last for years is not very likely , i think it needs to be diagnosed to see what's missing when it wont start .
