Why would the engine still be running after the keys have been pulled out of a 2000 Kia Sportage?

Because the ignition switch is defective.

If not, then you may be be "dieseling" - meaning run on of the engine - that is BAD and you have to find out why it is doing that - usually something is misadjusted in the engine's carburetor or fuel injection system (usually a mechanical control)

what year ? if it is say 2000 sportage with double overhead cam, possible real damage done, this IS an interference engine. In english, if timing belt breaks while engine is running severe damage can be done to valves, cams, pistons,etc. A $50.00 timing belt could easily cost you now $2500.00 to repair engine. If it just broke sitting still and NOT running, $ 458.00 to fix ,include water pump , it is driven by timing belt.

If the engine is running it is using fuel.

Yes it will, engine coolant still flows through it when engine is running.

yes. you are still moving in a direction, and the wheels are still spinning, and the engine is still running, and the transmission is still being used.

I've seen this happen in Honda's. Does it remain running for long periods of time or never shut off? If it is only running for a short time, it's cooling off your engine still because it's still really hot. There's nothing wrong with this.

The engine coolant fan can keep running after the engine is turned off in any car because the temperature gauge is in the radiator. As long as the radiator is still hot, the fan will keep running until the temperature gauge says it has cooled enough.

A coolant leak while the engine is running is likely in the water return hoses. The vehicle can be standing still and in park, but with the engine running the fluids are still being pushed through the system to keep the engine cool. The water return lines generally run from the top left of the radiator when you are standing at the front of the car looking at the engine. Any leak in that system will likely not continue once the engine is stopped as the fluid no longer is pushed through the system.

I have a 1999 with 200,000 miles on it and still running strong.

this happened on me, it turned out to be the earth strap from the engine to the chassis had gone rotten and broke loose, this stopped the engine from running but it would still turn over

Is footloose still running

Your car can only create cold air if the engine is running to make the coolant work correctly. If your car is idle, your engine is still hot but your engine isn't running so the air you are receiving is actually air heated by the engine.

On some makes of vehicle, the engine fan is supposed to keep running after the engine is shut off, if it was operating on a long trip on a hot day, for example. Come back to the car in 10-15 minutes. If the fan is still running, you have a problem. If it has shut off, all is well.

If it is a diesel engine, both will power it (parallel) still running 12 volts

Could be that your idle speed is too high, or engine is running too hot causing the PMC to deliver a richer mixture,

User Avatar

yes it is still running!

User Avatar

Bad alternator? A fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running With engine running should read approx. 13.8-14.2 volts

User Avatar

No. But if the problem still exists you could start or try to start the engine and see if the code comes back.

User Avatar

bad starter, or switch, or a short in the wiring. hope it helps. duboff

User Avatar

if your car is still running fine it usually an o2 senser

carries water from and to the engine to the radiator for cooling, there are 2 and contain hot water when the engine is running and will still be hot and pressurerised for an hour after the motor is shut off.
