Is the 1998 through 2001 engine the same on all KIA Sportage EXs?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, the engine used in the KIA Sportage EX can vary depending on the year and model. The 1998-2001 Kia Sportage EX models are likely to have either a 2.0L DOHC I4 engine (year 1998-2000) or a 2.0L DOHC V6 engine (year 2001). It's important to check the specific year and model to confirm the engine type.

Asked by Wiki User

Low fuel pressure in a KIA after being parked overnight could be caused by a failing fuel pump, a clogged fuel filter, or a leak in the fuel system. It could also be due to a faulty fuel pressure regulator or a problem with the fuel injectors.

I have a 1999 KIA Sportage and experience the mysterious hard starting problem on an intermittent basis. I have found a solid shot of starter fluid into the air intake line just behind the Mass Airflow Sensor usually does the trick. As to why the problem exists or what is the root cause of the problem, that is still quite the enigma. Hope it helps. AD

Open both front doors, remove everything, replace heater core, reinstall everything. Don't laugh, that is pretty much what you have to do. If you want to tackle the job yourself I would suggest purchasing a shop manual for that vehicle to help you through step by step.

How do you removie a 2006 Kia Sportage radio?

Radio Removal 2004 Spectra/2005 Spectra

I have a 2005 Spectra...I have been told they are the same with removal of the radio.

First, remove the two screws located in the plastic trim, just above the clear lens of the speedometer assembly. These two screws are the only things holding the plastic in that goes all the way around the stereo and climate controls. Carefully insert a flat tool (flathead screwdriver) between the trim surrounding the radio and dashboard. The trim will easily pop off. Be careful not to break any of the spring action clips that hold the trim snug to the dash. Use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the radio from the mount you see, four screws in all. The radio slides out from behind the trim and you unplug two wires and the wiring harness. There's a little tab on the top of the harness that needs to be depressed. Once it's pushed in, this should slide right out and you are ready for a new stereo.

The front O2 sensor is located at the bottom of the heat shield just before you get to the exhaust. It has a wire connected to it. Hard to miss. You will have access to this from the top of the car.

Resetting check engine light on Kia Sportage?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Repair the source, light will go out if that was the only problem. There are "monitors" or self tests the computer runs the car through a drive cycle, if a problem occurs, it may not run all of the self tests until that problem is taken care. Therefore, another problem may exist. It is emission related. OR hook up a scanner that is capable of clearing codes, and hope that none are still active. Disconnecting the battery can create other headaches and will not likely solve your dilemma. Best bet is to contact the local snap-on dealer and have him refer you to a known good shop that specializes in this technology-he will know. The " check engine light" is by far one of the most misunderstood technological advances by the public. This is an needed in-depth understanding for the public. It is a warning light that is illuminated when there is a problem affecting the EMISSION SYSTEM only. Emission system being the pollution control system. Don't get a hard on against it as it is a good thing once you understand it. One point that was brought up a a recent meeting of technicians was that the amount of hydrocarbons is greater when the gas cap is left off than when the engine is running. Hydrocarbons are part of pollution emitted as gasoline evaporates. Going a step farther, one facet of the emission system is the "Evaporative" portion. This is when the fumes from the gasoline are leaking from the system into the outside air. This is one part of the emission system that can trigger a check engine light. I would say that about 7% of the vehicles that have a check engine light are the result of a loose or inadequate gas cap. But understand that many scenarios are possible with the "check engine light" The vehicle's powertrain computer (note that some vehicles have 17 different computers) will run a series of self-tests. They will only run under certain criteria. And they can be vastly different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some self-tests are not run until preceding ones have run successfully. So if there is a problem in one particular area that is preventing another self test from running, you can have a situation where one problem is fixed, but another still exists. If you fix a problem and drive the car through a drive cycle that sets the monitor (or self test) the light will go off as it passes that criteria that triggered it in the first place. After 1996, the auto industry went to a idea called OBD II (on board diagnostics). This was to get all the manufacturers onto a similar plane for troubleshooting and powertrain control. While they still differ vastly, many corrections and adaptations were made for technicians to better fix the check engine light problems. Prior to this there were so many different and poor troubleshooting data from a check engine light problem that resolving the problem was much more difficult. Many early warning light of this nature were set to illuminate based on mileage. An Oxygen sensor was one of the things that were meant to be replaced when that mileage was hit. This is much like many current "Change oil lights

It sounds like what mine is doing also, FINALLY set a code, PO101, MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor). My MPG is also suffering. It could also just need a new fuel filter. Need to check and see if the fuel pressure is right or if it is getting fuel at all.
