2002 Kia Sportage Repair Question
2002 kia sportage: engine light blinking, runs very sluggishly and backfires some,any help?
Could be a timing issue, or any number of other problems. The CEL blinking usually means there is a problem that is causing damage to the catalytic converter. This could be an injector fault, an O2 sensor fault, or a problem with the MAF/MAP sensor causing the computer to signal the injectors to inject too much fuel.
Have it scanned for codes and let us know what they tell you.
