Hello my 2000 Kia sportage all of a sudden developed a problem. It has 69,500 miles on it and it runs fine shakes slightly when running however, the past week or so, it would start, idle for about 10 sec and then stall. When I go to start it, it cranks fast but won't start. It will only start after I crank it for a while. Then it runs. I'm not sure if it will do anything, but I was going to replace the plugs, wires, fuel filter and air filter.I already replaced the PCV Valve. I'm the 2nd owner and have never given it a full tune up yet. Any ideas if this might work? I was told that maybe I have water in the fuel, but I'm not to convinced. Please help so I can get rid of this thing and buy a Honda. Thank you for your time. Also is there anything else I should do for the tune up?
