I have a 2001 Kia Sportage. I have loss of power when trying to accelerate. Took it to the dealer and the timing belt was replaced along with general maintenance of plugs, belts, oil change, transmission fluid change, coolant flush and refill and other basics. Also said the catalytic converter was bad and this was replaced since vehicle was under warranty with manifold, exhaust pipe gaskets, etc. That went with this. We drove the vehicle 60 miles on the return trip home from the dealer and the power loss started again. When you try to accelerate the vehicle it won't pick up speed and at times won't pick up speed no matter what you try. It also seems to do it more often once the vehicle engine has gotten warmed up, not at cold start. The vehicle has 66,500 miles on it and just spent over $800.00 to service it. Any ideas?
