My question is and may be yours, Is there a fuel pump reset switch that can trip and I need to reset?
This is what happened to my sportage:
I have a similar problem with my 98 sportage not starting. I just had the radiator hose break off of the top of the radiator and sprayed antifreeze all over engine. I did not pull over in time and the car temp went from hot to very hot and shut down. I coasted into a parking lot to see that the hose broke off. After it cooled down a few hours, added new anti freeze, fixed the connection and the car would turn over but not start. I have gone thru all the stages off checked to see if anything froze or the block cracked, but no water in the oil, I have compression, and I checked the starting coils for a spark and they are good. So if I have compression and spark it must be fuel related and I figure I shorted out something. I checked all fuses but now need to check the fuel pump which I have found out it in the rear of the car at gas tank. My question is and may be yours, Is there a fuel pump reset switch that can trip and I need to reset?
