Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Kia Sportage 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 81,000 miles
regular driving. Car began to run rough, sputter, cut-out. Got check eng, power, and hold lights. Car died. Obd reader codes as follows: throttle pos. Sensor and engine temp sensor bad. Replaced. During troubleshooting noticed no fuel pressure. Replaced fuel pump. Now pressure, but no joy for starting. Car has not started since and no longer has codes. No water in oil or visa versa. However cylinder pressure in all 4 cyl.'S is approx. 40 psi. Instead of the 140-160 it should be. What would cause all four cyl's. To read so low? Have fire, have fuel. Timing belt jump poss? If so did I ruin engine and is there anyway else to trouble shoot without pulling whole engine apart? Thank you very much for your help
have the same problem?
