Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Kia Sportage Four Wheel Drive Automatic 106000 miles
I have a 99 Kia Sportage. It wouldn't start reliably, but when the relays were tapped on while someone tried to start it, it would start. My father in law is a mechanic, so he said the logical choice was to replace the relays. After that was done, the Kia wouldn't start at all. He began digging and somehow determined that the fuel relay system and the fuel line both needed replaced, so we bought the parts and he fixed that. Tonight, he put everything back together and the Kia was getting much better fuel pressure and was expected to start. Of course it didn't. I'm at a complete loss and he now thinks that it may have something to do with the crankshaft sensor, but I do not want to continue to pay for parts that may or may not be necessary to get the vehicle to just run at this point. The person driving the vehicle knew it was old and was happy just to have a vehicle that would get them where they wanted to go even if it did cause a big of a hassle, but at in trying to make it better it seems that we don't even have a vehicle that runs anymore. Please help.
have the same problem?
