Hello, I have some very strange problems on my car. Car is KIA Sportage 2.0 TD 83HP year 2000 4wd.
So I will basically start to explain you the problem hope we can get a fix :
Sometimes even if it is warm or cold engine rpm indicator starts going crazy jumping up and down, but engine does not actually increases rpm in reality it just becomes sluggish. Car feels like it looses power and its shaking back and forward but when I put the gas pedal to the floor it tends to get better and the rpm indicator doesn't go crazy anymore, and engine runs more smoothly but I can still fell the loss of power. It usually happens when engine is warm and after 2000 rpm. I had the following errors on the OBD1 :
Intake Air Temperature Sensor.
Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor.
Atmospheric Pressure Sensor.
Pressure Regulator Control Solenoid Valve
Idle Speed Control Solenoid Valve.
Distributor no Signal. Or Injector No. 3 open or short. (Not sure which one)
Power Stage Group 2 Malfunction (inside ECM). Idle Speed Control Valve Failure or Damaged Power Stage.
What should I do? I am not a mechanic but I know friends that are but they are not experts on kia, they work with other cars from the same year, different brands. So what should I try to change first? Do I have to change all those things?
Engine: 2.0 TD 83hp 4wd
