Having problems with your 1999 Kia Sportage ?
XT6 startup problem
\015 Hey Soobies. My '88 XT6 (2wd), recently started having severe idleing problems\015\012 after it's been sitting for a few hours. It'll rev up a little on that first\015\012 key turn, then immediately the revs fall and it cuts off. To get around this\015\012 I've been holding the accel down to about 2K rpms for a minute or so. Then\015\012 it's fine. Also it really hesitates sometimes during the first few minutes of\015\012 driving.\015\012\015\012I've had it tuned, had the injectors cleaned, and had the switch changed that\015\012 tells the car if it's cold outside or not (forgot what that one's called). I\015\012 love the car, but I can't stand this problem. Even the dealer is stumped.\015\012 Suggestions?\015\012Got a problem just after startup, it starts fine, then runs very rough for about a minute. Not even enough power to get moving. Then all of a sudden it clears and everything is fine. I've changed the fuel filter, checked fuel lines, no problem there but the startup problem persists. Any hints appreciated !\015
Idle speed control problems. check fuel pressure. also change air filter.
