Asked by Nov 27, 2014 at 02:31 AM about the 2007 Kia Sportage

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Kia Sportage diesel. It cranks over but does not want to start. There is diesel in
the fuel rail, so the injectors are not opening to my knowledge. I have changed the crank
position sensor and the camshaft sensor as well as the brake switch. But still no luck.
Can someone please help me sort out this problem?

Also failed to mention that when I spray starting fluid in the intake, it does start, so I must have a fuel problem.
