Customer Question
My 2001 sportage just quit...
My 2001 sportage just quit running today like the key was turned off while driving. It would crank over but was dead like the coil went out. Can hear the fuel pump run when the key is turned on. Wish it was just a fuse somewhere but am probably not that lucky.
