Unfortunately I am having the same issue as of lunch time. (VERY Depressing) I have a 2001 Sportage I bought 3 years ago. Never had a real serious problem with it until this year when I have to replace the battery alternator and spark plugs which I was expecting with as much as I drive it. I bought it with 15,000 and I have 86,000 on it now.
But the thing that got me upset is I tried starting it a few times and it wouldnt fire. It sounded like it was turning. I stopped sit for a minute and tried it a few more times before it finally fired. Now the check engine light is on and the HOLD light is blinking.
Is it safe to drive? I love my car and want to know how to do this myself if possible. Work is letting me borrow there truck so I am gonna leave my car here overnight.
I read somewhere that water on the trans controller connector could cause the erratic auto transmission operation. I drove through 4 storms of this weekend. I mean serious down pour till you can't see 10 feet in front of you. It did it again yesterday while I was at work. Then yesterday afternoon. it wouldnt start after two tries then the third it did. So I didn't think anything of it.
sorry for the long message. Any comments to help me out?
