Have a 99 sportage, had a few issues. Car takes a lot of cranking to get started and I have to massage the gas pedal. Once started it idles fine but once I put it in gear it chokes and stalls out. Any suggestions on this?

Had a few problems before all this. Car overheated and blew main hose. Replaced hose, thermostat(this was the overheating issue), tempature sensor. Prior to that is was running rough. When I opened the spark plug well found oil in there. Cleaned really good and replaced plugs, wires and boots.

Any help on this would be great.

How bad was the overheating? Check compression of engine. Oil in spark-plug wells means gaskets need replacing.
