I have a 1999 Kia Sportage that I just purchased about a month ago. Since then one of the cylinders has misfired and I had to fix it... now my check engine light is on again. I went to advanced auto and got 4 different codes, my mechanic told me the most important was p0343 which i'm told is for the camshaft sensor. Now my sportage will run at first but when at a stop light / sign it does not move or go above 1000 rpm....you have to have it in neutral reeving it up for about 10 minutes, horrible I know. But my point is - i've been reading about people who have the same problems with the sportage - but come to find out when they replaced the camshaft sensor the problem was not fixed until they replaced the crankshaft sensor. My question - if I just replace the crankshaft sensor, and the camshaft sensor later, will my car run fine??? Please help I need to know what to do!

Welcome to the KIA forums. I moved your question to the correct forum for you so more members will see it. If the code says camshaft sensor that would be the one to check out first , If you go to www.kiatechinfo.com it is free to register and in the shop section you can view the workshop manual for your car, it will have the correct resistance readings etc for the sensor so you can check it out to make sure it is the fault before replacing the part.
