2002 kia sportage, 2.0L automatic trans. 2WD, 2 door w/removable half roof
hey guys and gals, i have a 2002 sporty with the 2.0L and auto trans. with over 130,XXX miles. this is my wifes car and she is happy for the most part with the power it has. i live in a pretty hilly area and i'm not quite so much of a fan as my wife is about the power this thing has. now i realize that this is a high mileage four cylinder so i'm not looking to do burn outs with it. but i would like to climb a decent hill without getting passed by semi's and school buses. any ideas on how to get a little more umph out of this motor? i have tried setting it to power mode but it doesn't drive any different than it does in econ mode. thanks for the help.
