Tune-up new coils new all intake gaskets new 190Lbs. Compression misfires under load to the point of ck. eng. lite flashing

whith the kia running at idle there is a pronounced high pitch squeeling noise, most of the time when you start driving the noise dissapates to the point where it seems to go away until back down to idle,had new belts put on and still same. can it be an idler pulley on one of the belts maybe worn out and doing the sqeeling or power steering unit, please i really need to figure this out, sometimes its so loud that it is embarrassing to drive. any input from anyone with kia sportage doing the same thing (as I have seen several other kia sportages with the same telltale sound)

ive replaced the battery but the vehicle still gets no power. no lights on the inside, no power to the lights. Dead

My girl friends car will start but the engine seems to shake badly and stalls very easily. Is this just an air filter problem our something serious?


Book says to change filter but I thought it was in the tank??? Is there an external fuel filter also?? Thanks

Only when i fill up the tank does it happen, but the car starts then the rpm's fall and the car dies. Can get it started if I give it gas and start driving right away, can't idle or it dies again. What would cause this?
