No heat on 02 kia sportage, a/c works great. I dont think the heater vore is bad because there is no antifreeze leaking anywhere. I changed thermostat and the radiator is full, still no heat


Follow the hoses to the heater core/firewall. When up to temp, both lines should hot, about the same temp. To hot to keep your hand on for to long. If one is a lot cooler, it's the heater core. After that I would check the controller or the blend door actuator.

Why my Kia Sportage 2002 will tend to heat up when running and the coolant is thrown outside radiotor


remove the thermostat and see if it still does the same. if it does, then you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. if the temperature stays low without a thermostat and it does not throw coolant out then replace the thermostat with a new one.

I just had the heater blower and regulator changed on my 2001 KIA Sportage and it seems the air is very cold coming out of the vents until I drive the car. always was able to heat up just running the...


sounds to me like they have removed your thermostat as this is a real good indicatiopn of that. if you dont have one in the temp of your water stays really low as it is always moving unlike when thermostatically controlled where heat opens the valve. either way the car should be fine but will need it replacing if you live realy warm climate.
