I just purchaced a 2000 Sportage and am having the same problem. I did find that Autozone.com has a free online manual that you can view and print sections from. I would rather have a book at my side when I repair my car, but until somebody comes up with one we are stuck with the online services.
The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side. The blower motor stopped working on my 99 Sportage and I was able to get it working by disconnecting the plug and cleaning the terminals with a wire brush. I have not had any problems with the blower since. Concerning the repair manual, the only available in print are only available through Kia directly and I believe they costs around 100 dollars when I checked. I was able to purchase a copy of Mitchell service and maintenance manual off of ebay a few years ago for about 30 dollars. It is not as good as a book manual, but it does have all of the wiring diagrams and some troubleshooting tables.
The car sounds exactly the way it has sounded ever since I bought it six months ago. I once had a car's muffler...
