SOURCE: timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points

Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.

Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS)

Details:
- LINK 1
- LINK 2

You're problem could likely be a problem with the TPMS, or (TirePressure Monitoring System) - sensor. There is one in each wheel, andit's recommended that with any tire changes that they be rebuilt orreplaced. I'm not sure if you've reset the tire pressure switch

Sometimes, to reset the tire pressure light you need to get the special tool.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

How to replace oil pan gasket on 05 Kia Sportage LX 2.7L?


Hello
Yes you can do the job at home but the engine must be lifted off the engine mounts to have enough room to access and remove the oil pan, a very difficult job on the ground, fairly easy on a car lift. The job at home is about a 3-4 hour job if you are an experienced car person and have the right tools, you will need a good 2-21/2 ton hydraulic floor jack (not the cheap little ones Autozone sells) and jack stands as well as a wooden block to raise the engine up so you won't damage the oil pan..

Where are the jack points on a 1987 VW golf?


The jack points are in the sill joints under the car and are marked by wedge shaped indicators. THe jack for the car has a groove that the reinforced jack points fit into. The original jack is a Y type but an ordinary scissor jack with the correct groove in the lift point would also work. Attempting to lift the vehicle at any other point may cause damage to the underside of the car.

Lifting

The following instructions must be carried out before raising the vehicle off the ground.

  • Use a solid level ground surface.
  • Apply hand brake.
  • Select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector.
Note: If the propeller shafts are to be removed, reference must be made to the relevant operation. To avoid damage occurring to the under body components of the vehicle the following jacking procedures must be adhered to.

DO NOT POSITION JACKS OR AXLE STANDS UNDER THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS:
  • Body structure other than approved jacking points
  • Bumpers
  • Fuel lines
  • Fuel tank
  • Brake lines
  • Front or rear suspension arms
  • Transfer box
  • Steering linkage
  • Front or rear differential units
  • Engine sump
  • Automatic gearbox
NOTE: For certain repair operations, it may be necessary to support the engine under the sump. In this case, a block of hardwood or a rubber block should be positioned on the jack lifting cup to protect sump. Vehicle jack
The jack provided with the vehicle is only intended for use in an emergency, for changing a tyre. DO NOT use the jack for any other purpose. Refer to Owner's Handbook for vehicle jack location points and procedure. Never work under a vehicle supported solely by the vehicle jack.

Hydraulic jack
A hydraulic jack with a minimum 1500 kg, (3,300 lbs) load capacity must be used.

WARNING: Do not commence work on the underside of the vehicle until suitable axle stands have been placed in their correct position. Always chock the wheels when jacking. The handbrake may be ineffective when the wheels are off the ground. Raising and supporting the vehicle
To assist in raising the vehicle, jacking points are provided as shown in the following illustrations.

If any damage occurs to the washers on the front mounting points of the rear sub-frame, then the washers must be replaced. Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack. Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

Wheel-free lift
The following warning must be read before attempting to lift the vehicle.

WARNING: The vehicle cannot be supported safely in a wheel-free condition using the wheel-free facility of a four post ramp, and under no circumstances must this method be employedA wheel free condition may only be achieved on a four post ramp by raising each end of the vehicle and positioning axle stands beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox. WARNING: The front and rear suspension lower arms must NOT be used as lifting / jacking points. Alternatively, support the vehicle on an approved two post lift with the arms of the lift beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between the lifting equipment and the jacking points to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox.
