The radiator thermostat may be stuck. I've had that before. Just about any auto part store should have an employee that can help if you need it. Its a quick and easy fix/replacement. You'll definitely want to check your radiator coolant level as well.

SOURCE: green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage

That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.

I have the same problems but found the problem. Put a vacuum pump on the hub and see if there is any. I have one that has 30 inches of vacuum and one with zero. The only solution I found was to buy a used one from a salvage yard. The hand vacuum pump is only $40 but you will save over a $1000 doing this.

Your Tire Pressure Management System is extremely sensitive. Some makes are known to trip with just 5-8 psi. difference. Have the pressure checked again on all tires including the spare. Make sure the spare is up to proper inflation. VERY important. It is possible that the sensor inside the tire as well as any wiring associated with the system under the wheel wells could have been damaged. Start by making sure the pressures are all within system range. The owners manual will stipulate this and all info you may need to troubleshoot on your own. good luck.

How to replace the stop lamp switch on a 2011 kia sportage


There's a switch on the brake pedal arm that turns the light on when you press the brake pedal.
The switch needs to be adjusted or replaced.
Hope this helps.

Deceleration noise


I would have to say that your front wheel bearings are no good and need replacing that is the usual sound they make and the pitch changes threw out the driving speeds and corners I would say.

I hear a loud metal on metal noise when i drive over 15 mph from my front tire and sometimes feel vibration under drivers left foot


That sounds like your brake caliper has engaged on the front drivers side and not releasing which has eaten up your brake pads. Suggest you pull the hub and brake pad out and check whether the piston is retracking as it should.

My Kia Sportage sounds like a hover craft....LOUD whistling, when I turn the wheel to the left or put the brake on it stops for just a moment...it is driving me crazy!


difficult one this as without my greasy hands have a look but i would hazard a guess and say it sounds like the air filter on the back of the servo is blocked ,but i cannot place it making a noise when turning the wheel unless its something different ,could even be a vacumn leak somewhere ,to be honest this is a catch 22 question and i would suggest you ask a local mechanic to have a look and post what he says

2002 kia optima,,, whining noise that stops when turning left


power steering pump probably went out.. if you can easily get at the belt and are any kind of mechanically inclined, remove the drive belt to the p/s pump and then start the car if the noise is gone then its probably part of the power steering pump

The noise is almost for sure the brake pad being worn out and metal to metal with the brake rotor, if this is the case don't drive the car until it is fixed, very dangerous.
