If the cap is not ontop of the Radiator itself it means you have a remote reservoir. Usually its near your washer fluid filler but not always. On the side of that are a full and fill lines simply check them for a level and add fluid as needed there.

Changed radiator in my 2004 kia sorento has just the presurized fill/overflow tank. cant get antifreeze into system completely cant find a bleeder port. Squeezed upper and lower hoses to remove some air....

You'll have to jack up the front of the car, or safer yet, park the car facing up a large hill, and run the car with the overflow cap off while shaking it back and forth. It will take 5-10 minutes but you will get a lot of air out, after this add coolant and drive around, you heater should work better. This may have to be done multiple times to completely purge the system of air.

Refilling antifreeze

After changing the coolant, the engine will need to be ran to open the thermostat to get trapped air out of the system. The heater will get hot after this is accomplished. May even take a couple of tries to get all of the air out but, be sure NOT to let the engine overheat.

Unable to locate radiator drain plug on KIA Sorento 2003 Thank you for your assistance

It is on the side of the bottom of the radiator, but I found it easier to just remove the lower radiator hose and let it just drain faster that way. Keep a large container nearby to catch the coolant.

My 2005 Kia Sorento is running hot I have no idea why.

did you check the coolant level? , is a good place to start, a low coolant will make the car running hot, also check if the radiator fans are runing when the car reach the normal temperature, usually in the middle of the gauge..other than , I recommend you to take it to your mechanic to be checked for leaks in case is loosing coolant
