SOURCE: engine overheats and cooling fan cuts off

try to replace the hoses, they may be collapsing, then replace the thermostat, and give it a radiator flush to clear any possible clogs in the lines, last thing i would say is to replace the fan

Cooling fan not working/ 1999 Kia Sephia...I checked the fan...needs to be replaced but also no power from the plug the fan is connected to

The fan is powered by multiple control points. The first thing to check is fuse for cooling fans. If fuse is good then check the fan relay(s). After making sure those 2 items are good then check temperature sensor on the engine. Those are the main items that control cooling fans. Some vehicles are also controlled through the ECM.

Need to find thermostad location on kia sephia 96

I assume you mean the cooling system thermostat which is located at the end of the TOP radiator hose on the end which leads into the block. there is a housing which holds it and you need to remove it to get it out to replace it. Which again I assume is what you want to do?

I have a Kia Sephia. When I turn on the ventilation system / fan on the coolest setting it still runs warm. (The car does not have AC.) On a hot summer day it is unbearable. What is wrong with the system?...

unfortunately your only going to get whatever cool air is outside, the vent system on a Kia and most cars with no AC is just to circulate "new" air into the vehicle, so if its hot outside, thats the air your going to get inside .

Where is the thermostat and how do I replace it?

  • it is located on the engine (block - in the front).

  • Make sure the engine is completely cool prior to working on the engine. Then place the drain pan underneath the radiator. Open the petcock at the base and let out approximately 1 gallon of coolant.

  • 2

    Unbolt the thermostat housing from the front of the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Coolant will pour out at this point, so be ready for it and aim the hose toward the drain pan if possible. Remove the thermostat and the thermostat gasket.

  • 3

    Clean all of the mating surfaces on the engine and thermostat housing using the gasket scraper. Then install a replacement thermostat in the housing, with the thermostat orienting the same way as the original. Then install the gasket and the thermostat housing on top of it. Bolt it in place using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.

  • 4

    Open the radiator cap and fill the radiator with the 50-50 pre-diluted coolant. Turn on the car and let it run for 15 minutes while the interior heat is set on the "high" position. Allow the car to cool for an hour, then add any additional coolant needed

    Where is thermostat on 2000 kia sephia runs hotter as rpm's increase runs a little cooler as rpm's decrease no coolant leaks 1 of the 2 fans is running when hot

    Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. Where it connects to the engine is where you'll find the thermostat. It's under a housing...should be two or three bolts holding the housing down. Don't forget to replace the gasket.

    I have a Kia Sephia 01. I had my engine over heat and warp almost everything. i've tried replacing the thermostat housing three times but everytime i refill the coolant and it runs through the housing it...

    Likely you are overtightening the housing. If you have paper gasket type, try using a double gasket. If "o" ring type, just use the gasket. When tightening the housing take up small amounts on both sides, alternating from one to the other. Tighten till it is firmly mounted but stop there. After filling system, check for leakage. if seepage is noted, take up on bolts one quarter turn or less till drip stops.always alternating from side to side. Unless you have the wrong thermostat in there this pretty much has to work.
