Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2002 Kia sportage and the 4 wheel drive does not seem to work I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem with theirs and if there was an obvious place I should look first. It seems to shift well at the transfer case so I'm thinking the issue is not their and I hear no grinding or any sounds coming from the front dif at all so I'm thinking its not their either( or at least hoping). Now to my understanding the entire system is run off a vacume, is their a way to test this? Thanks.

SOURCE: 01 kia sportage 4-wheel drive issues

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.

you have a piston issue it is located under the engine on or usually on the front axle it is called an 4 wheel drive cock actuator..the name I found to be funny at first but true....also since it is a 2002 and over 10 years old I would check the shaft from the transfer case to the axles it may have never been greased.it is possible to have seized and not allowed to engage you may have to remove the shaft and unseize it by forcing it using heat and force.the shaft must be flexable and well greased,on the lighter side check universal joints.

On the kia 2002 sportage i spent 15 Litres of fuel for 100KM is that normal?and can you tell me the normal Litres of gas foor 100KM on the kia 2002 sportage


That fuel consumption is a bit heavy, but not excessive, depending on the driving conditions. In heavy traffic and slow town driving with a lot of stop starts it would be acceptable but on the open road in 2 wheel mode it would be excessive. Kia do not seem to manage much better than about 8-10 l/100km, even on their sedans.

2002 Kia Sportage 4X4 Just purchased. First big snow it seems the 4 Hi and 4 Low are not working as the front axle spins but the front wheels don't when I am stuck. Also is this vehicle rear wheel drive...


Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.

There are 2 lines that are near the front wheels do they have something to do with the 4 wheel drive? are they vaccum lines?


They may be wires going to a wheel speed sensor. These would be for Antilock brake system. (ABS)
