Question about 1999 Kia Sportage
Does not appear to be water pump or coolant hose leak. Coolant in timing belt compartment.
The belt is loose but not turning you say
You turned the motor over by hand?
Is the crank pulley without a key to drive it?
I assume you have all covers off & your not
guessing here-- your actually doing something-
so you can tell us
I don't go with doesn't appear,it either is or it isn't

If you have antifreeze in ya timing belt cover it can only be one thing. Your water pump seal is going bad. You will not see it if it is not under pressure but it will leak. It's not a bad job to do if you know what ya doing but if you dont it can be a night mare. When you change your water pump change the timing baelt along with it because the antifreeze will rot the belt and it will break. Leaving you beside the road wait for a tow truck.

I have a 97 Sephia with what sounds like the same configuration. The tube is for the heater and there is an "O" ring on the metal tube that goes bad over time. You can replace the gasket by removing the metal tube from the engine, or the water neck and replace the o ring.

NO NEED TO REPLACE CAMS OF SHAFTS, AS LONG AS VEHICLE WAS WELL MAINTAINED, MIGHT HAVE TO REPLACE BELT TENSIONER.
