Question about 2000 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

I recently purchased a 2000 Kia Sportage to use around town. It runs great. It was well maintained by the one previous owner and I have most repair records. The only real problem is that the heater core has gone bad. The previous owner had another vehicle to use and simply let it sit when the weather got cold. I know that the core is under the dash to the right of the steering column. I am not a person who is able to make this repair myself. My question is this: how much should this repair cost? Is it acceptable to use a used part in the repair? I know that labor rates vary by location; but I want to get a basic idea of approximately how much this repair should cost.

Only use New Parts or you will wind up with the Same Problem. This is a Basic Stright Forward Repair and I would guess no more than 250.00 Total for the Repair.

IAM LOOKING FOR A KIA SPORTAGE MANUALS I CAN


The only manuals that I know are available you have to purchase through Kia and they are rather expensive. I believe around $100 or so. I did purchase a Mitchell computer program and CDROM off of ebay a few years ago. It helps some, but is not as good as a Chilton or Haynes manual. I think I gave around $30 for it.

2000 kia sportage trouble code po171 once in awhile,runs lean when cold,ok warm. i have 2 of these cars, changed over , map, tps ,idle sensors. also changed fuel injectors, filters ,fuel pump,fuel pressure...


I have 2005 Kia Sportage with a check engine light. No other symptoms. I was told by Kia and Local mechanic that it is the fuel injectors. Error Code states that Fuel injectors are running lean. Put Master airflow- no change. Ran engine test with propane to run rich and trim never changed from 15. Car runs great. Kia dealer said that this is because we use Ethel in gas that it effects the alumium fuel rail delivery to the injectors and that it is necessary to change all of them .Kia Dealer wants $1,000.00 deposit to place order 6 fuel injectors from Kia. (Has anyone heard of that?)Also put fuel injector cleaner in tank.Does anyone have any suggestions before I spend over $1,000.00 to replace all 6 injectors or possible idea of what could be wrong?

i have a 2000 sportage and every time mine doesn't start it acts like it may be the spark plugs or something to do with the fuel pump but it is always the starter. I have had it for 7 years and have had to replace the starter 4 times.

I just purchaced a 2000 Sportage and am having the same problem. I did find that Autozone.com has a free online manual that you can view and print sections from. I would rather have a book at my side when I repair my car, but until somebody comes up with one we are stuck with the online services.
