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)

I don't know how to get my 2001 kia sportage into four wheel drive


On small shift behinde gear lever there is 3 settings. H4 = 4 wheel drive high range, L4 = 4 wheel drive low range, h2 = 2 wheel drive high range. as soon as jou engage to 4 wheel drive a green light on the dash board will appear to indicate that the car is in 4 wheel drive. if not check fuse - check air pipes at front wheels.

The 4 wheel drive will not engage on my 2001 Kia Sportage.


You will need to do an obd 2 scan. You can do this at advance auto or autozone. Its a sensor problem. Once you find out the code of what sensor is bad, you replace it
