I have a 2001 kia sportage 4x4 and had to recently change the transmission. It is curently at the mechanic and the transmissions he has got(2 at this point) he said won't shift and will only do 20mph.


Is a 2001 really worth the cost of a new transmission? It could be the computer not recognizing the new transmission. Is your mechanic familar with Kia/Hyundai?

Why won't my headlights won't go on for my 2001 Kia sportage


Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
Is everything else on the vehicle working okay?
If so, the first thing to investigate would be the fuse for the headlamps. A simple volt/ohm meter would be very useful at this point, but often a visual inspection can detect a blown fuse without one.

What oil does a kia sportage 2.0l use


  • Hi, i can help.

  • Looks like your vehicle gets the absolute performance out of a 0W30 Full Synthetic Oil. It also says it gets good performance out or 5W30 Full Synthetic oil. So as long as it is a high quality Full Synthetic of 0W30 or 5W30 you will be fine.

  • As for oil types,, Mobile1, Castrol, AMSOIL all make outstanding Full Synthetic Oils.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony
