Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
The original hubs are vacumn operated.There is an electric vacumn valve on the left side of the engine compartment. With the motor running you can pull the line to the hubs and shift the car into 4wd and feel if you have suction on the valve. If you do have vacumn there then I would check the rubber hoses that go from the body to the back of the spindles in the front wheel wells for leaks.

The hubs engage and dis engage by means of suction. the air pipe going to the hubs can be leaking or the vacume pump is damaged, Enjoy from Willem SA
