Unhook the battery for about ten minutes ... that should reset the light... if it comes back on have the codes scanned (autozone is free).

Where is thermostat on 2000 kia sephia runs hotter as rpm's increase runs a little cooler as rpm's decrease no coolant leaks 1 of the 2 fans is running when hot


Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. Where it connects to the engine is where you'll find the thermostat. It's under a housing...should be two or three bolts holding the housing down. Don't forget to replace the gasket.

There is a square box shape attached to the back wall of the engine that has 4 small i think metal hoses coming out of it that i believe go to the brakes. What is the name of that box please


It is a combination valve, sometimes called a splitter valve or a isolater valve. It is a safety device that senses a sudden drop in brake fluid pressure and closes off the fluid flow to 2 lines when necessary. It will aslo cause the BRAKE light to light up.

If it is trans fluid the cooler inside your radiator must have a leek. Yes it is possible for it to get itno the trans. Check to see if the fluid is milky.

Tranny radiator leak


If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.
