WHEN I DRIVE MY KIA SPORTAGE IT MAKES A RUBING SOUND LIKE REAR BRAKE ?


Are you sure it's the brakes? If brakes are rubbing they'll get hot and the wheel lug bolts will too.
Put on old clothes, drive the car down the freeway on a Saturday or Sunday morning, when there's no traffic, being careful to not touch the brake pedal (except as needed). When you've heard the rubbing noise for fifteen minutes or so, pull way over somewhere safe & park. Turn the engine off & apply the parking brake. Go to each wheel and touch the lug nuts and/or the brake drums or discs the wheels are attached to. If a brake's dragging the disc or drum will be scalding hot. If the brakes are not hot, the rubbing sound isn't brakes.

When 4WD is engaged, get a loud "rubbing" sound


Sounds like it could be a front hub slipping or the front to back friction differential.
Jack up all 4 wheel on good solid jack stands or something safe, and listen for the source of the noise with a hose.
A slipping hub will be from one of the fronts, while the differential would be in the transfer box.
Check fluid levels while you are at it.

Kia sportage not going into 4 wheel drive when selected could this be diaphrams ?


with 4wd engaged check that the front tailshaft to the diff does not turn more than 45* if this is ok and no 4wd light check bulb switch and wiring. if light ok you will need to track down vacuum leak to drive hubs fault { common fault } you can check 4wd operation by raising one front wheel with handbrake on and car in netural select 4wd with engine running if 4wd ok raised wheel will not turn more than 45* by hand and will spin free when 4wd disconnected

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

00 KiA Sportage 4wd Locking Up on Turns


It sounds like your CV joints, on the outsides of the front axles, are binding up. You might end up having to replace them. A small piece of advise, drive about a mile or so once a month in 4WD, that will help prevent this from happening again.

94 4Runner 4WD Question


1. I would suggest that you engage your 4WD while you are in full stop and/or safe range of 5mph, however as claimed by the local dealers your vehicle is capable of engaging even while driving. Engage your 4WD while moving only when necessity requires.
2. That clicking noise while turning extreme right or left would be the birfield of your axle and would only mean your front hub is still engage even though you have disengaged transfer case.
Have your front hubs cleaned of old lubricants or grease due to non usage. dont use grease as lubricants, use thick oil such as gear oil or silicone oil. and use your 4WD every now and then.

Do this first then check if you still feel somtehing is loose on your suspension and others.

How to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage


hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps
