Question about 1999 Kia Sportage
Sounds like a vacuum hub locking issue where do I start looking?
First check the rubber hose leading to the hubs for cracks.There is also a vacuum switch that might have gone bad, just follow rubber hose back up to switch. You may also want to take the hubs off and clean them it doesn't take much gunk to foul them up. Hub bolts are 10mm, pretty easy removal .autopartspeople.com has the switch cheaper than the regular dealers. If nothing else works you can buy manual lockouts for this

a quick fix to solve the problem with the 4wd not working on the sportage is fitst check the vacume soionoid is working lockated by the suspention turet on theL/H side of the engine bay, then, chech hoses going to the hub, if there is still a vacume leek from the hub remove the 6 bolts from the outer hub locker place in vice remove the circlip, remove the spring, remove the spline gear then take the spring and swap it around so that it gose under the gear so that it is in conatant mesh/ lock, build back up and fit, it means the front axle will be live all the time but you will still be able to select 2 /4wd,,
