SOURCE: Kia Sorento 2004 Radiator leak

I have no idea where Fixitman909 got his info, but it takes 2.2hours to do that job; not 1 hour as he stated.
And they dont make or sell rebuild radiators.

Get a new one at the parts store with a lifetime should cost you around $200-$250

I have a antifreeze leak on the back side of my 3.5 liter kia sorento motor,I took all the heater hoses loose and they look fine. What else could be leaking coolant the Y that connects the hoses is ok

Hi Kevin.

The general route of coolant will be the engine block, the heater core in/near the dashboard, the radiator, and, often, a coolant overflow reservoir that buffers you from leaks if your coolant gets extra hot or bubbly.

So, along with the heater hoses, there are the radiator hoses, either end. Hose connections to the block. Hose to wherever your coolant check/refill container is. The drain plug at the bottom of the radiator.

There is one other place that coolant can go, though you gotta hope this isn't it. If your head gasket is on it's last legs, coolant can start leaking into your cylinder head. This can show up overtly as white smoke, not so smooth running, or mysterious random moments where a hose suddenly bursts or pops loose. Or it can just be an occasional pinhole leak that's hard to detect.

One of the biggest tells - park the car on a flat smooth surface overnight after you've driven it a while. When you come out the next day, is there coolant on the ground anywhere. if yes, the location can help you track it. if no, then exit through the cylinder head may be the culprit. You'd want to run a compression check to make sure, and then contemplate whether fixing it is worth it on a twelve year old car.

Good Luck!

My ac on my 03 kia sorento blows cold but some times hot?any ideas..

Usually caused by an airlock in your cooling system. You need to 'burp' it. Remove the filler cap to the radiator, not the overflow reservoir, and squeeze the radiator hose as the car warms up. Fill the hose as the water goes down. Turn off the engine when it is at running temperature and replace the cap.

Should the rediator overflow hose be connected to the reservoir

Yes, it should. Heat expansion pushes coolant through the hose into the reservoir. When coolant cools, it will siphon back into the radiator until radiator is full.

Leaking water sometimes not overheating, is it the thermostat

If the water is coming from your overflow tank or radiator cap, replace them. The seals may have went bad. If the water is coming from a hose connection in the engine compartment, fix the connection. Depending on where/what is leaking it could be as simple as tightening a hose clamp and/or replacing a hose.

Do you have a diagram of the radiator cap, overflow hose, and tank seal

Unfortunately there is no specific diagram for this but your radiator cap is right on the top of the radiator closest to the front bumper, the overflow hose will also be connected to the cap or very close to it. You should see it go from there to the radiator fluid reservoir. The tank seal is located inside your radiator cap, this is what makes it from coming out of the cap. The other seals are welded into the actual radiator. Hope this gave you a good idea of what you were looking for!

Have a good one!

Leaking from the very top of my radiator down and dripping to ground, but vehicle not overheating on gauge yet. does the whole radiator need replacing or is this a gasket problem?

make sure its not the radiator cap or the overflow hose. if radiator is cracked or leaking at the tank seal then radiator must be replaced.

I have a 2004 Kia Sorento that is leaking antifreeze. The leak is a few drips when the engine is running but pretty much pours out when the engine is shut off. The temp gauge does not show that the engine...

could be one of the two radiator hoses. There are also two hoses in back that go to the heater core. All of these connections attach to plastic nozzles on the radiator and also the ones on the heater core are plastic and can crack. Also check radiator condensor for leaks.
