SOURCE: Over heating 1997 Kia Sportage

Does the radiator fan operate properly? The radiator fluid level (checked when the engine is cold) must be 'at the cap' with the reserve tank about half-full. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clean it of bugs and other debris. Does the anti-freeze look green or rust brown? If rust colored, the entire cooling system needs to be drained, cleaned with system cleaner, and refilled again with a 50/50 fresh mixture of anti-freeze and water. If combustion gases are leaking into the cooling system through a bad gasket or warped cylinder head, that will cause overheating. Check the radiator cap for condition of it's seal. Occasionally, the water pump impeller will begin slipping on it's drive shaft causing limited water flow through the system. That is checked by reducing the level of fluid in the radiator to just above the core and temporarily removing the thermostat. You will observe water moving rapidly if the pump is working.

SOURCE: timing belt diagram 1997 kia sportage 4x4

My scanner isnt working, so i hope this can help you out some...On the left Camshaft..you will a stamp I and E...iI is for intake and E is for exhaust..The I should be up at 12 o'clock and the E should be at 4..you will also have marks on the timing plate behind the camshafts to help you line it up right...Now on the Right Camshaft you will have the same marks, but this time you want the E at 12 and the I at 7 o'clock..And the crankshaft should have a little notch on it, where you can line that up at 12 o'clock with the notch imprint that is on the plate for you..You may have to clean those areas, and use a light, so you can see them..I hope this helps you out..Goodluck...

Why my Kia Sportage 2002 will tend to heat up when running and the coolant is thrown outside radiotor


remove the thermostat and see if it still does the same. if it does, then you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. if the temperature stays low without a thermostat and it does not throw coolant out then replace the thermostat with a new one.

Changed water pump thermostat coolant car still runs hot


It could be a leaking head gasket, or blockage in the cooling system such as sludge in the radiator, or a faulty cooling fan.
How long can you drive it before it gets to 220 degrees, and is the fan coming on ?

Oil leaking bad 1997 kia sportage seems to be leaking in the back of engine


Your problem will be on the oil seal, mechanical seal and gasket. This oil seal are located near the pulley of the engine or in the transmission . This seal need to replace when your car getting old. In gasket the best way is to replace the this with new the oil pan and the valve cover or did you check your oil filter maybe the it needed to tighten or need to replace. This is a heavy work it need service personnel to do this job because they going to open the engine. Your can still use your car as long as you monitor the oil level.

KIA IS STILL OVERHEATING,


The thermostat is the engine temp controller. All the sensors do is relay information.

Are you sure your over heating. Has anyone infrared temp tested the actual temperature.

If you are really overheating a temp gun can test differnnt areas to try to find a blockage somewhere.

You could have a clogged radiator if you used a sealer in the coolant pryor to doing the head gasket.

Car is overheating changed thermostat didn't help


Without more information, it is possible you have a air bubble in the coolant or a blown head gasket. Check the exhaust for smells of coolant (sweet) and the oil for signs of coolant as well, it will look like a milkshake. If you notice an excessive amount of visible bubbles in the overflow tank then more than likely you have a head gasket problem and the cooling system is being pressurized from the leak. To bleed the coolant system, remove the radiator cap and start the car and you should observe small bubbles rising to the top, again if there is an excessive amount then you have a head gasket problem.
