Where is the horn?


Most are located at the front of the car around the left or right underbelly next to the radiator and some are between the front bumper and radiator. For the ones located front upper left or right at the belly of the car, you will have to remove the lower bumper moulding to find the horns.

My gears on my kia sportage 1997 ceases up after a short drive.


1 make shore you have the correct grade AUTO transmission oil.2 fit an external oil cooler. This can be done two ways. no1 add it into the system by cutting the oil return hose from radiator to the gear box and install the cooler or. no2 completely disconnect the radiator and install the external cooler independently.either way you will need oil cooler 2 lengths of transmission hose & 4 hose clamps. In Australia it comes as a kit with all clamps & hoses cost depends on size small medium or large cooler. when fitting I found it best to cut the pipes in the space between the radiator & the motor gives you more room to work just have to use longer bits of hose. Hope this helps. sick51

Where is the thermostat cant find a repair manual for 97 Sportage ..need to know where the thermostat is located


just follow the top radiator hose toward the engine. that metal housing that the radiator hose hooks up to has the thermistat under it take off the two bolts and change out thermistat.refill with coolant then run for about a half hour to warm up enough to open thermistat, then top off with coolant at the radiator cap.leave cap loose during this operation so that no pressure will build up in radiator.if unsure squeeze upper rad. hose it should easilly compress if stiff pressure has built up so dont open the cap. let cool then top up coolant

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

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.
