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.

How to drop the drive shaft 2006 kia sportage not LX v6 4wd and 2wd push button for 4wd have tow dolly want to put front wheels on dolly any problems with doing that thank you


This is what I would do; Drive it on to dolly. Secure the front tires to the dolly have it ready to tow. Go under the Sportage remove the 4 nuts and bolts attaching the drive shaft to the rear differential. Disconnect the drive shaft and ziptie it to the chassis above rear differential. Leaving the front of the drive shaft in the transmission will prevent it leaking trans fluid. Ready to go!

2000 kia sportage light indicates its in 4wd when its in 2wd and tries to go in to 4wd and 2wd off and on


The actuator on the transfer case has a ground short. This is why the light is on. And it will try to shift back and forth, if you have the switch at 2wd.

My 2002 Kia sportage 4wd keeps jumping into 4wd while driving and it make an awful noise


I had the same problem on my 99 sportive. It turns out that there is a vacuum leak in the hubs. I solved it by changing the auto hubs to manual hubs and have had not problem since. When I lock the hubs in 4wd I hear a winning from the wheals but not that nasty noise. I hope that his helps with your problem. Chris Tina

Kia sportage 4wd won't engage, unrelated to vaccum hubs


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,,

What is the hold light mean?


Assuming a first generation Sportage, sounds like a problem with the vehicle speed sensor on the back of the transfer case (4wd) or transmission extension housing (2wd).

Could be as simple as a corroded/broken wire, through to a malfunction in the sensor. Take it to Autozone and get the codes read and let us know what they are (to be absoluteluy sure...).
