I have a 1999 Kia Sportage. Was driving and water and antifreeze flooded the passenger floorboard. The car ran fine other than this. Prior to this happening the temperature gauge on the car kept going up and down.

Heater core is bad. You probably have had to add coolant every so often. Be careful, as I have seen the PCM located below and to the left of the core get wet and then you find yourself with more problems. For now, just bypass the heater core under the hood.

The heater core is under dash on passenger side...leaking coolant from engine to inside car...loss of coolant in engine made temp rise and fall....can be a nightmare to swap out...some can be fairly simple....hope you get lucky...Lee

Sounds like the heater core has a leak. When you get low on coolant, the temp gauge will start to fluctuate.

1999 Kia Sportage 4Wd leaking antifreeze, timing belt loose, not turning cam shaft, but not broken. What is causing problem?


If you have antifreeze in ya timing belt cover it can only be one thing. Your water pump seal is going bad. You will not see it if it is not under pressure but it will leak. It's not a bad job to do if you know what ya doing but if you dont it can be a night mare. When you change your water pump change the timing baelt along with it because the antifreeze will rot the belt and it will break. Leaving you beside the road wait for a tow truck.

check the alternator, have a service shop like an auto parts store run a check, they can do it for free in some places. may also be your battery, can get cleaner and metal wire battery contact cleaner and you can also try putting some water into the battery in the area indicating where to put some water.

Hiy, I have just purchased a 1999 Kia sportage off a private seller and the air conditioning on the passengers side is extremely noisy. Do i need to get this looked at or is it just because its an old car?


Check the seal on the windshield. If it is not properly sealed it will allow water to get into your blower motor which will make it very noisy. Look everything over and see if you can see where water might be getting in. Seal it up with an automotive grade silicone. Remove the blower motor and oil it up really good. If that does not work get on ebay and order a replacement.
