If it's cooling properly while in motion, then it's most likely the fans aren't kicking in. Check fuses for the fans and also the temp switch that controls the fans.
Also, in a pinch situation, if out on the road and it starts overheating, roll down the windows, and turn the heater on full blast with the fan blowing...it''ll be uncomfortable, but your heater core can act as an emergency radiator...

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...

Please tell your Mom not to buy this car. These vehicles are poorly designed, and are prone to frequent failures. A Toyota RAV4 or a Honda CR-V would be a far better choice.

2001 Kia Sportage won't crank.


It sounds like the timing was set incorrectly when the head/head gasket was replaced. The engine won't turn over very well if the Valves are smashing the Piston Heads. I would suggest trying to turn over the engine yourself while it is in neutral. Just connect a socket to the harmonic balancer, and use a big cheater pipe. If you can feel something stopping the engine from turning, then the timing was set incorrectly.

06 kia sportage airbag control module


If your refering to the light on top of the dash that says "psgr air bag not connected" here;s the deal.

The module is activated when someone sits in the seat. Turn the key on and the notification will light. Go around to the psgr side of the car and sit in the seat and the light should go out.
