Question about 2000 Kia Sephia
Hi have you checked to see if the cooler fan is running when it gets to normal running temperature? if not running, first check fuses, then check wires connected to the fan switch ( located on bottom or on side of radiator ) spin fan to make sure it has not seized it should move freely, to check if it is thermostat, after running engine for a few minuets feel the top and bottom hoses to the radiator, if one is cold and the other is hot ( normally bottom is hot, top is cooler ) then the thermostat will need replacing, and finally ( last check ) remove the oil filler cap and see if there is a creamy residue on it, also check engine oil as well to see if it is similar in colour to the cap if it is your head gasket has blown and will need sorting ( very rare )....hope this helps please vote thanks
