Okay the squeal is a belt under the hood one of them may be to tight or worn out. also you can try spraying belt cleaner and lubricant. you can pick it up at any autoparts store. DO NOT USE WD40!!!!!!!
and if your car is overheating with a new radiator then you may just need to replace your thermastat.

Were is fuel filter on a kia sephia 2000 model

They are located in the middle of the engine, on the front of the engine. Go in the middle of the hood and bend down. Look under the grill and you should see it. If you need anything, let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Turn key and nothing happens

I am assuming you checked your battery already. Go under your hood to the fuse panel, Pull out the IOD fuse for about 10 minutes and replace. Try starting your car after that. If that doesnt help you may need to check your distributor or power coil, If thats good check the crankshaft sensor.

2000 kia sephia will start, but won't shift out of park.

Mkae sure you are pushing on the brake pedal. Also there is a switch that releases the shifter. It is under the console.

No air kia sephia

I had the same problem, started about 150K miles. It had nothing to do with the fan motor or the switch. my problem was under the fuse box. it was shorting out and i couldn't figure out how to get the wire out or wedge it in to where it would hold, so i got an external inline fuse and bypassed fuse box. when doing that it bypassed the relay as well. by hey, the fan blower works now.
