Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

I took my 2002 kia on a 1000 mile trip. The engine got hot so I turned off the air conditioning and it cooled to normal operating temperatures. I drove it with no problems except not being able to run the air conditioner for approximately 300 miles. Then the engine would overheat if I was not running 60 mph. The problem became steadily worse so that by the time I was returning home the car had no power and the engine would run hot going up hills.

What is the running temperature for a kia sportage 2 litre deisil automatic


In the most general of terms a diesel engine would operate at 86-92 C.

However, much depends on the distance you are driving. On a very short trip(s) your needle is unlikely to get much above cold on the gauge. That's because an engine needs a minimum of 5 miles before the thermostat begins to open to allow coolant to circulate, and 10 miles before your engine is getting to 'normal operating temperature'.

The ideal position of the needle is N - normal ... midway between cold and hot.

If, on a long run, the needle doesn't get much past the cold mark it's probably due to either a faulty coolant sensor temperature sending a wrong reading to the gauge, or a thermostat which is stuck in the open position.

If the needle is indicating too hot - again it could be a faulty temperature sensor, a faulty thermostat - or other problems.

With a fully warmed engine and sitting in traffic/idling your needle would creep from Normal to Hot .. and then the electric fan would kick in.

What does obd code p0301 on 2002 pt cruiser mean?


Trouble Code: P0301

Cylinder No. 1, 2, 3 or 4 Misfire Detected

Trouble Code Conditions: Engine is running; atmospheric pressure, fuel level, battery voltage, engine speed, engine load are above minimal predetermined specifications; the engine is not in fuel cutoff and intake air temperature and coolant temperature are within normal operating ranges; there are no DTCs relating to ECT, CMP, CKP, MAP or IAT Sensor, to Crank rationality, to Crank Sensor Learn invalid, or to System Voltage. If total misfires detected are greater than 7% during the first 1000 rpm, or are over 3% after the first 1000 rpm, or are 25% during any 200 rpm with suspect cylinder misfire counter more than 80% and no other cylinder misfire counters above 80%, this DTC will set. The MIL will flash after first trip occurrence and will be steady after second trip.

Possible Causes:

Hello... I got problem with my honda odyssey. For the past 3 days, if i start the engine, after 5 min the temperature will goes up to HOT and engine indicator light-up. I turn-off the engine and then start...


Your English is very good.

From what you have described, which is a rapid over heating of the radiator coolant fluid and therefore a hot engine condition, it would appear that the thermostat in the engine's cooling system is faulty.

If the thermostat is sticking in the closed or nearly closed position temporarily, there will be no flow or very little coolant flow between the engine and the radiator and the engine will overheat.

You have advised that after the engine is shut off , and radiator coolant fluid has cooled, you re-start the engine and drive the car without the overheating condition occurring again and the radiator coolant temperature is normal. This time there is no overheating because the thermostat is working normally.

You should have the thermostat replaced as soon as possible because allowing the engine to overheat can cause very expensive engine damage.

If you had a continuing overheating condition then I would suspect both the thermostat and the water pump. However as the overheating seems to be only temporary, and clears itself after you have shut down the engine and re-started it 10 minutes later (without further overheating arising) then I think you only have a faulty thermostat.

Please also check that the electric fans which draw air through the radiator are operating. These run on a temperature sensor and will switch on automatically once the radiator coolant fluid reaches a certain temperature and then switch off again when the fluid temperature reduces. You will hear them running once they start up. If these fans are not working the radiator coolant can quickly overheat in various driving and temperature conditions because there will be insufficient air flow through the radiator to cool the fluid. If the temperature sensor is faulty or has died, or if the electric motors running the fans are faulty, the fans will not operate.

I hope this helps.

The antifreeze burps out of the overflow after driving a few miles then it is turned off. It is not overfilled...?


Is the engine temperature normal when driving or is it on the high side? After a short run turn engine off and check coolant hoses, be careful they may be hot to touch, squeeze the top hose, if it is very hard, you may find the coolant pressure is too high causing the coolant to leak from overflow, this could be caused by faulty thermostat, head gasket or poor coolant circulation, also check cooling fan is operating when hot

I have a 2003 KIA Sedona and it is overheating after about 5 minutes of driving. Coolant reserve levels are normal and I checked the radiator and it appears to be full. Any idea as to what the problem...


If you are not losing coolant the first things to check are if the fan(s) are engaging and if the thermostat is opening. Start the engine cold and monitor the temperature as it warms up. As it starts to get hot, Gently and carefully grab the upper radiator hose. If it is cool to the touch but the engine is hotter than normal the thermostat is stuck closed and needs to be replaced. At the same time listen and watch for the cooling fan to engage. You should have 2 electric cooling fans. One works off of coolant temperature and the other off of accessory load. Turn on the a/c during this test with the temperature setting on hot. This way you can see if the fan is working while you check the thermostat operation and the fan will engage and help cool the engine if it is operating properly. Feel the hose for breaks in the coolant flow, if the thermostat opens, to detect if air pockets are present in the system. if you have never opened up the cooling system for repair, there should not be any air in the coolant.

Hard start when engine hot


Clean the temperature sensor wire connector.
Replace the temp sensor.
Check the condition of the sensor wire cut(s) or short onto the engine block.
Monitor the fan operation with the hood open during warm up (0-15 minutes.) It should ran after the engine coolant temp get above 195F +.

Check,clean or change the air filter and breather element.

2002 corolla randomly overheats and feels like it misfires turn the heat on and engine cools down. already replaced thermostat any ideas. no leaks 98k miles


Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on intake side of waterpump at engine above idle rpm.
Check condition of system pressure cap.
Check operation of cooling fan/s- fan temperature sensor switch on engine may be faulty.
Check system has correct fill of coolant and no air locks exist when re-filling- bleed off any airlocks as may be necessary.
Check radiator coolant core not blocked.

2002 kia sportage temp gauge runs hot while driving


Cheak to see that the coolant fan is operating with the A/C turned on. The fan has to work to help the engine stay cool and help the A/C. When you apply heat on the control it acts to reduce the coolant temp. You will have to get the coolant fan operation checked. This can be :fan motor, fan relay, temp sensor and computer. Good luck
