Heater doesnt seem to be hot enough


Go under the hood and feel the heater hoses after the engine gets up to temp, if they seem really hot then you may have a problem with the HVAC air temperature control blend door.

I have an 05 Kia sorento. It is showing signs of over heating, I checked fluids changed coolant and there are no leaks. Thermostat only goes to the middle.


Generally and engine heats up a little more when you shut off engine and it may be boiling out into over flow tanks as vapor (no leak) when it makes that sound. A overheated engine feels very hot when you open the hood, gauge works but maybe not accurately.

My 2005 Kia Sorento, temp gauge is midway between half and high. Just started, cooland and oil are fine. Heater works fine. Belts are good. What could be wrong. Check engine light came on this morning too


May have a cooling fan that has malfunctioned mounted on the radiator. Check under the hood for a fan or two mounted on the inside or outside the radiator. If you find one or two, start the car and let idle watching for fan(s) to kick on when thermostat gets hot.

My 2004 Diesel Kia Sorento takes 18 seconds to cold start. OK when hot. I have changed glow plugs and checked them. Injectors seem to get to pressure. Computer shows no errors. Battery is new and turn


is the air intake clear , new filter nothing squashing the intake pipe, how long does it take for the glow plug light to go out once you've turned ignition on ?

My 2005 kia sorento will not switch from hot to cold and vise versa. the mechanic is saying its probably the "airdoor actuactor motor / mixer actuator. any advice and where to buy this part(s) for a g


Sorry for your troubles ,
Temperature Hand in dash reading NORMAL ?
Does it Turn Blue to Red if so is do you feel friction or restraint like your turning something rather than freewheeling (smooth fast turning) or Digital and or does it show that it should be warm and not cold ?
Does the TEMP change at all(even the least little bit could narrow the results down) when knob is turned?
POSSIBLE - The Actuator/Motor that switches the VENTS very well could be BAD , Temperature Switch / Climate Control Switch (hot to cold could be broke at the base and only allowing the knob to turn and not in the switch ) Thermostat may be stuck open (keeping the engine running cool and smooth but no heat , maybe just a slight TEMP change when switched from Cold to Hot ). The A/C Switch is pushed in or turned on or broke and is stuck ON
FIXES - 1st- Check FUSES - If Temp HAND Reads Normal it not your THERMOSTAT. - Change the Control Switch / Temp switch - Check A/C Button/Knob . AUTOZONE is my place of business they PRICE MATCH AS WELL!

The temp sensor is sending the wrong information to the engine control module. It could just be a loose connection where it plugs into the wire harness or it might be a faulty temp sensor.

I have a 2004 Kia Sorento that is leaking antifreeze. The leak is a few drips when the engine is running but pretty much pours out when the engine is shut off. The temp gauge does not show that the engine...


could be one of the two radiator hoses. There are also two hoses in back that go to the heater core. All of these connections attach to plastic nozzles on the radiator and also the ones on the heater core are plastic and can crack. Also check radiator condensor for leaks.
