I have a 2001 sportage and the 4 wheel drive will not engage. ARE THERE vacuum hoses that need to be checked or replaced?


Yes. The front hubs are vacuum controlled. There are hoses going to them that might need replaced.

When i put the lever in four wheel high or low it does not engage the front wheels my kia is a 1999 sportage automatic 4 door


More than likely, the vacuum hoses going to the front wheels have split... if so, you will (very probably) find that the cheapest, quickest and happiest solution will be to fit manual hubs.

My 4 wheel drive is not working in 2001 Kia sportage. Is there a fuse, or is it electrical, or does it have a vacuum hose? If there is a vacuum hose, can you tell me where it would be located? Thank you


I think there are vacum hoses on both the left and right side of the front wheel wells you have to remove the wheels to check. Check to see if there are intact or damaged if they are replace the with the same size hose. Let me know if that helped.

2002 Kia Sportage 4X4 Just purchased. First big snow it seems the 4 Hi and 4 Low are not working as the front axle spins but the front wheels don't when I am stuck. Also is this vehicle rear wheel drive...


Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.

Four wheel drive wont engage


I got ripped off by a dealer with a similar problem that came back two weeks later. $2.99 of vacuum hose later I fixed it myself. Check all the vacuum lines for rotted hoses before you fork out 3K and they are easy to do
