Question about Kia Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have 2 problems with my 2000 KIA Carnival 2,9 diesel. The blower only blows hot air although I set the temperature- knob on coldest possition. ALLSO the air only blows on the front windshield despite knob possition. I do not hear the motor moving when I turn the knob when I´m trying to get the air to come out the low vents or the dashboard. The blower-motor works fine. This car does not have air condition.

Check your fuel filter. It may be clogged. If it is, you'll have no problem with starting and idling, since these require relatively little fuel flow, and even a clogged filter can usually flow enough for that. When you try and accelerate, the engine demands much more fuel, and a clogged filter may not be able to flow enough, which can shut the car down.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter location on a Petrol 2004 Kia Carnival

The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank, pump removal is required to replace. There is an inspection cover behind the front seats on the floor to gain access to the pump. stupid idea. but whats not stupid about kia.

SOURCE: Dual Temperature controls inside - 2002 lincoln ls

The problem is most likely a bad dual climate control valve. This component is located on the right side near the radiator under the hood. It will have several coolant hoses hooked to it and 2 silver cylinders protruding from it. You can clamp off the heater hoses at the heater core and see if both sides cool then and this will tell you that the valve is letting coolant thru when it shouldn't be.

This will narrow it down to either the valve or the control head inside the car,or wiring in between them. The only way to narrow it down further is if you have a scan tool that could access the climate control data. Have seen several of these valves cause this concern and have only seen one control head cause it.

SOURCE: air condition not blowing cold air

Is any air coming out at all?

If warm air is being blown out, then your refrigerant level is probably low. The car is fitted with a safety cut off, to stop the air conditioning system working if the refrigerant (R134a) level is low.

This cut off only effects the air conditioning, the blower would still function normally.

first thing is make sure the vehicle is in park, and emergency brake applied. next start your vehicle and let it get up to normal operating temperature. third turn hot/cold selector all the way to coldest. fourth turn the blower selector to MAX A/C double check its on MAX A/C and temp to coldest. the vehicle must be running for the a/c compressor to engage. when it does engage set on MAX it will cycle continuous which is needed to charge the system..
Okay so vehicles running, up to operating temp, A/c on max, cold knob to coldest.. your ready to charge the system! the kit you purchsed tells the

My heater on my 2000 cdillac escalade will not blow hot air

The heater core may be plugged. After the vehicle is warmed up to operating temperature, feel both hoses (careful they may be hot) and see if they feel equally warm. If one is noticeably warmer than the other, your heater core is likely plugged.

Hello! my 02 kia sedona has very poor heat comming out the vents. heat comes on only when I turn the knob to level 4 could this be the blower.

If the heat is poor the first thing to do is make sure all controls are set properly. The temperture control should be set to hottest setting (often colored red). Then if the air is slow comong out of the vents turn the fan (blower) to a higher speed. The fan switch usually has numbers like 1 thru 4. Then check heat output if it is okay your fine. The switch you mentioned is most likely the fan switch since it has numbers. The heat will increase at higher fan speeds since more air is being moved thru the system. Hope this helps.

No heat. Blower works fine. Noticed that the temperature control knob is not illuminated. All other knobs are illuminated. The outside/recirc air actuator is working properly.

If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox
