SOURCE: air conditioner started blowing hot air

your a/c compressor is not working.
you have to have the system checked by an air conditioning place or the dealer as to what the cause is.

SOURCE: Jeep cherokee ran hot and now the fan has stopped.

You have cooked the engine, you can try replacing the radiator and the sending unit for the fan but you most likely destroyed both. unhook the fan and try it. if it does not bubble after 3 minutes then you may be ok but if if shoots water out of the cap then your thermostat is bad or you have a blown head gasket.

SOURCE: I just purchased a used kia and it started smoking

if this is a diesel kia then smoking is not a very bad sign. diesels tend to smoke when the diesel injectors are clogged up. this can happen with very poor dirty diesel fuel. take the kia in to a good mechanic. not the agents or kia cause they are going to rip you off. or there is a solvent you can buy at a carparts&accessories that can unclog. just ask for assistance. a diesel starts smoking when the diesel injectors are clogging up. good luck.

My 2005 Kia Sorento is running hot I have no idea why.


did you check the coolant level? , is a good place to start, a low coolant will make the car running hot, also check if the radiator fans are runing when the car reach the normal temperature, usually in the middle of the gauge..other than , I recommend you to take it to your mechanic to be checked for leaks in case is loosing coolant

replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.
