Code p0038 wont go away and i have replaced the 02 sensors twice on my 2006 kia sportage


Code 038 means the computer is getting a high voltage return in the heater circuit from the O2 sensor mounted after the catalytic converter. The O2 sensors have an internal heater to make them work as soon as you start the engine.
You would need to test the circuit to and from the sensor to find the real problem.

2000 kia sportage light indicates its in 4wd when its in 2wd and tries to go in to 4wd and 2wd off and on


The actuator on the transfer case has a ground short. This is why the light is on. And it will try to shift back and forth, if you have the switch at 2wd.

How to change plugs on 02 kia sportage


  • 1

    Keep a regular schedule for inspecting the spark plugs on your 2002 Kia Sportage. According to the official 2002 Kia Sportage owner's manual, spark plugs and ignition wires should be inspected every two years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  • 2

    Let your 2002 Kia Sportage sit for a few hours before opening the engine compartment. You want to make sure that the engine is cool before you begin working on it.

  • 3

    Pop open the hood of your Sportage and locate the ignition wires, which will be attached to the top of your engine. The 2002 Kia Sportage has a four-cylinder engine, meaning there are four spark plugs each attached to an ignition wire. The ignition wires run from the engine to the fuse box, which is located in the left side of the engine compartment.

  • 4

    Inspect the ignition wires of your 2002 Kia Sportage. These wires will need to be replaced if they appear worn.

  • 5

    Disconnect the ignition wire to your spark plugs. Grab the rubber boot located near the base of the wire and pull upward instead of yanking on the wire. Remove only one wire at a time, or mark the wires with a colored Sharpie marker before disconnecting all of them. Improperly reconnecting the ignition wires can seriously affect the performance of your Kia Sportage.

  • 6

    Attach the spark plug socket to your socket wrench. Use the socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the top of the engine's cylinder.

  • 7

    Inspect the spark plug. There will be some soot, but if the spark plug is completely covered in soot, it needs to be replaced.

  • 8

    Position your replacement spark plug in place and secure it with the spark plug socket on your socket wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the spark plug after it has been snuggly fitted.

  • 9

    Position the rubber boot of the proper ignition wire in place above the spark plug and insert it with your hands. Close the hood of your 2002 Kia Sportage

    Kia sportage not going into 4 wheel drive when selected could this be diaphrams ?


    with 4wd engaged check that the front tailshaft to the diff does not turn more than 45* if this is ok and no 4wd light check bulb switch and wiring. if light ok you will need to track down vacuum leak to drive hubs fault { common fault } you can check 4wd operation by raising one front wheel with handbrake on and car in netural select 4wd with engine running if 4wd ok raised wheel will not turn more than 45* by hand and will spin free when 4wd disconnected

    00 KiA Sportage 4wd Locking Up on Turns


    It sounds like your CV joints, on the outsides of the front axles, are binding up. You might end up having to replace them. A small piece of advise, drive about a mile or so once a month in 4WD, that will help prevent this from happening again.
