Water coming out of overflow


Try getting a coolant tester & making sure that you coolant/water mix is right. Also make sure that you're using the right type of coolant for your vehicle. After that I would check the 2 hoses to make sure neither is plugged. If you have too much water in your mix, it could get hotter and overflow.

Ac blows hot air in kia sportage


A/C BLOWS HOT. Radiator in Kia is rather small it overheats quickly. I should have checked the simplest thing first which was the radiator coolant level. I had a slow leak in radiator it was losing coolant but not very noticeably. I initially took it to have the a/c system checked all was good,they referred me to an electric repair shop but all the fuses and relays were good. I don't normally check coolant level as it is checked by dealer when oil is changed,this is a 2nd car and I don't drive it daily. Since coolant level was dropping slowly the engine would not overheat,however coolant got low enough to trigger emergency a/c compressor shut down switch to keep engine from overheating. That's why a/c would cool for 10 mins. in the morning but then shut off. Simple fix I filled the radiator and overflow tank. A/C started working perfectly again. After doing this a few times I realized the radiator had a leak which eventually had to be replaced $700.00 parts and labor. Its all good now.

2001 kia sportage is over heating but has no leaks. the radiator has been flushed but is very rusty inside. The water is rusty inside the radiator. We have checked the resevoir, it is fine. the water...


Rusty is from running a bad or no mix of coolant. (PH level is off) You may have a water pump that has corroded impellers, and can't move the coolant as well any more. I would start by making sure to flush the engine block again, and make sure you flush water through every possible hose, and where you can get at it.

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

My 2002 Kia sportage overheats when the air conditioner is on.


1. Check your coolant level- check at the radiator when cool, also.
2. Check to make sure that there is unblocked airflow to your radiator and a/c condensor (similar to the radiator)- blow compressed air or water from the back out the front of the fins... to make sure they aren't blocked.
3. Make sure the water pump is still circulating the coolant.
4. Also, may sound wierd but check your engine oil level too... it's part of the cooling process..
