Question about Kia Sorento LX

1 Answer

I have a leak somewhere obviously..but the coolant level never goes low and the temperature never changes in the car, we were thinking that the thermostat might be getting stuck. we see coolant under the car sometimes and the like a line of water as i am backing out. like I said the coolant level is good in the tank.

Are you sure its coolant on the ground, it could be condensation from your air conditioner.

If your not have a drop in your radiator level, and not having cooling problems.
Then I doubt it is coolant on the ground.

Just for grins, check the level in the radiator instead of the overflow tank.

It's a good thing you keep an eye on the little things like this, because they can be indicators of a problem that needs attention

Obviously it's temperature gauge light. Check for coolant level first. Then check for coolant leak. If coolant is leaking out of your car, the lower coolant levels in your engine will cause it to overheat. If you have your heater on and it starts blowing hot air instead of cool, your engine is low on coolant. This will cause to flash a warning light on your car's dashboard.

Look on the back of the engine for antifreeze-either by number 1-2 cylinder or back by the brake booster. It is a know problem with Saturn engines, leaking by the rear intake. Check under the surge tank, they crack and leak too-check the bottom of the water pump for leaks, it has a weep hole that, if the seal inside is broken, will leak. you need to look for symptoms and evidence of leaks-if there is no obvious leaks from hoses, or outside the engine anywhere, it may be a head gasket-check your oil for a milky texture, or greyish color. check the bottom of the surge tank for oily residue, and look for smoke coming from the tailpipe.

one of two things could be happening... either the radiator is low on coolant or your thermostat is stuck (which if it is stuck you will have to replace) . But first let engine cool down, you need to check coolant level, squeeze one of the radiator hoses even if engine is cooled down to make sure there is little or no pressure in cooling system then remove radiator cap/coolant bottle cap to check level.by the way if it is low you will need to figure out why.. the obvious reason is a leak you may have to go to a shop and have system pressure tested to locate leak to repair.. good luck to ya.. hope this helps

I have a 1999 dodge durango that will start first thing in the morning when its cold but once it warms up and you turn the ignition off it will not start again till it cools down.


Have you checked your coolant level? Does the temperature gauge run in the red zone? IF the coolant is low refill with 50/50 mixture when engine is cool. Check for leaks on radiator and hoses running to and from the radiator . If the fluid is fine, watch the temperature guage. If it goes in to the red the thermostat/sensor may be bad and thinks it is over heating and will not let you start the car until it thinks its cool enough to do so. It will also do this when coolant is low.

Car is running hot I think it's my water pump .


The most likely causes of a hot running engine are the following:

1. low antifreeze level in the radiator and cooling system.
2. fan not turning on at operating temperature.
3. restrictions in the cooling system such as sediment build up.

Water pumps usually leak when they are bad, and can cause an overheat because of low coolant level.
Check whether the water pump is leaking after topping off the coolant level and running at operating temperature, and then shutting off the car's engine.

The heater is only blowing cold air.


The first thing to check is the level of your antifreeze (engine coolant) If it is low, the heater will not have any flow of the hot coolant to heat the inside of your car. If the coolant level is low, you need to find out why it is low. The coolantis in a sealed system and you should never have to add any to it. The only way it is going to be low is if there is a leak somewhere in the cooling system.

If the coolant is not low, the problem could be a bad thermostat. The thermostat controls the flow of coolant through the radiator and thus keeps the engine at operating temperature.

If the engine is at operating temperature and the coolant level is ok, then you probably have a problem with the blend-air doors or the controls for them that adjust the temperature of the air coming out of your heater and vents.

Low coolant level light comes and goes off, but never over heats.temperature gauges has gone up halfway, but never in red area.what could be the problem


you never want the temperature guage at the red, at this time usually something major becomes damaged. Check your coolant level, if low inspect hoses, radiator, waterpump for leaks.

2003 impala temp. gage goes high & low and no heat comes out of heater. it continues to cycle like this as I drive. When temp. gage goes up the heater quites.


Have u checked the coolant level? this type of problem useualy indicates the coolant is low, if it is low you need to have the engine cooling system tested for a leak, the coolant goes out somewhere.
