    OK.. I just tried that.. It seemed to working properly. I so wished that would be it. Do you have any other ideas?

    Well,I was hoping that it would be a simple fix but its not looking that way. I'm dropping her off at the shop for diagnostics. Hopefully this is not going to cost me an arm and a leg. I'll post what the outcome is. Maybe this well help someone else having the same kind of issues.

    Well, its going to cost $1286.00!!!! Unfortunately its the head gasket.(My poor baby)

    Now I have a dilemma.

    Someone wants to trade me a (97-98 not sure of the year) Isuzu Trooper for the Sportage

    He said that the trooper has a highway package and that a hose that cools the oil needs repair. Does anyone know what he is talking about? And would this be a costly fix?

The radiator thermostat may be stuck. I've had that before. Just about any auto part store should have an employee that can help if you need it. Its a quick and easy fix/replacement. You'll definitely want to check your radiator coolant level as well.

Hi.I have a kia sportage 2015. This morning the engine wouldn't start and the immobilizer light would stay on for a few seconds before disappearing without blinking.Any idea what the problem could be?


is the key or fob battery good

if it is cranking over but not starting could be anything
fuel or electronic spark related

if the engine light on ..there will be fault codes
a 2105 kia sportage will need a diagnostic scanner to narrow down the no start problem

I need the trouble codes for 1995 kia sportage 4wd 2.0 i just need to see what they are, ive been all over the web and keep getting nowhere thanks for your time


Trouble code definitions do not necessarily have to be under the "Kia" heading; imports share trouble code definitions and are identical in most cases. Very rarely is a trouble code brand-specific. Check under Hyundai and Mitsubushi and you will see that Japanese and Korean car companies have similiar trouble code definitions.

Note: You have 1995 model year; this could be more challenging since most OBD-II systems started from 1996 and on.

My 2000 KIA Sportage just started a shuttering problem when going up hills n idle real bad n L or 2


If you have no low,or second gear,then this is the shutter.Try a filter change on the transmission,and see what happens.If lower gears are not there,it is most likely a hydraulic problem in the trans.

My 98 kia sportage keeps overheating do you have any advice


That could be as broad as a system low on coolant to a bad head gasket. More information would be helpful.
