Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
That's your heater core. Nasty job generally because it requires working under the dash at odd angles. Never done a Kia...how good are you with basic tools? Try it! Have the part located. Change the hoses if they are worn or brittle. Generally, you'll need a screw driver, thin pliers, new clamps, small ratchet set with extension bar. After installation, turn heater on full and warm up the engine. Turn off, allow to cool and top up coolant...be sure you use 50/50 mix...not water.
