I fought the weak front hub vacuum system for years, finally put on WARN manual hubs myself, very easy and under $120. I spent twice that having various components fixed

I had the opposite problem. My front hubs would not engage at all. My mechanic said it is common for the hoses or the actuators to break/crack with age through wear and tear. In my case, instead of replacing the vacuum hoses, I just switched over to manual hubs. Less convenient, but no problems since.

SOURCE: 95 kia sportage transfer case engages, but hubs do

Hubs may be broken, because they are not vacuum actuated. 1995's were actuated automatically upon engaging 4wd. To disengage them, stop car, put into 2wd, back up about 20 feet. 1st generation Sportages should not be driven on dry pavement in 4wd. That is usually how the hubs get broken. If hubs are broken, I suggest removing them and installing Warn manual hubs which are much stronger.

SOURCE: how do i replace the front hubs in my Kia Sportage

The locking hub just unbolts from the hub and pops off the end of the drive shaft, where it is held in by a "auto" round cir-clip. A good suggestion is to read this article first.

01 kia sportage 4-wheel drive issues


I have the same problems but found the problem. Put a vacuum pump on the hub and see if there is any. I have one that has 30 inches of vacuum and one with zero. The only solution I found was to buy a used one from a salvage yard. The hand vacuum pump is only $40 but you will save over a $1000 doing this.
