For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is
recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is
recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid.
It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months
and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.
Torque is a measurement tool that shows a vehicle's ability
to tow and accelerate. The 2000 Sportage generates 135 ft-lb of torque
when measured at 4,000 rpm. It tows up to 2,000 lb.
The 2000 Sportage features a 2.0-liter I4 engine that
produces 130 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. Five-speed manual overdrive
transmissions are standard for all models, but the four-door models
offer the option of getting a four-speed automatic overdrive
transmission instead. The compression ratio is 9.1 to one and the engine
displacement is 1,991 cc. The bore and stroke are 3.26 and 3.62 inches.
All manual versions get 20 miles per gallon in the city and
23 mpg on the highway. The automatic four-wheel drive models get 19 mpg
in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. The automatic two-wheel drive
models get 18 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. The two-door
model has a 14-gallon fuel tank and the other models have a 15.8-gallon
The two-door Sportage is 156.4 inches long with a wheelbase
of 92.9 inches. The four-door versions are 170.3 inches and the
wheelbase is 104.3 inches. All versions are 68.1 inches wide and 65
inches tall. The front and rear tracks are both 56.7 inches. All
versions sit 7.9 inches off the ground. The two-wheel drive, four-door
versions weigh 3,186 lb if manual and 3,230 lb if automatic. The
two-door, two-wheel drive model is 3,108 lb. The two door, four-wheel
drive model is 3,230 lb. The four-door, four-wheel drive models are
3,352 lb if manual and 3,396 lb if automatic.
It would be rather involved to change it over to a gasoline engine. Most likely you'll need the engine, computer harness and computer, and possibly the transmission from the same vehicle that has a gasoline engine.
For Automatic Transmission the fluid needs to be changed around 75,000 miles, but check fluid levels a few times a year to make sure of no leaks the transmission dip stick is located toward the back right of the engine if you can't find it have your mechanic show you where it is at.
