Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

2 Answers

I have a 2002 kia sportage 4x4 5 speed manual. i drove it to work and drove home from work everything was working fine. the next morning i got in the car and pushed the clutch to start it and the pedal had no pressure at all. i started it in 1st gear and drove it with out the clutch and everything works fine. just no clutch pressure in pedal. is the brake master cylinder used for the clutch and the brakes? im thinking it might be the slave cylinder. i had someone push the clutch while i watched the slave cylinder and it doesn't move at all wen the clutch is being pumped. is someone could give me some imput that would be great. thanks

The clutch master is separate to the brakes but it may use a common reservoir
there is no oil in the system if the slave cylinder is not moving
the car is 15 years old so replace both the clutch slave and master cylinders

Top up your fluid, if it works look for a leak on the cylinder, master and slave

2005 Kia Sportage ac does not blow for a few days then next morning it will be fine again

There may be a cabin filter, but you should still hear the blower running even if the filter is clogged.
A mechanic would check for voltage and ground at the blower motor when it does not work.

My kia sportage diesel is puffing blue smoke.

Nothing to fix friend. See, in diesel, when cold, there is an electric plunger on the throttle that speeds the idle a bit till warm up. Connected to that same wire is the cold start/temperature sensor. When cold/cool this sensor will excite the plunger to speed the idle, and put more fuel into the engine making the smoke you see, until warm up is reached and the sensor shuts down. You really don't have a repair needed friend.
