Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer:  look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit.  The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

SOURCE: four wheel drive wont engage

I fought with this problem every year since I had the Sportage. And it was so frustrating to find out just when you really needed it, that you did not have 4-wheel drive. I replaced the hubs with manual hubs and I wish I would have done it at the beginning. They work great and are 100% reliable. Bottom line.. the vacuum hubs were a great idea that just plain did not work reliably. Save yourself alot of grief and money and just replace the hubs. Less than $200 including paying someone to put then on and I now can rely on my Sportage when I need it.

Gas smell


The Kia Has a Pocket Of Air Space When your Pushing Gas In On A refueling Take it Slow Add you gas at a lower speed on fill ups or say 20 bucks worth at a time it wont over flow with the air back lash if you slow down that was my experience With mine the inlet hose to the tank has always trapped air from internal pressure built up by gasoline in the tank during warmer weather it will be more, The Gas Cap Is Supposed to Vent Also You might want to check yours out

2001 Kia Sportage goes dead while driving plus gas spews out when refueling


Need a little more info: Is it a V-6? Does it just die at random times? Kia has had problems with crank shaft position sensors. The vehicle will just die and may restart immediately or take several minutes till it will restart.
