  1. 3.8 Engine Compatibility

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Okay, thanks guys but y'all are a bit late šŸ˜‚ I did a bunch of cross referencing and went with an engine from a Hyundai Entourage. Yes that engine is in a transverse orientation, but it's basiclly the same, even the Sorento has the transverse engine mount holes on the timing cover. To make this...
  2. A/C clutch not engaging

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    I had a similar issue on my 06. The coil in the compressor was bad, there's a little resistor like thing in the surface of the epoxy on coil that burned out(see pic). A way to test it is to take the one wire that plugs into the compressor and jump it to 12v and see if it clicks and pulls the...
  3. 2006 Kia Sorento on & off Airbag light

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Thank you so much for trying to help me!! I really appreciate it, but the issue seems to have resolved itself. The airbag light has literally been off about since my last reply, over a month! Yes the light still works too. I guess consider this thread solved.
  4. 2006 Kia Sorento on & off Airbag light

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    So hi again guys! I sold my '05 Sportage 2wd, but now I have an '06 Sorento 3.5l, 4x4 with low range. (Skip to second paragraph to skip introduction and to the issue) I got this baby off the 'ol Craigslist for a whopping 800 dollhairs(dollars), and get this, she runs and drives! Only one issue...
  5. 05 Sporty No Dash Lights Please Help!!

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Thanks again for the help. But I determined the cluster wasn't getting a positive source for the gauge lights. I decided to run a jumper wire from the tail lights to the positive on the dimmer switch. I soldered after the tail fuse to keep it safe. It must have burnt a wire some where behind the...
  6. 05 Sporty No Dash Lights Please Help!!

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Yeah, I tested it and it works fine *sigh*
  7. 05 Sporty No Dash Lights Please Help!!

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Yes, I checked those. The ones in the engine bay's fuse block, right? I've checked every fuse and relay I can find... I removed the headlight switch and tested it and it seemed to check out. The taillights and head lights work with no issues. I've looked at pretty much every wire I can without...

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Haha That's understandable. I kinda am though, but it's non engine related http://www.kia-forums.com/2g-2003-2010-sportage/287530-05-sporty-no-dash-lights-please.html#post1745250 I really need help on it, but I can't get any replies :(
  9. 05 Sporty No Dash Lights Please Help!!

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Hey guys! So I did something so stupid. In all my years of hooking up jumper cables, I've never hooked the cables up backwards... But I did. I was using my stang to jump off my 600 dollar sportage to do a compression check while diagnosing the no start issue. When I hooked the cables up, the...

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Okay, I'll check that out. It's currently giving me a check engine light. I do have one more issue, that's unrelated, but it's the dash lights. I think I'll start another thread of that though. Thanks again, and to those who also helped me!

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Thanks for the suggestion. I checked out the thread and thought it was worth a try, the new head I bought did have some sludge in it(I did clean it). But the screen filter did have a little sludge in it too, so I cleaned it with brake clean and slapped it back on. After driving about 20 miles...
  12. 2005 Sportage 2.0 Crank But No Start.

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Sorry, but I didn't get those pictures today like I had indented. I was busy and I had to go to pull a part again to get a steering wheel for the sportage. But while I was there, my mechanic's intuition told me to get a new cam position sensor, and I did. So I replaced it, easy peasy, and it...

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Are you referring to the cam sprocket the timing belt rides on? If so, it should be on right. I didn't touch it when I pulled it off of the pull a part car. But I did feel it could have been wrong, so I double checked it with the warped head I was replacing, and they were the same, lobes and...
  14. 2005 Sportage 2.0 Crank But No Start.

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Alright guys, so I got the new head on, but I had one issue. When I put the timing belt on the compression tested 10ish psi on all the cylinders. I was and still am confused. I checked, double checked and triple checked the timing marks and they are on point. I don't understand it. I was looking...

    CORRECTION Straight edge on the head, not block.

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    Alright, so something else I came across was the no coolant in the block or head. I decided to fill the block with water to check for leaks like a cracked block or etc. The aforementioned water pump was leaking like a sieve, the seals and bearings are shot in it. You don't think the previous...

    Thank you for your reply. I pulled the timing gear off the crank, and it came off smoothly. The woodruff key is in good shape, and so is the slot on the crank and the keyway on the gear. So it all seems 100% in order.

    2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    I wish I had, but I didn't think of it at the time... I guess my brain wasn't working right at the time haha Thanks for the reply, but I don't think that's it. I checked all the timing marks, and it all checked out. I also used a metal rod to check the piston travel and valve opening and...

    First off, hello every one!! I'm new to the Kia forums, and was looking for some help. I mainly work on GM and Ford vehicles, and till now I've never even touched an Asian/Korean import like Kia lol. So I was searching around cl and others apps alike, and I ran across this 05 Kia Sportage for...
