  1. High Output Alternator Swap from Sephia to Sportage

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    You can run the wire over the cam gear cover and put cable loops on the top bolts of the cam cover, having the cable follow the top of the cover. It is up and out of the way, doesn't get hot, and stays in place!
  2. High Output Alternator Swap from Sephia to Sportage

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    Were you able to do a side by side comparison? Redoing the wiring is easy, getting it to bolt up right is the trick! The Sportage top mount for the adjustable belt tensioner is at 12 o'clock The Sephia one is at 10 o'clock. May work or may need to run a little longer belt.

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    That is correct. It is all internal. The only difference externally is not between years but if it is ABS or Non-ABS Hope this helps

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    I know that he is a reputable guy. There is also a guy in the Ukraine that sells a trackfinder knock off for about 1/2 the price. Only thing is you have to send money via western union not paypal. UPYOURKIA

  14. Best Tire Size 2002 Sportage 4WD RWD

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    Stock wheel size is 205/75/15 As far as "RECOMMENDED" this is the only size Kia recommends. I have read that the Australian Military used Sportages and put on 235/75/15. I have ran 205's, 215', 235's, 30-9.50's, 31-10.50, and now run 265/75/16's. What I noticed as I moved up the scale was...

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    I also vote for the electric fan! But if you really want to replace those studs, I can sell you the whole bracket for $10.00 (used) +shipping, and it has all the studs. Let me know and I can ship it out to you tomorrow. UPYOURKIA
  18. 1997 sportage timing belt walking off

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    When the timing belt was replaced, it is possible that the front crank pulley center bolt has worked loose. Look at the belts to the alternator and AC compressor and see if they are running at an angle. If so, then the bottom pulley and timing belt drive gear has moved forward. If this is the...
