Hi I have a 97 Sportage in Australia.

The temp gauge constantly sits at one line below half way.

Is this normal, as to me the engine is constantly hot and the cooling fan is always on.

Many Regards

Joe

If My 2001 and your kia have the same dashboard a needle width should be normal !
When my 01 started going almost down to the cold side it needed a new thermostat ! also
check hoses and coolent --as far as fan goes I believe my engin is a bit different !
In New Joisey we have a wide variation of tempertures from winter to summer !
Living in a swamp / marsh isnt easy for an old timer like me to doo repairs at times !
Winter is too cold and we have flesh eating bugs in summer ! I would go with the stat
but check hoses at least every year !
