02 Sporty...Are there supposed to be plugs to cover up the holdown hardware? If so, mine are missing, and it looks kind of tacky. I did get a new cover for my oil cap access. Thanks

The cover I am talking about is the plastic cover that goes over the top of the engine. I believe it is just a beauty cover. It might be optional, but not sure.

I'm going to guess that KIA did not put any kind of cover or cap over the nuts that hold the engine cover. I myself hate engine covers as they look tacky and they are one more thing you have to remove to worn on the engine.

Not all years have the engine cover. I don't know when they started using them on 1st gen Sportages but I think it was around the 2000 model year.
