Hi there
I have a 2001 sportage S, you are going to have to buy
a new Master cylinder, what is happening is when you press
the brake pedal some of the brake fluid is going past the Seal
and when you release the pedal it forces the fluid which as come
past the seal along the piston rod, the fluid then runs down the front
of the Servo, i had the same problem.

Glad to see you have got fixed up with the mastercylinder,
hope you get the window motor fixed, taking mine into the
dealer tomorrow to have a new connecter fitted on the air
flow meter,the sensors are Bosch but the koreans use cheap
connectors and they build up a resisdue and it gives the ECU
false information, it won,t loose the revs when you take your
foot off, and sometimes it revs up without touching the throttle,
iv,e had new one,s on the IAC and the TSP so if you get this
problem this is what it could be, all Sportages are the same
theres a chap in the USA called Axeman you will see him on
this forum he soldered the connectors straight to the Sensors
says he has never had any trouble since.

I had similar problems with connector blocks in my last car a Renault Espace. I did the same I cut the connectors off and soldered them back together, never had anymore problems.

Hi pepper
You say you cut the complete connectors of then just soldered
the wires to the pins in the sensor, axeman said he used a dremel
(whats a dremel) and cut away the conector then soldered it to the
sensor, mine seem ok now ,iv,e just had the airflow meter done,
but it if it starts to play up again i will after think about doing this,
bit drastic though don,t you think. :gunsmilie:

guess what mine does the same goes up tp about 2500 revs now and again ,seems to do it only in hot weather though :blush:
a dremmel is one of them little hobby drills that come with loads of attatchments
i think prices start from about £20 at b&q
i just clean mine with a brake /contact cleaner spray i got from the fitters at work
works for a week or two
i wonder if there is another make of sensor out there that would fit rather than keep sticking on the boche make.

car goes into dealers thurs for new master cylinder , was talking to head mechanic about it he said should take only a hour depending on the bleed nipples ,apparantly the sportage`s nipples can after a couple of years be rather prone to snapping when attempting to loosen them :57: :57: :57:

Tariblend's right the Dremel is a small drill like tool with lots and lots of different attachements. you can use it for drilling, grinding and sanding work. also for cutting wires off very easily and neatly.

Oh and I cut the connector out completely and soldered the wires together then covered them with heat shrink insulation.

Cheers guys
now i know what a dremmel is,thanks for that,had the new connector
fitted today and everything seems fine , for how long i don,t know,
i,ve been cleaning my connectors with carbureter cleaner, like
you it worked for a couple of weeks then starts playing up again.
I,ts not the actual sensor which is crap i,ts the connector, because
as pepper says it works if you solder the wires directly to the sensor.
Happy motoring :clap:

well got my my master cylinder fitted :) but car has been back twice on account of the break pedal creaking like **** :blush: took day of work today to get it sorted once and for all :amen: dealers had to refit master cylinder again ,but now everything is hunky dory :right:
the dealer has been great though every time i rung up about it been no better they got it straight in to work on , only had to wait an hour and a half :trophy:
apparantly it was because the first seal was dry which was causing it to be stiff and creak when pressed.

update on my rising revs problem is i bought a dremmel and a small bass wire brush attatchment then polished the connecters on sensers and hey presto revs back to normal
will see how long this works for , if it lasts a couple of months i`ll do this again rather than the solder method

Hi guys
Just been up to York for a week with the caravan and the
Sportage seems to be going well, made it growl a bit up that
M62 there some steep climbs after you leave Oldham,but it
seems to be loosing the revs ok when you change gear.
I think i will have to invest in one of these dremel kits.
