hello, i'm looking to buy a 2000 kia sportage 4wd and 5 speed manual.

it has 180,000 miles. i know the person very well. he has put over 100,000 of those mile on him self. car is in good shape. has a bearing of some kind going out. this is what his mechanic said last year. he has not driven it. he is going to find out what the name of it is and we will go from there.

i'm am wanting to buy the car. dod not know any thing about them really. what do i need to know and look for.

again the car is in very nice shape. i know he has done all the maintenance as needed.

Well if it's a main bearing you got engine troubles..Then it's an engine re-build.

i know it is not an engine bearing. something to do with not going fast enough to get 5th gear or something. i think i might be a throw out or wheel. i know it is a very nice clean car. he has had it 8 years. and not a problem.
