I have a 2 wd manual transmission that has gone out. I purchased a used 4wd transmission not including the transfer case. According to the KIA Global website the transmissions are the same with the exception of the 4 wd having a transfer case and the 2 wd having an extension or tail stock in its place. I have found that the rear case of the 4 wd transmission is approx 11" long and the rear case of the 2wd transmission is approx 6 1/4" long not including the tail stock. This does not worry me as I planned to use the rear case and tail stock from my 2 wd transmission. My problem stems from overall measurements of both transmissions. The 2 wd unit from bell housing to the end of the mainshaft measures approx 30 3/4". The 4 wd unit bell housing to mainshaft end measures approx 26 3/8". This tells me that the 2wd mainshaft is approx 4 3/8" longer than the 4 wd mainshaft. The question: Can I use my 2 wd mainshaft, rear case and tail stock with the rest of the 4 wd transmission parts to make a useable 2 wd transmission?

the light that came on is not the check engine indicator light, but looks like a pump or tube-a cyndrical looking picture

2002 kia sportage 2.0 has severe oil leak in the front upper engine. could this be a cam seal leak or hopefully a really bad valve cover gasket. If it is a cam seal, are they nasty to change.

we have checked everything that is possible and all systems work, voltage,sensors,fuel pump,filters ect. car starts up and runs great let it sit for awhile and it's hard starting. wait about 2-3 minutes starts right up. go figure?
