I have a 2006 Kia Sportage Lx 2.7 V6, and My car is reading the code p0885 after putting it on a computer. I took the code to Oreilly and they put it on the computer and it came out to be a fuse. I bought that part but I cannot seem to locate where the power relay fuse goes. Can anyone help?
My 2006 Kia Sportage EX is losing power steering in the rain. The battery light comes on also. I’ve read this could be the Serpentine/Drive Belt and or the Drive Belt Tensioner. Someone said it could be missing the guard that shields the serpentine belt. Do these symptoms sound familiar to other Kia owners? What exactly was done to fix the problem? How much did your repair cost?
It was starting just fine most of the day. While at my cousins house & I was about to leave I noticed it was starting to drag when I tryid to crank it but it did start. It did about 3 or 4 times after that. After returning home from picking my girlfriend from work, I turned off the engine & tried ro restart it, it wouldn't say anything!
What could cause overheating after i changed thermostat and no leaks
AC and heater not working. The fan won't come on at all for either function.
Had the car at shops several times, they can't figure it out. The above lights stay lit on the dash board and I can't get a yearly sticker
It has freon and works fine around town. Quits being cold on long drive.
I took it to Goodyear and they said it had moisture in it and charged me to empty an clean and then redo the freon. But still the same problem.
I do not know which type/brand of transmission fluid to buy for my 2006 Kia Sport age with an automatic transmission. Please answer asap. Thank you.
Never had any problems. Then all of a sudden it shuts off while driving. Turns over no start. Pop clutch to start motor Boggs down and quits.
wondering why my air bag light comes on. Was able to clear it once, but it popped up again this morning after 2 1/2 years -- any thoughts or suggestions?
On 9/25 I was driving home and the engine light came on, I was able to pull into a parking lot and then the vehicle died. I had it towed to a auto shop. Since it was a Friday they couldn't get to it until Monday. On Monday afternoon he called me and said that he thinks it was the radiator that overheated and there was a leak. And when it overheated it shut down and the gauge didn't work. He also said that I was overdue to have the timing belt replaced and that it was badly cracked. So I authorized the work to be done. It cost $1636. I picked it up on Tuesday afternoon 9/29 and drove it home. On Wednesday I only went to work and back. Thursday morning I left for work, stopped to pick up my husband's paycheck and when I tried to start the car, it wouldn't start. So I had it towed back to the same mechanic. He had it all day Thursday and by the mid afternoon, my husband and I went over there. He wasn't sure exactly why it wouldn't start, but that they were waiting for the fuel to drain out because he said he thought that it might be a fuel injector. We left and went home, he called me about 4:30 and said the engine was seized up and that they couldn't even get it to wrench start. Now he is saying I either need to scrap it or get a new engine to the tune of $4300. I am having it towed to my house so I can get a second opinion, but something doesn't sound right to me.
