#10 of 15 2007 Kia Sportage AC Trouble
Apr 12, 2010 (5:57 pm)
I have been having a problem lately when I turn on my Air Cond on my 2007 Kia Sportage. It runs cool for a while and then the coolness fades out and the air is at the same temperature as inside the car. I see a note from Midnighttaxi on 11/2009 where he says there is a temperature sensor under the dash and he had to have his fixed and it was still under warranty. Mine is under warranty until 60,000 and its at 54,000 right now. Do you think this could be the problem? Also,, I noticed when Im sitting at a stop light , my temperature gauge shows a little hotter than usual cuz usually the dial is right in the middle between hot and cool where it should be. What do you think? The heater works fine.

My 2007 sportage compressor cuts in and off at 20 secs intervals, I am told it could be the temperature sensor. Please. I need your opinion and answers to the following.
What is the correct R134a charging quantity?.
How best to replace a temperature sensor?.
How does it look? (pic or drawing).

It sounds like your evaporator is freezing the condensation and blocking the airflow. this is usually caused by a faulty thermostat inside the HVAC unit. A way to test this is to get a good refrigerator thermometer or one for testing A/C, and put it at a vent in the flow of air, set A/C to max air. If it gets below freezing or really close to freezing before the A/C compressor cluth kicks out, this is most likely the problem. These are usually set at 34f and up depending on make and model. Good luck.

Hi! I know that it has been 3 years, but I need to ask anyway...did you ever get a response to this post? I am having the same problem with my 2007 Kia Sportage and the dealership has not been successful in fixing the problem. The service manager told me that he was unaware of a sensor for the Sportage A/C unit.

Not sure what your symptoms are but the problem I had was with a clogged cabin air filter. You would find it inside and on the left wall of your glove compartment. As soon as I switched out the filter the problem was history. Good luck, Don
