if you are losing coolant from the reservoir....you probably have a crack in the bottom of it...a know weak point in the early models.....probably need to replace the reservoir.....can be done yourself.....prices vary on the container from 40-100 depending on your dealer.....

My Kia is having the same problem. The warranty is out. Do you know how much the part was and how long did it take them to get the car back to you. Thanks for your help.">

Checked all the fuses and relays and all is good. Next is replace the blower... Help?

#39 of 42 Problem with A/C compressor in my 2003 Sorento! Help!
Aug 05, 2011 (10:10 pm)
We just bought a used 2003 Sorento and the A/C went out. We replaced the A/C compressor and charged the system with the correct amount of freon and oil...it worked for 5-10 minutes and shut off. We are now thinking that the original A/C compressor wasn't bad at all. It's like something is shorting out or????? Please help if you can! We are in Texas in 108 degree weather!! Thanks so much!
#40 of 42 HEAT NO HEAT, AC NO AC. THAT'S THE QUESTION
Sep 05, 2011 (12:27 pm)
Without sounding redundit, my wifes 2007 Kia Sorento LX 4X4 automatic has these problems:
1. On occation the AC will just quit putting out cold air, though the fan continues to blow (hot air)
2. On occation the Heater will just quit producuing hot air and cold air is being dispursed.
In addition, we have noticed that when breaking at night, the light will slightly go dim. Not sure if this is related, just FYI. My wife is very tenatious as to her up keep and regular maintenance of hr vehicle. With over 30 + days of triple digits, and winter nearing, I want to get this corrected ASAP. Any directions? I have read that AutoZone will do a diagnostic test and provide part replacement number.
#41 of 42 Loss of coolant and loss of heat 2011 Sorento

I will keep everyone posted as this situation develops. Noticed NO HEAT ....Checked the coolant tank and it was empty...radiator was full...Dealer pressure tested system and no loss of fluid was noted...In drive home I noticed I still have NO Heat in the rough range selection of 70-79 deg. I am monitoring coolant tank to see if level drops....Has anyone solved this problem? Thanks, Rick

I know this is way late post but we had similar issue after work was done. Found that there was air bubble in coolant system due to hose being removed during work. This caused car to not have heat. To bleed out just popped the radiator cap and ran air out and works fine now.
