About Kia Borrego
My Kia Borrego blower motor doesn't work all the time. Which part brings this problem?
The best thing you can do is to run power to the blower motor to check if it works properly every time you touch power to it. Otherwise, the most common cause of this problem is that your resistor goes bad. To fix it, you need to replace it. It is a bit difficult to locate your resistor but it is just out there. Inspect it and you'll see a small black rectangle piece with two (2) screws and some wires. Just unscrew them, disconnect and replace. Easy!
I got a problem with the Check Engine Light of my Kia Borrego. Sometimes, it illuminates at a sudden and not necessary. What good does this bring to me? Any idea or suggestion?
The Check Engine Light is a warning indicator. It means your vehicle computer has detected that a component or system in your emission control system is not working properly. Your problem about your Check Engine Light resulted from various Powertrain Control Module (PCM) issues. This can easily be fixed by updating your PCM software. However, Check Engine Light related problems should be properly diagnosed before any software updates are to be done.
How can I resolve the overheating of my Kia Borrego?
For everything that blows up, you need to trace first the root or cause of it. That is to limit the things you have to consider and provide solution. In your case, you need to properly diagnose the overheating problem. Check these parts. Is there enough antifreeze in the radiator? Aside from looking inside the plastic overflow bottle, you should remove the radiator cap and then inspect the content of your radiator. Check the fluid level whether it is at its proper level or not. In addition, you also have to test the system itself. If after checking it you find no issue such as coolant leak or low fluid level, you go determine when the overheating problem occurred. You need to know whether the overheating occurs only when your vehicle is at a stop or idle. You also need to check if your cooling fan is functioning properly. Most front wheel drive cars use an electric cooling fan motor in front or behind the radiator. Basically, the function of this electric cooling fan is to improve airflow across the radiator at stops or low speeds.
It is significant also that you give emphasis on the need to inspect the proper antifreeze circulation. If there is a restriction in the system, it results in ample airflow across the radiator and clogs. Water calcification can accumulate in the radiator and then drastically reduce the flow of coolant at a very high speed. The only way to fix this problem is to remove the radiator from your vehicle.
Another possible cause is your electric motor cooling fan. You may also at the very least check it. Check it if it spins freely. A wiring schematic is needed to further troubleshoot this problem. This can be found in your repair service manual. You may use this to trace the circuit through the fuse and relay components if all the tests you performed are fine.
