Kia Sorento 2008 A/C stopped before it suddenly stopped accelerating, Engine extremely hot
Yes the temp gage was showing hot
Yes the cold air came thru the vents pretty quickly.
I didn't hear anything other than the vents in the vehicle
We lifted the bonnet and my husband said yes the fans came on
The reservoir is full but it was low yesterday and my husband filled it with water
Coolant was low in radiator, the cap was extremely loose. No visible signs of a leak and no white smoke. The A/C is very cold, yesterday it was not working right before the loss of power.
We purchased the vehicle 2/13. It has not been worked on recently
There are two caps in the from. The right says 'engine coolant' the one on the right is a steel pressure cap. The steel pressure cap was loose and area showed signs of wetness. Put over a galleon of water in the LEFT. Ran the vehicle on the highway at 70 mph. Temp never even rose above the halfway mark and the air conditioner blew ice cold.
