12 pages with pictures and you can not tell what they are replacing? It clearly shows the six throttle plate middle manifold unit. That is the only thing that has the moving parts. The lower is like a 60's-70's muscle car high rise six opening manifold. And the upper is just a air houseing that has two sets of six openings in it and the single throttlebody with cable going to it we see when you open hood. One short run, one long run. Both goverend by the six throttle plates of the middle manifold. Unless bad, all external parts will transfer over in KT2008020601 dated 2/6/2008. The ICV VAC VALVE is one of them. Please go back and reread pistn that carefully. Think six inline downdraft weber carbs and you might get the idea sorta for the rest those out there. Or if you are more familiar with modern EFI and multi-port throttle plates designs on many performance engs that too.

For the rest that wish to read about it other then pistn, it is at the KIA Motors web sight. Under CAMPAIGN KT2008052101 now, not Tech Op's KT2008020601.

Sorento ICV Replacement (campaign -73)
May 21,2008
N America
6/19/2002-4/21/2005 Prod

Manifold Sub Ass 29222 39800QQK KIT
includes all parts to do job including ICV Valve and gaskets and supercedes the old non kit 29222 39800 fix (KT2008020601 pistn). It came without the ICV valve and gaskets. Thou the three gaskets were listed for use as related parts to replace and were needed.

My guess and it is ONLY a guess is that the build range had less then good quality control from part manufacturer of middle manifold 29221 39800 units. After that date they had a better batch. Or in fact went to unit 29222 39800 for production. So from 4/21/2005 on, the 3.5 with manifolds 29222 39800 was not effected. Might be getting the part maker to kick in finally and admit to it and pay part of cost for recall. Everything else in the recall is just a bunch of gaskets to make it all work.

So far my 03 Sorento EX has had more recalls and things fail like headlight lens discoloring a horn quit the clock does not work and paint coming off door handle. Also window rubber getting spots. In all the years no auto or truck has has so many problems.

Yea, I agree with you Bwee.... 04SorentoLX seems to have a personal thing against Pstnbroke which should not be posted on these pages.

I use this forum to get help and help others.

Screw him. As for you. I never said you were a moron. I merely asked how you (anyone) can read 12 pages of text and pics and still not see what they are doing and replacing. If that is calling you a MORON to you, then so be it. You are free to think it then with my blessings. That is not what I said, but maybe now......... "everything I have read of his on here makes a quite bit of sense". Btw when I am rude you will not be in any doubt.

Well I am going to drop my 03 Sorento off at the Dealer tomorow. I just hope it still runs as smooth as it does now after what ever they replace or do to the engine.

Now gentlemen, Lets not get into a pissing contest here!!! We are just trying to help each other out!!!! I called my dealer today and Im goining to bring it in tommorow. I asked about relaceing the spark plugs while they have it apart but the service manger said $225.00. I told here that was crazy and Had her transfer me over to the general manger of dealership. I told him the same thing, While they have it tore down all the way and the plugs are right there I wouldnt mind paying for the spark plugs and maybe 1/2 hour labor. he said he would look into it and call me back. Will let you all know how it turns out!!!
