  1. What is the best sparkplug

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    When you pulled the ICV did you check the injector harness plugs? They get very brittle and can cause a misfire from engine vibration.
  2. 2005 Kia Sorento power steering pressure line assembly

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    What I always do is tie a string on the end of the pipe or hose and as it is removed it leaves a trail. Then tie the string back on to the new hose or pipe and snake it back in following the string.

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Well since his original question was about trans fluid that is what I addressed. I would hope that people know to check the engine oil when the engine is off and has set for a while.

    Honest question. Have ever checked any fluids on a car before? You check it while running. There are usually 2 dimples or lines on the stick to fill to.

    First, clean the terminals then continue down to the starter and check voltage while starting. If you are getting the same at the starter then you may have an actual starter issue. Also the mentioned ground issues is a good place to check.
  7. 2003 KIA SORENTO PARASITIC BATTERY DRAIN

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    The 03's were notorious for head lights and tail light going out frequently. When I had mine, the first battery change I put in the largest amp capacity battery that would physically fit. Fixed the problem. Also KIA had a fix by replacing part of the wiring harness. I don't know what the part...

  10. Driveshaft for a 2007 Sorento EX 2WD - 2007-2009 driveshafts interchangeable?

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Based on the part number for a 2007 (49100-3E951) it is the same for a 2008 and 2009. By not serviceable they mean that the individual parts are not available for consumers. A good mechanic will know how to break down a DS and repair it.
  11. Throttle Body Seal

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    I can't help you with an answer. I can suggest a few things. First at some point you will have to decide on whether you are going to replace it or not. If you are, I would tear that thing down and get a look at the seal. The seal may be good and you have a warn shaft. If the shaft is good you...

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    I will look for a post that covers those #s. I don't see the sticky that has them. The new forum format has possibly wiped them out Edit: Found it. Go here https://www.kia-forums.com/threads/accessory-belt-tensioner-bearing-numbers.59695/ To look them up. It worked for me also.
  14. 2003 Sorento Timing Belt

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Can't answer your question. I did mine twice and each time it took me a day. That being said I also did a lot more things than just the TB and accessories.
