  1. Takes about ten seconds of holding the key in start position before it starts.

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    My first thought would be a bad earth connection. (Body - engine - starter).
  2. 138bhp v 168bhp engines

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Well, the engine blocks are the same and will fit. The problems will be getting the electrics to match the wastegate turbo (rather than the variable geometry turbo). Maybe the biggest issue is that the vacuum pump/pipework is different (on rear of cyl. head on 168 and back of alternator for...
  3. Clutch problems

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    You could get a solid flywheel (aftermarket) replacement for the dual mass flywheel. iirc the kit includes a new pressure plate. given the mileage it seems like replacing parts piecemeal would be a false saving. If the slave is leaking (again) your mechanic probably owes you.
  4. wedgee frount side lights not working on 2005 sorento sxe uk spec

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    @wedgee ps your post prompted me to check and I had 1 failed. Yes, they work without headlights on (as they should). Try with key in ignition, but ignition off and sidelights only on.

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Try it again with standard bulbs and see what happens.

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Which manual are you reading? Does not sound correct (actually sounds contrary to 'construction and use' regs.) What year?
  7. Brake Proportioning Valve

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Of course you can. I am constantly :)
  8. Rain water under passenger carpet

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    If you have a sunroof, the most likely is a blocked drain from the front sunroof gully. Drain runs down the 'a' pillar behind the trim. Most likely place for blockage are the outlets below the windscreen behind the plastic cover for the windscreen wipers.Don't try and poke the line clear, it's...
  9. Regarding 2005 Sorento 3.5L auto 2wd tach and transmission question.

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Well imo an auto that shifts so smoothly you don't realise it can't be bad. Yours is probably the 5-speed auto with sport shift 'semi-manual'. Also with 'lock-up torque converter' that allows revs to drop at cruising speeds to save fuel. On the other hand it could possibly be the early 4-speed...
  10. 03 Sorento 2.5 CRD SE - CAN bus communication error

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    The CAN bus error may be a red herring. The early models didn't really use Can bus functionally. Even later models it is iffy. 'Hard starting' could be failure of the diesel return pipes off the injectors - air in the system can do that. Heat and age can fatigue the pipes. (Also same applies to...
  11. Power windows & mirrors not working, tail lights coming on when hitting horn

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Nah! Blow it up and post a video. I need a laugh :)
  12. 03 Sorento 2.5 CRD SE - CAN bus communication error

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Have you cleaned the strainer in the fuel tank? google 'Sorento fuel tank delamination'.
  13. 2007 kia sorento keyless entry

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    The antenna is behind the dash, above the glove box. You can see it if you remove the side panel(s) next to the radio head unit. Where it goes from there I'm not sure, but the receiver itself may be part of the ETACS or BCM. Why do you think it needs replacing?
  14. Loss of power

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Guess you got lucky with the repair cost. Since you are in the UK (I think!) you could possibly have hit Kia UK for the cost of a replacement tank and associated rrepairs for 'delamination of tank lining'
  15. Jumping

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    TOD or EST?
  16. TOD - '04 Sorento EX. Surprise...issues

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Sorry I misunderstood when you said 'not applying correct voltage'. When you rebuilt the unit what oil did you refill with? Also could it be an oil pump failure in the TC? Never heard of a failure, but you never know.
  17. Kia TOD issues

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    The OP never returned to forum after Jan 2018.
  18. TOD - '04 Sorento EX. Surprise...issues

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    How is your tire wear? Where did you measure voltage to clutch pack? Replacement of the control unit would in my experience be a very rare occurence. (Anyway, it's ON the transmission tunnel, under the carpet, passenger side.)
  19. Rear hatch window 2006 Sorento not working

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    no clue, sorry.
  20. Rear hatch window 2006 Sorento not working

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Sometimes problems within rear hatch are a result of broken/damaged wire(s) within the rubber connector between body and top of hatch. Constant movement + age = fatigue.
