  1. 2012 Sorrento Oil Burning

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Here's a long thread on this. 2012 2.4L Sorento Excessive Oil Consumption Dirty air filter can affect MPG some. I use good quality ones so I swap them out every 6 months. When I notice a decline in some MPG, I put in a new one. Works good. Not the case for everyone though. Tires are properly...
  2. Anyone know what the "XM" stand for ??

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I always thought XM meant SiruisXM radio. Looking closer I think it was shortened from designation XMA.
  3. fog lights

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I installed OEM fogs in the bezels, wiring and replaced the stalk with the fog light switch one about 7 years ago on my 2012. Some of the wiring needs to go in the fuse box under the hood and inside through the firewall. Plus, it's better to remove the front bumper so I had the shop lift the...
  4. 2013 Drivers side water leak

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I saw the thread on firewall too. How about the weatherstripping/seal on the door? That runs along the whole length? Is it properly sealed? In nice and tight? I check mine from time to time because I run a wire for my dashcam and hide in in the channel along the driver side door and pillar.

  6. hood latch issue

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Not the same model but have you tried looking at these two videos? I think it might give you an idea where to look and go. These vidoes are the same in two parts for a 2013 kia sportage. It might help some.

  8. 2011 Sorrento - Steering wheel jerks at odd intervals on smooth pavement

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Did you get a camber kit installed? Check the camber/strut bolts for looseness to rule it out. I got a camber kit installed to fix alignment issues and it helped. About 3 months later, the right front loosened a little causing noise and thumps. Mech tightened the bolt and all is fine. This is...
  9. 2010 Kia Sorento Low Temperature Heat

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Aside from these other ideas to check, have you pressed the A/C button on to see if any difference? Yes, even when the heat is on.

  13. 2012 2.4L Sorento Excessive Oil Consumption

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Oil is different for everyone. I started out with Mobil1 5w-20 every 5K change after I passed 75K and settled on Pennzoil Platinum high mileage 5w-20. Sometimes it's best to experiment. It can take awhile but you'll find what works for you.I notice a little consumption now. It got to the point...

  15. 2012 2.4L Sorento Excessive Oil Consumption

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I use Kia OEM oil filter regardless of oil brand and type. Is there a reason for using Fram? I don't know if it's a myth but I always see posts saying not to use them or Kia does advises against them.
  16. 2011 Kia Sorento instrument cluster not working

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    That sounds like the crankcase position sensor. Mine did the same thing a couple years ago and replacing the CKPS fixed it. I had to use the Sportmatic mode to shift the trans into gears. It's a known issue along with a cheap and quick fix by yourself. Here's the video fromthe list VIM made...

  18. 2012 2.4L Sorento Excessive Oil Consumption

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I always put Techron concentrate plus fuel system cleaner at every oil change because Kia says I should. I put it in regardless of where I get my gas. Is it helping? That I don't know but I do it anyways. https://kia.oemdtc.com/109/fuel-system-cleaner-recommendation-and-fuel-quality-information-kia
  19. Trailer Hitch mounting bolts

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Did you spray and clear out the holes before threading? Like this video at 1:50 https://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-trailer-hitch-2013-kia-sorrento-c13073.aspx I don't know the exact size but might help at the manufacture websites like Curt or the site of this video, eTrailer/
  20. Front suspension noise... My experience, fix and, perhaps, a roll call?

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    If you can jack up your front end, check for play on the wheels. I too had loose strut bolts but it was the loose camber kit I had put in to fix alignment issues. The camber bolts needed to be tightened about 3 months after they were installed. Better after that.
