Has anyone put a 2016-2018 2.4 engine in a 2014 Sorento? Having a hard time finding a fair priced replacement. It appears they moved the intake cam sensor and vvt sensors. Will one of these engines work in the older car? I know you would need harness plugs but they appear almost identical long blocks

Did you try taking it to a Kia dealer? Unless there are unusual circumstances, the engine replacement for your vehicle should be covered 100% by Kia (including a paid rental for you to use until the engine replacement is completed).

Unfortunately it’s an early 15 build and not covered. It has 2014 engine. Also it has 190,000 miles.

YOUr avatar shows a 2015 Sorento..are you talking about the same car ? .the replacement of the 2.4 engine covers this engine production ending in March 2014...after which they have supposedly corrected the metal chips problem....
