I own a Kia Sorrento 2.5 diesel 2007,94,000 miles,Every time I went down a gear to hard accelerate car would jump straight into limp mode with no lights on dash.restart then everything ok.
Took to local garage nothing showed on diagnostics.
Fuel pump filter was then checked(under back seat),fuel pipes flushed out(sludge came out)and a new fuel filter fitted,
Hey presto car now goes like a rocket.
Cost of fix £96

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'
