Hi guys i have a 2016 lx turbo sorento with 123 000km. I send my truck at Kia last week and they told me i need a new engine cause the cam seized. I took my truck at my place and turn the cam and everything was fine ?!?!. I scan the truck and i have P2008-P0014-P0017. on the idle less than 1000rpm the truck shut off and doesnt turn properly. If its under 1000 the truck runs great... I think i need to change Cam sensor, crank sensor the ocv and cvvt assy... do you have any ideas about my problem ?

If you don't trust that Kia dealership find another one, or if its out of warranty find a reliable independent.

Less than / under 1000 rpm shuts off/ runs great ?????? - what is it?

What do you mean it "doesn't turn properly"?

With so many confusing comments, I don't know if it runs at all.

Do a forum search for intake runner problems.

That sounds like a timing issue. I would inspect the timing chain & tensioner if you can:


If that is all good, then I would guess it's a weird electrical issue with one of the components relating to those error codes you're seeing.

Your P2008 code points to a faulty VCMA, which could indeed give the thing an idle akin to something with a full race cam.
The VCMA runner on these engines has been known to be a problem, and is definitely where you need to focus your attention. Search this forum for "VCMA" and I think you'll find a number of threads dealing with it.
