Kia Sorrento ex. 2005/ 59,000 km. Problem has been intermitting/now full time
The car has no acceleration. The revs wont go beyond 2000. Brought it to local garage [not Kia main dealer] They checked it on machine and said the voltage from the air intake sensor in the air master meter was not changing [1.5 volts at low revs, should change up to 5 volts as air intake increases]. Foot was to the floor, revs only 2000 and voltage 1.5 volts. at air master meter. Fitted new meter, still the same reckons supply problem. Wants me to leave car with him for a couple of days to strip things out to find problem. Says it will be costly [ strapped for cash at the moment] and will have to hire a car [more money which I do'nt have]. Can you point me in the right direction please. email@example.com. Regards, Bill

Hi emissionwiz is more than likley to be correct the sensor not going to be chaging so much if it won,t rev over 2000 [no revs no increase in air flow ] if emissionwiz soloution doesn,t work try looking at ignition sensors as it may be affecting the timming best of luck yates210456

Yes - that's the timing belt service. It's the most expensive of the service intervals, but it's not unique to the Sorrento. Most cars require it. It involves considerable external engine disassembly, and the installation of a new timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, various idler pulleys, cam and crank seals, accessory belts, all fluids, all filters, and spark plugs. In addition, there is usually a brake and suspension inspection and a tire rotation.
Follow the owners manual!! Im unsure cause i dont know the size motoror what kind of tranny you have!! If you dont not have the owners manual then i would call your local Auto Zone and ask them! If they play stupid then call the dealership and ask for service!! I promise they wont take you out back and shoot you!! I have to call them all the time for questions!!
