Question about 2004 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

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. bwhite21@gmail.com. Regards, Bill

    This MAF (Mass Airflow) sensor reading is most likely the resault of another problem rather being the problem, have you tested the fuel pressure? Have you changed the fuel filter or checked the air filter?

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

I was told by a consumer that there is an expensive maintance problem that you have to get done to kia serento ex every 60,000 miles is this true


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.

Wont go over 2000 revs. No acceleration.


Doesn't sound like a fuel issue at all.

Go to your kia dealership and have them preform the Induction Control Valve Recall that kia has released.

Have you done spark plugs / wires / timing belt?
