Replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.

Hard to start hot engine 3.5 l KIA sorento 04 after several mile


Hi, There are a lot of components that help to make the engine run. Most of them are computer controlled. I would have your mechanic check it out with a scan tool. (code scanner).
If one sensor is bad it can change a lot of things on how the car runs. Good luck.

Kia Sorento V-6 start-up difficulty


You probably should perform a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel pressure is bleeding off of the fuel rails when the engine is shut off. If it is, you could have a bad fuel pressure regulator or a bad check valve in the fuel pump module (which will require replacement of the module).

One way to test for this condition without any tools is like this:
cycle the key ON, wait about two seconds, then OFF, wait about 2 more seconds, and back ON again. Repeat his 3 or 4 times before turning the key to the CRANK position. If the engine starts immediately every time you do this, then the hard starting is definately caused by the fuel pressure bleeding off.

At an idle, no car should have a red hot exhaust manifold. If it does, this could indicate a clogged Catalytic Converter. or a o2 sensor thats bad. I would not drive it until it gets fixed. convertor, timing, etc, just get it checked out! good-day !

sounds like you have a bad catalytic converter when they clogg your car cant exhaust and creats backpressure that stalls out your car the same thing with your air filter if its dirty your not getting enough clean air to the car... but because it runs 10 min... before it dies and you are getting no warning lights, and the car restarts after it cools down makes me think catalytic converter.... i hope this helps

I have a 03's sorento and this is quite a common promblem with these cars. First there has been a recall for these cars, if you havn't got it done, get it done, It's free of charge. The recall is the Camshaft Position Sensor. It will cause the car to run unstable, break and engine stall and causes accident and the engine light will come on. Secondly I had the same promblem that you were having, engine was shaking and sputtering and check engine light came on. What I found out is it is the EVAP Emission control system leak large bank 1 & bank 2 system too lean sensor problem. Had to take it to the shop to get the mass sensor replaced. It was a $900.oo + job, I recommend you taking it to the shop to get it diagnos to see what code it is giving you so you would know what exactly you are dealing with.

2003 kia sorento will not re start after running around town


Engine temperature spikes when a car is shut down and many cars have an extra switch for the electric fan that will turn them on if the temp rises past a certain point.
That switch may have failed, making it necessary to allow the engine to cool off.
Your car may not even be equipped with that feature so I would suggest trying the following: When restarting soon after shutting off, slowly press the accelerator pedal completely to the floor and don't let up on it until the engine fires. Allow at least 20-30 seconds of cranking before giving up on it. The engine may be getting surplus fuel because of a problem with the computer or a 'cold start valve' that lets the engine draw more fuel when cold so starting it 'hot' it may be getting too much fuel to fire (flooding).
