Who did the work? take it back. If it's DIY double check your work. Knoking as in metalic engine , or knocking as in gas preignition. If gas preignition, timing belt is off a few notches. If it's similar to this google: 2003 kia sorento interference engine
You may have valve timing off so much that your pistons are running into the valves. Bad news!
DANGER....this is telling you there is NOT enough oil pressure. The clatter you hear means inadequate oil is reaching the cams or lifters.
Can you confirm you have used the correct grade & viscosity of oil? Is oil leaking?
Please re-check the oil level again - allow vehicle to sit for 5mins, then check oil level on the ENGINE dipstick. If dipstick level is up to the full mark, then assume you have enough oil and let the engine idle for 5mins.
If the clatter remains, then suspect a problem with the oil pump, or oil filter causing a blockage.

I have a 2006 Sorrento as well where the engine shuts down under acceleration or going up hills. had the fuel filter changed resolved the problem. Now 10 months after original problem has started happening again. Cause id the fuel tank liner delaminating and blocking the hoses and filter with the debris. Might be worth getting it checked
Just to let everyone out there know that in a 2006 Kia Sorento you have to really tug hard upwardly to pop off the 2 plastic "C" shaped hinges off of the small plastic rods on both sides of the glove box after removing the cable (use needle nose on the cable). Be careful as I put some silicone on the tabs to help get it back on.THERE IS NO CABIN FILTER IN THE 2006!! I even had a dealer tell me they had one. Trust me on this. You will even find them for sale.
Hi. The 2006 Kia sorento is not equipped wiht a cabin air filter. Only the 07 and 08 sorentos are equipped wiht this filter. With that said; If your vehicel had a filter, it would be located just behind the glove box. If you were to access it for replacment, you would Open the glove box and remove the side stops so the glove box can swing fully down and hang on its hinges. Once that is done, you will be able to access to the cabin air filter and the clips which hold it in place.
