SOURCE: 04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low

The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!

SOURCE: turn off check engine light on 2004 KIA Sorento

If the computer doesn't detect any further issues during it's next several test cycles, the light should turn off. A test cycle may not be performed unless all the conditions it requires are met (been running for a certain period of time, engine temp, etc). On some cases, can take a week or two to turn off. Otherwise you can get an OBD-II scanner and manually turn off the light if you don't want to go to the dealer

How to know when catalytic converter goes out on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Your "Check Engine" light will come on, the exhaust should smell worse than normal, the engine MAY refuse to run well at higher road speeds (if the catalytic plugs the exhaust pipe), and most importantly... if you crawl under the vehicle with it fully warmed up and bring your hand near the catalytic converter, it'll be hotter than the rest of the exhaust system if it's still functioning. If it's not functioning any more, it'll be the same temperature as the rest of the exhaust system.

A good catalytic converter may be hot enough to glow dull red after it's warmed up. That's why the manufacturer always wraps heat shields around them, to keep that heat away from the paint under your vehicle and keep the excess heat from entering the passenger compartment.

YES, the emissions will be effected, you are driving "without" a converter. The computer was programmed to have all sensors work together so the emissions run clean. The oxygen sensors are sending signals to the pc about unclean emissions due to that converter.

Two of the catalytic converters of my kia sorento jeep get red hot. My check enging light is always glowing while driving. The vehicle emits a whistling sound on throtling and the vehicle power is ver


If you scan the error codes what does it say? You can get this done at any autoparts store (chain) for free. However it sounds to me like there is some air restriction in the intake that is causing the loss of power and the exhuast is running rich. This causes the catalytic converter to overheat. You need to be mindful that any leaks of fluid near the catalytic converter can cause a fire and the loss of the entire vehicle when they get this hot.

I'm not certain on the newer vehicles like this but this was a common problem on the older cars when the catalytic converter got clogged. Sometimes due to age and wear the converters would build up n just get stuck. If so, you may need to have them replaced at a muffler shop.

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 !
