Question about 2003 Kia Sorento
The exhaust exit terminal does not seem to emit enough heat required when throtled
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.
