This noise could be a Joing going out... If this car is a 4x4 then they have a CV joint on the rear to.... If not it could be a rear bearing.... I also something very minor.... If you have plastic hub caps on the rear please take them off then go for a drive to see if the noise continues... This dose sometimes help.... The aftermarket ones can make a noise as i have seen it happen offten

2005 Kia Sorento - in 4 wheel drive, on dry pavement, going slow in forward, turning a corner to the left the rear drivers side wheel tries going in reverse and when turning right the passenger side wheel...


Hi,
Yes, this is normal while in four wheel drive on pavement.
I will try and explain why.
In four wheel drive the front and rear drive axles are linked together by a chain in the transfer case and gears in both axles. This is a direct link with very little play between the front and rear axles.
When cornering a rear wheel will spin faster, or slower depending on the direction of the turn. this causes a binding in the drive line because the drive line wants all the wheels to turn at the same speed. So the wheel "skipping" going in reverse, is the drive lines way of compensating for the different speed of the wheels turning.
Never should a four wheel drive be used on dry pavement. I could cause a break in one of the drive line components. On a slippery surface , snow, mud, gravel, grass, There is enough slippage in the surface to aloow the driveline to compensate for the different speeds of tire rotation.
So do not try at highway speeds on dry pavement.
Your four wheel drive system is working just fine.

I have a 2003 kia sorento ex. when i turn light switch on, nothing happens. I have no tail lights or fog etc. only front running lights. All new bulbs and fuses are fine. Brake lights work.


Hi,

I drive a kia sorento and i have had a similar problem. I have a hitch on the back and the electrical connection was bad and kept blowing fuses. I removed the electrical hookup. Easy to do as it is a plug conected to the harness of your vehicle. Located underneath your vehicle just above the rear wheel well on the passenger side. Your fuse panel is located under the hood of your vehicle next to your battery. Remove fuses one by one and check for any that are blown. I hope this helps.

I have a 2005 kia sorento 80,000 miles a couple of weeks ago this roaring noise comes from the rear end and seems to have got louder with the tire rotation


Check to see if the surface of the tires have even wire, because that will give off a moaning sound that you are hearing while the car is driving. The only other logic that comes to mind could be rear wheel bearings.
