Have look at the tyre if you could see any bulges or have a look at the rim on the edge for any damage

Thats called a shimmy. And you have shocks instead of struts.
Chances are you have a ball joint or tie rod end about to fail. Something is very loose in the front steering or suspension. I'd put money on it being a ball joint.

2003 kia sorento keeps slowing down to a stop but doesnt cut off.I have to wait before I press on gas again.


I can't see the T/Belt giveing that problem however if the T/Belt is due it should be done ASAP because if the belt breaks it can cause pistons to hit valves (Very expensive to fix) but could be the catalytic converter or a number of other things. My thought would be to undo the o2 sensor in the exhaust & run car this will allow exhaust to escape without going through the catalyst. If car stops slowing to a stop you know that the catalyst is blocked. Or remove the catalitic converter & look through it it should look like honey comb you can see through. P.S your car posibly won't go without the o2 sensor in.

Bad vibration from a stop. worse when you give it gas from a stop with a loud rumbling growl sound.vibration is really bad at lower speeds, going thru parking lots and turns.


Sounds like a bad wheel bearing to me. Jack up each corner of the car one at a time and grab the tire. Shake like crazy on it - if it moves, you've found a bad bearing. It should be solidly on the hub with no play whatsoever.

Check your wheelbearings for play and your tierod ends for play,I'm sure one of these two are at fault.

Have a cylinder leakdown test done...likely they missed another bent valve. I'm betting it's an exahust, because it would be less drivable if it was an intake, but regardless, I'll bet that is your problem.
