The fuel filter is inside the tank in a canister that holds the fuel pump. Contrary to popular belief the 2003 Kia Sorento has a fuel filter that you can get at your dealership. (I purchased one today at my dealer for appox $46 vs the $320 for the whole new pump). It was the only model year that had a replaceable filter.
To find the filter:
Open back passenger door and pull bottom of the seat forward. You will see a square metal plate that has a wiring harness attach. Use a Phillips screwdriver and remove the 4 screws. Unhook the gas lines, and 3 electrical plugins. Unscrew the 4 bolts holding the pump canister and slowly remove the canister from the tank pulling up. Inside this canister us the pump and the filter etc.
You will need to get a diagram from there to remove and replace unless mechanically inclined, although it is fairly simple to do.

I would suggest to change the cat convertor and move on.This will solve your problem and most likely check engine will go a way.Your code is P0431 is related to bad cat not sensor.Over time the cat will store too much carbons and will make it stop from firing up.Bank 1 cat is the driver side and bank 2 is th cat by the passenger side.You can get remanufacture cat at low price and around the $250 rather than by it from the dealer will cost you arm and leg around $800.I hope this will give anyone a good feedback.Mojeer
