SOURCE: Catalytic converter shot

3 front coils? Ignition coils? If the engine had a miss for a long time the excess fuel can ruin a catalytic converter.

How many catalytic converters are on 05 kia sorento

That would depend on whether any have been removed from it before you start counting. But there should be at least one. Have a look at the exhaust system. Cats are usually fitted with a splash guard. But there is one thing, Kia don't make motorcycles.

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.

My kia sorento is white smoking and rough idling please help

this is usually the sign of a blown head gasket. you may also want to check your catalytic converter . look for signs of water in your oil by checking your dip stick. if your oil is a brownish color or you see water on the dip stick, your head gasket is blown and the rough idle is being caused by water leaking into the combustion chamber. when engine coolant is burned it gives off white smoke and it gives off a kind of sweet smell from the exhaust. if the exhaust smells more like oil, piston rings may be the cause. a compression test will help get you on the right track.
