Question about 2007 Kia Sorento LX 4x4

1 Answer

High revs on start.(is this bad for the engine)

I own a 2007 kia sorento lx. On cold start the engine revs to 2000 rpm than settles to 1500 rpm and when warm ends up at 650rpm. It doesnt clime to 2000 slowly, its like wide open and when it hits 2000 it stays there for about 3-4 seconds and starts to drop. I would hate to own one of these cars up north where the start up temp could be like twenth below zero. I dont know how the bottom end can handle the lack of oil and the forces applyed to the timing belt with such a high start rev. I have talked to the kia service, and they say thats the way it is.(if it was bad for the engine we wouldnt go for the 100k eng.)

High rev at cold (winter cold!) idle


Your toyota technician should know what a "cold starting solenoid" is. It is the little thing that works your throttle until the motor warms up and something else takes over. I'd suggest going to another technician.

Rev count for 2009 corolla pro. goes up when engine starts even when the car is not moving. Is that normal?


High idle indicates that the engine most likely has a vacuum leak. This could be due to many causes; cracked hose or hoses, bad gaskets..ect. Hard to say exactly without more info, but you can open the hood and inspect the vacuum lines for damage or cracks. It is a 2009, so it probably is not something major.

i would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--
