Could be. Is the trans fluid dark or does it smell burnt? Clutchs could be done also.

Hi Angela

Increase the idle speed slightly.
If there is no manual idle speed adjustment screw, then it electronically controlled by an idle valve which could be faulty or may be needs to be cleaned only.
All the best

He guess at the brake switch sensor. Sounded like the ABS switch to me. I would see if he could take the 486 off of the 1890. Also check for recalls and/or warranty, maybe it's a known and covered issue he's not investigating.

Kia Sorento fuel gauge prob.

What I do is go by miles per gallon and fill the tank when I've driven enough for it to drop. As long as the odometer works it's all good. You can fix it if you want to go to the trouble. It's either a bad card in the tank module or a resistor fell off in the instrument panel.
Panels can be refluxed just like motherboards by tossing it in the oven for a few seconds. Tank modules have to be replaced.

Car stops moving in reverse gear

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
