SOURCE: turn off check engine light on 2004 KIA Sorento

If the computer doesn't detect any further issues during it's next several test cycles, the light should turn off. A test cycle may not be performed unless all the conditions it requires are met (been running for a certain period of time, engine temp, etc). On some cases, can take a week or two to turn off. Otherwise you can get an OBD-II scanner and manually turn off the light if you don't want to go to the dealer

2011 Kia Sorento fuel pump replaced twice in two months. Now we are smelling gas. 2 Kia dealers say can't find anything wrong. Can this be a bad gasket or lock ring? Smell is worse with full tank


As it is worse with a full tank, it is my belief that the problem lies between the filler cap and the tank itself. There is a clip and rubber hose joining the two.

The other possibility, but usually on older cars is rust perforation on the top of the tank due to dirt and mud holding water spray and rusting small holes in the top of the tank. I had this on a Toyota.

Why is my 2003 kia sorentos check engine light on constantly and the diagnostic shows misfire code?


You answered your question.
The light is on because the computer detected a problem, which is noted by the trouble code.
You would need the diagnostic chart for that code to find the actual problem.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


If it is a diesel vehicle check the pressure of the diesel pump. It would appear that the diesel pump on this model wears out and it loses pressure. If the pressure is ok there is switch/filter on the common rail that might be blocked. Unfortunately it appears that this switch can not be cleaned but must be replaced. hope this helps.

Can we use 15W-40 motor oil,for my 2004 Kia Sorento diesel.


You use what the owners manual says

I would suspect if it were 15W-30 or 40,
it would be diesel rated oil, not gasoline motor
oil as your asking

Can always check with a dealer or google it
You need the specs for the oil for a diesel

Kia sorento 4x4 6CL code P0300 P0301 P0302


These are codes for misfires on #1,#2, and random cylinders.

A cylinder will also misfire from the injectors as well as the spark side. If this is a v-6, check for camshaft position sensors.

My 2007 Sorento is a 2.5 diesel and has all scheduled service by the Kia dealer. Its done 25,000km goes well in all respects but after being parked for 8 hours it blows a huge cloud of blue smoke on start...


blue smoke would show a lean condition. most likely a fuel line leak between pump and tank not a pressure leak.or a check valve is allowing fuel to run back to the tank
