What is your temperature at while you are driving? If it is pretty low, then I would suspect an over cooling problem - which tends to be a stuck open thermostat. In this case, your coolant will continue to cycle and not heat up to normal operating temp. If you can't get this repaired right away, you could try putting cardboard in front of the radiator. That would stop some of the cold air from cooling off the coolant while driving.

Hope this helps you out, please rate if it does.

2007 kia sorrento ran but wouldn't accelerate. Can i reset the computer myself to fix this?


If the check engine light is not on there is nothing to reset. If it is equipped with a 3.5 engine you could have a defective throttle position sensor. Common on these engines.

I have a 2003 Kia Sorrento and I just replaced my water pump and now as long as its cold it will run fine but once it warms up it back fires and wants to die. What could be causing this.


I would check the coolant temperature sensor. This tells the ECM what the coolant temp is. The ECM uses this to adjust the fuel rate and engine timing when the engine is cold. If the sensor isn't letting the engine know that the engine is warming up properly, then the engine will continue to get too much fuel and the timing will not be optimal. This can cause poor fuel economy, engine flooding issues, and possibly backfiring.

Control fan keeps running on 2005 KIA Sorrento even when it is turned off


The temp sensor could be bad, a stuck fan relay, programming problem or the engine could be getting too hot and the program override is kicking in to cool the engine even if the car is off.

WHAT OIL FOR 2005 KIA SORRENTO..PLEASE!


In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.

You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.
