Engine temperature spikes when a car is shut down and many cars have an extra switch for the electric fan that will turn them on if the temp rises past a certain point.
That switch may have failed, making it necessary to allow the engine to cool off.
Your car may not even be equipped with that feature so I would suggest trying the following: When restarting soon after shutting off, slowly press the accelerator pedal completely to the floor and don't let up on it until the engine fires. Allow at least 20-30 seconds of cranking before giving up on it. The engine may be getting surplus fuel because of a problem with the computer or a 'cold start valve' that lets the engine draw more fuel when cold so starting it 'hot' it may be getting too much fuel to fire (flooding).

At an idle, no car should have a red hot exhaust manifold. If it does, this could indicate a clogged Catalytic Converter. or a o2 sensor thats bad. I would not drive it until it gets fixed. convertor, timing, etc, just get it checked out! good-day !

My 2005 Kia Sorento is running hot I have no idea why.


did you check the coolant level? , is a good place to start, a low coolant will make the car running hot, also check if the radiator fans are runing when the car reach the normal temperature, usually in the middle of the gauge..other than , I recommend you to take it to your mechanic to be checked for leaks in case is loosing coolant

Parking lights problem on my Kia Sorento 2003


Ok Maybe it's going to help somebody, I find the problem. It's the Unit DRL (Day Runing Light) control. Just have to unclip the little door on the side of the dash, driver side, it's the little black box holding with a nut right there. Dealer price.....$156.73. They charge 45 minutes to replace it but it take about 5, so do it yourself. Hoping it's going to help.
