Sorry you are having a problem. I would doulble check that the idle air connector was plugged in and seated well. It's the square connector below the throttle body. I also supect you missed a vacuum line when reinstalling the Throttle body.

SOURCE: "04"sorento fuel or not?

replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.

SOURCE: Crankshaft positioning sensor?

Sounds like you are back at square one....Therefore, you need to re-test the old sensor to make sure it is bad, re-test the new one to make sure it is not either defective or that it isn't hitting the flywheel. I would go further and test the remainder of the sensors on the engine as well as it is possible that another item is bad. Also make sure your fuel pump is operating properly and has good pressure. No shop tech can do a repair without proper testing,(shops spend thousands of $ on test equipment for that reason) you can't either.
Most inexpensive manuals such as chiltons or haynes have instructions for testing, and for most tests except fuel pump pressure, you can do tests using any good digital multi-meter. From here, I can't responsibly tell you what needs to be fixed, but I can tell you what to do to find the problem....in your case testing!
Good luck!!

How do you change battery cables in a 2005 kia sorento lx


If a car like yours dies while driving then I would suspect a fuel pump issue or a crank position sensor issue. Has your timing belt been replaced? that should be done at 100k miles. If the timing belt is coming apart it will throw pieces of itself onto the crank position sensor. Have someone check the fuel pressure and inspect the timing belt and crank sensor.

How do I repair the P1121, TPS on a Kia 2004 Sorento?


The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) for Sorento & Sedona models. Some Sorento & Sedona vehicles may exhibit diagnostic trouble codes P0121 and/or P1121. This condition mainly occurs in high ambient or desert areas, and can be related to the occasional increase in contact resistance due to excessive wear of the inner elements of the TP sensor. This bulletin describes the proper service and adjustment procedure for replacing the TP Sensor. - Service Procedure Replacement Procedure: 1. Turn ignition OFF. Remove engine cover and disconnect electrical connector from TP Sensor. 2. Remove two (2) retaining screws from TP Sensor and remove from throttle body. 3. Install new TP Sensor to throttle body. Install retaining screws and hand tighten lightly. Adjustment will be required. Re-install electrical connector to TP Sensor.

2005 kia sorento crank shaft position sensor where is it located?


I HAVE A 2005 KIA SORENTO V-6. MY PROBLEM STARTED WHEN I WOULD DRIVE ON TO THE HWY IT WOULD PUTTER LIKE IF I WAS LOSING POWER. THE HOLE TIME THIS WAS GOING ON MY GAS GAGE WOULD NOT WORK. SO I WENT OUT TO AUTO ZONE HERE IN MADERA CA AND BOUGHT A DIAGNOSTIC TESTER AND THE CODE NUMBER P0338 WHICH MEANS CRANK SHAFT CENSER IS GONE. SO WHEN YOUR GAS GAGE STOP WORKING GET YOUR CAR TESTED OR THE BEST WAY TO GO IS TO INVEST IN A DIAGNOSTIC TESTER. IT WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF MONEY
