Question about 2005 Kia Sorento
Just replaced the throttle position sensor on our 2005 kia sorento..went to work yesterday (1.5 miles from my home) kia started fine but changing gears was sluggish ( it is an automatic ) worked 4 hours , came out , kia started up and got me home but gears were still sluggish...left to go back to work 2 hours later , it started up fine , got me to work , I worked a little over 4 hours and then it wouldn't start up...would try to turn over but not start ( engine light came on )...left it overnight , went back at 4 am this morning , it started back up , gears were sluggish again , engine light still on but it got me back home...however I need to go back to work today and I am worried that I will have the same problem...help!!
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.

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!
