High road noise comes from over inflated tyres---tyre tread pattern---tyre construction (ply rating). It comes from hard insulators in the suspension pivots(rubber/ plastic bushes )If the shock absorbers are worn or seizing up the extra noise is transferred to the body You have the year as 2014 but I suspect you meant 2004 in which case the rubber bushes may need replacing as the insulating qualities would be lost due to age.

Testimonial: "Thank you but it is a 2014, Yes, new. Sorento. Tires are set at 33 PSI as recommended on the door pillar. We now ave 2,000 km on it and no change in road noise. Still very high."

    I bought a misubishi lancer which was level lower than the rally art version and is a car built to the rally art specifications. I found from day one that there was more road noise than I thought there should be and on investigation I found that the rubber insulators were of a harder material than the normal sedan and this was transmitting the extra noise into the cab. Over time the noise diminished to a lower level as the rubbers softened from use so unless you can get the manafacturer to change the suspension insulators to a softer material you may be stuch with the noise for some time.

SOURCE: Kia Sorento has high whining

the most common cause of this would be a defective power steering pump, also make sure it is full of fluid and has no leaks in the system.

SOURCE: kia sorento 2.5crdi xe is making a high pitch humming noise above the normal engine noise? e

Humming bird caught in the engine cooling fan blade?

On a more serious note: It is absolutely impossible to help you figure out what is causing your noise without being able to hear the noise. Some engine noises can be very difficult to diagnose when you have the car right in front of you.

I would recomend taking the car by the local auto repair shop and see if one of the techs will loan you a professional ear.

Check your owners manual. It either draws from the main reservoir, or there's one near the back of the vehicle on one side or the other. The owners manual is your friend.
