Question about Kia Sorento
I bought an OBD2 3100F, BUT IT WILL NOR FIT MY KIA SORENTO
It should fit the connector under the steering column for the engine computer. The connector is shaped so you can only plug the code reader in one way.

The problem may not necessarily be a bad O2 sensor. An incorrect air fuel mixture may also trigger this error.
To see if the air fuel mixture is right you may have to check the ignition for bad plugs or coils. Check the vacuum hoses to and from the engine for leaks, cracks or loose connections. Check also the timing. Inspect the throttle body or the actual intake manifold for build up of dirt. A bad injector could also be the culprit.
The error code Po131 is for the sensor before the catalytic converter. Inspect the cables and the socket of the sensor. Check also for leaks in the exhaust.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
