SOURCE: 2009 Kia Sorento. When starting smoke pours out the exhaust

Should still be under warranty at that age - ask the garage to try known good injectors from a donor car

SOURCE: fail to start from cold

check the two glow plug relays in the small fuse box behind the big one.(i know it has no glowplugs but the relays controll the heater) they should be 12 v. or connect a jump lead from the positive terminal on the batt to the foremost connection on the heater. leave for 10-15 secs then start. if it starts the relays are shot. 20£ each from a kia dealer

SOURCE: My Kia Sorento will start

When the fuel pump was replaced it is important that you install a new fuel filter as it is necessary to have a clean filtered fuel into the pump. Also check the injectors and the spark plugs.
If the spark intensity is low check the HT COILS and the ignition system triggers to the HT coils.
If spark is good then the fuel pressure and calibration must solve the issue.
Take help for consensus.
Thank you for using fixya.

Question: does the sign IMMO (yellow) light disappear after some seconds of ignition turned on? If not you may have to close your car with your keys, than open them with the keys, than start your engine.
Should work if you are experiencing the above problem... Just an idea.

2011 kia sorento won't start in cold


Check the engine temperature sensor. There should be two of them, one that reports it inside of the car and one that reports it to the ECU. The one that reports it to the ECU has likely failed and needs to be replaced.

My 2004 Kia Sorento won't steer in the morning . It is extremely stiff. The dealer changed the sensor and it has made no difference. Is it a rack problem ??


sounds like it is. but also make sure the pump has correct preasure in the am. it does sound like the rack, they wont turn until car is warm sometime they turn one way but hard to turn the other way until hot. good luck.
