This is almost for sure the fuel relay. I do not know where it is on your car but I would look for it to be by one of the back wheels where road junk can get to it and corrode it. Once found not very expensive and very easy to replace.

SOURCE: 2003 Kia sorento starts and then won't start

There is a black rubber button reset switch right next to the air box, press it sounds like the problem i had its a fuel pump reset (just in case of a wreck it kills the car) but there is a tiny ball in there and if it is rattled a little too much it will fall and you need to press the black looking button to reset it....took me like 4 months to figure it out

It will be a position sensor problem Check the air gap and check that the censor rotor is tight and that there is no material getting in the air gap causing a problem

Tries to turn over then wont let it sit awhile then it starts


It could be starter heatsoak (starter gets hot from engine heat and needs to cool down first).
You can fix it by putting heat wrap on the starter.

2003 kia sorento keeps slowing down to a stop but doesnt cut off.I have to wait before I press on gas again.


I can't see the T/Belt giveing that problem however if the T/Belt is due it should be done ASAP because if the belt breaks it can cause pistons to hit valves (Very expensive to fix) but could be the catalytic converter or a number of other things. My thought would be to undo the o2 sensor in the exhaust & run car this will allow exhaust to escape without going through the catalyst. If car stops slowing to a stop you know that the catalyst is blocked. Or remove the catalitic converter & look through it it should look like honey comb you can see through. P.S your car posibly won't go without the o2 sensor in.
