2003 Kia sorento starts and then won't start

2003 Kia Sorento sometimes will start if you don't touch the foot pedal, sometimes will start if you just verily push down on pedal, then if you push down part way it will not start all is does is cranks. Then theirs times it won't start at all just cranks no matter what you due. Then let it set for awhile and it may start right back up. Scanner shows no codes, we were told by daeler it was a tps problem we replaced no help. We told in was a crank position sensor we replaced on help. We checked one of the coils shows 12v going in and we get spark at plug. We checked fuel pump when it won't start and we have fuel. Experienced the crank shaft bolt assembly shattered, taken to Kia and lower prtion of motor was replaced. After being in the shop for 5 weeks, got the car back, and have had it for 2 weeks, with under 200 miles, and now it wnt start. I am being tld it is the cam shaft position sensor. All belts were replaced with the motor. Is this caused because of the new belts being put on?

What would cause your accelerator to stop working?


My 2003 Sorento started but wouldn't accelerate with a fault light in the engine management section, turned out to be water had ingressed from the airbox and trickled down to the accelerator pedal and got into the accentuator. Unplug and remove the throttle pedal, open the accentuator and dry it out with a hair dryer, re assemble. Throttle will work but you'll need to get the fault light reset.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

Ouszen
