2003 kia sorento wil turn over but won,t start. after a while it will start up. l can drive down the road and it will cut off. after awhile it will start back up l checked the code and wasn,t getting any...


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.

replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.
