Trace the vacuum line from the left front wheel (drivers side) into the engine compartment tee, from the tee it goes up to the vacuum valve. You will see the wires on the bottom of the valve.
The vacuum hoses tend to break at the wheels,check that.
Also, check the hose running into the valve from a little canister, and make sure no hoses are disconnected from the cannister...
Good luck.

Yes you can take your fuse out, but you need your blower fan on when it rains.
Check the switch, it sound's like it has gone bad, then work your way to the Relay's. Not sure how many, if your Kia may have one and different resistors to control the different speed. 
Hope this helps you for a quick fix for now, good luck

SOURCE: My 2005 Kia sorento is

best advice i give here is to trade it in quick its a kia need i say more ,check the gearbox oil level with engine running and drive selected ,wheels chocked as for power problem then its a dealer only as the diagnostics on this vehicle are not on the OBDII in the cab but a funny socket under the bonnet ,its so you have to take it to the dealers for any diagnostics ,best is to trade it in and get a ford focus manual with diesel engine .

2011 KIA Sorrento 2.4 were is the fuel pressure regulator located. put on adjustable fuel reg .need to disconnect stock one


fuel pressure regulators are normally located in the fuel manifold. They are either vacuum controlled or electronic controlled to maintain the right fuel pressure for engine requirements and to shut off the fuel pump when the ignition is turned off
If your manually adjusted unit will not do all that then you are asking for fault codes to appear and all sorts of problems to occur

My 03 Kia Sorento will not go into 4wheel drive. I've tried rolling both back and front with it on then off. Now It's not engaged but the 4wheel low indicator is on. Is there a vacuum valve somewhere...
