    there were (are) many, crank bolts, pass air bag, intake plenum, brake light switch. Your best bet is to call your local Kia dealer, give them you VIN number and they can tell you what recalls are "open".

SOURCE: remove factory radio

This is one that you can stare at all day. the trim pieces that include the air vents (usually woodgrain) will come off and expose the screws that hold the radio in. They are held in by spring clips, a gentle pry will get you started. Here is a website that shows how to remove one for a cell phone mount: You may have to take the climate controll screws out to get the radio out far enough to reach the plugs on the back. You should be able to figure out the rest. good luck, and be gentle.. the trim is getting cheaper and cheaper, and is really easy to break.

My 2008 Kia Sorento automatic won't always change up the gears it just revs high and won't change gear till I take my foot of the accelerator pedal then it will change gear

Sounds like a kick down cable is out of adjustment. It could also be the transmission shift control solenoid. You may want to call Kia to see if your transmission is one that was recalled and needs to have the software updated. Kia has had issues with 2005 up Sorentos and hard shifting issues. It may a simple software update to your car to fix it. Repair bulliten says somewhere around 377,000 cars were affected. Would be a free fix. Hope this helps

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Is there a recall for the crank shaft for the Kia Sorento 2003?

There is a problem with the bolt that holds the Harmonic Balancer on the crank shaft and Kia will have to replace it. Be forewarned it may have to be done more than once so if it happens to it a second time stick to your guns and make them cover it. The bolt will shear off and the balancer will freewheel if you are lucky if you are not luck then a host of other problems can occur from crankshaft damage to a damaged fan shroud and radiator if it works it's way completely off but most likely it will just spin or damage the crank shaft. This should not be a DYI because if you do it and it comes off again you have no recourse if they know you have already done the work so this would be a silence is golden time. This affects several year models of the 3.5. You can find the service letter on the internet I had it but it's not that hard to find . You have to remember there is a difference between a RECALL and a SERVICE LETTER. The Recall will be sent out to all the owners the service letter is only for the dealership shop so unless you happen to have the vehicle in there for something else they may or may not mention it. A good Service Writer will catch it and suggest it done and you would be well advised to have it done because it will fail at any time and leave you stranded. Believe me there are lot of Service letters out on almost every vehicle it is the way the Car makers say oops we have a problem shops let's try to fix it before it becomes lawsuit material and they are backed into a corner where the problem is life threatening and they are forced to issue an official recall which will cost them a lot of money and bad publicity. Hope this answers your question as I tend to be long winded but knowledge is power when dealing with Dealerships.

Sending unit may be faulty. You can test it with a voltmeter or ohmmeter. You can try testing the connections before wires enter tank.
