Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Hi, Just bought this Sorento 2.5 CRDI from someone with 131000kms. The engine was rebuilt by an engineering company and ever since the car has no power and the car starts easy in the morning but wont rev up for at least 2 to 3 minutes. Took the car to Kia Dealership and had it on the diagnostics but nothing shows up as problems

could be you have a few bad glow plugs or a relay for them or a bad glow plug controler. the glow plugs are basicly a direct short that creates heat that warms the air in the cylinder to aid initial start.they can be checked wiyh an ohm meter. remove the wire and place one lead on the wire connecter of the plug the other to a good ground.you should have good connectivity. if not replace the plug

check fuel pressure with engine off but key on, sounds like a possable problem with the pressure regulator, or maybe a weak fuel pump or bad fuel filter

believe me..i had this problem before with my sorento 06. send to garage many time but the problem kept coming after 2 weeks.. but i found my self that whenever ESC light is on ,engine became sluggish. what will you do is to use a cruise control until you reach home. after that..at front passenger side, next to door, open the side cover,,you will see a bunch of cable inside..with your engine on and press the pedal lightly..pull that cables with your hand...and you will found your engine revs.
