I've dealt with this vapor-lock issue in multiple ways. One was to put an aspirin in the thermostat to hold it open. When disolved it would work properly. But want it open for a bit so that coolant can flow.
The other was to squeeze the radiator hoses to push coolant and work air into radiator so it could come to top of radiator. Another is to simply run it till warms up, shut it down and ad coolant to the reservoir.

Yes be careful with the caliper pistons, make sure they do not fall out.
You must push them back into the cylinders in order to put new pads in.
Thats now out of the way, Just be sure to lube up the sliding pins on the calipers. if you are replacing rotors be careful of the brake lines when you remove the caliper and to hang the caliper with a wire hanger or caliper hanger if you have one to not stress the brake lines

I don't currently have access to step by step instructions for your Kia Sorento, but I would imagine that it takes a standard tool ratcheting tool set to unscrew the bolts for the shroud, and lift any fans out of the way. Then, the radiator hold down hardware can be removed and the radiator should be disconnected fromt he cooling system (via the hoses) and then you can pull it out. It does not weigh much.
Installation is the reverse of the removal.

For those of you who may google this link and are looking for an solution, my local repair shop isolated my 2005 Amanti problem to a $2.78 plastic clip on the temperature blend door actuator rod linkage. It simply fatigued and eventually broke resulting in the actuator rod falling off the actuator door lever. The labor to isolate the problem and to replace the clip did amount to almost $170. Hope this helps those of you in the future.
