If you ran it out of oil You may have major repairs. first do a dry compression test and record reading. Then add 5 mls of oil to each cylinder and repeat test, record readings, if the first readings were low and second readings high the rings may be damaged. you could try and start the engine to see if it runs ok now that the oil has raised the compression. there is no reset button.

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

03 kia sorento Engine knocking after replacing water pump oil pump and timing belt

Who did the work? take it back. If it's DIY double check your work. Knoking as in metalic engine , or knocking as in gas preignition. If gas preignition, timing belt is off a few notches. If it's similar to this google: 2003 kia sorento interference engine
You may have valve timing off so much that your pistons are running into the valves. Bad news!

I have a 2003 KIA Sorento 2.5 CRDI,cranks but does not start.

You may need a fuel pump. Please remove and check the fuel filter for metal and debris (could be clogged?) If there is metal filings found inside the filter. That is an indication of a fuel pump failure. I hope that helps, good luck.

My Kia 2003 sorento model won't start fuel pump is working correctly and all electrical lines are working correctly the crankshaft censor was changed and enough spark is at the sparkplugs and still it...

To reset any car's ECU (not cpu) disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery for at least 15 minutes. Also if its not attempting to at least turn over, check your neutral saftey switch

Vehicle bogs down when accelerating at low speeds

I would replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. Replace them ONE AT A TIME!! Do NOT mix up the firing order of the wires!! When you pull each plug look at it and see if it oil fouled. Some Kia's have an issue with leaking valve cover gaskets that can cause excessive amounts of oil to collect around one or more of the plugs which fouls them out and causes misfires. If this is the case, the only solution is to replace the gasket and the plugs. Please rate me on this answer.
