Question about 2011 Kia Sorento
Remove any items that may hinder you from looking at the drive belt and all pulleys that hooked up to it. The tensioner pulley is different from other pulleys as it has no grooves on it. It looked just like a roller with flat outer surface. It pushes on the flat side of the belt (compared to the grooved side -as other pulleys did). It is spring loaded and can be de-tensioned by moving it in the reverse direction of its push. If you are looking the TIMING BELT tensioner, then more things have to come off the engine before you could get to it.

theer is a large flexiable hose on the engine, one end goes to the engine and the other comes from the plastic air box, inside that airbox is the air filter.

I have the same problem with my 2011 Kia Sorento. I have been googling it and I think it may be a bad brake sensor switch. Going to take it to the dealership on Monday. I had my battery tested (which I had replaced about 3 weeks ago) and it was fine. I found a video online that shows how to bypass the brake sensor . Push the start button once and then again and hold it the second time for about 15 seconds until it starts. Mine started right up

If it's an overhead cam, which I think it is, then it should be toward the very front of the engine, likely within the timing case. There should be some wires coming from it. It's usually a small black sensor.
