SOURCE: I am changing the spark plugs on my 2004 Kia sorento

Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

SOURCE: 2003 kia sorento: sunroof stuck

remove the sun roof motor drive and close the sunroof manually, then reinstall motor, which by the way is the most likely part to cause this.

SOURCE: how many quarts of oil does a v6 2006 kia sorento

Hello Pauline.
Your Sorento takes 4.6 quarts if you also change the oil filter (which you should have as well).
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I can't remove the rotors from my 2005 kia

Changing the brake pads can be done without removing the calipers. However to take off the rotor, the calipers needs to be out. The 2 Phillips screws are to hold it in the place, but to access the rotor, it has to be through the calipers. Good luck.

Rear brakes on 2011 kia sorento


You will likely find there are two bolts holding the calipers on the 2011 Kia Sorento. You can check this by parking your Sorento, setting the parking brake to be sure it won't roll and carefully lifting and removing one of the rear wheels, just like you are removing a flat.

When you remove the wheel, you should find that the brake caliper carrier is accessible on the rear top of the wheel assembly. Simply reach around and carefully feel the carrier assembly and you should feel a couple of bolt heads because two bolts are generally used to hold down Kia rear calipers.

My kia sorento second row seat will not lift back up


I'm having the same issue with my 2013 Sorento LX....I haven't even put 300 miles on it.
I had to go to the dealership and at the dealer the seat was stuck in the folded position and I could not get it to release. The head mechanic after a few minutes got it.. Was told the had to adjust the release cable.
Now two days later and I'm having the same issue again.

How do I replace the radiator in my 2004 kia


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.

Himself has tried to replace the battery on the 03 frelander. managed to get the top bit holding the battery off but the bolt holding th batery into the clip won't undo - just spins around any ideas?!


If you are talking about the battery clamp bolts turning, then put a screwdriver in the split of the clamp and try to put turning pressure on the screwdriver and at the same time undo the nut of the clamp bolt. Or if you have a pair of mole grips, clamp the bolt head and undo the nut. Worst case , pry the clamp off the terminal and use a hacksaw and cut the bolt in half and remove it , fit a new bolt after. Hope that helps

Can't find where the spark plugs are located


The 2003 Kia Sorento with 3.5L V6 has the spark plugs located under black plastic covers in the center channel of each cylinder head. Several brackets, cables, and hoses must be moved out of the way to access them. The manufold air intake tube needs to be removed on the right bank.
The left cylinder bank has coil-on-plug assemblies while the right bank has more conventional spark plug caps with sealing assemblies to keep dirt/moisture out of the spark plug wells. The coil-packs are held with two 10mm bolts each and are difficult to get to. Use universal-joint sockets and an extension.

Takes about  2.5 hours to R/R spark plugs. The average do it yourself'er will take longer (usually). All electrical plugs are color-coded and/or indexed so it's pretty difficult to screw it up. The cruise control actuator cable is in the way on the left bank. Twisting the cable elbow upright releases it from the actuator allowing it to be bent sideways to gain clearance. 

Good luck and hope this helps.
