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.

I have a 2005 Sorento 3.5 changed out valve cover gaskets and tuned up since I've done this all it does is crank over tries to start but will not start I tore back down to make sure I did not have the plug...


recheck the timing marks if the belt has been changed, the fuel gauge is connected in to the fuel line with a T piece connector, check the pressure and flow, if the flow is low replace the fuel filter , if the pressure is low check the relief value, if ok replace the pump.

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.
