Question about 2005 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

We have a 2005 kia carnival 5sp manual which we bought new, we have had many probs with it, new gear linkages, rear suspension, plastic trim replaced in the last 3 years and the rear heated just died and now the big prob is when the car idles it shakes and when you put it gear the car clunks and shudders when you let the clutch out and if you put it in reverse it is worse.. the car has 88,000ks on it.. we have had enough of it what is the prob?

Sound probably i timing fault, do you have an engine warning light on. as it could be something else but if no light on it could bet the timing belt/chain. would not keep driving if the belt is gone as it will damage the engine. if light is on then you can use a ecu reader to find the faults.

SOURCE: my 1993 Olds 88 wont start cranks but wont kick over. Fuel prob

3.8 are known for ignition trouble but first use the fuel release valve located on top of engine under a screw cap to see if your getting fuel. It takes 4 things to make engine run fuel spark air and compression. But most likely the Ign control module or crank sensor. So try this
1) check the fuel pressure
2) check for spark
3) compression test

it is build in to fuel pump motor, you have to take off the pump to replce it. To access the pump you have to take off the middle seat then you can see a cover on floor carpet then take it off to access the pump.

SOURCE: having trouble with my kia carnival over heating,

my kia carnival 2002 keeps less heating when the car is in slow speed & when it is fast at 100 KM/H the RPM comes down, there is gear oil at Max & engine oil at max and water is getting low. with this i replaced thermostat, have had radiator pressure tested and was fine, radiator water is full but coolant box is getting empty whilst driving the distance of 100 kms. also when it begins to little overheat or just taking off the speed there is a loud ascending rattling noise which seems to come from the under right side of engine But when it catches the speed everything is smooth. & then you park for an hour the coolant tank is empty.or at low. please tell me what to do.

My rear windshield wiper stopped working on my 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. I can hear the motor working but when we replace the motor it still wont work.

My 2005 tahoe did the same thing. I also bought a new motor, which did not fix. I discovered there was a bad ground. Instead of searching for bad ground, just install a short length of stranded wire with crimp terminals between a wiper motor mounting bolt and a rear glass latch assy mounting bolt to restore good grounding to the wiper motor.
