Question about 2005 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

Sorento diesel has lost power at low revs. It is a 2005 with 99000kms. When cold the engine starts and then cuts. This normally happens twice and then runs with low power. The car accelerates very slowly until the turbo kicks in. It is a automatic. It has been at the Kia dealer for 2 weeks unable to find the problem. It has new injectors and the same problem, I can now also hear a wyn from the turbo after about 2200 rpm as the power kicks in. Any advise will be appriciated. Thanks James

High rev at cold (winter cold!) idle


Your toyota technician should know what a "cold starting solenoid" is. It is the little thing that works your throttle until the motor warms up and something else takes over. I'd suggest going to another technician.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

U may find that the negative battery cable has worn and it needs replacing. Check from battery down to the car cassie. That happened to me on my Nissan.
