What I do is go by miles per gallon and fill the tank when I've driven enough for it to drop. As long as the odometer works it's all good. You can fix it if you want to go to the trouble. It's either a bad card in the tank module or a resistor fell off in the instrument panel.
Panels can be refluxed just like motherboards by tossing it in the oven for a few seconds. Tank modules have to be replaced.

SOURCE: "04"sorento fuel or not?

replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.

P0355....Ignition Coil E Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction would suggest you need to replace your coil packs. Heat damages them after time and will eventually lead to misfire and very rough running motor especially when it's damp out.

P0700....Transmission Control System Malfunction

I would start researching the possibility of a bad ground, a loose main cable to the battery, etc. If the codes come back, the P0700 can be very serious and could require attention at a Transmission shop or dealership. There is a remote possibility that the codes are entirely unrelated.

Fuel pressure should be within specs-it is pretty high for multi-port injection, about 50 psi, but Kia would have specs. If you have no spark, need to diagnose the ignition system-plug wires, coils, ignition control modules, crank sensor, ecu...

My 2004 kia sorento 2.5 diesolhas plenty of fuel turnd over but will not start


When you say plenty of fuel...where is this plenty of fuel?
remember Diesel engines fire from the heat of compression - not spark. Also, fuel may be getting to injector pump but pump may not be working correctly.
