Question about Kia Sorento

1 Answer

I have a 2008 kia sorento 4X4 lx I am experiencing a problem with the limp home valve activating. I understand the purpose of the lhv but the engine is not over heating. It happens on hot humid days and I hear it could be one of the modules.

Limp mode is a setting in the TCM that is engaged when a fault is detected - it's role is to allow the transmission to keep working long enough for you to reach a service shop to fix the fault.
What is the fault can only be found by inspecting the transmission, starting with reading the error codes. This is what you should do ASAP. Longer you wait, bigger the damage, more expensive it will be to fix.

    Bad wiring - the valve is activated randomly by the TCM who can't detect it. Fix the wiring and the problem should go away.

I had a hard time finding it on my 2003 3.5L. You have to drop the plastic pan under the engine to get to it. On the 3.5L it is located at the left front corner the engine directly above the front axle frame.
