You need to test compression and also do a cylinder leak down test. About the only reason you would have a dipstick purgulating is bad rings or a clogged PCV valve. The PCV is what vents the gases that blow by the rings into the crankcase.

Hard to start hot engine 3.5 l KIA sorento 04 after several mile


Hi, There are a lot of components that help to make the engine run. Most of them are computer controlled. I would have your mechanic check it out with a scan tool. (code scanner).
If one sensor is bad it can change a lot of things on how the car runs. Good luck.

I have KIA sorento 2.5 diesel 2009 model and it was overhaul engine and now the the oil lump keeps on flicking when reducing speed or idling after getting warm, What could be the problem


Remove the oil sender unit, fit a oil pressure gauge , start the engine and read the oil pressure at idle engine hot, must read above 10 psi and needle not flicking, must increase with engine speed , if pressure is ok replace censer, if not check oil pump screen and relief vale spring, can also be caused by crankshaft bearings clearance .

I'm driving Kia sorento 2010,there's a sizzling


Depends.
The exhaust is very hot, especially when you stop the engine.
You could be hearing the metal cooling off, or you could be hearing something dripping on the hot pipe. Or melting onto the pipe.

Just changed oil in kia sorento 06 manuel transmission oil light stays on and clatters


Hi there,

DANGER....this is telling you there is NOT enough oil pressure. The clatter you hear means inadequate oil is reaching the cams or lifters.

Can you confirm you have used the correct grade & viscosity of oil? Is oil leaking?

Please re-check the oil level again - allow vehicle to sit for 5mins, then check oil level on the ENGINE dipstick. If dipstick level is up to the full mark, then assume you have enough oil and let the engine idle for 5mins.

If the clatter remains, then suspect a problem with the oil pump, or oil filter causing a blockage.


Cheers,

Hi, my 04 sorento spraying oil from oil level meter pipe then engine is hot, did this is normal, thanks


No, it's not normal. You are getting a high internal engine pressure from a bad valve guild or piston rings. The other thing that would cause this would be a bad PVC valve that is clogged up.

Start with the simple and replace the PVC valve and make sure the vacuum line is not kinked which would cause a restriction. Also make sure you have the right amount of engine oil in your engine.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Water leaking - Kia Sorento 2.5 Diesel


There is a small black rubber pipe that is directly connected to the airconditioning system, which is usually placed on the passenger side of the vehicle. This normally leaks water when your A/C is switched off after a drive, or while it is in operation during a hot day.

If you identify this pipe as the one I have described above, there is no need to worry about the water leak.

Hope this helps.

2004 KIA Sorento, heater problems


Hi. I just had the same problem after I took my 05 sorento in for service. I called the shop back and they told me the system had to be burped after the coolant level gets low( they neglected to refill my system at the dealership also). To do this you must fill the coolant tank to the proper level, park the vehicle on an incline(with the front of the vehicle being highest), and allow vehicle to heat up with the heat on. it worked for my 05.
