It sounds like your throttle positioning sensor is malfunctioning. It is telling the injectors to pump more fuel. Eventually the engine gets too much fuel and basically floods. Like a car floods when starting back in the old days. Too much fuel. Then let it sit and the fuel evaporates and the engine will start again.

Started my 2005 Kia Sorento this morning. It sounded and felt rough than died. Started it again gave it some gas and kept running rough. but RPM's fluxing up and down.


If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Kia Sorento V-6 start-up difficulty


You probably should perform a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel pressure is bleeding off of the fuel rails when the engine is shut off. If it is, you could have a bad fuel pressure regulator or a bad check valve in the fuel pump module (which will require replacement of the module).

One way to test for this condition without any tools is like this:
cycle the key ON, wait about two seconds, then OFF, wait about 2 more seconds, and back ON again. Repeat his 3 or 4 times before turning the key to the CRANK position. If the engine starts immediately every time you do this, then the hard starting is definately caused by the fuel pressure bleeding off.
