Screeching is definitely the belt slipping on pulley tighten tension a little and rub bar soap onit to quiet, best to replace wiwith a cogged belt, also realize that A/C compressor clutch (on pulley) or assembly may be near failure creating more drag on it...

My 2006 kia sorento is making a lound ticking sound when it warms up. What is wrong?


Does it tick with just the ignition on but engine not running? if yes its a relay or solenoid trying to kick in. if only with engine running and its a deisel could be the injector relays. identify where the sound is coming from. if petrol could be the pump. you need to identify where the noise is coming from for a better diagnoses.

My 2003 Kia Sorento squeals really loudly and for several seconds when I start it the first time every day, and also squeals when I turn the AC on. Just wondering what the problem is.


Sounds like you have either a loose, worn or streched fan/serpentine belt. The lost likely reason you don't hear it all the time is the fact that there is not as much of a pull on it. When you first start the car your alternator will demand more out of it and the same goes for your air conditioner compressor when you turn it on. I would check the belt to see if it has any cracks or if it is loose. I hope this helps you and good luck.

2005 KIA SORENTO EX STALLS OUT.


Sounds like a vacuum leak. A lot of the stuff under your hood runs off of vacuum that your motor provides. Your brakes are no different. Your motor probably has enough vacuum to run fine but when you hit the brakes its just too much. I wouldn't push my luck. A car with a habit like that could make an accident real quick.

LOUD BUZZING SOUND FROM MY REAR DOORS WHEN LOCKING ANY SUGGESTIONS? 2005 KIA SORENTO


the lock or mechanisim is stiff, get some wd40 and spray all around the lock and around the mechanism dont be shy with it.

If the problem persists then the motor for the central locking is about to go, this will need to be replaced as they rarely are fixable.

Hope this helps

2006 kia sorento makes a squealing sound under


It is either the tesnioner or the belt....easy way to find out is to spray the pulley that has no grooves....that's the tensioner. Spray it with WD-40 or equivalent, in the middle of the pulley. That is the bearing housing. Spray only that first. Start the motor...if it goes away, then you have found your problem. Try not to spray the belt.

If it still squeals, spray the belt with the engine running. If it squeals, replace the belt.

Has anything been done to the motor recenlty? If so, one of the pulleys may be a little off-centered.

Let me know what you find.

2005 Kia Sorento gurgling noise behind dash


Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.
