Question about 2004 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

'04 Sorento, 110,000 mi., shudders faintly when accelerating from a stop. If I take off slowly, no shudder. I drive with 'Snow' on and less shudder. Also, probably unrelated, about 1 month ago I turn the key and it cranks but no start. Cranked periodically for about 10 min. and it started w/check engine light on. Light was on for a week and went off. Today, 2 weeks later it's back on. Thanks much for any help. JB

Could be a falling cam sensor or O2 sensor, O2 sensors don't like being cold as it takes longer to heat up and ecu reads it as a fault. cam sensor these fail more when they get hot. dirty MAF/MAP sensor can also affect the engine.

SOURCE: "04"sorento fuel or not?

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

SOURCE: 2002 kia rio rxv check engine light came on again..

On my wife's car the mechanic said it was gas cap. (NOT!!) I cleared with an OBD reader and the code suggested a leak in the evatorator system. I found a steel tube that was routed over the weld flange of the gas tank. It went from the front of the car, down the drivers side, over the weld joing of the gas tank and into a charcoal evaporator filter on the passengers side near the rear wheel. The tube crossing over the gas tank crumbled when I touched it. I replaced it with a short piece of reinforced neoprene hose (to cross over the gas tank) and a couple of hose clamps. Cost of parts was about $5.00. Havn't seen Check Engine since. Good luck

SOURCE: just had sparkplugs and wires replaced. Check car still shudder

I was factory trained to work on these cars, the problems i found for this symptom where this, a cracked air intake rubber flex hose, crack is on bottom and opens up when u accelerate, next is a defective MAF, which is a Mass Airflow sensor, neither of these two problems will set a code.

Have someone check your transmission fluid level. Probably low, so the shifting up and down is compromised.

Sounds like the torque converter is chattering and likely will have to be replaced. Have a trans shop verify that. The other problem is a separate question and should be posted that way.

Van shudders when accelerating in high gear, shudder stops when releasing the gas, or shifting to D2. Can also "burn through" the shudder by pressing down and forcing the vehicle to downshift and...


smell the transmission fluid and see if it smells burnt, If so the tranny may need rebuilding.
Check the level while your there. To prolong life of car don't make it do that.

You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.

Have your engine mounts checked. I was experiencing the same type if things, and it turned out all 5 were cracked! (I also have the 1995).
