Question about 2005 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

The car just suddenly cut out and wouldnt start, the engine turned over ok which proved the battery was ok. I called the RAC who pumped the manual fuel button near the filter in the engine compartment and when the pressure built up the engine fired up.The vehicle is diesel and it had approx 4 gallons in when this happened, any ideas ?

The dreaded kia ,fit a non return valve in the fuel supply in and one in the return and i think this will cure it as this is not the first to give this sort of trouble ,when a customer had this problem the dealer wanted a fortune to change the fuel pump ,the diesel specialist garage wanted 600 euros to overhaul the pump and one of the mechanics said to fit the non return valves as this was what was playing up so i did and never had a problem since.

98suzuki vitara had RAC out not started no spark turns over ok his computer Starts 2001so he did not find cause, said could be eMobilesir had no idea

you posted 4 times,
1: no country stated, USA we are, for a fact
others country VITATA ,are not like ours, at all, (by laws)
2; no engine stated (G16, J20, H25 or bigger v6)
3: no full symptoms (1 spark plug dead)
IF ALL SPARKS dead is different cause than 1.
on all engines made, petrol
4: we know its petrol. (ours is gas) LOL
5: lacking all these facts we must guess wildly and use generic OTTO Cycle engines answer.

OTTO 101:
cranks but don't start
engine bad. (if cam belt old, bingo if has one)
spark dead. 1 or 4 or 6 dead sparks?
fuel gone missing or flooding.

there are over 50 causes to kill a petrol engine.
and about 1- 10 tests.(using tools.
do you want the wild guessing guys to guess?, or tell you how to test.? your call and not stated.

Probably gas or spark related. Check for spark on a spark plug wire, or on a couple of plug wires would be better. If you have a strong blue spark, then the coils are good, ignition is good, and you will need to see if gas is getting up to the engine. Do you hear the fuel pump come on?

Ok ma car ran hot cut off and wouldnt start back up i let it cool down then i tried again and it wouldnt start back up so i went to the radiator and took off thee capsal and the stuff in there look oaily...

You have oil mixing with water which means your water pump is gone bad.

Please call an expert from a garage to come fix it for you and dont try starting it again so as not to knock the engine.

Be careful.

you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.

My 97 Chevy blazer has a Immobilizer ; doesn't start.

I agree with gasitjr.
I own a 98 blazer. When you try to turn over the engine. Does the engine rotate? If yes,it's not the starter or the battery. When you turn the key into the ON position before it starts can you hear an electric motor noise winding up? If yes , the fuel pump maybe OK but if the pump pressure is bad...blazer wont start. Pump runs about 300 plus labor. I've done it..It sucks
