Question about 2005 Kia Sorento
In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.
You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.

Lift the panel in the trunk, there should be a rod to crank your spare tire down. You have an opening on the left bottom of the back hatch. Insert the rod in this opening and use the lug wrench for your jack. Just crank this counter clock wise and the tire should begin to come down. Once it is all the way down, you have to take the center piece and turn it sideways in order to get the tire off.

Testimonial: "Thanks, After not finding it under the engine and saw the engine cover I assumed it would be a paper roll filter."
SOURCE: how many quarts of transmission
Follow the owners manual!! Im unsure cause i dont know the size motoror what kind of tranny you have!! If you dont not have the owners manual then i would call your local Auto Zone and ask them! If they play stupid then call the dealership and ask for service!! I promise they wont take you out back and shoot you!! I have to call them all the time for questions!!

Check your any fuse related to your heat/cooling first before assuming other else. If fuse are ok, then your blower motor resistor relay is damaged, and needs replacement... You can located this item by taking out your passenger compartment unit glove out. There is a black relay that is connect on top your the fan blower, take this out and replace iwth a new one... Cost should be about anywhere between 80 to 120+. It costed me 97.00 at autozone. Took 2 days to order.
