I would suggest to change the cat convertor and move on.This will solve your problem and most likely check engine will go a way.Your code is P0431 is related to bad cat not sensor.Over time the cat will store too much carbons and will make it stop from firing up.Bank 1 cat is the driver side and bank 2 is th cat by the passenger side.You can get remanufacture cat at low price and around the $250 rather than by it from the dealer will cost you arm and leg around $800.I hope this will give anyone a good feedback.Mojeer

Hi
P0431 :- (warm up catalytic converter bank 2 - efficiency below threshold )
test the catalytic converter it locate in exhaust gas pipe
test the heated oxygen sensor in exhaust gas pipe too near the engine
P0446 :- (evaporative emission (EVAP) system , vent control , circuit malfunction )
test wiring , EVAP canister purge valve , ECM engine control module
just ask for more abut DTC

Why is my 2003 kia sorentos check engine light on constantly and the diagnostic shows misfire code?


You answered your question.
The light is on because the computer detected a problem, which is noted by the trouble code.
You would need the diagnostic chart for that code to find the actual problem.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

2003 Kia Sorento check engine light is on and the 4 wheel drive lights are on. Do you have any information?


hello. When your check engine light is on it indicates that your car's computer has stored one or more error codes for you to see. If you have an AAMCO Transmission shop in the area they will scan your car's computer for free and tell you what is going on. Same true for the 4 wheel drive light. This is the important first step to solving your issues. Joe

if the air filter was recently inspected or changed, look for the vacuum hose to be disconnected from the valve located on the air filter cover. another source may be the gas cap either loose or with the tether strap caught under it preventing a proper seal
