It is located under the skid plate under the engine. there are two screws in the front under the radiator, two on the side, and two under the transmission. Once you take the plate off you will see the oil pan and plug

I have a 2003 KIA Sorento 2.5 CRDI,cranks but does not start.


You may need a fuel pump. Please remove and check the fuel filter for metal and debris (could be clogged?) If there is metal filings found inside the filter. That is an indication of a fuel pump failure. I hope that helps, good luck.

That is a VERY easy radiator.
Loosen radiator drain plug and drain coolant from radiator.

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

Ouszen

Where is the engine oil drain plug? fill in too much oil. what happen? Kia Sorento 2003 petrol.


The plug is on the bottom of the engine, in the oil pan. Usually a 15 mm wrench will take it off. Over filling can cause it to smoke and other problems over time. If your a quart or two over , yes you need to drain it. If it is about an 1/8" or less over on the dipstick, I wouldn't worry about it

Unable to locate radiator drain plug on KIA Sorento 2003 Thank you for your assistance


It is on the side of the bottom of the radiator, but I found it easier to just remove the lower radiator hose and let it just drain faster that way. Keep a large container nearby to catch the coolant.

Vehicle bogs down when accelerating at low speeds


I would replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. Replace them ONE AT A TIME!! Do NOT mix up the firing order of the wires!! When you pull each plug look at it and see if it oil fouled. Some Kia's have an issue with leaking valve cover gaskets that can cause excessive amounts of oil to collect around one or more of the plugs which fouls them out and causes misfires. If this is the case, the only solution is to replace the gasket and the plugs. Please rate me on this answer.
