    I have the same problem and it's intermittent has no odor, but I don't use starter fluid. All lights on the dash will flash and every drop electrical goes dead. it starts with the battery and emergency brake light flashing, then stayign on then boom, dah goes copletly out and of course with no power the fuel pump stops working

This is almost for sure the fuel relay. I do not know where it is on your car but I would look for it to be by one of the back wheels where road junk can get to it and corrode it. Once found not very expensive and very easy to replace.

I have a 03's sorento and this is quite a common promblem with these cars. First there has been a recall for these cars, if you havn't got it done, get it done, It's free of charge. The recall is the Camshaft Position Sensor. It will cause the car to run unstable, break and engine stall and causes accident and the engine light will come on. Secondly I had the same promblem that you were having, engine was shaking and sputtering and check engine light came on. What I found out is it is the EVAP Emission control system leak large bank 1 & bank 2 system too lean sensor problem. Had to take it to the shop to get the mass sensor replaced. It was a $900.oo + job, I recommend you taking it to the shop to get it diagnos to see what code it is giving you so you would know what exactly you are dealing with.

Kia Sorento fuel gauge prob.


What I do is go by miles per gallon and fill the tank when I've driven enough for it to drop. As long as the odometer works it's all good. You can fix it if you want to go to the trouble. It's either a bad card in the tank module or a resistor fell off in the instrument panel.
Panels can be refluxed just like motherboards by tossing it in the oven for a few seconds. Tank modules have to be replaced.

I would check the cam and crank position sensor, these are definitely the symptoms of a bad crank sensor.
