Question about 2004 Kia Sorento

1 Answer

My 04 Kia Sorento has two faults, the throttle position sensor and the automatic transmission temp. sensor running together. This causes the automatic transmission to run through the gears and be in 5th by about 70kms/hr with no acceleration. I see this seems to be a fault with this model. What should I do? Replace both or just replace the throttle sensor first and see what happens? Thanks.

Well if it has a 'service bullitin' then the manafacturar would know--hook it up to a tech ll which runs a data stream for solution cause it can get complicated--trans may need to be reprogramed or a module is bad etc

no
if the filter or fuel system was faulty , it would not restart immediately
I would be checking items like the crank position /cam position sensors
immobilizer system

try running the fault codes to see if anything else like the dti sensor module has loose connections or is faulty

Have a 2004 kia sorento. have a transaxel fault and a TPS SIGNAL MALFUNTION FROM ECM TO TCM. WHAT IS THIS


Your transaxle is the transmission. The TPS is the throttle position sensor. ECM is the is the engine's computer. The TCM is the transmission computer. So, the throttle position sensor is not reporting to either and needs to be replaced. They seem to be about $180 for the part.

My Kia Sorento won't gear down and accelerate when I floor it. Dealer says it's a sensor in the transmission and they need to drop the transmission ($400 labor) to replace the sensor. I have a feeling that...


TPS of Throttle Position Sensor needed adjusting and is the problem and not the gearbox.

This usually happens when the engine light comes on and the TPS is adjusted but most dealers forget (or maybe intentionally) to reset the gearbox P/TRN Fuse.

Whenever the engine light comes on the gearbox is set to run in Sick Slow mode which is why you have this problem.

Before doing anything, try pulling the P/TRN fuse for 5 mins and put it back. Then try the car.

Hope it works, i did for me.
