How do I check if my rocker arms and lifters are bad in my 2004 Kia Sorento

The only type of test you can do is with a feeler gage. There is a spec for clearance and it is called lash.

Kia Sorento 2004 3.5 v6 cranks but won't start even when the sensros have been replaced

Rod is correct...any engine needs fire, fuel, air, and compression..I always start with fire, if you have it then move on to fuel...95% of the time the problem will lay in those two. Once you figure out what it isn't getting, then work on why. Newer cars have a lot of computorized stuff that require specialized equipment and knowledge.

Dome light dosen't work the dioed needs replacing

The diode for the interior dome light is located behind the driver's side kick panel. You have to remove the kick panel or get access to the wires behind the panel. The diode is located in the wrapped wires just to the left of the fuse box area. When you feel around the wrapped wires with your fingers, you will feel a small hard rectangular plastic piece behind the tape wrapping the wires. Carefully cut the tape at the spot and locate the diode. Remove the diode and replace with a new one (about $13-18 at Kia dealer) and test. Retape with electrical tape and replace kick panel and you are done. About a 15 minute job.

Where is my rear washer fluid reservoir

The 6ya staff member assigned to reply to your post was trying to nicely say that you’ll never find the reservoir that you’re looking for because your rear end is so large it would require a 42 man expedition to circumnavigate. Those kinds of costs can become unaffordable for even the most experienced back door man. Sorry :(

04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low

The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!

The vehicle will not crank. it will turn over but

turn the key on (do not start) try and listen to hear if you can hear the fuel pump hum while it builds pressure.

If you can hear it, then you should be getting fuel pressure. You can change your fuel filter if you have low fuel pressure at the fuel rails. They have a test port on them you can check for pressure.

If you have fuel pressure and it is at good pressure of around 75 psi
Then you likely have no spark. This could be a bad crank sensor, or a bad fuse somewhere. Have you checked all your fuses?

There is no kill switch on this car. Do you mean the immobilizer? There are many different immo-systems and you need to be sure of which one before you order keys or try to fix.
