Hi, I am having same problem withmy kia Sept 2004 XS model. It has now gone back into the garage having been in once to have the diesel filter changed. Kia have told me there is a pressure problem and they have had to contact Kia about it - we are going away soon and tow a caravan so I don`t want it happening then! will let you know how I get on. Otherwise am very happy with car. Hendy

Hi Thanks everyone for your replies.
It's finally Sorted, a little costly but it's now the car I thought I'd bought. The problem was down to a worn seal on the fuel pump allowing oil to get in to it. I had that repaired and it's been fine ever since. Smile

Hi Roger, I had taken my car back to the garage but after three days in there and still no answers they told me they wanted to check the fuel tank and that would cost me £400 so I have fetched it and am going to have a go at checking the fuel sender unit myself. They said they had followed Kia`s instructions on procedures to follow but hadn`t even looked at the sender unit - they didn`t even want to consider that but wanted to check the fuel tank due to possibility of lining peeling. Anyway, I will have a look myself and see how I get on and what happens. Wish me luck! We are away soon towing the caravan so I want to get it sorted. Hendy

Hi,

I notice you are in Newbury so local to basingstoke can you advise which Garage assisted you with the problem! KIA in Basingstoke are as much use as a choclate fire guard! I have encoutered similar problems to those descrived in this thread HOWEVER mine has only done it during the 24/48hours after towing its then fine for weeks at a time Confused

Many Thanks
Clair

Clair and Members...This is prob the correct fix; ECU...HA HA..I doubt it guys
 
Fuel Tank Filter

There is no "filter" as such in the fuel tank but what there is is a gauze mesh over the pick up on the lift pump. Sometimes, particularly it would seem on the early Sorento models, this gets clogged with a grey coloured material which seems to appear in the tank. This can restrict the amount of fuel going to the engine and give the dreaded cut out under acceleration and in some cases a low fuel pressure code being stored and the Engine Management Light on the dash coming on. Definitely worth checking out if any of these things happen to your Sorento.

Some basic Instructions and a few pictures on how to check:

When the rear O/S seat is lifted there is a small piece of carpet which when lifted up gives you an access panel to the fuel tank. If you unscrew the 4 screws this is what you see. 8-)

If you then unclip the diesel lift and return pipes and disconnect the electrical plug, then unscrew the 6 screws and gently lift out the fuel pickup unit this is what you get. Do this when you have very little diesel in the tank and make sure to keep a towel or cloth across the carpet to protect any damage from dripping as you lift the unit out of the car :o

[image]


And then when all this is done this is what it looks like. The float which gives the fuel guage reading is the black plastic bit at the front of the cylinder. The unit can be taken apart by unfastening the plastic clips on it and the gauze filter and pipes then cleaned in a bowl of parrafin, petrol or similar. ;D

As they say in all the good Japanese guides refitting is a reversal of removal!
