Hi wondering if anyone could please help,ok I have a kia sorento 06 plate went to visit a relative yesterday which is a 60 mile trip after 10 miles car completely cut out whilst I was doing 70-pulked over waited only about a minute or so & it fired up straight away another 20 miles down the road same thing cut out completely again it fired up quite easy after a lityle wait then approx another 20 miles again cut out this time took a little longer to start then finally another few miles down the road again it cut out bit this time would mot start. AA guy said it punching out the dreaded 1186 fault code I heve already read up about other peoples problems & iam going to remove the filter out of the tank & check it, just wondeting though why my car ran sweet as a nut inbetween breakdowns, also when got the car to a safe place AA guy put his jump leads on ( I had ran the battery down a bit )it was again fired up straight away, just wondering what else I can check when I go back to pick it up,apparantly the fuel filter is not that old but ad I have only had car 1 week would it be worth fitying new fuel filter just to make sure, any advice would be much appreciated ad yhe car is 60 miles away & I would hate the thought of going through all that again.....cheers

If you check the tank strainer and it is clogged,take pictures of it so they can be seen by Kia dealer.If the tank is replaced FOC the filter should also be changed.If dealer changes tank leave as little possible fuel in as it will only be dumped.
