<DIV =msg>Hi,


I am hoping someone here can help. My Aunty purchased a 2005 Kia Sorento 2.5 diesel automatic from Kia in Maidstone 1 year ago. In that time she has covered just 6,000 miles. She was driving a couple of weeks ago and suddenly black smoke and grinding halt. It appears the turbo has sucked all the engine oil out and seized the engine solid. Kia Maidstone have washed their hands of it saying these things happen.





ANyone got any advice on how to deal with the dealer or know where she can purchase a second hand engine????

Viking Paul..would be best to reply to this..He is a Kia Dealership and could advise accordingly...then you have the consumer people..but not sure on your law as i am in Ireland
Firstly did you have a warranty when you bought this.....

They can give this trouble, is the engine siezed.

If you buy a second hand engine it may not come with turbo/injectors etc..be carefull...

I saw a few on ebay last week
