Hi, Very recent Kia owner and first time user of this site and hoping someone can shed some light on my problem. A few months back I purchased an 03 Kia Sorento XS, it had 70k on the clock, great condition, good starter and a full service history from its 1 previous owner.

Over the last month the car has done this on 3 occasions.

Whilst driving along accelerating through the gears, when I hit 4th it has jumped out of gear and the car dies. When I turn the ignition to start the car it absolutely refuses to fire up. I've had to get a friend to come out and tow me a few feet so I can bump start the car, after which it runs perfectly again, I can even switch the engine off and start it straight back up.

Any ideas?
