#15 of 21 check engine light/knocking noise
Aug 06, 2008 (1:07 pm)
Once again, I have my Kia in for service. 2005 kia sorento. Yes it has 106,000 miles but all highway but of course no longer under warranty. My check engine light came on yest. Also, hear a knocking noise which worsens when accelarate. Kinda lose some power as well. Brought in for diagnostics which stated code 134 for o2 sensor and 305 for cylinder number 5 misfire. However, this place wont touch kia motors and refered me to dealers. Well if any of you dealt with dealers u know its a waste of time and a lot of money. However needs fixed. Would these codes relate to noise I am hearing?? I feel its probably a separate prob. (possibly a belt) however I know nothing about cars (but seem to know more than kia mechanics).

O2 sensor is an easy replacement if you are somewhat good with tools.....I didnt have the time or tools to do it when mine went out on my 03 sorie (109K miles) ....$175 at the dealer to replace..as for the misfire.....try changing the plug and wire out first.....but of course it isnt easy getting to the plugs on the sorie either...
and yes..beleive at least the misfire will contribute to the noise....the 02 sensor would just impact MPG a little....
if it is a belt....you should be able to test the tension to see if they are ok...but I doubt its the belt..creating a "knocking" sound....

Just an update: Had 2005 K. sorento in shop for ICV recall. Found out only because engine light came on and problems accelerated on highway as well as hearing knocking noise. Very long story short and week later without car, found out some parts were sucked into engine. So now dealor calling a Kia rep to find out if they will replace WHOLE motor and if under warranty. Remind you car only 3 yrs old. If under warranty, would new timing belt and serp belts be under warranty as well. These need replaced also and wondering if I need to fight for coverage. thanks to all for your assistance in the past, now and future problems.
#18 of 21 2005 Sorento - noises
Feb 12, 2010 (2:07 pm)
My wife drives a 2005 Sorento and about a week ago she heard noises when accelerating. The noises appear to be coming from the driveshaft, but it has been put up on ramps twice and no-one has been able to find a problem. At first it sounded like a bad catalytic converter,but that is fine. Sometimes the noise disappears, but then re-appears when accelerating. Any ideas?

have you had the differentials checked.....is it an AWD model....sounds remarkably like my problem in an 03, turned out to be a bad front differential....
#20 of 21 The Noise I hate the most? The sound of running water like downspout....
Apr 11, 2011 (8:33 pm)
The most annoying sound that can't be "fixed" is when it rains (which happens alot out here in Oregon & Washington!!!!!! When it rains......the roof drains all seem to go out the right front windshield area. The dealer acknowledged that there is extraordianary noise but it is just a design issue. Sad as I find it a pain to be driving along with a "down spout"...drip, drip.....drip.
#21 of 21 Kia Sorento 2012 noise while accelerating
May 06, 2013 (1:22 am)
hi, i bought my kia sorento 2012 (manual Transmission) a year ago and haven't had any problems until rats ate some of the wires in the bonnet and i was having hard time to start the engine. I got it fixed but now there is this weird noise that comes everytime i change the transmission and accelerate. however the noise doesn't remain as i gain speed. I took it to the dealer (they aren't so good) and they said that it's normal for a turbo engine to give such noise. Please suggest me what to do?
