Customer Question

I have a 2003 kia sorento that we were not driving for about 9 months. When I started it up, it runs ok but idles around 500 to 1000 rpm. When I put it in reverse, there is a loud knocking noise and cuts off. It does not do that in park. What can be the most likely problem.

Possibly a torque converter failure , what happens in forward gears? did you put the special oil in the transmission from KIA?
