Sorento's equipped with a 3.5L engine may exhibit engine noise or rattle type noise if the anti-rattle clip / throttle screws or two piece bushing become loose and get ingested into the engine assembly. Vehicles that were previously repaired with the improved version part will be excluded from this service campaign

Description
SORENTO ICV REPLACEMENT
This Service Campaign provides information related to replacing the Induction Control Valve Sub Assembly (ICV). Some 2003~2005 MY Sorento's equipped with a 3.5L engine may exhibit engine noise or rattle type noise if the anti-rattle clip / throttle screws or two piece bushing become loose and get ingested into the engine assembly. Vehicles that were previously repaired with the improved version part will be excluded from this service campaign.
To correct this condition, Kia has outlined a service procedure to replace the induction control valve (ICV) with an improved version to prevent possible future engine damage. Changes and improvements were made on the throttle plate shaft bushing and sealing O-rings. Use ONLY the following part number (29222 39800QQK) to service the vehicle under this service campaign.


I wouldn't keep driving it. I would contact your local kia dealer to see if it is warrentable. It does read as a campain which may be a recall and repaired at no charge. The article did not specify either way. Thank you, jim
