Hi there. Thank you for using our service.

Usually, the PCM will cut off injector pulse to two cylinders when it detects a problem with ABS or traction control. This could very well be the case with your Sorento. Have you had the chance to have the vehicle scanned by Kia or a qualified shop that has access to the factory scan tool? Are there any other symptoms, any warning lamps, etc?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No other warning lights except check engine this is mostly a cold symptom seems to do a lot better after it is warmed up.

Your best option at this time would be to plug in a dealer-level scan tool capable of showing all engine data. This would allow you to see what is happening as the engine warms up.

Best Regards.
