Hello, sounds like there is a vacuum leak somewhere. Most likely it is in the intake manifold or the air intake tube. In order to do a tune up on the 2006 Sorento you need to remove the intake manifold. I would bring it back to the shop and have them check their work as they should have replaced the gaskets before reinstalling the manifold.
