Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 kia sorento, I hear a hissing noise whenever I step on the acceleration. What's causing this?

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Inside the car, it sounds like it's coming from the driver's side

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sorento yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't done anything...just quickly inspected the engine compartment for anything obvious, but I'm not a mechanic or anything. Just thought anyone would know what this problem is. It started last week.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The hissing noise stops when I'm not stepping on the accleration.

Hello there,

I would say this sounds like a turbo boost pressure leak, could be a hose, or could be an intercooler damaged.

Shouldn't cause any harm if you avoid heavy acceleration.

Your car is under warranty, so I would contact your Kia dealer.

Hope this helps you.
