Customer Question
I have a 2012...

I have a 2012 Kia Sorento. when I accelerate my RPM wont go over 2 and it making a loud noise

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

Im assuming the transmission is from 2012

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

Nothing yet im trying to figure that out.

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

That's about it

Once the car is warmed up, the noise doesn't happen so much. In the morning when I start the car and drive off it starts. Its sounds like im revving my engine when im accelerating. But I noticed the RPM wont go over 2-3 when pressing on the gas to go.
