Kia Sorento Problem Report
Kia Sorento Engine Misfire Due to Faulty Ignition Coil
An engine misfire may develop due to a failed ignition coil. Our technicians tell us one coil is used for each cylinder. If one fails, often times another is not far behind. It may be worth considering replacing all the coils if a failure is encountered.
My Sorento has been driving a little rough, this morning when I turned the car on it was shaking a bit, when I started to drive the check engine light would come on whenever my foot was on the gas. Brought it to my mechanic, he told me one of my ignition coils were bad and the other 2 were on their way out soon. Replaced the bad one today ($300), next week replacing the other 2 ($600). - Visitor

my car has been misfire and the ocde came up for ingnition coil - Visitor
Engine idling rough at very low idle. Clears up in colder weather, worse in warmer weather. Check engine light didn't go on at first, and mechanics couldn't figure it out. When engine light came on, code indicated ignition coil failure. Tested to be sure that is what it was by switching out coil, and verified which coil was out. Replaced it and problem returned shortly. Another coil out. Mechanics say they will replace only when they fail .. no need to replace them before they fail because it wont leave me stranded and they can get it done in a couple of hours while I am at work. Love my mechanics, and love my Kia! - Visitor

Now a month later, the same thing has happened. Call my mechanic and he he going to look at it today...11/15/14. I can't believe this is not a recall problem!
