    Help With KIA Part

    Not having much luck finding a throttle position sensor for my D-I-L's 2008 KIA Sorento 3.3.

    I know this is a Soul forum. RockAuto was not much help. Any hints on finding what's proving to be a difficult to find part?

    ^^Yeah I am aware of that. I just thought one of the high-speed geniuses here might have some insight or knowledge.

    This may be a KIA-only part, it does not appear available via NAPA, O'Reilly, RockAuto, etc.

    If it's a part that rarely fails, odds are nobody else saw any profit in making just a few parts and that would make it a KIA-only part available only at dealers.

    I'll know by tomorrow.

    And.....you don't want to call your Kia Dealer's parts guy.....why?

    It would seem like the logical place to start.

    I'm on first name basis with my Kia parts guys and I can call them and ask them anything.

    Want their number?

    Hi,

    Is it setting off a check engine light? If it is suggest looking in the glovebox, and check your emissions warranty in the manual. Its usually a lot longer than a regular warranty, so it might be covered under warranty. If not some parts are Kia only or possibly local junkyard. Hope that helps

    Thanks for the responses. It was night time and the KIA dealer was closed.
    We were operating on best available information from D-I-L who gets a bit excited and doesn't know much about cars and won't always follow recommendations.

    No, but thanks for the reference.

    Went to local KIA emporioum today and ordered part for $29.10. Dealer will forward it to D-I-L when it arrives and she'll get it sometime next week.

    Don't ask.
