Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Sorento 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Engine just died. No warning, no surging, no sputtering. Someone said it sounded like a fuel pump. But the pump turns when cranking, but does not pressure up when key is on. Again someone else said a bad relay. I switched out the relay but no change. I will not start at all. But the pump runs while cranking. Disconnected gas return line and then cranked again. I seem to have gas pumping through line, although I am not sure what is normal pressure. But the pump is still turning when cranking.

Check that and let me know what you find. Finally, is the check engine light on?
