sir, my kia sorento dieasel engine has no initial fuel pressure when starting, but if I put gasoline on the intake manifold the engine starts. Also there's no idling, when I take of my foot on the accelerator pedal the engine stalls and always the "check engine" indicator lamp is on. Thaks very much

Hi:
My speciality isn't diesel, but let me try to help. First, if the check engine light is on, there is a trouble code stored in the computer. Take it to a nationally recognized parts store to have it scanned. Most will do it for free. Let me know what you find.

As far as the no start, I need you to check for fuel pressure. Here is a how to for checking it. Let me know what you find.
