Question about 2005 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

My 2005 Sedona is hard to turn, steering wheel jerks, power steering fluid is full.

When I back out of a drive way and do a sharp turn I can barely turn it and it jerks, if I put on the gas while turning its slightly easier, even a wide turn is hard, almost like no power steering. Other than that it runs fine.

both fluids come from different areas so you need to get the car to one of those oil change places where you or some guy who works there can take a look at the underbelly of the car and tell you where the fluid is coming from. there will be a wet trail and the head of it will tell you whence it comes.

Have a 2005 Odyssey and recently having a tough time turning the steering wheel. Checked Power Steering fluid but it is OK. After car gets going it isnt a problem. What is wrong? Temps have been around -5...


More than likely it is still the power steering pump. What is happening is the fluid is heating up and thinning out and cycling through the pump causing it to work normally. There is actually a SB about the hard steer at low speeds on the Odyssey - contact your local dealer and they should be familiar with this issue.

Kia Sedona hard to turn (2006)


Hi
If your system has leaked fluid out when you've topped it back up it could have caused an airlock in the system this can usually be rectified by turning the steering wheel from lock to lock several times whilst the vehicle is stationary this usually pushes the air out but keep checking the fluid bottle as the level will drop whilst its getting rid of any air !
Hope this helps Nick

I am having tremendous difficulty turning the steering wheel - checked the power steering fluid and it is full -- what else could it be?? Thank you. Cathy Beadnell cathy_beadnell@doh.state.fl.us


This is a known problem and has been increasingly noted by sedona owners. Steering shaft becomes corroded making vehicle steer hard. They say due to salt but if you live anywhere it snows you cant avoid it.

Power steering seems to go out


Check the fluid in it. If low add some back. When you have topped it off turn the wheels left and right for a few minutes then recheck. It sounds like you may have air in your lines. If it is full make sure the belt is still on. If everything is on and full then your pump may need to be replaced. Good luck

Power steering problems


Very common on the Sedonas, the intermediate shaft u-joint becomes corroded from road grime/salt TSB(KT2008101402). It connects the steering wheel to the rack outside the firewall. It will bind and then release, but will work fine for a while, when oiled or soaked with water (while it's raining). The only solution is replacement...easy to do (1/2 hour job for DIY'r). part #0K52Y 32550

Cannot turn steering wheel


Make sure that the belt is not glazed and slipping on the pulley - they should both appear to be turning at the same speed. There is a chance that you have burned up the power steering pump and the noise you hear is the bearings complaining about the lack of lubricant they incurred.

2003 kia sedona


I had the same thing (hard to turn, especially in cold temps, wouldn't return to straight.....). Since the power steering fluid was full, I decided it had to be "gunk" in the fluid, so I took my '03 Kia Sedona in to have the power steering fluid flushed & filled (over $100 I think!).

No better. So I took it to another mechanic and he said that the "U-Bolt" had frozen up. He changed it (part was $117 and labor was 2 hours, for a total cost of $350ish) and it's good as new now!
