Question about 2003 Kia Sedona
When I shift from Park to Reverse, Reverse to Drive or Drive to Reverse the car "creeks" loudly. Sounds to me like motor or transmission mounts but Kia nor a trusted mechanic can seem to pinpoint the issue. At this point I'm considering throwing parts at it till the noise goes away or I have a new car.. thoughts?
I would guess Mounts too.
maybe check te Strut mounts as well, they torque up as teh car goes from neutral to a gear ( forward or reverse)

Have a shop put it on a rack and then they can isolate the noise and what is causing it. This is far cheaper then just throwing parts at it which is not a very bright thing to do money wise and likely will not fix the problem. There also may be a factory service bulletin on the noise. Join a KIA owners online forum and ask the questions of other owners, a very HELPFUL source of fix information. Good luck with this.

If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

Time to change your brake pads. That is the indicator scraping the rotor this lets you know its time to change your pads.

My rio kia bought on from uyi technical dealer in benin city, edo state of nigeria only 4 months ago is vibrating with noise while driving. The noise is noticed by other road users even in motion, making a very loud noise or sound that is highly embarrassing. The dealer mechanics have checked more than twice yet no result, instead the hub bearing is observed; tyres are turn over yet the noise persists.
What do think is resolution to the problem? pls help me. Vinson- firstname.lastname@example.org
