Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

Creeking sound when putting 2005 sedona into gear

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.

SOURCE: won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?

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.

SOURCE: Why does my car vibrate and noisy at red light and stop sign

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- kvinson3000@yahoo.com

2005 Mountaineer 2 wheel drive, 6 cyl hard to shift when parked on incline or decline and doesnt feel like shifting into overdrive. Sometimes jump a few inches when put into reverse. Any thoughts.


Yes when you park on an incline you should always put your emergency brake on before shifting to park. Then whenyou are ready to move again put you car in gear before disengaging the emergency brake. this will remove the stress from the transmission.

I have a 2005 ford focus wagon which i maintain well but just noticed my front end creeks when i drive & when i exit the car. what do you think the problem is? thanks kelly


if the creek is most common while turning the wheel either in park or during a trip, The ball joints may be to blame, the only other "creek" may be a faulty shock or broken spring, however with either of those your car would most likely hop after bumps or lean to the side.

My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park to reverse. I had backed out the car and turned it off. when I went to move the car, my gear shift will not move out of the park position.


do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

Corolla kicks/jolts when shifting gears.


I am trying to understand your problem. Check engine mounts. Have a driver in the car, hood open. Start car, foot on brakes, shift from park to reverse and back again. Shift through all gears, look for unusual engine movements around engine mounts area. Left foot on brakes, press gas in drive and reverse;watch for excessive engine movements. Be careful as you perform these steps. You may also want to check drive axles. Keep me updated.

It won't switch gears out of park...automatic transmission


Have some one move the shift lever and you watch the linkage under the car to see if the lever is moving on the transmission. Sounds like the linkage is lose. Tighten the bolt on the linkage and you will off and running again.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.
