SOURCE: 2008 Kia Sedona Van - oil filter leaks like the exxon valdez

I never heard such a thing ,first of all get under your vehicle and see if you can tell where the leak is coming from,A oil filter has a rubber gasket when applied with a thin coat of motor oil will seal itself ,you must tighten the filter on the spindle until it is snug fit(not over tighten) make sure your using manufacture suggested size and fit for your year vehicle.You may also want to check the oil drain plug it may have stripped threads and it could easily be your problem or the gasket around your oil pan could be bad. last but not least check for double gasketing it is when the o ring gasket of the old oil filter is still sealed on the oil housing area this would easily cause leakage.I hope i covered all your possibilities and please give me a 4 thumbs up if i was a help for you

SOURCE: My 2006 Kia Sedona air

No, it is not necessary to take your vehicle to the dealer for service and repair of your airbag/Passive Restraint system. Although I will say that if there are any parts required to repair the system, they will have to come from the dealer because the aftermarket simply does not handle parts for the restraint systems on almost all cars - especially a Kia. Check with your favorite shop. They may be willing to tackle this task if their scanners are equipped with the correct software to diagnose your restraint system. Some aftermarket shops will not mess with an airbag system at all. For instance, If you brought it to my shop I would handle it for you, but the shop down the street from me usually refers their airbag problems to my shop.

I took my wife's Kia Sedona in for service at a Kia dealer. He told me the timing belt need to be changed before 60,000 miles. Is this true?

Timing belts do need to be changed at mileage intervals set by the manufacurer. 60,000 miles sounds about right. Failure to change it may cause it to wear out and fail. Should that happen, you can cause serious damage to the engine up to needing a replacement. Look in your owners manual and it should give you the "service intervals".

I have a 2006 kia sedona, with the automatic rear liftgate that we are having problems with. The door opens, but when it gets all the way open, it jerks, quite a bit, and sometimes comes back down. We...

60,000 miles? I doubt it unless it is under a time limit warranty, like 2 or 3 year warranty and it has been serviced by an authorized KIA garage.

You realy dont give a lot of info here. However most of the time if you have a oil leak it is comming from the VALVE COVER. The gasket goes bad and starts leaking, This is more anoing then anything else. But need to be addressed

2005 kia sedona ex.

no it has nothing to do with regular oil changes as long as they are done right and frequent. is the yellow light say check engine or service engine soon? if it does take it to advance auto parts or a similiar parts store chain they usually will scan the pcm for free, but with only 24000 miles you should have warranty left on this vehicle if so take it to the dealer to fix at no cost to you.

Leaking valvecover

Depends on how much it is leaking. I would check the oil every so often depending on how much oil it was leaking.

Oil leak on right side under top engine cover

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.
