Not really. You can replace the thermostat if you are a little mechanically inclined. If that does not work, have your car scanned to see if the Temperature control sensor is bad.

What are the symtoms of a bad catalytic converter on a 2003 kia rio


a bad converter will give off a "rotten egg" smell, restrict the exhaust & cause the engine to operate at a hotter temperature, the heater will be excessively hot, the radiator or heater core could begin to leak, hoses will have extra pressure on them & there will be blow-by fumes forcing their way back from the exhaust maniforld into the engine if the converter becomes too plugged. This causes your motor oil to become dirty much more quickly too, causing extra wear on the engine You can generally see a very rusted exhaust behind the converter once this has happened. You'll get a miss, followed by sputtering & eventually either a frozen motor, blown headgasket, cracked head, or other problems caused by heat. good luck

2003 kia sedona over heating and no heat


Check your rear coolant lines, These lines always rust and start leaking coolant and thats why your engine over heats and you dont get any heat inside your car. This is a common problem with kia sedona that have rear A/C and Heater. There are two fixes to this problem. The first is to replace the rear heater coolant lines with the updated lines from kia. The second will be bypassing the rear coolant lines with a hose, however the rear heater will not work with this method.

removing the rear coolant lines is not that easy. The lines near the fire wall are really hard to remove. Its also much easier to replace the lines with the car on a hoist.
hope that helpfull
