Question about 2002 Kia Sedona

Hard stearing on my 2002 Kia Sedona

When i first bought the van used the power steering when i first started it up was was a little stiff till it warmed up. After the years it got worse to the point even at high RPM s and the engine was warmed up it didn't get easier to steer it got to the point like i had no power steering . Plus the fluid level was at the proper level . How can i test my power steering pump to see if its bad . And please is there any thing else that you can tell me how to check .

Ck the PS fluid for a burnt smell. If so, flush the system & replace the pump. U also have to make sure your tires, chassis (alignment) , rack & pinion ( if equipped) are in good order too. Ck the PS fluid w the vehicle running. & if u flush it, make sure its full when done by cking it running.

72000 miles and only replace fuel pump? Never a tune up? If so, it just might be as simple as that....

SOURCE: power steering is stiff some times on my kia

It might be a failing power steering rack as well...classic symptoms are very stiff when first starting vehicle or at a stoplight, then loosens up as rpms increase.

2004 Kia sedona replaced power steering pump and belt even changed the rack but still hard to turn.gets hard then normal and back and forth . as you are turning . help.


Lower ball joints and strut bearings. But these can cause a stiff turn. Nothing like when you loose your power steering. You could have bought a bad rack. Been there. I started rebuilding all mine.

Sometimes its hard to turn van


First I'd check your power steering fluid. However it's common for the rack and pinion to go bad as the vehicle ages, other than that it could also be you're power steering pump. You will have to have a mechanic take a look at it to be sure.

I have noticed that at times my steering on my kia sedona lx 2004 gets stiff like the power steering is gone .. as well my coolant levels are fine but i have no heat nor is the a/c blowing cold air .. what...


Some modern cars have an electrically driven pump to supply high pressure oil to operate the power steering. However, most cars have an oil pump for the steering which is turned by a belt from the crankshaft pulley. If the belt is loose or slipping, heavy steering will be the result, especially noticable at low speeds. Check belt for tightness, and check oil level is not low, possibly due to a leak?

Seems to blow hot and cold air from the a/c, steering is a little tight and car vibrates some, just bought car. it is a kia sedona 2002


These models did have a recall on the rear thermostatic controll valve for the A/C. Have the system checked. The steering, check your powersteering fluid. These are kind of tight to give you a nice car like handling. These are not bad little vans. Have the front wheels balanced (if that is the vibration you are refering to). Let me know what you find and feel free to get back to me.

2004 kia sedona front end issues


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.
