Probably not the water pump. The most common cause is rusted out/leaking underbody heater rear heater lines. The steel portions of the lines rust and leak coolant. The low coolant level will cause the engine to overheat. If overheated repeatedly these engines will usually warp the cylinder heads. This will cause severe overheating and may damage the radiator and other components due to combustion gasses entering the cooling system. A cooling system pressure test should be done to check for external leaks, and a block test can be done to check for the presence of combustion gasses entering the cooling system.Make sure to check coolant level in the radiator when cold, NOT in the reservoir on the inner fender. This could also be caused by something as simple as a thermostat or radiator fans that aren't working.

Make sure the cooling system has been bled of all air and is full. Air in the system can cause overheating.Make sure the radiator cap is functioning properly. Worse case scenario is a bad headgasket.

Changing the water pump on 2003 kia sedona


To change a water pump you need to remove the fan belt, than you can remove water pump's bolts and take it out, replace the gasket as well and put the new pump in place. It is located on the same side as the alternator on the right.

Need to replace water pump in2005 kia sedona


The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.
