Question about 2005 Kia Sedona
I just had my front and rear brakes serviced. The pads and shoes were replaced.When I drove out About 2 minutes later the yellow light went on. I went to the manual and it says it has something to do with the emission control system.
I have my oil changed every 3000 miles or 3 months.. We have had the car for 4 years and only have 24000 miles on it.
When the yellow light went on, it started to make a pinging/rattling sound.
The dealer told me that he sees this quite often for those individuals who choose to go to a generic or other brand oil filter.
I called up three kia dealers. Two said that a spin on oil filter - no difference and as long as it screws on and does not leak it is okay.
The parts manager at the third Kia dealer said that the Kia filter has a spring which has something to do with the compression, etc.......
So does the fact that I go to Walmart every 3 months to have my oil changed have anything to do with the yellow light going on. Does the fact that I had my brake pads and shoes replaced have anything to do with the yellow light going on?
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.
