Question about 2002 Kia Sedona
I have a 2003 sedona, the owner states that at all times when he goes to fill up - it takes him 15 min to fill. Nothing is splashing back out, but it does seem to keep cutting out the over-fill on the pumps. He has tried changing angles with no effect. I have heard of this in other models, but I want to know if anyone has een it in a sedona and what if any was the remedy
We had the same issue with our 2002 KIA Sedona. A filter that snaps onto the side of the fuel vent canister (A plastic tank located just in front of the fuel tank) may be plugged. I replaced it for about $25.00. It's a tough job, only because the KIA is so close to the ground.
Hope that helps,

I have seen this in isolated cases at KIA , there was no TSB but the info was at the KIA site for techs , i believe it had to do with what was called the RORV , (roll over valve) , if i recall the fix was to drop the tank and replace this valve , it was in isolated cases .

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank
