2004 Kia Sedona - Over heating

Hi I have replaced the thermostat and flushed the coolant for the overheating problem ... and it seemed to have worked for a couple of hours .. but then it started all over again. And this time there was some smoke coming out aswell. I am not sure what could be the reason .. the mechanic says that the gasket for the engine has broken and needs a replacement .. but i am not sure if he is trying a trial and error method ... on the vehicle pls help ... thanks

  • A_BANGUR Feb 05, 2009

    i am not too sure ... it was coming from below the van and since then i haven't used it ... it is at the mechanics place ...

    But as far as I know if the gasket is gone wont the oil change it's color and properties and become more like a turbid solution of white color ... thanks for all the help

    The smoke you are talking about is that out the tail pipe

  • jim beckwith Feb 05, 2009

    If the smoke was coimng from the back then your mechanic is correct because that is the head gasket

KIA SEDONA HAS REAR HEAT BUT NOT FRONT HEAT BLOWERS WORK BUT ONLY COLD AIR COMES IN FRONT


This could be a serious problem. Check your coolant level, then check the rear heater lines that supply coolant to the rear heater. They run under the van, over time they rust and leak. Because it is under and to the rear of the van it is hard to notice, i.e. coolant puddles and smell. But please note that this engine has aluminum cylinder heads and does not take kindly to being overheated.

No heat


Check the heater hoses going into the firewall when hot they should both be warm one more so than the other. if they are cool you do not have coolant geting to the heater core thermostat is wrong or backwards. I asume you replaced the stat due to this problem so your hoses are probably hot. If there is a big differance the heater core may be plugged. flush it from the cooler of the two hoses with a garden hose out the side of the hotter hose. DO not do this while it is hot! If the hoses are close in temp you have a blend door control issue. It may be the actuator on the heater box or the controller on the dash. Good Luck

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
