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.

Have Kia Sedona 2003 Automatic with a leak that is either steering fluid or transmisson fluid, are these fluids the same colour?

In most cases Automatic Fluid (ATF) is used as hydraulic fluid for power steering systems, so, yes, they are the same fluid. To identify the origin of your leak, place some sheets of news paper under the front of the car and see where the oil drops collect. Look above that and identify whether it is nearer the transmission or the power steering system. You may also be able to see the origin of the leak from beneath the car with the front raised on ramps (not jacks).

The steering on my 2002 kia sedona is very stiff and keeps getting worse

This is likely due to a failing power steering pump. Check your level first and add power steering fluid as necessary. If it gets better, you have a leak and the leak needs to be found. This is a saftey item. The black resevoir will say "power steering fluid" on a black cap on the passenger side (right) of the vehicle. Let me know what you find and I will be happy to advise and walk you through this.

Steering is very stiff. I have bled the lines and replaced the fluid. Started doing it just now and then and now it does it all the time would it be my pump?

why did you replace the fluid? it could be the pump, but pressure needs to be checked. when you turn steering wheel all the way to the stop, it should whine somewhat. Make sure the belt is tight.

Power steering is stiff some times on my kia sedona

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.

2003 kia sedona

I had the same thing (hard to turn, especially in cold temps, wouldn't return to straight.....). Since the power steering fluid was full, I decided it had to be "gunk" in the fluid, so I took my '03 Kia Sedona in to have the power steering fluid flushed & filled (over $100 I think!).

No better. So I took it to another mechanic and he said that the "U-Bolt" had frozen up. He changed it (part was $117 and labor was 2 hours, for a total cost of $350ish) and it's good as new now!
