2002 KIA Sedona Overheating

Noticed temp gauge pegging high, so I turned on all the interior heaters to dissapate, temp went down. Put coolant in resivour (was empty) and went on, ran fine.

Overheated again, turned on interior heaters, nothing but cold air and temp only went up...no plum of white smoke from rear...engine coolant steaming from upper radiator hose area where would normally go into thermostat on most vehicles. Did a sticking thermostat become a stuck thermostat?

The thermostat may be wearing out. A thermostat controls the engine temperature to keep it at a consistent temperature, The other fan will probably turn on if you turn on your Air Conditioner.

Replace your thermostat. first of all it is the cheapest.It is probably stuck in the closed position not allowing your coolant to flow.

Temp gauge often reads too hot, engine normal.


It sounds like your cooling fans are not comming on by themselves, but when you turn on the ac it forces them to turn on. Make sure relay is good, then replace coolant temp sensor, this may have failed no telling pcm to turn on cooling fans. Thanks

Overheating in 2002 sedona


To check if it is the thermostat run the car and when the temp starts going up turn the heat on full blast in the car. If the temp goes down after you turn the heat on than it is your thermostat.

2003 kia sedona over heating and no heat


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
