SOURCE: losing coolant from pipes above rear axle on kia

It sounds like a leak in the water jacket of your motor, it could be just a head gasket if you're lucky. Also check for a leak in the coolant pipes them selves usualy at the connections.

My kia sedona 2003 is overheating is it the water pump


Probably not the water pump. The most common cause is rusted out/leaking underbody heater rear heater lines. The steel portions of the lines rust and leak coolant. The low coolant level will cause the engine to overheat. If overheated repeatedly these engines will usually warp the cylinder heads. This will cause severe overheating and may damage the radiator and other components due to combustion gasses entering the cooling system. A cooling system pressure test should be done to check for external leaks, and a block test can be done to check for the presence of combustion gasses entering the cooling system.Make sure to check coolant level in the radiator when cold, NOT in the reservoir on the inner fender. This could also be caused by something as simple as a thermostat or radiator fans that aren't working.

2005 kia sedona 76,000 overheats the engine


My 2005 KIA Sedona started overheating in Winter 2009/2010 and was loosing antifreeze. No leaks from the heater hoses or radiator hose. No pressure in the radiator either.

I had found a site where folks were discussing the same things and someone brought up the rear heater. Apparently KIA has run steel hoses running under the chasis to the rear of the van and these rot.

I looked under the rear at the wheel well and located the lines and they were wet with antifreeze. I traced the lines to the firewall and found where the lines were connected to the coolant system and bypassed the rear heater lines.

I then filled up the radiator and overflow tank with antifreeze and started the van. I rocked the van to get air to move out of the lines and kept adding antifreeze until it was full. then used the overflow tank to top it off.

Hope this helps.

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.

2003 Kia sedona a/c


Our Sedona had a similar problem, Turned out that the pipes to the rear heater had corroded and were leaking, caused some overheating which blew hot air when the A/C was on. I would check this then check the coolant pressure.

There is antifreeze leaking from the rear of my 2005 kia sedona. I I am not sure what it is leaking from but there is 2 hoses under there! Why would there be antifreeze in the rear of the van?


many vans have rear heater cores for added passenger comfort, so this is not unusual, it is very possiable either the hoses or there connections to the rear eater core are leaking or the heater core itself is leaking.

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
