Question about 2005 Kia Sedona
The check engine light comes on after about 15 minutes of driving in the morning and once the evening hours hit, it goes off. The only code showing is for a "Blocked EVAP Canister". It runs fine, I just can't get it inspected until the light goes off. Any ideas on how to fix this problem? It's always been like this. Last year, a new gas cap fixed the problem for a little while, but then it resurfaced.

On my wife's car the mechanic said it was gas cap. (NOT!!) I cleared with an OBD reader and the code suggested a leak in the evatorator system. I found a steel tube that was routed over the weld flange of the gas tank. It went from the front of the car, down the drivers side, over the weld joing of the gas tank and into a charcoal evaporator filter on the passengers side near the rear wheel. The tube crossing over the gas tank crumbled when I touched it. I replaced it with a short piece of reinforced neoprene hose (to cross over the gas tank) and a couple of hose clamps. Cost of parts was about $5.00. Havn't seen Check Engine since. Good luck

Sounds like the dealer has more work to do on the EVAP System. Smoke test the system and check Tech Service Bulletins. You could go to a local garage,it would be cheaper.
