Question about Kia Sedona
Leaking from under the radiator cap a tube that looks like a lil fan, what is this?
Your description doesn't help much, but going on where I have found leaks in the past, the main place is the pipework that goes from more or less where you describe and goes under the car all the way to the rear heater. These pipes do rot and leak. I have lost count of how many Sedona's I have seen with the rear heater pipes looped out to stop leaks. You just need to dry all around where you think the leak is and watch carefully for water leaking. unless you give a better description I cant help you further, sorry

SOURCE: Leaking coolant
Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

This link has a diagram showing the location of the relay: http://autorepair.about.com/library/faqs/bl581g.htm
The Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) radiator cooling fan relay is located behind the front bumper fascia below the right head lamp.

I had the same problem.The leak was from the block heater.I did not notice any leaks on the ground,but was always low on anti freeze.The block heater came apart on the highway and blew all the fluid out of the car,luckly i shut the car off and had it towed to the shop.They replaced the block heater with a rubber frost plug to get me back on the road.Have your block heater checked,they maybe your problem has well.

This is where you fluid goes. If I were you, I would stay away from those sealants. But yes you can put the sealant in the reserve, but it;s best if you drain half the water out, pour in coolant and then re-fill. This gives it a better chance to flow throughout the system. Sometimes these sealants can cause more harm than good in the long run.

Physically look in the radiator under the cap for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.
Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it
