I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...

Could be a sensor , but without testing , this would be a guess ! Have seen TPS - throttle position sensors on chysler products do this , Mass air flow sensors on GM vehicles , plus bad IAC - idle air control motor . Don't think you would like to replace all these parts , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Have it tested !

Drivers window wont go up or down properly and makes a funny noise

The teeth on the arm might be stripped or the window motor might be dying. You will have to take off the door panel to see.

Driver's side power window motor stuck

This problem is going to be a bad motor or window regulator, you will need to remove the door panel and check the regulator, the regulator is the most common but the motor can also be bad, if the window goes or sits straight and is not loose in its track then i would say its the motor, a quick trick is to hold the window switch in up or down postion and bang on the inside of the door hard and see if the window starts to work if it does then its the motor,

My drivers side window won't go back up once I have it down, but if I wait long enough it will go back up alittle at a time. any suggestions? thanks

Mine is a 2006 Dodge Caravan, after learning the regulator and motor had been replaced 3 times within 40,000 miles I converted it to manual. I welded a piece of hex stock to the center of the motor. The ratchet handle folds into the panel to lock the window. Works great!

94 toyota camry eletric window problem

Bad connection. Even worse maybe the motor brush is worn. Anyways open it and try to do a wiggle test on the wires to find out which one it is. Also tap the motor if accesable.

05 sunfire electric window goes down but won't go back up

Should test the swith first with a test light at the connector to the motor. If that is fine then check the regulator any bent parts can cause this to happen. If there are no bent parts try jumping the motor to see if the window goes up and down. If it still won't go up then the easiest solution is to change out the regulator and motor at the same time, if done seperately it is hard.

Driver side power window only moves up a little bit at a time

Yes there is a problem with ur window motor. You should have an auto electrician to check it out. There are alot of things that can wrong with the motor though. If u want, u can remove the motor and connect it directly to the battery and observe how it operates. If it operates the saem way when winding up, it might need repairing or replacing
