Question about 2006 Kia Sedona
Posted by Anonymous on
Well like Vlad I could guess as well, first clean off all oil from where you think it could be coming from, that's all around the filter. Start the engine and watch for the leak, as Vlad said it could be the rubber sealing ring on the filter itself, in which case try tightening the filter (sometimes they can loosen off if not fitted correctly) or as Vlad said replace the filter. (do an oil change too). if it isn't the filter ring (and you will only see by cleaning it off first) I would suggest it could be the actual housing that the filter fastens too, in which case you would need to remove the housing and replace the gasket. Cleaning it all off first is the best way to proceed, that way you stand a chance of tracing the source of the leak

You need just a robber ring under the filter (the best way is to replace oil/filter)

SOURCE: oil leak
If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!

I never heard such a thing ,first of all get under your vehicle and see if you can tell where the leak is coming from,A oil filter has a rubber gasket when applied with a thin coat of motor oil will seal itself ,you must tighten the filter on the spindle until it is snug fit(not over tighten) make sure your using manufacture suggested size and fit for your year vehicle.You may also want to check the oil drain plug it may have stripped threads and it could easily be your problem or the gasket around your oil pan could be bad. last but not least check for double gasketing it is when the o ring gasket of the old oil filter is still sealed on the oil housing area this would easily cause leakage.I hope i covered all your possibilities and please give me a 4 thumbs up if i was a help for you

move seat completely back.take off head restraint,tip backrest forward flat to seat, then, grab the pull cord and pull backward so that seat tips forward then grab bars on front of underseat and squeeze together and lift.be careful these seats ARE HEAVY.

The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.
