Try changing fuel filter first, if not done recently. If it has been done lately, have fuel pressure tested.
If changing filter doesn't cure it, have fuel pressure tested . Also wouldn't hurt to stop into big parts store chain like Autozone, or Pep Boys for free trouble code scan & see if any have been stored. Write any /all, down & get back to us if you get some.

My Sedona losing power


Do you notice any check engine lights coming on the dash when this happens, also has the vehicle had any recent repairs or any reason why this may be happening? Any input from you is helpful. I will check my resources and see what we can find out. Please advise

Most likely fouled spark plugs, to see if it's a problem with the transmission shifting you can manually choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd anytime you want to test them

What causes my car ****. could that be my fuel pump


If the jerking happens under load (accelerating on the highway, going up a hill), it could be your fuel pump, but more likely your fuel FILTER.
If the jerking happens at higher RPM, it is more likely a misfire from a bad spark plug wire, fouled spark plug, or bad coil pack,
If you notice a smell of raw fuel when the vehicle is idling, make sure that your air filter is clean.
If the "Check Engine" light is on, have a local auto parts store connect an ODB sensor to determine what code is being generated.

Prado jerking while going up hill or jerking when accelerating


Hi,
When was the last tune-up done? Should be done every 30-45KM, or depending on what your owner's manual maintenance book states.
1. Spark plugs
2. Spark plug wires
3. Fuel Filter
4. Air filter
5. Oxygen Sensor

If these have recently been replaced then do you have Check Engine Light (CEL)? If so, you'll need to get that checked by a mechanic.

Stalling and Jerking


I would check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced for awhile. The last 2 fuel filters I changed, the gas coming out of it looked like black ink.

I am having the same problems with 2003 Kia Sedona


Drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Filter is attached to the fuel pump. Sounds like the fuel pump is failing.

Acts like starving for gas


This is caused by some sort of fuel restriction within the fuel filter or, it could be a weak or failing pump as well.

I recommend changing the fuel filter and replacing the fuel pump. You can also benefit from replacing the spark plugs and wires. this will improve the performance of this vehicle.

If the engine light is illuminated, it is best to get the codes by running a diagnostic scan soon on the ecm.
