This is a known problem and has been increasingly noted by sedona owners. Steering shaft becomes corroded making vehicle steer hard. They say due to salt but if you live anywhere it snows you cant avoid it.

If it makes a clicking noise when you turn that way, and it doesn't sound like it is coming from underneath. It could be the steering coupling. I just had mine replaced.

2004 Kia sedona replaced power steering pump and belt even changed the rack but still hard to turn.gets hard then normal and back and forth . as you are turning . help.


Lower ball joints and strut bearings. But these can cause a stiff turn. Nothing like when you loose your power steering. You could have bought a bad rack. Been there. I started rebuilding all mine.

No power steering


Possibly it`s a bad power steering pump. Check the lines for leaks, make sure fluid level is full first. Power steering is a closed system. Some cars are equipped with a rack and pinion steering. Conventional cars have a power steering pump and a gear box.

Im assuming that you mean power steering fluid is leaking... top off the fluid, replace cap, and have a freind turn the steering wheel back and forth while you check the hoses and lines for leaking fluid.

Steering is very stiff. I have bled the lines and replaced the fluid. Started doing it just now and then and now it does it all the time would it be my pump?


why did you replace the fluid? it could be the pump, but pressure needs to be checked. when you turn steering wheel all the way to the stop, it should whine somewhat. Make sure the belt is tight.

This sounds like textbook steering rack failure. If the internal seals wear out the rack will leak fluid internally, causing the exact symptoms you're describing. These can be rebuilt, but it's hardly worth the effort. It's less headache and only slightly more expensive to replace it.
