Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Sometimes it will start sometimes it will not. I will go out and try and start it and it will not start, i'll go our a couple hrs later and it will start. I have replaced cam shaft sensor,crank shaft sensor,ig failure sensor. Went out today to start and would not. Went back a few hrs later started fine. I just don't know what to do and I can not afford to take it in to have it looked at.

This sounds like a problem with the fuel pump relay. Go into your under-hood fuse box and find the relay that operates the fuel pump. Switch it with another relay that is similar, and see if you still have the same trouble with the vehicle.

After a while, the electrical contacts inside of the relay tend to foul up from use. This same thing recently happened on my friends' 2003 Saturn Vue.

1995 Pontiac Grand AM SE. Heater fan works for weeks then won't go, try a couple hours later then it goes.

It sounds like the brushes on armature for (blower motor ) are worn. Sometime a bad spot on the armature from not being used often and also by being in the engine compartment where it is exposed to condensation. When the brushes stop at that particular spot, the blower will not start spin process unless it draws alot of current that may be why the fuse blew. You can remove the blower and examine or just make the change.

I have a '95 Thunderbird Lx with a 4.6 L V8 that will sometimes turn over but will not start. It used to be a rare occurance and would eventually start after waiting awhile (sometimes an hour or so)...

i had the same kind of problem and if you pull the spark plug wires you'll see big black holds that the spark is going to the side of engine instead of going to plug. Change wires!

My 1998 sierra Z71 5.7L sometimes dosent start it will fire turn over then die out. come back a few hrs later starts right up.

Check the ICM. It may be on it's way out and will need to be replaced, also the fuel filter may be on it's way out and will need to be replaced. Start with these two things for now.
