Question about Kia Sedona

1 Answer

My 2004 Kia Sedona keeps dying, and I think it does it when it warms up. I will be driving down the road and then when I start to slow down, it will die on me, then will not start back up. Can you help with suggestions?

When this type of a problem occurs the computer that controls the electronic engine systems will record a fault code in almost every case, it is likely you have a fault in the ignition system that is causing this stall, there is a test that needs to be run to pull this code from the computers memory, if is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen Auto and Autozone parts store will run the OBD2 fault code test for free, they however are NOT qualified to offer a solution, a trained electronic engine control tech needs to do that, once the code is known post it here on Fixya for one of us experts to look at that know these systems.

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 !

2004 kia sedona problems

It sounds as though you have ignition. Try a shot of starter fluid an see if the engine tries to start. If it sounds like it wants to start, you can at least narrow it down to the fuel delivery system. Let me know.

I have just purchased a 2005 kia sedona from a mechanic. It's a nice car, but every time I'm driving down a road and step on the brake, the door locks unlock all the doors. The automatic door

it sounds like you may have a door switch going bad or in need to adjustment, the car thinks the door is ajar and then cycles the locks. the hard part may be to figure out which switch is making it act up.

2004 Kia Sedona keeps stalling

Your problem sounds like you have a bad crankshaft position sensor. You will not get a trouble code (check engine light). This will cause the vehicle to suddenly stall. You cannot change the idle on this vehicle, or any FI modern vehicle contrary to a previous post. It is controlled by the engine management computer by way of an idle air control circuit on the throttle body.
