Could be many things .make sure the thermostat is operating correctly ie the engine warms up within 5 minutes when first starting it for the day . check the air filter is clean . tap the muffler and listen for any loose rusty metal flakes that could be blocking the exhaust system. get it properely diagnsed.

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.

May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

While driving at 120km the suv vibrates badly

this could be ALOT of different things! inner or outter tie rods(front of vehicle), bad tires, ball joints(front of vehicle).
Your best bet would be to have it looked at, from a shop or possibly a mechanic buddy!
Good luck

My 2004 Kia Sedona's engine light is constantly on. A mechanic attached a diagnostic tool and came up with the following codes: P0431 and P0325. Anything to be concerned about? Thanks

P0325 Knock sensor (KS) 1 , bank 1 - circuit malfunction
Possible causes: Wiring, poor connection, KS

knock sensor malfunction may reduce fuel mileage due to computer reducing ignition timing advance.

To repair: Check connector on knock sensor. If connection is good, replace sensor.

P0431 Warm up catalytic converter, bank 2 - efficiency below threshold
Possible causes: Catalytic converter, wiring, HO2S 2

increased HC emissions--no effect on engine performance unless caused by rich mixture.

To repair: Usually caused by worn out converter, but first verify fuel pressure regulator is not leaking fuel into it's vacuum port and that fuel pressure at the fuel rail is not above specification.

The car will run fine and there are no safety issues; however, before driving over anything that could ignite (for example, grass), make sure the catalytic converter is not glowing red.

If you have more questions, please let me know.

Po300 code/ when is cool in the morning,the suv when a due gas .

Sounds like your fuel pressure is leaking gas which is located in your intake platinum with your fuel injector unit (SCFI). When the fuel leaks out over night, it floods the intake with gas causing it to give your the issues you have described.
The other issue that may be happening is that your SCFI system is on it's way out due to excessive carbon build on the fuel poppet nozzle which is causing you to have the issues your having.
With the problem you have described, i would lean towards the faulty fuel pressure regulator leaking since the Blazer is running fine after the extra fuel that leaked in to the intake have burnt off.
Replace the fuel pressure regulator first and clean the upper intake platinum of carbon before reassembly.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

The only thing you can do is drive it until it is really low on fuel, and put some good gas in it. DO NOT FLOOR IT. It can cause pre-ignition, and possibly hurt the motor.
