Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

I have a 2007 Kia Sedona. Occasionally it will have an overwhelming fuel smell both inside and ousted of the vehicle. A quick smell check leads me to believe that the issue is not engine related, as the engine runs fine. The strongest smell is near the gas tank. The gas cap is on tight. Any ideas?

My friends Carnival (Sedona) dose the same thing, This is just fuel vapor releasing from the breather. Nothing to worry about! If you want to keep up check's, keep a notice on how many miles you can do to a tank, if this reduces then you may have a leak. Have you local mechanic take a look

How do I find the fuel filter on a 2007 Kia sedona


Like many other vehicles today, your fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pump located inside the fuel tank. It is not serviced as maintenance. ONLY if there is an issue with weak fuel pressure or fuel pump failure. This means that if you replace the filter, you are replacing the whole pump assembly at around $400 for the part. If you want to replace it, you remove the rear seat cushion and there is an access panel to remove to get to top of fuel tank and remove the fuel pump to replace it.

But again, you dont need to replace this unless it has failed.

2007 Kia Sedona constantly emitting rotten egg smell


Its possible the problem is the cat, or it could be bad gas.
Have you tried switching to a different brand of fuel ?
And the cat may be covered by the dealer warranty.

2002 kia sedona is loosing coolant.....within 2 days after filling the reservoir to FULL, it went a little more than halfway down to low . No leaking on ground. Sometimes smell coolant inside van after...


The heater core is leaking into the heaterbox under the dash. Which is why you smell antifreeze/coolant inside. After a while (if left go too long) you'll notice antifreeze on the floor/carpet and possibly running out from under the vehicle as it flows out of the drain for the air conditioner (the heaterbox has a drain in it to let out the moisture produced by the a/c)

Smell of gas coming from under the van, no noticeable leaks.


Hi, this is typically caused by an evap system vent valve that is stuck open. This will allow the fuel vapors from the tank to escape and cause this smell. This can also occur if the vehicle is overfueled.
If the car is not over fueled, you need to replace the evap system vent valve.

Kia sedona 2002 smell gas in the interior of car


Sounds like you might have bad O2 sensors, leaking fuel injector O rings or a bad fuel pressure regulator. Check that the vacuum hose to the pressure regulator is connected and no cracks or holes in it. Any check engine light?

How much gas is left in the tank when the low fuel indicator light comes on in a 2007 Kia Sedona


Generally, vehicles have about 100 km of reserve left. Of course, this depends on how you drive it!

With that said, I have driven over 100 km in my 2004 Sedona, with the light on (and my knees knocking). Was in a place where fuel wasn't readily available and I went for it. I was happy to have the 5-5-5 warranty, as they would have come out with some fuel, ut it was a trying experience!

Hope this helps!!!

Fuel Filter location on a Petrol 2004 Kia Carnival


The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank, pump removal is required to replace. There is an inspection cover behind the front seats on the floor to gain access to the pump. stupid idea. but whats not stupid about kia.
