Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Car would not start for wife she had it towed home I tried next morning it started first try and sounded fine, check engine light has been coming on when fueling it has gone out added injector cleaner stopped engine during fueling would not start, engine turns over acted like it was going to start idle was sluggish as though not enough gas after several attempts to start engine would not turn over as though the battery was drained also during starting it would act like the timeing was jumping I know a little about combustion engines external repairs my thoughts are the fuel pump could be going out or the fuel filter needs changed or it is jumping timing which is a stretch one thing about the sedona nothing is cheap any help would be greatly appreciated I have only 1 vehicle running and it is very depressing.

My first thought is that you may have a fuel filter issue or a fuel pump starting to go south. The part about the battery could be a dirty terminal, loose cable or the battery is giving up. Clean the cables and check fuel pressure. I would try to see what trouble codes are stored and address them as well.

My 2007 GMC Yukon will not start in cold weather. When I turn the key over the lights/dash controls come on, but the engine does not turn over at all. Nothing. Put a new battery in and still does it. It is a random occurance. Would not start for two days this week so I had it towed to the dealership and the next morning it starts without the service dept doing anything??? Bring it home and two days later it does it again??? Any ideas?

2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change


It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

BMW 325xi; 160k; check engine light on-->next day, wont start!


I would try to jump it to see if the starter engages and the engine runs, if it does you have a connection problem between the engine starter and the battery, if it does the same thing with cables then you will probably have to tow it in to the shop. I do not think your problem is related to cold weather, but it could very well be related to the check engine light. Exactly what the check engine light is on for I can not say with out a code, but I agree with your thinking about taking it to the shop. Hope this helps, let me know.

1979 cad fleetwood brougham knocking sound from,engine


Sometimes collapsed lifters or loose rocker arms can cause knocking sounds in an engine. However, the fact that there was a possible loss of oil pressure and that the knocking gets louder as the rpm's increase, would indicate that there is damage to a connecting rod bearing and possibly the crankshaft. If the latter is the case you are looking at a fairly substantial repair bill.
