SOURCE: my kia sedona wont start just click when turned on

Couple of things to try.

1. Check that the battery connections are both clean and tight on the battery.
2. Check water level in the battery is above the plates that you can see in the filler holes.
Caution:
(Handle the battery with care as the water in the battery has been charged and becone sulphuric acid which will burn your skin. Do not get this in your eyes.)

3. Turn the headlights on then start the vehicle, and if:
a) the lights dim the battery is not connecting properly or faulty, or:
b) the lights stay on full it would the starter motor relay or solenoid (part of the starter motor).

SOURCE: 2007 Dodge cummins diesel blowing white smoke on

'07 cummins engines are not to smoke at all. Cold, hot or upside down. If its smokin, its broken is the motto. '07 's are common rail fuel systems. I think you may have the DPF and the DOC exhaust system needs looked at. If no codes, have the dealer double check with ENSITE or comparable programs to check the engines crank and cam possitiion sensors to make sure they have the same rpm. you could have one going out. If just at startup you have smoke, may just be valve seals leaking. Good luck hope this helped.

by the way unburned fuel is black not white, thats oil...

I have a 2005 KIA sedona. And when driving it sounds like it has a turbo. It also has no umph.instead it loses power going up hill. while the turbo sound it hesitate to shift gear.


Yours should be a 2.9 crd Turbo diesel if I'm correct & from what your describing sounds like you need to change out the diesel filter. These filters get clogged causing lack of power specially going up hill.
Is it blowing out black smoke? There could be other problems as well. Need more info like is the engine light on?

I have a 2005 Kia Sedona 3.5 that I fill it with water and I put 50/50 antifreeze in the reservoir . 2 days later nothing , and I never see a leak , never ??


Any white smoke from exhaust? Any white foam in the oil? Water doesn't just disappear. It must be going somewhere. Bad radiator cap letting coolant escape while driving? Any overheating?

Where is the fuel regulator kia sedona


check the turbo for failure and check the intercooler for cracks and leaks . check the hose clamps . have the tips of the injectors cleaned / replaced and if you want to blow the engine continue to use easy start. Diesels are compression ignition engines and that means the air is white hot at the point of injection of the diesel and any fuel substance introduced will spontaneous ignite and bend con-rods and crack pistons.

2012 kia sedona white smoke comes out of exhast when first started


White smoke is usually an indication of burning antifreeze and burning oil would have a more bluish tint to it and smell like burning oil. If it's a 2012, isn't it still covered by the KIA warranty though??

Kia Sedona oil light white smoke


Are you sure this is not the low oil pressure warning light, bet that it is. The white smoke may be from a blown head gasket, any shop can tell you just by the smell of the smoke, if it smells "sicky Sweet" then it is coolant being burned in the engine and you have big problems.
