Question about 2002 Kia Sedona

2 Answers

I was told that my parking brake on my 2002 Kia Sedona is not engaging properly, though there is good tension on the line. I've replaced the rear drum brake pads, and adjusted the parking brake cable that runs from the front to the rear brakes. After all this, the problem is still occurring, and if pushed with the parking brake engaged and the shifter in neutral, it will roll. Any suggestions?

The parking brake pads may be wore out. Some vehicles have pads on the inside of the rotor. It is like the old style drm brake's.

Cable may be seizing in the sheath due to corrosion. Remove the drums to see if shoes move outward when someone pulls the lever. If not, remove the cables from the shoes, raise the ends, and shoot oil into the sheath. Break the cable loose inside the sheath and continue oiling until the cable moves freely in the sheath.

SOURCE: Sluggish Transmission when cold

You need to change the transmission fluid and filter as soon as possible. Being sluggish when cold is a sign of a very clogged up filter.

SOURCE: 2002 kia 4x4 wont go into 4 wheel drive

Hello
A VERY COMMON FAULT!
Kia us a dim design that works on air, so the light on the dash may light up green...mine does...but no 4x4.
Test one, look inside the engine bay,(2Litre petrol) on your left hand side, to the left of the actual engine is the solenoid device that "switches on" the vacuum to the front hubs. This is easier that you would think. If you look at the left side of the engine, there are two pipes coming out (left side) one is thick (break system. DONT touch) one is thinner and soft rubber. Follow this tube, it goes into a small black cannister which is a resvoir and one way valve...the tube then outputs into another device (solenoid) which has 2 wires on. The tube then splits under this in two. The test is simple, with the engine running, and 4 wheel drive engaged pull the tube apart after the solenoid. Put your finger there you should feel a nice strong ****. If it does **** put it back on. If it does not **** it needs to be removed and cleaned. This is simple to unbolt and all you do is pull the rubber bung of the bottom, and the two tubes and spray break cleaner inside. reassamble until you get to feel the vaccum.

test 2 Now look behind each wheel, you will see a thick hose wrapped in a spring, this is the break system, do not touch this. There is a thinner flexible hose attached behind the wheel, you will notice that these have no securing system just push fit. Remove each of the in turn and test for vacuum.

Leaks here are common and easy to fix.

The bad news if you have vacuum, and still no 4 wheel drive one or both front wheel hubs has a leak, and the bad news is, it needs a garage to fix it, and to replace the seal a £5 part you have to ruin a £100 part.

Test the vaccum, pray. Otherwise ask, doe you really need to spend £250 to sort this?

Good luck

If there is 12 volts at the compressor,then the coil on the clutch is bad.Most of the time,compressor with coil/clutch,is cheaper to purchase than just the clutch.I hope this helps you.

Does it matter what wheel you bleed first on a kia sedona 2002. I have told by a friend to bleed the passenger rear 1st the driver rear then passenger front then driver front is that right.


When bleeding brakes always start at the furthest point from the master cylinder. So start at the passenger's rear and then the next furthest point, the driver's rear, then passenger front and last driver's front. Hope this helps.

Parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds


parking brakes are adjusted at and with the rear brakes,..(drum brakes that is),.....as you adjust the rear brakes to have a slight drag as you spin tire, the parking brake is adjusted at the same time,...they work together with that one adjuster,....as you pull on the parking brake, it makes the brake shoes spread apart just as they do when you push the brake peddle,..by adjusting the rears you'll also find that the brake peddle feels better too.
