Question about 2005 Kia Sedona

Open Question

Had belt replaced on my 2005 KIA Sedona V6. Now when I start the engine and first put the transmission in drive or reverse I get a rumbling noise until I increase RPM up to about 1000. After driving a short distance the noise is not there any longer even at the lower RPM (about 700 or 800 -idling in gear). Also my tests show that warming up the engine (belt) for about five minutes removes the noise. One more test: When I am in gear and the noise is there, I can make the noise go away by merely increasing the the RPM to about 1000 with my foot on the brake. What's the problem?

SOURCE: at about 1500 rpm vibrates but stops as it passes 1500rpm

Obviously a couple possibilities here. Just trying to help. Most commonly motor mount getting worn out will do this. I found statements made about some kia's needing a new crankshaft pulley and bolt for similar condition but not necesarily your engine. Youd have to call kia on that one. Hope I helped. Thanks

Kia sedona 2005 when driving feels like transmission is skipping, hesitating. What is doing on? Just had new transmission put in 7 months ago.

When does it skip and hesitate? While your driving or taking off or turning a corner?

It sounds like an automatic.

My sedona shakes when we press the gas pedal down, but stops when we let off the gas. We recently had the belts replaced and the problem started just after this. could this be a cv joint problem or...

most likely mount problem either trans. mnt or motor mount. if in gear holding brake in drive or reverse motor moves bad motor mount.. hope this helps!!

It's normal for belts to loosen up a little after installation. I'd check the belt and re-tighten until there's no slack. A slipping belt would certainly cause the issue you have. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck!
