Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

Hard starting sometimes

Minivan never fails to start but sometimes i have to try for about 5 to 7 times before it finally starts. this does not occur at all times but it is mostly after the van has been off for a a hour or longer. sometimes it starts on the 1st try even after its been off overnight. i was thinking fuel filter but i can't find it.

Recently my check engine light came on. Shortly after that I noticed that my car was leaking fluid. Since then, other problems like dying while driving and problems turning over have occurred.

Any check engine lights. As far as the liquid leaking what type of fluid is it. Could be a coil pack that is going bad. Could be O2 sensor problems. Could be maf sensor, tps or iac sensor. See if you can get the vehicle scanned and update this with the codes

2003 Range rover won't start

Very likely the fuel pump has failed, if you mean you tapped on the gas tank
and it finally started. When a pump fails, sometimes rapping on the tank will re-energize it briefly or maybe even a couple of times before it gives out for good.
If you were tapping on the gas pedal, though, and it just started, your mechanic will have to look at it. Too many electrical fault possibilities, Scott, it needs proper diagnosis to find the p[roblem.

Mitsubishi L300 FB diesel engine is ok to start when the engine is cool when driving it for several minutes and engine is getting hot and put off the engine and restart it the engine fail to start. Then...

The problem seems related with the fuel pump as the fuel pressure seems to drop off when the pump is hot. So when the fault occurs try an cool the pump and see if the engine starts. If so have the pump checked and calibrated for the right pressure.

Can anti-theft be reset.Lite on car won't start

Try to start car. When it fails leave the key in the on position. You will see the Theft System light flashing. Light will flash for 10 minutes, stay on and then go off. Turn key to off position, wait 10 seconds and start your car.

Don't waste your time or money taking this problem to a dealership because Chevy refuses to issue a recall on this problem. I went to the dealership 5 times. I wound up paying for 2 key cylinders, a BCM module, an ECM module. I finally took it in when the theft system light came on while driving. The problem was in the fuse & relay center underneath the hood. It was all corroded so it was replaced. No problems since then.

Engine had a hard time turning over.

Have you had your battery specifically checked for a dead cell. Your difficulty turning over and occassionally working sounds like a dead or dying cell. Had the same problem in my Minivan and Sams club checked my battery and determined it was a "dying cell" by the battery showing less cold cranking amps then it was supposed to have. Have an autoparts store double check it just in case. Good luck.

1999 Saab 9-5 doesnt want to start

Our 2003 9-5 started doing something similar; it was the fuel pump failing. The pump finally died and the car wouldn't start, period. If you'd like to try the filter first, it's in a little plastic cage near the passenger-side rear wheel under the car. Pretty simple to change out.

Not Starting

I have a 1997 Town and Country minivan and it would not start nor would the odometer lights in the dash come on .It would start and immediately die. took it finally to the dealership and they said it was the BCM fixed that for $899.20 it worked for one day then back to normal as soon as I got it running again by jumping it which sometimes worked not always i took it back too the dealership and of course the whole time they had it it started right up everytime. finally it didn't and they checked it again they then said it was the cluster which they purchased a used one for $250.00 plus labor this time it cost me $503.74. And I have had not one problem with it it starts every time and drive great. So my advice is to take it to the dealership and ask them to check your BCM and your Cluster. Good Luck I am now happy with my Town and Country again. I
