Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

Open Question

My kia sedona started to shut down because I thought it was just bad gas I would put in 7 gallons so in the morning to work it started fine so drove to work then at lunch I would leave work and about five minutes later it would just shut down but once I got it started it ran just fine then when it was getting low on fuel I put gas in and it just started happening more frequently but would wait a while to start it again it seemed to be getting to much gas and flood out now I can only start it for five minutes or more and it shuts of I had a code reader and it said the things that were happening and then it said it could be two things the mass air flow sensor or the throttle position sensor you can really smell gas from the tail pipe could that be the problem.

SOURCE: 02 sedona hard time starting and mass airflow sensor issues

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: i think i need to change the crankshaft position sensor.

yes the crankshaft position sensor can cause all these problems at once. they are fairly simple to change and not a really expensive part if you want to check it though you can unplug it and hook a multimeter to it and check ohms as someone cranks the engine. should see a square wave as in 0 ohs to infinity ohms and repeat.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Kia Sedona... My tail lights are not

Try replacing the bulbs. If that doesn't work, check the fuse and replace if necessary. If that doesn't work find the relay and replace it. If that doesn't help, then you have a break in the electrical system somewhere.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!
