Question about TYC 02-05 03 04 Kia Sedona 3.5l V6 Cooling Fan Assembly In Box 2004 2005

2 Answers

I have 02 kia sedona that runs rough at idle nd dies when i put it in gear and give it gas.

Last time i drove it it was sputtering real bad and dieing when i drove it. pumped the gas pedal repaetedly to get it to restart. then it died and woldnt start. although it would keep trying then it had a real strong odor in car after that that i cant explain. left it sit for month or so and went to tinker with it. vanstarted and was running at idle but if i give it gas it seams to want to cut out if i let of and pump it it will rev up to limit. when i put it in to gear it runs worse and will die if i keep giving it gas. but if i put it back in gear it will stay running. havent checked code will do that tommarow. step dad who use to work on cars thinks it sonds like it may need a tune up. any ideas

In my opinion:
1.) fuel filter
2.) spark plugs (change, or clean if clogged)
3.) fuel pump (hope not, this is quite expensive)

Hope I could help. Try it, 1.) + 2.) are not more than 50 bucks + 20 to 60 minutes, depending how experienced you are...

Do the simple thing first, change the fuel filter, if that doesn't fix it, then you'll have to check fuel pressure to make sure it's in spec.

    If it has not port, then you'll have to disconnect and go thorugh the fuel high pressure side. When you unhook it, there will be residual fuel pressure, just put a shop towel over it so it doen't spray you. You should have an adapter in your fuel pressure check kit to fit the end.

  • willy15 Dec 02, 2014

    I just noticed you said it had a code stored. What is the code?

  • terrance
    terrance Dec 16, 2014

    yes po122 which was on there twice for same scan and po102. po122 is throttle/ pedel position circuit a low current and po102 mas air circuit a low current.nd week ago went nd it started nd ran rough at idle for half hour. but when i gave it gas it would almost cut immediately but if i let of nd give it gas i could get it to rev limit. but in gear itwould run worse nd die if i gave it gas nd would run at idle agian after that. also it shifts down out of 4th into 3rd. so i just drove in 3rd for few months. then reverse went out. code said under drive slinoid vale system any ideas hear its limp home mode. fluid is browner red not the bright red. was told flush would correctthat. any ideas

  • willy15 Dec 16, 2014

    First change the fuel filter, then you need to check fuel pressure. If you don't have the tools to check the fuel pressure, you'll have to take it to a shop. After you've done both, then we'll move on to the codes.

    k i will figure out where fuel filter is nd get that changed tommarow or next day. a

  • willy15 Dec 17, 2014

    The reason for this, is I stongly believe your issue is fuel related. Please let me know when the filter and pressure have been checked.

    i also wanted to add that i went over there today nd tried stsrting put but it wouldnt even try to pop nd start like it normally does so i pulled out the sparkplug

  • willy15 Dec 17, 2014

    Your commment was cut off. Was there any fuel on the plug you pulled or was it wet with fuel?

  • terrance
    terrance Dec 17, 2014

    and it was soaked with fuel and i noticed the boot under the coil over is i can see carbon marks from where the spark is jumping so im also gonna change those. also i has a bad battery in it so ive had jumper cables hooked to intrying to start it could those codes be from bad battery? but i will figure how to test fuel presser and put fuel filter in it nd get back to you. also got few questions on transmission problem but i will wait nd see if inget it running agian. i think it may be in limp mode but not sure i can tear apart nd replace anything been working on cars over 15 years just not the best at diagnostic

  • willy15 Dec 17, 2014

    If your battery is bad or has low voltage, nothing works and it will through various codes. Put your DVOM on the battery and make sure you have at least 12.8 Volts without it started. If not you're battery needs charging completely before proceding.

My 03 kia sedona starts up and will idle for 30 or 40 minutes and die out ad start up again and run a few more minutes nd die again then not start for a few hours

Change the fuel filter and see it that helps. It sounds like a fuel supply problem, and the filter is the least expensive most likely place to start.

My 2002 kia sedona won't idle until warms up, dies when put into gear ...any ideas??

Is the check engine light on? you could have a bad ignition fail sensor, TPS sensor, or bad o2 sensor. it could also be a bad mass air flow sensor or a vacuum leak. without a code to help pin point the problem I'd start by checking those things first. Maybe try unplugging the mass airflow sensor and start it up and see if anything changes.

Sounds like you might have bad O2 sensors, leaking fuel injector O rings or a bad fuel pressure regulator. Check that the vacuum hose to the pressure regulator is connected and no cracks or holes in it. Any check engine light?
