2005 Kia Sedona Problems
A defective AC compressor clutch assembly can cause excessive noise or vibration when the air conditioning is on. Improved parts are available. Replacing the faulty clutch assembly does not necessitate replacement of the complete AC compressor or evacuation and recharging of the air conditioning system.
If the engine is excessively noisy on startup (after the engine has been off for several hours) and the noise lasts more than four or five seconds, turn off the engine and check for correct engine oil level. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Kia released an updated timing chain tensioner to solve this problem.

2005 Kia Sedona Recalls
In freezing conditions, water on the throttle cable may freeze, creating resistance to movement. The cable may stick and prevent the engine from returning to idle, causing the vehicle to maintain speed or accelerate. This can occur without warning and could cause a crash. Dealers will modify a protective sleeve around the cable to fix the issue. The recall began August 15, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-051.
On certain models equipped with alloy wheels, water may accumulate around the rear hub caps and damage the outer rear wheel bearings. The wheel bearings could fail without warning, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the rear hub caps and replace the rear outer bearings and/or hub assembly as needed. The recall began on June 13, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-049.
