Engine runs as usual

Got 2006 Kia Sedona inspected on Friday, hit with a bill for $745 to replace right front wheel bearing and a new batter because of problem with frequent non-start of van. Saturday morning, started van, backing out of driveway and ABS and ESC OFF lights come on and there is vibration and pulsating in brake upon pressing of brake pedal. Van back at mechanic on Monday in which they claim that right front wheel speed sensor was going bad, which was caused by old wheel bearing that went bad, causing the axle to be loose and rattle around causing the speed sensor to start to go bad, but would not have known it until the replacement of the wheel bearing made the right front tight causing the speed sensor to get readings kicking the ABS light on. Cost to replace this is $138. Get van home and immediately upon restarting, Check Engine Light comes on. So now what? Can anyone shed some light on this BS?

The squeeky noise is slight and only occurs occasionally, usually when its wet or cold outside and is not always noticeable and has not affected the driving of the car. The sound is directly beneath the steering wheel and occors when I turn the wheel, but not always. Can you tell me the possible causes and potential costs for repair? Thank you so much.

I am not sure if it is one of the two side struts or the single one. The motor works fine. I might be able to fix it myself but if not, any idea of the cost?

the parts store can only pull up a tension pully and they look the same. are they interchangeable or are they different.
the idler pully is wore out and is making this high pitch screaming sound while its running and the faster you go the louder it gets

brake valve

worn out rear tire only from one side

front brakes

The steering on my 2005 kia sedona seems slightly stiff when turning either left or right. What possible problems would cause this to occur, and what would be the estimated cost of each possiblity. Thank You

It does not make this sound while driving. It started making this sound about a week ago. It has 43,000 miles on it.

When the temperature outside is moderately cold the van will display the check engine light along with the traction control light and not allow throttle inputs. I have to turn the vehicle off and on, then it will be ok for a minute or 2, and continue doing this for up to 5 minutes. Once the van gets really warmed up it stops, however the check engine light will stay on .

The stripping is located on the liftgate door itself not on the body. Can a replacment be bought and what is the name of part. Leaking when it rains. Causing the storage area to get wet.

have a engine nooise and want to verify that the tensioner bearing is the problem

Only occasional issue, and does not get the check engine light to come on (usually). Only happens off the line when I've had a warm start with in the last 10 or 15 minutes. When I do get the light it is a "lean bank two" code. Fuel pressure is good... This is an engine problem, not trans slip or anything else. Good gas has always been used, maint. is up to snuff. Runs like a spotted ape before and after the shutter. Sometimes the shutter is just a two hit gallop, other times it is 5 or more jerks all the way across a 60 foot intersection. Never has died during shutter and always runs fine after.

I have number 5 cylinder needing the coil changed but don't know what the firing order is.

Both sliding doors have difficult time opening and closing.Mechanics took a look and said both doors need new hinges

need to know what transmission oil I could use and if I have to replace any transmission filter.

these lights just come on but i dont know what they are

Just started happening, check engine light came on

I guess there is a plastic gear that the metal gear on the motor wears out. I know nothing about auto repair and the mechanic said that the only way to get it fixed is to replace the valve assembly which requires removing the intake manifold. Then the mechnic said something about ordering a plenium and I was lost.

It started out with the air condition not working after 10 minutes of driving. After engine cools the air will come on again and quite after 10 minutes.Now the car overheats.

It was working, blowing cold air, and when I was 45 mile from home it just quit. It had been making noise before it quit. Could this have been the clutch going out?

I was recently in a car accident and was hit near the rear passenger side and was told that my rear axle needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair exceeds the value of the van.

571 A & 504 b are the codes

Rep says she has seen the same problem before and its the fuel pump. How do they know it is not a mounting bracket or a loose bolt? I have a service appt next Wed and I want to be able to ask some questions. Thank You...Ray

I have had my van in several times for the same problem. Twice this misty steam has come out from the hood, then the ac quits. It starts and stops and it's usually when it is the most hot outside. I have had it charged several times...they say there is no leak. It makes funny sounds now and then...they cannot find what is wrong with it. I find that extremely odd. Any ideas?

Full of freon, compressor is working, checked the fuses but it will not cool. Only hot air blows out.
