startng problem only occurs during rainy weather no other problems engine runs smooth
The van will start fine when it is hot or cold. If you park it and go to start it about an hour later, it tries to crank but violently stops and all the dash lights go out. The the lights will come back on and it will try to crank again and does the same again. I smell gas like the engine is flooding as well. If we leave it alone for a few hours it will start right up. I have changed the coolant temp sensor and the throttle position sensor.
the door will not open from the inside
I had a battery supplier look up requirement and he said I needed a 500CCA per OE, but I had a air bag light come on and the dealer looked at battery and said I should have a 700CCA. Who is correct?

this is first time for gas pedal. Could it be frozen or corroded
Is there something else i can try if the fuel pump goes in the tank frist ?
The Sedona has 107k miles on it. It started doing this last September. I was leaving work, coasting to a stop sign, and it just quit. I turned the key and it started right up. I drove about 4 miles and while sitting at a red light it stalled again, but I was able to restart. Then, the next day, while driving down the high way on a 400 mile trip, it stalled and restarted on its own at 70 mph 3 or 4 different times. But, the latest occurance left me and my family stranded 100 miles from home in freezing temperatures and wouldn't restart until the two truck dropped it off. However, I'm now fearful to ever drive it anywhere. I've had people mention the fuel pump and others say a crankshaft position sensor. Please help! Thanks.
The heater in the back of the van stopped blowing hot air. This just recently happened in the last mth. Last winter it worked fine. My heater in the front of the van works just fine. My kids are freezing. Please help. What would cause this and would it cost alot to fix?
van starts shaking ans smell turn off and let set for a bit then drive again dose not do it all the time
what could be problem
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
worn out rear tire only from one side

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.
