  1. LED headlight recomendations?

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    Your failure rate is high. I would think something else is going on. It may be possible you have recieved poor quality bulbs but I would look for a poor wiring connection causing more heat build up than normal.
  2. 08 Sedona - Can't remove alternator bolt. Might be stripped sleeve nut.

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I am not sure of the set up....but.....Try to pry with a small flat blade screw driver along the edge of the bolt so as you turn it you are pulling it back. If you have access.
  3. OEM Parts source

    General KIA Non-Model Specific Discussion
    Does anyone have a good online source for OEM Kia parts?
  4. Oil Level too high on 2010 Sedona

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    From another website I got an answer that originated from a Kia tech saying some cars with cartridge filters can drain oil from the filter back in to the oil pan giving the impression the oil is over filled. Has anyone else seen or heard of this? I will also do an oil analysis to confirm...
  5. Oil Level too high on 2010 Sedona

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I have noticed the oil level is above the high point on the dip stick a few weeks after an oil change. It is not water or anti freeze. I am suspicous it is gas. I suspect the fuel injectors are not sealing and gas is leaking into the crank case after it shuts down. Are fuel injector issues...
  6. Roof rack recommendations

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I am resurrecting this post as I am not getting closer to needing some roof racks. I like the Thule. The Yakima are nice too. Both seem to be priced around the same. I am looking at some used Thule Cross Road 450 feet with square load bars. If anyone has these are the 50" long bars adequate...
  7. Floor jack - where do you put it.

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    When you say a PLAIN hockey puck you mean no slot is cut into it?
  8. Floor jack - where do you put it.

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    You cut a 3/16 wide slot in it on a table saw or with a router? Works ok and not a worry about it spitting under load?
  9. Floor jack - where do you put it.

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I don't like to put a floor jack pad on the factory jacking points as they tend to bend and damage the pinch welds and rail. The sedona does not have alternate jacking points. Where do you put your floor jack for the front and back. Has anyone every used a product like this to protect the...
  10. sedona sudden pulling when accelerating

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    If after checking your tire pressure and it still does it check the tie rods for play. While your are at it check the entire front end components. Bushings in the control arms, ball joints, inner and outer tie rods. Good Luck.
  11. Which repair manual to get for Kia Sedona 2006: Chilton vs Haynes?

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I agree 100%. Although you can run into a few exceptions where the Chilton is very good. I once had a Chilton manual for a Dodge Intrepid/Chrysler New Yorker etc. It was thicker and more detailed than usual. It was pretty good for a 3rd party manual. In the case of the Sedona I would go with...
  12. Oil filter question...

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I have picked up a Purolator One filter which does come with 2 O-rings and an aluminum washer for the drain plug. The large O ring is a silicone orange material. The top cover on the filter housing is plastic and has a hex fitting. I have not changed the oil yet but It looks rather large...
  13. Sticking side doors

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    It is good maintenance practice to spray all of rubber seals with silicone spray from time to time.
  14. Drivers door lock actuator -2010

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I just got around to doing it and you are right, it is not all that bad. The worst part was that gooey black adhesive that hold the vapor barior in place. Got black goo on my pants. Not sure how to easily get it off. I would advise anyone to wear gloves and change them out as they get soiled...
  15. Change out donut for full size spare - 2007

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    Let us know. I will say I have steel wheels and they are heavy. Just guessing I would say it will hang 5 inches lower plus or minus a bit.
  16. Drivers door lock actuator -2010

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I was hopping for a short cut. I did see a Youtube video of a guy doing the same an other 2010 kia model of and he did just that. He unscrewed the module bolts nearest the lock actuator and was able the manuver the actuator out. He did not show it he just described it. But If you can't do...
  17. Drivers door lock actuator -2010

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    Has anybody changed out the drivers door lock actuator assy on a 2010? I was looking in the Haynes manual and it looks involved. They instruct you to remove the large sheet metal module that hold everything in. It includes disconnecting the glass from the window regulator. Just looking at it...
  18. Snap On code reader

    Do it Yourself
    My local auto electronics shop has a very expensive Snap On Code reader. He says it reads all codes for most makes and models and can change settings. I asked the tech if he can program my Kia FOB. He told me he has not done a KIA before but has used it to program the FOB on other makes of...
  19. Which power steering fluid should I use for Kia Sedona EX 2006?

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I am familiar with the Ravenol from working on my VW. It is German made synthetic PSF and very expensive in the US. But It states it meets Kia specifications. Another option on the table. Thanks for sharing.
  20. Are ATF transmission coolers standard? Are they only w tow pkg? Can U Bypass them?

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    Good Luck. If after your next drain and refil you still do not find the shifting smooth to your liking I would recommend trying a Lubeguard additive. I used it once in a Ford AXOD transmission that had harsh shifts and it did smooth it out. I drove that car for another 150k miles before the...
