Hi there i have just bought a 2002 sedona 2.9 diesel, before buying i checked the car all over inside and out and test drove it for around 15 mins, it was perfect not one issue so i snapped it up:) unfortunatley on my way home about 30 mins later i suddenly lost power:( i noticed the temp gauge had risen to 3/4, the engine still sits at idel and drives with reduced power, if i let it cool down it runs fine again, the coolant level is at full and oil is fine, being a newby to kia's i'm a bit puzzled and gutted as i really like the car and dont want to get rid of it, anybody know what the problem could be? any comments would be appreciated thanks.

where did you check the coolant level? In the expansion bottle or by removing the rad cap?

Assuming you have full ,levels of glycol additive coolant...

Remove oil filler cap whilst engine running & hot.
Any blow back of oil?

You may need to decarbonise the cylinder rings...
