I have a 2007 Kia Sedona and had a similar problem that I'm not 100% sure was fixed. On our first long drive after buying it used with about 48k miles, after about 1 hour driving on a freeway with some incline up, it felt like the transmission was slipping. At times it was serious enough that we had to pull over to the side because we slowed down so much, usually on a hill. It also seemed to go away after "resting" for an hour or so, and then the problem would return. Eventually things got so bad that the van "gave out" in an intersection immediately after exiting the freeway and an engine light came on. We managed to coax the van out of the intersection, not until after the light had turned red and cars were swerving around us. We then pulled over and kept the engine running and heard a klunk as we stopped and put it in park. We managed to limp home that evening (a Sunday with shops closed).
The dealer said the problem was a cracked fuel vacuum tube or something like that.
However, after it has been fixed, the van feels like 1) there is a lot of engine or transmission drag (my main motivation for being on this site), 2) seems to get poor gas mileage (need to verify with measurements) and 3) sometimes seems to slip or be sluggish when putting the foot on the gas at low speeds.
I'm just starting my research on this, but wanted to get this down "on the record" for what it might be worth to others.

#45 of 50 2005 Kia Sedona Tranny problems
Nov 05, 2011 (2:21 pm)
I have a 05 Sedona with 100k on it. The transmission makes a noise almost like a small jackhammer at all different speeds. We are now haveing a problem with what seems like it is slipping in and out of gear. My rpm gauge will drop down to almost 1000 rpm at 70 mph, and the van feels like it has come out of gear. It does this normally at a high speed, but has now started doing it at lower speeds as well. It doesnt seem to be 'sluggish' on take off or while driving. Just at high speeds........ANY HELP WILL BE APPRICIATED

I have the same prob, it only has less then 70,000 on it...I just had to replace the Heater Core lines, and when I took it in to have it replaced they said there was a knocking noise and that they thought it was low on oil, well it was not, its a Rod, I think that its broke...What did Kia do for you? They ever fix that for you? They are wanting to charge me 2100 just for the part., Not even for labor..Any advice?

I just replaced my Kia's Heater Core lines, that cost over 600 dollars for the repair.Now I have a knocking noise which I think is a rod that is broke..I know that you have had this up for a while, but what did they do for you, as I can not find these parts any where to fix myself..I am stuck..Its still drivable as I have driven many vehicals that have broken Rods, but this one is under 70,000miles on it..They are wanting t2100 for the repair at the dealership..They fix it for you since low miles on it??Thanks for what ever info you have for me..
