Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 Kia Sedona. While driving, it suddenly stopped running. I was able to crank it back up, but shortly afterwards, it stopped again and would not restart. The mechanics have it now, but they do not have all the equipment needed to check fuel pressure. They have an indication that it might be the crank position sensor. Is that likely?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?

No. It just stops running

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sedona yourself? What have you tried so far?

Are you a bot?

Mechanic's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the mechanic more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have nothing else to add. Don't. I did not realize there was a charge to this.

Hmm. I thought I saw the gauge move, but I wasn't really concentrating on it.
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 19 days ago

when you turn the key to the on position can you hear the fuel pump running for a few seconds?

Customer reply replied 19 days ago
I did not notice. One thing to add. The mechanics who have it now state it will start and run for a bit (up to 45 minutes once) and then just stop.
Customer reply replied 19 days ago
I have a feeling they suspect the fuel pressure, but they do not have the equipment to measure it.
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 19 days ago

they need to monitor the fuel pressure to see if maybe the pump is overheating after running a while. if they do not have the proper equipment then I would have it taken somewhere else. every competent shop should have that type of equipment

They are competent, they just don't have the fittings for a Kia. It is not something they work on very often.
Customer reply replied 19 days ago
Thank you for your advice. I will discuss it with them.

If you have another idea, I appreciate it, but I think your thoughts match what the mechanics believe.
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 19 days ago

my thoughts do match theirs, but, without proving it, you are taking a chance on paying for a pump replacement and it not fixing the problem

I understand. I do want proof before sinking funds into it.
Customer reply replied 19 days ago
I was about to spend the money on the CPS, but you have prevented that mistake.
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 19 days ago

then they need to at least have a scan tool that reads fuel pressure. they can monitor the scan tool while the engine is running
