Hello Kia People !

My Kia is a Sedona LX  2902cc 16v manual diesel, on a '52 plate.

The problem is a major fuel leak.

If I start the car from cold and look underneath - no leak.  Drive to the shop and back - no leak.

Get her on the dual carriageway properly warmed up - with some RPM and a slight hill,  the 'teapot' lights up on the dash. If I persist with the light on, she cuts out, dripping with fuel (this has happened 3 times, in the 2 weeks I have owned the little darling).    But then  restarts without any difficulty.  

If I quickly back off throttle so light goes out, she does not cut out, but if I then pull into layby & leave engine running - LOADS of fuel dripping from 3 / 4 places.  These places are in the approximate area of  'somewhere below the fuel filter'

I will continue to investigate when / what triggers the leaking etc, but if anyone recognises the symptoms, you could save me a lot of trouble.

Thanks for reading.

Hi yes had a similar problem it was the small o rubber seal on the sediment  sensor/drain screw which screws into the bottom of the fuel filter.
