You need to have the code read. Even if the light goes out the code will stay around a few on-off cycles after. Any good auto store will usually do this for free. It sounds like a bad knock sensor, but you need to have the code read to know for sure. Good luck.

Why is your 2005 Kia Sedona shaking so much?

I had the same problem: at 50-55Mph, when accelerating, the engine would start shaking. When I released the acceleration the vibration went away. Also, it would shake badly when driving up hill and accelerating. Went to a mechanic and changed both catalytic converters (the first one melted and clogged the second one) did a complete tune-up, wheel balance and alignment. He also changed the rear engine mount. However, the van was still shaking but it was 50% better already. Next, he changed ALL engine mounts (supports) AND the right axle (drive shaft). Now the van runs like a champ and I could not be happier! I hope this helps. If you can do your own replacements you can save a lot of money!
