To change the back 3 plugs you need to separate the upper intake pluenum, and 2 rear support brackets from the intake. You do not need to completely separate the intake or fully take it apart (leave throttle body and cables attached and move it towards the front of the van. If you are careful you will not have to replace the gasket for the intake. The bolts for the 2 rear brackets are 12MM.if you get a mirror in behind you will see all the bolts.

My 2002 sedona just started the brake and batt light coming on. I also just had front brakes put on, but if you put a volt meter on the battery you will notice that the battery stop charging. I look at what it might take to replace the alternator. I ain't even going to try it, plus I'm not sure its the problem. Any answers?
#4537 of 4589 Looking for structs and struct questions, please.
May 01, 2008 (2:10 pm)
I have a Sedona '02. Looking for a pair of struts and seems unavailable after market. I have google and found nothing. Would you please advice me where to get them in reasonable price. Preferable online. May be a part number or something specific that can help me spot it. Do I need to get the strut mounts and dampers?
Another question, I have reading some discussion on struts vibration posted during early '07 in this forum. Is there a fix for that yet? The problem seems getting worse.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
#4538 of 4589 Kia can't fix my car
May 03, 2008 (1:17 pm)
I have had my sedona for past 5 years and one day car wouldn't start.
I took the car to local Kia dealer and they started diag. my car. After working on it for past week, they told me that they have put in about over $1000 of labor in the car. They starting telling me that it is do to using ARCO gas and caused the engine to clog. Well after further review they are now telling me that they do not know what is wrong with the car and they can not fix it. Has anyone had any problem like this? How can Kia not fix their own car? Now my insurance wants to come out to see if car needs to be totaled. If anyone had any experience like this please help. Thanks

May 29, 2008 (11:54 am)
I have a 03 Sedona and do agree with you that the RA07 Hankook are CRAP! Had a blow out at 41,000, tires were rotated every 5000 miles, had plenty of tread left of them but the sidewall gave out. I ended up getting Michelin Weatherwise, found out the T rating is sufficient as the Gross weight of the van is still less than the T rating of each tire times 4. I only found Prielli to be the only H rated tire I could get, but was about $150 a piece. Never buy Hankook or Kumho, they are the same company, from what I heard. The Michelins gave me better MPG on the highway (25) and so far so good at 12,000 miles on them, still looking new.

#4541 of 4589 2005 Kia Sedona Van (Timing belt/gear)
May 29, 2008 (12:16 pm)
Does anyone know if the 2005 has a timing belt, chain, or what?
When we bought our van, the dealer told us that most likely it would need timing work around 70-75,000 miles. We are at 60,000 now and would like to know if anyone else had this work done around the 70,000 mile mark?

2005 Sedona has a timing belt!!!!! In fact we just had my sister-in-law`s Sedona done,at 56500 miles. A little early but a bit of insurance since she goes around the country with it.Read your owners manual,it states Calif. Sedones don`t have to get it done until 105,000 miles. This engine is a interference engine so if the belt goes so does your engine. It`s what ever chance your willing to take.

Just what makes the Sedona timing belt on vans sold in California last longer than a timing belt in the rest of the country?? You actually believe that there are 2 different types of timing belts? To me it is just a gimic. If it will last 105k in California, why won't it last that long in the rest of the country?
