    I did the same , got the dealer to change my spark plugs and they told me that my manifold had to be taken off ,,,,$400.00 later the van still does not work properly. It stalls at stop lights and rives up so high that I have to press very ******* the brake to hold it, then it stalls. It has been taken back and the dealer does not know what the problem is. Be careful on who does your work.

    I have a 2002 Sedona that keeps stalling, even when driving downtown. The service light is always on, and when I stop at a red light the engine rives up very high and then the engine stalls. I had the spark plugs changed and have had the vehicle to several dealers to get this problem fixed. Some say it is due to the seal around the manifold was not replaced and taking in to much air, others have no idea, even the Kia dealership. Please help.

If you want to see the three spark plugs on the back you have to lift your car and put on jack stand and follow the spark plugs wire under your engine. You have ignition coil set beside spark plugs for spare.

How many spark plugs are in a 2005 Kia Sedona

There are six plugs in the Sedona. The motor is turned 90 degrees from which way we are accustomed to seeing one in a vehicle..
First remove the six bolts (10mm) that hold the engine cover on. You also have to remove the oil cap to take this cover off.
The front three plugs and their corresponding coils are in the front and fairly accessible as you can follow the spark plug wires to them. It is best to disconnect the battery before doing this work.

You will have to remove the three corresponding coils to the front three sparkplugs. You use a 16mm spark plug socket to remove the spark plugs.

The back three plugs are under the intake manifold cover. This is a difficult and awkward removal to get the cover off, because the back bolts are very difficult to access. Please watch the video to follow the details to get it off. The next three sparkplugs are under this cover.

This video was a good example what to do with the plug and coil once removed for maintenance.

And, another girl mechanic!

I had this same problem at 113,000 miles on my Sedona and I replaced the spark plugs and wires and it took care of this missing. It's an expensive job unless you do it yourself. However, the check engine light came back on so I have to replace the o2 sensor also. Here is a link to a tutorial on how to change the spark plugs. This is the best information you will find for changing spark plugs on a Sedona.

I need a diagram to so me where to find the sparkplugs for a 2002 Kia Sedona Lx

The first three spark plugs are easy but the back three are not fun at all. You have to take the intake plenum off to get to the back three. It took me about 10 hours to finish the job. I don't even want to think about what the shop would have charged. Here is a link with the best directions you will find anywhere.

2002 kia sedona spark plug change

Correct, its called the Plenum.... And it has to be removed.. you can loosen MOST of the things hooked to it, such as electrical plugs and EGR valve,ect and then "flop" it over out of the way.. you will need a new gasket for it before reinstalling it..
Sounds complicated, but it isnt...

2002kia sedona changing spark plugs

Well, here it your delima. The intake manifold covers the back 3 plugs, You will need to replace those gaskets on the manifold as well. The only other thing I know is that there is a bracket on the back side of the motor. You must loosen it from the bottom. I would rather not see a novice do this with someone working closely with him.
The Timing Belt is probably an age or milage issue. A novice SHOULD NEVER attempt that. It the safest thing is to replace it. This way an old belt doesn't give out and do severe engine damage. I'm not saying it's going to happen. It's a gamble though.
That's the best advice I can give.
