Question about Kia Sedona
Hi Les, You are obviously talking about a diesel powered vehicle, so here are the things which should be tried. If the engine is not cranking at normal cranking speed try another battery, or even a jump start from another vehicle. (Positive to positive and negative to negative). Try and see if it starts when cranking at normal speed after preheating (using the glow plug circuit in the normal way) If it still fails, take a test lamp and check that the glow plug are receiving power, if not check the fuse. If the fuse is good, disconnect the main power cable feed to the glow plugs and remove the bus connection which links the plugs and then take a heavy cable directly from the positive connection and flick the connector of each plug in turn,.If you see a spark the plug is working, if not that plug will be defective. Replace, reassemble and try starting again. if the problem remains make sure that there is no air in the system by removing the flexible rubber pipe on the output side of the filter housing and pumping the plunger which is on top of the housing up and down to make sure that the filter is free from air. If the delivery is weak after pumping you may need to replace the filter and maybe even the housing. If delivery is good with no trace of air you may need to look at major injector pump and injector service and calibration. It is advisable to replace the filters and carry ou regular servicing of the vehicle. If servicing has not been regular it may be a good idea to have the engine compression checked to make sure the pison rings are not worn and combustion pressure too low. Regards John .

it is located on the drivers side underneath the van. you have to remove it from the underside of the car. you will need a 17 millimeter socket or wrench. Remove the ground cable before attempting to remove the starter.

REMOVAL OF THE PLUGS:
Do not attempt any maintenance on spark plug if engine is hot.
1. Disconnect negative battery terminal.
2. Carefully remove high-tension leads.
3. Use compressed air to blow any dirt or debris from around spark plug hole.
4. Check that spark plug fits squarely in spark plug socket and remove spark plug.
Raise a vehicle and install SST(OK552 131 001) in order to replace cylinder 2, 4, 6 spark plug.
1. Install spark plug into cylinder head.
Tightening torque : 18~22lb-ft (25~30N·m, 2.5~3.0kg-m)
2. Reconnect high-tension leads.
3. Reconnect negative battery cable.
Hope this helps and simple to understand. Good luck

I'm not familiar with the Sedona but it's very likely that it is much easier to do the plugs when the engine is disassembled for the belt job. If the plugs are due fairly soon anyway, it would save you a lot of money if you just pay for the plugs now and you don't have to pay for all the labor to get at that area of the engine again.
