Kia sedona 2005 when driving feels like transmission is skipping, hesitating. What is doing on? Just had new transmission put in 7 months ago.


When does it skip and hesitate? While your driving or taking off or turning a corner?

It sounds like an automatic.

Trying to change the spark plugs and can not find them


If you look under the hood, you will see a BLACk cover under the intake tube.this black cover has 6 bolts and has to come off..its alot of work to take everything off..under this black cover are 2 COILS with 2 spark plugs under them.
DO NOT REMOVE the plugs with the egnine hot .this car has aluminum heads and you will strip the plugs.

The other 2 wires can be more easily seen and have a black boot on them..under the 2 black rubber boots are the other 2 spark plugs.. 

Lots of Kia sportages misfire and skip and the check engine lite will come on..usually its a bad wire or plug..very common in these cars..also, if the VALVE cover gasket LEAKS at all, oil will get into the boots or wires or plugs and cause the car to skip and idle rough or MISFIRE.. 
Good luck and hope this helps.
