Question about 2003 Kia Sedona
I am trying to remove the Cylinder head off a Kia Carnival (similar model to a Sedona) I have removed the 8 intake manifold fixings and the exhaust manifold and all the head bolts are removed - the head is loose but I cannot lift it off? Am I missing something?
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...

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.
The factory service manual is the only way to go.
Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)
Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs
Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs
Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs
