Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2004 Kia Sedona died while going down the road a day ago, I tried to restart it and it would start back but when I put my foot on the gas pedal it would die, it eventually would not even hit like it wanted to start. The number one coil was arcing off the side of the motor so I replaced it with a new one but it still will not try to start, it just turns over without hitting. Why?
It sounds as though you have ignition. Try a shot of starter fluid an see if the engine tries to start. If it sounds like it wants to start, you can at least narrow it down to the fuel delivery system. Let me know.

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.

if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

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.
