Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
Havent cause dont have the money to fix
My best suggestion is to see if local wrecking yard has a catalytic converter (preferably a pair, 1 for each bank) from a newer wrecked Kia Sedona or similar vehicle. According to my manuals that cover Sephia/Spectra, the catalytic converters are connected to the exhaust system with bolts, and in some applications, springs and bolts. The Chilton/Haynes repair manual, which I was referencing, has step by step instructions in doing this repair. The best investment you can make is a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual that covers your make/model/year of vehicle. I do find it odd that the cat converter went bad on one side only, and on what would be considered a newer vehicle. I'm running the original cat converters in GM and Kia vehicles, and the newest one is 2002.

I have tried everything, but I am coming to the conclusion that I have a bad pcv letting in too much air. The concensus of how to fix it seems to be to clean the MAF with some electical cleaner or brake cleaner. Basically, you are getting too much air into the throttle body after the MAF or a dirty MAF.

To start with you have to do this:
With the engine cold, start the car and say after 30 to 40 secs. open the radiator cap.
Carefully and slowly, cause if the problem is either in the cylinder block or cylinder head this shows immediately as water would be compressed in the radiator ( even though the motor is still cold ).
If nothing happens and you would not notice any bubbles in the radiator, then we have to talk again.

normally it is the line between the compressor and the condenser..the metal to rubber hose connection under the silver wrap..this is a common problem that kia knows about...good luck

I assume by now you have this problem fixed, but if not, or for the benefit of others looking for help, try replacing the coil on the #5 cyl as well as the injector. Ours did same thing, except fault code was on #2 cyl, so I got the parts from local parts store for about $150 total, and completed the repairs myself on my wife's 2003 Sedona. Now i can start on the rear heater issues, the knocking sound coming from the LF tire area while in motion, and replacing all brake pads. 92,000 on the odo. I'll spend the extra $ and go with the Honda Odyssey next time.
