What would cause no compression what so ever,we have replaced the head gasket.

The Kia engine has two overhead camshafts that have to be properly aligned when installing the cylinder head. If you didn't get the timing marks on the cam pulleys as well as the crankshaft pulley lined up the valves will hit the pistons the first time you crank it over. If the valves hit the pistons, they will bend and no longer seal [no compression]. For instance, if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running here is a picture of the result [also no compression]:
From the next picture you can see how close the valves are to the pistons:

My 2004 kia sadona is leaking oil from the black pluge on right side top of engine. i taped it back in an it keeps pushing it out.what can i do to fix it

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The only way to fix it for sure is by taking the head off and fixing the seal. The seal is probably busted. You neec to check the bolts though first and make sure they are tight. They may be loose. If not, you will probably need the seal fixed.

I have 2002 kia sedona the problem is that it wont rev above 2750 revs and there is a loss of power,i took it on the motorway yesterday and it wouldnt go above 70 it seems like some sort ov safty decice...

this could possibly be an air leak, when I say that what I mean is it's possible that you have a vacuum hose come off it's fitting or a damaged hose check all hose's are secure and not split perished or trapped, think back have you done any work in the engine compartment recently if the answer is yes, that's the area to look in, it's so easy to catch a small hose so it becomes disconnected, have you noticed any oil residue on top of the radiator water or water going down and you have to constantly top it up or is their any white smoke coming from the exhaust whilst driving or is the engine boiling water, a the signs relate to a head gasket leak or blown, unfortunately the Kia Sadona, do tend to blow head gaskets not ever body suffers this but the majority do this a caused by the cylinder head warping over a period of time and the head needs to be removed and skimmed.

Good Luck

It could be an air leak. Check for bleed valves in the cooling system on top of the engine.

Old hoses could have collapsed internally. Replace radiator hoses.

Check connection to temperature sender- could be gauge.
