Question about 2003 Kia Sedona
Want to change #6 spark plug; where is it located and how do i replace it?
Make sure you have removed the main engine cover, and any other covers
or objects that maybe blocking the path.
Try using a 3/8" drive socket set with extensions and swivel joints to get better access into the spark plug area. If you are unable to get to them through the top of the engine then go underneath, but it will be easier from the top, even if you have to climb up on top of the engine. If you have got enough socket extensions and swivel joints you can almost get into anything. You just got to try and look at how do you use the tools you have to get into the area you need to get into
Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

In the center of each valvecover is a well with a wire in it each wire has a seal cap attached pull up and youll find a stem which goes down a tube this is part of the spark plug wire the plugs are at the bottom of this tube youll need a long adapter on your wrench and socket for this job and you can extract the plug using the wires stem

follow the spark plug wires up to the coil pack there is only one coil pack for your truck which has all the plug wires going to it.also replace your your plug wires.

although I am not familiar with this particular engine my son's Mazda Miata had oil in the plug holes and it only required a new valve cover gasket to fix it.

1. Pull the hood release lever located under the dashboard.
2. Walk around to the front of the car, reach under the hood, find the latch and squeeze it. Open the hood.
3. Find the spark plugs, located in a row along one side of the engine (on an in-line four-cylinder engine) and attached to thick wires, called spark plug wires. Cars with V-shaped engines (which can have four, six or eight cylinders) will have spark plugs and spark plug wires on both sides of the engine.
4. Change one spark plug at a time, always putting the plug wire back on before changing the next spark plug.
5. Pull off one spark plug wire where it attaches to the plug. There is a little rubber boot at the plug end of the wire; pull on this part. Pulling higher up on the wire can damage the spark plug wire and cause it to separate.
6. Blow or wipe away any dirt or debris around the spark plug. You do not want anything to fall into the cylinder while the spark plug is out.
7. With the spark plug socket and a ratchet, remove the spark plug by turning it in a counterclockwise direction. You may need an extension for your ratchet if the spark plugs are deep-set or not directly accessible. Ratchets with flexible heads are especially helpful for hard-to-reach spark plugs.
8. Check the spark plug to make sure it needs replacing. A good spark plug should be lightly coated with greyish brown deposits. If heavy deposits are present, if the spark plug is black or if the electrode or core nose are damaged, the plug needs to be replaced.
