There are two in the back. One to each side of the two lines. Center bolt holds the two lines in. Hard to get to. I had to disconnect the exhaust flange there to get some access

Where is the expansion valve located on the 2004 KIA Sedona


Kia Sedona expansion FRONT valve located under dash, behind glove box, fan and coil. Evacuate freon first. Disconnect Freon lines from firewall., Lay right front seat back to flat horizontal position and lay on top or totally remove the seat for easier working access. Remove under dash cover, fan, glove box, coil housing, remove coil mounting bolts, remove old expansion valve. (Inspect old valve, if debris inside, blow out coil before installing new valve. If visible debris best to consider replacing REAR expansion valve and DRIER/FILTER in front of radiator too and blow out all lines and coils while servicing.) Use compressor oil to lubricate "O" rings on new FRONT or REAR expansion valve, install valve bolts, reinstall coil bolts to FRONT firewall or REAR frame, reconnect freon lines to firewall in engine compartment. Evacuate AC system, install freon (35 1/2 ounces, nominal 3 pounds), check system for leaks, check for proper operation, enjoy.

1996 chevy blazer what is the easiest way to change intake manifold gasket


there really isnt. you have to disconnect everything bolted to it and lift it off. I would leave everything bolted to it and just disconnect hoses and wires. Everything you unbolt from it you will have o reseal the bolts when you put them back in which means cleaning or replacing each one.

Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.
