Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: replace valve cover gasket

I have the same problem on a 2003 Town & Country. The cover for the front 3 cylinders is quite straight forward, but in order to do the rear cylinders I believe you are going to have to remove the cowling below the windshield. You will need a gear puller to remover the windshield wipers first, then remove the cowling. Than should give you more room to work. It's still not going to be easy, but it sure beats paying hundreds of $$$$ in labor charges.

Just take a picture of it with digital camera or phone. And start removing wires and hoses until they are all out of way of cover. Then remove the bolts all way around cover and pull straight up and it will come right off. If not use a flat head screw driver to prise it off. Clean old gasket off of valvecover and engine. then put it bak together. Tighten bolts slowly, start with ones in center ov it and work your way out. Just finger tight. Then snug, then torque em down. Not too tight as if tostrip the bolt or break it off. Cause it be very expensive. also write down everywhere each wire go's unless you can remember

2004 kia sorento wont shift past 25 mph why?


I believe your transmision gone bad and needs replacment or rebuild, Unless this a 4wd modelSsorento, if so, you have your 4wd turn on and on the low 4wd side in Lx models if this is a 4wd sorento ex, equipped with the auto/low 4wd knob. You might have the knob, or accidently shift the knob to the (low 4x4) position, and if you do, then the car is set only to run on the first gear for max tranction and to prevent your differential from overheating. This knob is located on your left side of the steering wheel, and if turned to the 4wd postion, it needs to be in the auto or 2wd poistion.

Vehicle bogs down when accelerating at low speeds


I would replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. Replace them ONE AT A TIME!! Do NOT mix up the firing order of the wires!! When you pull each plug look at it and see if it oil fouled. Some Kia's have an issue with leaking valve cover gaskets that can cause excessive amounts of oil to collect around one or more of the plugs which fouls them out and causes misfires. If this is the case, the only solution is to replace the gasket and the plugs. Please rate me on this answer.

Where is the head gaskets


This is not a good question to ask.....I take it that you must not be too mechanically inclined...no offense. is this a v6? A head gasket is between the head(s) and the block. If a head gasket is bad (blown), then it is a very major job to replace. And hoping that your head is not cracked, which is sometimes possible. It is like tearing the engine apart, except for the crank and pistons (bottom engine) head gasket is on the top half of the engine. I would estimate that this job would cost you over $1000. without cost of parts. ???
