SOURCE: diagram of how to change spark plugs on a 2003 kia

Hi there...i don't have room to post the complete diagrams here, but i can walk you through the steps. It's a little harder for a do it yourselfer than most cars, because the intake manifoild has to come off---one of the reasons a shop charges so much too...and a proper set of tools is very helpful. Your manual will have pictures, to help you identify the parts i describe here...ok u ready?

Take off the plastic engine cover and set aside. Don't lose the the little acorn nuts.

1. Remove the air intake hose connected to the throttle body.


2.

Remove the accelerator and cruise control cables.

3.

Remove the engine coolant hose and throttle body.

4.

Remove the P.C.V. hose and brake booster vacuum hoses.

5.

Disconnect the vacuum hose connections.

6. Remove the surge tank stay.

7.

Bleed off the pressure in the fuel pipe line to prevent the fuel from spilling & squirting you in the eye.

8.

Disconnect the connector from high pressure hose.

9. Remove the surge tank and gasket...be careful with gasket, you can reuse it.

11. Remove the delivery pipe with the fuel injector and the pressure regulator....
When the delivery pipe is removed, be careful not to drop an injector.

12.

Disconnect the wiring harness of the coolant sensor assembly.

13.

Remove the surge tank.

Ignition coils and ignition wires:
disconnect ignition coil harness connectors

disconnect ignition wires from ignition coils

remove hold down bolts from ignition coils

while gently twisting pull up and remove ignition coils

while gently twisting pull up and remove ignition wires

remove spark plugs (always check gap on new plugs, even if they say they are "pre-gapped" )

Install in reverse order, don't over torque anything and keep your work area clean. Now would be a good time for wire replacement too---depending on the mileage on your Kia

Do a good visual inspection of hoses, clamps, wires & pulleys while you have it "opened up" ---Good luck, thanks for using fixya and i hope you get many more trouble free miles out of your Sorento. =)

SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt

You sent the additional question in the Solution portion of the other original posting...I just happened to stumble upon it when you rated me a "2" out of "4" on the original Posting/Question. A "2" is not good for my 94% Rating!
As far as step-by-step:
The Tensioner Pulleys have two (2) types:
1. If it has an Adjustment Nut located near it: Loosen (counterclockwise) the nut. You will see the Pulley and Belt moving, loosening the belt.
2. The other type of Tensioner is an Automatic Tensioner. The standard rule with these is to move the Tensioner Pulley (it has a strong spring keeping it in place) in the direction of:
(a) Away from the Belt (contact with the Pulley portion).
(b) Towards the open area of the Pulley = towards the direction where the Belt is not iin contact with the Pulley.

Again: Let me know if this helped you, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com! And please don't use a "2". And yes you may change your original Rating from 2 to 4 if you wish....
