Kia Sedona bank 2 catalyst converter

My best suggestion is to see if local wrecking yard has a catalytic converter (preferably a pair, 1 for each bank) from a newer wrecked Kia Sedona or similar vehicle. According to my manuals that cover Sephia/Spectra, the catalytic converters are connected to the exhaust system with bolts, and in some applications, springs and bolts. The Chilton/Haynes repair manual, which I was referencing, has step by step instructions in doing this repair. The best investment you can make is a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual that covers your make/model/year of vehicle. I do find it odd that the cat converter went bad on one side only, and on what would be considered a newer vehicle. I'm running the original cat converters in GM and Kia vehicles, and the newest one is 2002.

Where is catalytic converter monitor located

The monitor is an oxygen sensor mounted aft of the converter. Newer vehicles have an oxygen sensor mounted pre-cat for fuel trim requirements, and a post-cat sensor for converter efficiency.

I bought a 2003 cat converter from NAPA(Part No.16403). My mechanic was unable to put the old heat shield back on. I am again seeing the "check engine soon" message on my instrument panel. ...

A 2003 vehicle probably did not need a new converter. Cat converters have to be run for years before they clog up. Depending on what kind of vehicle this is, you may have a post catalytic oxygen sensor problem. Also, depending on the vehicle, you can not just replace the converter with any old converter. Many vehicles require an OEM replacement converter in order for the sensors to work properly and these are expensive. Kansas City Converters (available online) sells replacement converters for a fraction of the price that will work with post catalytic sensors and not cause the check engine light to come on.

1997 dodge ram 3500 starts but can't bring rpms up.

That sounds like an exhaust problem, if your cat. converter is bad your vehicle will start but have loss of power and you will struggle to get to and above 2,000 to if your lucky 4,000 rpms.
A good way to tell is if you run your vehicle for an extended period of time (specially driving), you can get under the vehicle and you might actually see the exhaust system close to the converter is red hot.
Your truck can run without it but it will fail any emissions test you take, it is located between your headers (on the engine block) and exhaust piping under the vehicle.on.
Hope this helps and the cat. converter usually has a manufacturer 5 to 10 year warranty that will cover replacement, if not it should run around $500.00.
