It could be a bunch of things, any oxygen sensor, cam position sensor, crank position sensor, air inlet temp, any of these things will trip off the engine light. You have to get your car to the parts store and get the scanner on it and see what codes come up, you can replace parts forever and not hit it. Save your old parts, they are probably still good. Coil packs are expensive. Check it out, hope this helps.

Kia sedona 2003 not firing on #3 cylinder


With the vehicle running remove the plug for the fuel injector for cylinder #3. RPM should drop. If you have access to nous lights plug one into the injector plug and make sure it flashes. If no flash either the wiring is open or grounded or the computer is not commanding it on and off. You should also look at the cylinder compression. Make sure plugs aren't cracked, are correctly gapped, and no carbon tracking.

Changed the spark plugs and now the service engine light is flashing.


A flashing service engine light usually means a misfire. You may want to make sure you put wires back on in the correct order. Also check the coil or coil packs.

flashing engine light means engine misfire. let car idle and mist the plug wires down with water, rev the engine up and down and look for little sparks jumping from the wires. and arcing wires can cause problems. before changing any bad wires check the coil packs where the wires plug in the three small boxes on the top back of motor. they are three packs with two wires each. one pack at a time take the two wires off to reveal the coil towers. have an assistant start the motor and make sure the spark goes from tower to tower. repeat on remaining two packs. if the spark goes straight down the tower the coil needs replaced. if there is no spark, the coil needs replaced.

Engine light on and flashing


USUALLY WHEN AN ENGINE LIGHT IS ON AND FLASHING THE EMMISSIONS HAS DETECTED A MISFIRE IN THE ENGINE. SOMETIMES THIS COULD BE MUTLIPLE/RANDOM CYLINDERS. SPARK PLUGS, WIRES, AND COIL PACKS ARE A LEADING CAUSE IN THIS. CHECK YOUR SPARK PLUGS FIRST. THEN PULL OFF A SPARK PLUG WIRE AND PUT A SCREWDRIVER IN THE END TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING FIRE. ON THE COIL PACKS IT HAVE TO SEE WHICH ONE IS BAD OR MULTIPLE ONES.

If you dont have the proper spark due to a bad coil pack you will not get all the gas burned properly and your manifold will glow red.I would start with the coil pack.!

Engine misfires


You didnt mention having changed the spark plug wires, so that is another item that could be culprit as well. As well, it could be a coil pack that is not working properly.

I cannot recall at the moment if that model year uses coil on plugs or if it uses coil packs. Either way, if it uses a coil on plug set up, take the one for the #3 cylinder and move it to say #4 or anyone of your choice and see if the misfire follows

If it uses coil packs, there is likely one coil pack that controls two cylinders. In that case just swap the coil pack with an adjacent one and see if the problem follows. Pay attention to where the spark plug wires go because it will be an issue if you get them mixed up. You just swap the coil packs around.

I would, however, start with the spark plug wires if you have not changed them already.
