A few days ago we had a look at this Kia Sedona Min Van with a bad misfire and diagnosed it as having bad coils and needing new spark plugs, spark plug wires and ignition coils. So here we go! Let's remove the upper intake and get this job done!!

    Great video! enough shown to know what to take off and what not. Dont need to see you unscrew every bolt, I know how to do that. lefty loosey righty tighty unless reverse threads. hahaha

    Please don’t edit out you temper tantrums!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scandy Italian Ice says:

    I understand being upset about a commenter but ranting while you're making a tutorial video is unprofessional. I have a vlog account as well about body mods and I keep it to the material not the rude people or people that expect nonhuman miracles doing videos. I wouldn't say you are a bad mechanic because I had a hard time focusing on the car with the rant but youtube is probably not your thing.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Gebhart says:

    You forgot to blow out the front spark plug holes!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Gebhart says:

    You didn't have to remove the bracket in back of the manifold only the 14 mm. Bolt. Must be your first time!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars barry cassaday says:

    Thank you, I have to do this tommorrow so I better budget 5 hours! Appreciate your channel, knowledge and humor.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darin Miller says:

    While you had it tore down this far it would have been a good time to do the valve cover gaskets.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ralph Hayes says:

    The lift bracket bolts are much easier to get to from under the car!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy Warledo says:

    When you take any clamp off any hose on a kia make sure you put the clamp back the way it came off or it will leak..I'm a kia tech and it is so annoying

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chaingame Fam says:

    What was the torque specs for the intake

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars killaslaye says:

    Will this fix a P0430 for this vehicle?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Digi Digital says:

    The owner should of had new valve cover/spark plug cover gaskets done right away,,,Great job Eric as always…I love your channel as i have learned a lot from you and your personality rocks.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Miller says:

    I think the best way to fix that sort of car is to call the insurance company when it accidentally catches on fire and burns until even the front tires melt.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Taxachusettsucks says:

    Kia a Hyundai with the bolts tightened.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dan ng says:

    have a friend want to tune up 2009 Sedona. I preferred him to you, Eric

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim's Projects says:

    I have a 2012 Sedona that I need to change the plugs. What a nightmare. Is there any easier access? Any clearance from the bottom of the engine? Hey, perhaps you just spoke the key to doing that job easier. what if you raised that engine from the back or rolled it forward? Is it possible?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Catman says:

    I feel your pain but its really funny how some people are

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl M says:

    I think the 3.8 Sedona is a little easier bit still a big job. Still have to take the intake off.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Smith says:

    Just FYI, Milwaukee and Ryobi are now ChiCom tool companies.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Mcgraw says:

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WouterB76 says:

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lost One says:

    I just replaced the spark plugs and coils in a 2008 Santa Fe 3.3 with 135K on the clock and original plugs today and it took 2.5 hours, I used NGK plugs and OEM coils, I wasn't chancing using aftermarket that could die in a month after going through what it takes to get to them.
    Easy enough to change the front ones but getting to the back ones are a pain in the ass. Lucky for me Hyundai was kind enough to leave a bunch of bolts out/loose/stripped out and hoses disconnected when they had worked on the SUV before when my father in law owned it, What a bunch of hacks. This is why I have gone to working on them myself, it's a shame when a dealership mechanic doesn't give a crap enough to do it right.
    I have worked commercial HVAC for over 30 years and seen my fair share of hacks in my industry as well, I guess there are just people that don't care in every job type out there. Seems like there are very few out there anymore that really take pride in their work.

    I became a licensed heavy duty mechanic in 1974, and if the work was as cramped and inaccessible as you do, l wouldn’t have lasted long enough to have gotten my diploma.🇨🇦

    Priceless….

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EE GW says:

    Old video but I'm a technician at a kia dealership and I couldn't help but laugh at the struggle of that bolt behind the intake. I know how you felt brother. That bolt is a mother lover for sure

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Smith says:

    I’m flag I’m not alone in being flustered.
