Have you checked with the salvage yard yet. They have a cross reference to match up transmissions and engines and other parts. What have you tried so far

You transmission is very year specific. They change the tranny's like mid year. In the states The savage yards can not look up your euro carnaval. There is a chance that if you give me the year of the kia sedona I could verify if the transmission matches up. But only to th code you gave me. I did find out some hyndai"s have it. Here is the web search i found on it. I hope it helps.
