Hi. Is there a chance you can take a picture of this and upload it here?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've send the photo it's on the valve cover at the end that's the plug that keeps popping out
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. I am just having trouble trying to picture this in my head. I am a KIA dealer tech but just cant recall what the valve cover and plug look like on an 05.

This is the replacement part that I bought but it keeps coming out
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Does your valve cover have both of the hoses that this picture shows? CLICK HERE

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has this one
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. That appears to be the updated valve cover. Do you ever check the oil level? or notice that the vehicle goes through oil?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It does
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I notice it goes through oil fast
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. I have a feeling that too much pressure is building up inside the engine. The sedona is known for the piston rings wearing out and burning oil. THis allows for combustion pressure to end up in the engine and pressurize it. I suspect that too much pressure is building up inside the engine and blowing out that plug.
