The 2003 Kia Sorento with V6 has the spark plugs located under black plastic covers in the center channel of each cylinder head. Several brackets, cables, and hoses must be moved out of the way to access them. The manifold air intake tube needs to be removed on the right bank.
The left cylinder bank has coil-on-plug assemblies while the right bank has more conventional spark plug caps with sealing assemblies. The coil-packs are held with two 10mm bolts each and are difficult to get to. Use universal-joint sockets and an extension.

2011 KIA Sorrento 2.4 were is the fuel pressure regulator located. put on adjustable fuel reg .need to disconnect stock one


fuel pressure regulators are normally located in the fuel manifold. They are either vacuum controlled or electronic controlled to maintain the right fuel pressure for engine requirements and to shut off the fuel pump when the ignition is turned off
If your manually adjusted unit will not do all that then you are asking for fault codes to appear and all sorts of problems to occur

I have a 03 Kia sorento an I think it jump time


This sounds more like an ignition lead has either burned through or cracked. This will cause the spark to jump to the closest metal object ( the top of your engine. The ticking sound is the spark jumping. Take out the spark plugs and check them. They all should be reasonably clean except for the misfiring one. It will be black and maybe look wet. This will tell you where to change the ignition lead

05 kia sorento showmisfre on #6 only wold it show miss fire on #3 to if it was more then just a fulty plug on #6


Could also be an injector or vac leak.
The code means the cylinder did not fire and there was a drop in RPM not that the spark plug did not actually fire.
