Default Sedona spare wheel and tire

I recently purchased a 2003 Kia Sedona, but it doesn't have a spare tire and wheel.
Can anyone tell me if the spare on that vehicle is a full-sized tire, or a compact spare? Thanks!

Hi Larry,
The spare tire rack underneath the rear of the van can hold a full size tire. That is what I had on when my van was bought.

Hope this helps,
Bruce

Thanks Bruce, that will help me in my search for a spare. But, it looks like I have worse problems. I bought the van with a severe oil leak, and so I towed it home on a trailer. I was able to drive it off the trailer into the garage, although the engine ran pretty rough. so, I replaced the plugs, which were shot (88k miles), and fixed the oil leak, which was a loose camshaft cap. I then drove the van about 3 mile to the car wash, to wash off some of the oil, which was caked under the van all the way to the rear bumper.

The van ran, but had no power on acceleration. if I babied the throttle, I could get in to accelerate, and i made it to the carwash.

Washed off the some of the grime, and headed back home. Got the engine up to 4 grand, and about 45 mph on the way home, let off the throttle, and suddenly the engine died. No noises, but it would not turn over after that, acted like the engine was semi locked up.

the only code i have are for misfire random, and misfire on 2,4 and 6. which I didn't have before I changed the plugs!
I towed it home, and after it cooled off, the engine turns over freely, but will no longer start. I haven't had a chance to troubleshoot any further.

so, any ideas what's happening?

Probably old outcome by now.
But suspect you had seized valve dampers,cam shaft due to upper head oil leak.

Check your valve seats with a boresope. Likely to have bent valve stems..
Also, the engine timing/belt alignment.

Be interested to know what ya actually did experience.
Quote your engine model too - there were a few variants...

Family man with Kia Carnival 2001
KV6 petrol engine variant.
Rebuilds after years of using as a 4WD substitute...

You guessed it, intake cam seized due to lack of lubrication. I'm replacing the head, and the timing belt. the engine is the 3.5l V6, 2003 Sedona.
