I am replacing the fixed (non- adjustable) track bar in the rear suspension. Removing only takes 2 bolts I have removed the one by the wheel which connects to the fixed and adjustable one. My problem is when i go to remove the other bolt it is located inside the rear cross memberand i was able to take the nut off but when you try to pull out the bolt to remove track bar the bolt hits the gas tank before it will come out. Do I simply lower the one side of the gas tank to allow the bolt to come out and if so how do i do that?

I recently bought a used 2006 Kia Sedona with 94,000 miles on it. Now I realize that my timing chain is defiantly loose at startup for a few seconds until enough hydraulic pressure builds up on the tensioner. Now that I know the problem should I have the engine pulled and have the timing chain and the tensioner replaced or is this an issue that can be ignored for 50,000 miles?
I have now solved the previous problem which was broken wires under the air box in the loom. It now won't start after running, so for instance you stop to re-fuel get back in the car, start the engine it won't start. You have to wait for it to drop to below 70 degrees.
Other than that it runs really well, no fault codes are showing.
