On the 99 Kia Sephia 1.8L, on the fuel rail under the hood, there is what looks like a service port. It kinda looks like a valve that you would fill a bicycle tire up with air, it also might have a light ble cap on it. press in the pin like you would let the air out of a tire. (CAUTION) use gloves and eye protection cause this part of the fuel system is pressurized. Some fuel will squirt out but will evaporate soon, faster on a hot day. Hold pin until fuel doesn't squirt anymore. (NOTE) Before starting your car next time, cycle the fuel pump by turning your key to the on position a caouple of times.

Remove the gas cap and that will relieve pressure in the tank. There is a Schroeder valve on the fuel injector rail. Use that to relieve pressure at the injectors.

On the passenger side, just under the air intake cover, there are two lines with nuts on them attached to the fuel rails. Turn them 1/2 turn and you will bleed the pressure from the system.
