Is it possible to replace the heating coil on a 1994 Kia 4wheel 4 cylinder automatic in a home garage or should it be done at a mechanic shop?

Yes,at home with a few cautions. First unplug battery,Don'y want to discharge air bags,will ruin your day. Cn't give procedure because you did not tell us Kia what? sporatge,sephia,etc. some are tougher than others,some you should take out passenger seat to keep your back from snapping, others being a contorshunist helps.

A compression check and cylinder leak-down test should tell you the condition of your engine.

Heating is a physical process but during heating some chemical reactions are possible.

With an indirect water heating system and cylinder, the water that circulates around the boiler, pipes and radiators is kept totally separate from the stored water in the cylinder that is used for bathing. From the outside the indirect cylinder looks identical to the direct cylinder save from two additional pipe connections on the side of the cylinder. Inside the cylinder a coil heat exchanger is installed, which allows hot water from the boiler to flow into the upper connection and leave at the lower connection to return to the boiler for re-heating. The hot water in the coil indirectly heats the water in the cylinder. A Direct Cylinder is heated by a source located within the cylinder - such as an electrical immersion heater. Because the Immersion Heater is heating the water 'directly' the cylinder is called a 'Direct Cylinder'. In a direct cylinder there are no other external heat sources.
