Easiest way to fix it, is to replace the wires.
Sounds like the boots have been damaged.

One of the spark plug wires keeps coming off after about 2 minutes of the motor running. Something easy or not?

Maybe you need new spark plug wires? There may be a metal piece inside the spark plug wire end, maybe you can use a pair of pliers to squeeze the metal piece just a little. Make sure the wire snaps down on the spark plug, sometimes you feel it.

Why do my spark plug wires I'm my 1994 ford

Probably not seated well on the plug. When you push the plug wire boot over the plug, you have to make sure the wire end terminal's ring end snaps onto the spark plug. It is not connected tight until you hear the wire's end terminal snap or click onto the tip of the spark plug. If you can't hear the snap, the end of the wire may not be seating onto the spark plug tip. Push the boot back away from the spark plug wire end to investigate-the boots can get very stubborn with age-keep twisting it and pushing it till you get it moving back from end of wire. Examine the metal end tip of wire-trey to snap a spark plug down onto it now-if there is a problem with the end terminals you will see it-it may be too big to snap over the spark plug tip and hold securely, or if the ends are bent, use pliers to straighten them out. If these are aftermarket spark plug wires, the end terminals may be too small to go over the spark plug tip. You would then need a new set of spark plug wires.

I suspect you just have not pushed the wires down far enough to seat them on the plugs-push the wires onto the plugs until you hear them snap or click. Then they are seated firmly, and should not be popping off.

There is oil coming from the exterior side of the spark plug wire. (filled up)

The valve cover gasket is supposed to keep the oil in the valve cover. It is leaking out into the spark plug hole where it fills up, soaking the spark plug wire. Have it changed asap.

How to change plugs on 02 kia sportage

  • 1

    Keep a regular schedule for inspecting the spark plugs on your 2002 Kia Sportage. According to the official 2002 Kia Sportage owner's manual, spark plugs and ignition wires should be inspected every two years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  • 2

    Let your 2002 Kia Sportage sit for a few hours before opening the engine compartment. You want to make sure that the engine is cool before you begin working on it.

  • 3

    Pop open the hood of your Sportage and locate the ignition wires, which will be attached to the top of your engine. The 2002 Kia Sportage has a four-cylinder engine, meaning there are four spark plugs each attached to an ignition wire. The ignition wires run from the engine to the fuse box, which is located in the left side of the engine compartment.

  • 4

    Inspect the ignition wires of your 2002 Kia Sportage. These wires will need to be replaced if they appear worn.

  • 5

    Disconnect the ignition wire to your spark plugs. Grab the rubber boot located near the base of the wire and pull upward instead of yanking on the wire. Remove only one wire at a time, or mark the wires with a colored Sharpie marker before disconnecting all of them. Improperly reconnecting the ignition wires can seriously affect the performance of your Kia Sportage.

  • 6

    Attach the spark plug socket to your socket wrench. Use the socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the top of the engine's cylinder.

  • 7

    Inspect the spark plug. There will be some soot, but if the spark plug is completely covered in soot, it needs to be replaced.

  • 8

    Position your replacement spark plug in place and secure it with the spark plug socket on your socket wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the spark plug after it has been snuggly fitted.

  • 9

    Position the rubber boot of the proper ignition wire in place above the spark plug and insert it with your hands. Close the hood of your 2002 Kia Sportage

    I want to replace the spark plugs and wires on my 03 impala 3.8l. There is a heat shield on th eplug. Can this shield be removed? is there a special tool to remove the wires?

    The heat shield on the plug wires are there to keep the heat off the wires.I believe they are only on the rear ones.Yes they do come off.They need to be installed on the new ones.There are some special pliers that are for removing the wires but sometimes they ruin the wires.The best way to remove the plug wires is to grab and twist back and forth and out.What happens is the rubber part kind of sticks on the porcelin part of the plug and you have to twist it to break it loose.Hope this helps.Good luck.

    Number 2 spark plug wire keeps popping off spark plug

    First, make sure the spark plug is in tight and not cross threaded (take it and put back in). If the plug is loose, pressure comes out of the cylinder and pushed the wire off.

    Second, push the spark plug boot on and massage the air out of the boot.

    Hope this helps.
