SOURCE: spark plugs and wires on a 2002 Kia Spectra

you might see a plastic cosmetic cover over the valve cover area , with like 4 screws holding it down , allen headed screws i think , you will find your wires and plugs under that cover . actually you will find 2 coils with 2 10mm bolts on each coil , each coil has a spark plug boot built on to it for 1 plug and 1 actual spark plug wire to a second plug , very short , unplug the coil connector, unbolt it and pluck it out of the hole , and see your spark plug .

Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.

SOURCE: 2002 KIA spectra exhaust manifold

The exhaust manifold is right there as soon as you open hood , first disconnect neg batt cab, then jack up car remove bolts that hold pipe to manifold together , unplug any o2 that is in the way and that could get damaged. now from the top take shield off then take manifold bolts out. you might want to spray them with pb blaster and let set a few hours sense exhaust bolts love to break. Remember to use new gaskets installing new one.

How do I locate the tensioner for the alternator belt on a 2003 kia spectra?


I wondered the same thing and looked for days on end. To my surprise, there is no tension pulley for the 2003 Kia Spectra. The Kia 4 cyl has two (2) belts. The outside belt services the power steering and air conditioning. The inside belt (the one you want to service) services the alternator and water pump. The alternator tension is set by two (2) adjustment screws located on the alternator. One screw is used as a locking bolt and the upper bolt is used as the adjuster. You must first loosen the locking bolt which is located between the belt and the alternator housing. Loosen about 6 to 8 travels of the wrench (size 13mm), then tighten the upper bolt until you have no more than 1/2 inch of movement in the belt when you press down. After the correct tension is achieved, tighten the locking bolt and your done. As long as you're down there, you might as well check the outer belt as well. Same principle, one locking and one adjuster. Good Luck, Fred
