I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot

no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
we cant guess any of that.

Spark plugs and coil connectors remove replace

You mean to change the spark plugs and spark plug wires?
the plugs come pre gapped, NGK is the recommended brand for japanese cars.
Remove and replace une plug and wire at a time, that way you dont get mixed up, make sure wires are plugged back in properly.

Good luck.

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

    Engine turns over but no fire to the spark plugs

    Check for cracks or white dust on the spark plug wires. If found replace the spark plug wires.
    If the spark plug wires are fine, replace the cap and rotor.

    If it still is not fixed check to see if the engine is throwing a code and post more info.
    Do all the spark plugs not fire? check engine light on? Did anything happen right before that might have caused this? ex: washed the engine?

    How do I change the spark plugs for a 2001 xj8 where are they located

    They are located under the black plastic covers on the top of the engine. Remove those and you will see the ignition coils. Take those out and the spark plugs are beneath them. There are no spark plug wires.

    Were do i find the spark plugs on a 2001 doge caravan 2.4 liter

    The 2001 Dodge Dual Overhead Cam engine spark plugs are located in the top center of the cylinder head--right between the cams. The ignition system uses a coil pack located right beside the plugs. The system has very short spark plug wires from the coil to the spark plug so current drop is very low over the length of the wire. The spark plugs are mounted at the base of a tube in the valve cover so an extension on a ratchet is required to reach them

    2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Ignition coils & EGR Valve

    Well I went ahead and took a go at changing the coils, plugs and wires yesterday. It literally took maybe 15 minutes and my hands didn't even get dirty. This is something that the auto place wanted to charge me 650 to do. I spent 200 on parts. I didn't realize the coils were the things sitting on top of the spark plugs. I think my 4 year old could've done it. All I had to do was unbolt the coils detach the wires and then replace. It was too simple.

    I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
