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

    What order do the spark plug wires go in on a 2000 kia sportage?


    Basically the coil pack in the rear of the engine feeds cylinder #4 and there is a a plug wire off of that coil pack also that feeds cylinder #1. The coil that sits toward the front of the engine feeds cylinder #2 and the plug wire coming off that coil pack feeds cylinder #3. Each coil pack has a white plastic connector that can fit either coil but the length of the wires to each coil is different and should be easy to distinguish which coil pack each connects to. -cylinder #1 would be at the front of the engine and cylinder #4 would be at the rear.

    2001 Kia Magentis engine missfiring , installed


    check new spark plugs for proper gap.
    It may have gotten hit when installing it.check coils second for resistance/firing. sometimes one bank will work fine and the other side will misfire-always replace all together or as a unit. Check
    engine for compression if problem pre existed
    and check for low compression. if 1 cylinder
    has 120 psi and two havepsi below 90 you may have
    a cracked head or bad head gasket.
