You need to remove the "waxy" squares. The spark plugs are underneath them. There should be two without the squares also. Hope this helps.

Where are the spark plugs located at

I found this solution and will not take credit for it, I had the same problem. To change the spark plugs on a 2000 Kia Sephia, at least in a 1.8L version, first disconnect the battery, then, remove the black plastic cover on top of the motor. There should be 6 Phillips-head screws holding it down. After removing the plastic cover, you will see two rubber covers for the spark plug wires on each side, and two gel-looking insuated tubs attatched to more wires in the middle. To remove two of the spark plugs, you must carefully pull the rubber covers upward. They clip onto the spark plugs so you will need to use careful force to pull them out. Once you have them pulled out, you can look in and see the plug. It requires a 5/8 spark plug socket with an adapter to reach in. Make sure you push the socket on hard enough so that it clips onto the spark plug, other wise it will fall over and you wont be able to get it out without a LOT more work. Finish that plug by plugging the rubber covered spark plug wire back onto the spark plug, covering the hole. You can do the same thing for the plug on the opposite side. For the two in the middle, you need to first unbolt and remove the insulated boxes that cover the spark plug holes (you can unplug the white connectors but make sure you plug them back in when you are done). Then all you have to do is do the same thing you did with the two outer ones to replace the plugs. Perform this one plug at a time, and make sure you cover the holes with a cloth or paper towel if you leave them open for any period of time. When you finish, make sure all the wires are connected, then reconnect the battery.

Where are the spark plugs on a 2001 kia spectra?

Directly on top of the motor,Remove the black cover plate(6-8 screws).Next remove the contents within the "well"....The small boxes with the solid,yet wax-like-looking material within them.....and the plunger-ended spark plug wires(carefully pulling)...lift out these parts,remembering their order...WATCH FOR SMALL,BLACK WASHERS.....The plugs reside inside engine will need an extension...It really is easy!

If you open the hood, directly on the top of the engine, there is a black piece of plastic that is held to the engine with 8 screws. Remove the screws and the plastic piece. You will see four spark plug wires that go into the top of the engine. If you pull them out (ONLY DO ONE AT A TIME) you'll see the spark plugs. It will probably take a socket extension to get them. Note....only remove one spark plug wire at a time. You can get them confused and then it is a task to figure it out.
