They are under the black plastic cover that is in the middle of your valve cover gasket. Remove the intake hose from the aluminum intake plenum on top of the valve cover and the silencer box against the firewall. Remove all the connectors from the sensors which should be 2 on the plenum and the 2 large vacuum hoses on the plenum. Then remove the 3 12mm bolts from the plenum at the throttle body and remove the plenum. You can reuse the throttle body gasket at the plenum so don't destroy it. All the other bolts are 10mm and use a screwdriver to loosen the clamps on the hose. The sensors have clips that you need to remove with a small screwdriver, then disconnect them. Remove the bolts on the cover and the cover. Then remove the bolts holding the coil packs down. Do one plug at a time. 2 of them are connected to the 2 plug wires and 2 are underneath the 2 coil packs. The connectors on the coil packs are fragile so remove them carefully. Reverse the steps to reinstall the plenum, etc.

What is the gap needed for a 2010 Sportage 2.7


The spark plug gap? If you are using platinum or iridium plugs (recommended), do not measure the gap as you will damage the plug.

What is the correct gap for the plugs in my 2002 kia sportage


On any parts site or spark plug site, is the gap
next to your plug number

Most vehicles until the last few years, have the gap
under the hood on the emissions label

Then there is the internet & about one hundred places to find it

I would say 90% of all plugs are 1.1 mm or .043 thousands

What about your owners manual--- I have never seen one without
plug gaps,miniature lamps & fuses, everyone seem to have issues

Put new spark plugs and gas filter on 99 kia sportage, now spits and sputters way worse now , wtf.??


fuel filter may be on backwards, restricting fuel flow, if not that check that the spark plug wires are on in correct firing order, as well as the spark plug gap. (spark plugs are not always gapped for the particular application from the factory due to the multiple array of applications a particular plug can be used for)

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
