When I removed #4 sparkplug there is oil on sparkplug hole on a 2000 Kia sportage


If oil is on the spark plug tip then it could be from worn valve stems or from worn piston rings. When you accelerate away from the traffic lights and the engine blows a lot of greyish smoke then this is a sign of worn parts.
If the oil is leaking into the spark plug hole, then it could be leaking from the tappet cover, either the tappet cover bolts are loose or the tappet cover gasket is faulty.

2000 Sportage: where is the spark plugs located on a 2000 Kia Sp...


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.

How to fit kia sportage valve seals


no its the valve cover gasket. i just did this yesterday. you have to take off the the big thing on top of the valve cover, i think it is the air something other. anyways names arn't important. you need to remove i believe 9 bolts from the out side of the cover, which you can see. remove cover to the spark plugs remove those 8 bolts and pull hard, just take off the old gasket and fit the new one. very simple. i know pretty much nothing about cars but did it just fine no problems. except, you should expect oil to leakk into the spark plug housing but its fine if you clean up the majority. hope this helps.
