How to replace the spark plugs on a 2003 Kia Sorento?

How do you replace the spark plugs on a 2003 Sorento? You can not even see them. Also where are the coils and how do you test them?

    Thank you. Since you can not see them it makes it a little hard to test them. With them back there it also makes it a bit difficult.

There is a black rubber button reset switch right next to the air box, press it sounds like the problem i had its a fuel pump reset (just in case of a wreck it kills the car) but there is a tiny ball in there and if it is rattled a little too much it will fall and you need to press the black looking button to reset it....took me like 4 months to figure it out

How to replace spark plugs in a kia sorento


The 2006 KIA Sorento is a smaller SUV with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine uses six spark plugs to run the engine properly. There will be three spark plugs on each side of the engine. All six spark plugs will need to be changed at the same time to ensure that all six are working equally. The spark plugs are in plain sight on the right and left side of the engine and have rubber wires connected to the top of each one.
  1. 1 Insert the edge of the spark-plug gapping tool under the meal arm in the center of the one of the new spark plugs and turn the gapper until the number .038 is in the center of the metal arm. Repeat this for all other new spark plugs.
  2. 2 Open the hood of the 2006 KIA Sorento and remove a rubber wire from one of the spark plugs. Use the ratchet and spark-plug socket to remove that spark plug from the engine.
  3. 3 Insert the new spark plug into the hole where the old plug was. Hand-tighten the new spark plug until you are certain it is seated properly, then tighten it further using the ratchet and spark-plug socket. Replace the rubber wire to the top of the new spark plug.
  4. 4 Repeat for all other new spark plugs. Once you have replaced all six spark plugs and replace the rubber wires to the tops of them, close the hood.

Vehicle bogs down when accelerating at low speeds


I would replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. Replace them ONE AT A TIME!! Do NOT mix up the firing order of the wires!! When you pull each plug look at it and see if it oil fouled. Some Kia's have an issue with leaking valve cover gaskets that can cause excessive amounts of oil to collect around one or more of the plugs which fouls them out and causes misfires. If this is the case, the only solution is to replace the gasket and the plugs. Please rate me on this answer.

Can't find where the spark plugs are located


The 2003 Kia Sorento with 3.5L V6 has the spark plugs located under black plastic covers in the center channel of each cylinder head. Several brackets, cables, and hoses must be moved out of the way to access them. The manufold air intake tube needs to be removed on the right bank.
The left cylinder bank has coil-on-plug assemblies while the right bank has more conventional spark plug caps with sealing assemblies to keep dirt/moisture out of the spark plug wells. The coil-packs are held with two 10mm bolts each and are difficult to get to. Use universal-joint sockets and an extension.

Takes about  2.5 hours to R/R spark plugs. The average do it yourself'er will take longer (usually). All electrical plugs are color-coded and/or indexed so it's pretty difficult to screw it up. The cruise control actuator cable is in the way on the left bank. Twisting the cable elbow upright releases it from the actuator allowing it to be bent sideways to gain clearance. 

Good luck and hope this helps.
