You will need a spring compressor which can be a loaner tool from most auto parts store but thats the only special tool needed . And yes it's quite easy

I have a 1998 kia sportage wil crank over and will not start. no spark.


Sounds like the coil or possibly the electronic ignition, replace coil as this is the cheaper option. Check to see if your Kia then starts if it does allow the engine to run until at operational tempreture then shut off the engine allow 5 mins then try to restart if your Kia if it starts again without straining or being boosted via jumper cables problem solved. If by any chance you do replace the coil & your Kia still will not start the electronic ignition is the next step & that can be done yourself as long as you have the required tools & knowledge, if not a trained professional will be able to replace the electronic ignition but this will be very costly if it is the electronic ignition.

I hope this helps.

Are the front struts an easy replacement task, or is it better to take the car to a mechanic?


You are better off taking it to a mechanic - this requires specialty tools and can actually be dangerous without a spring compressor. Check around locally, alot of shops offer sales and they guarantee their work.

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.

It could be a problem with the fuel pump or igntion module/ coil pack. The next time it stops, fuel pressure needs to be checked and have the ignition coil pack and module tested at a local parts store.
