Question about 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
SOURCE: spark plugs
Disclaimer: I am not a mechanic. I am a DIY'er and I have done this in my home garage.
If you have a basics mechanics tool set you should be able to complete this in a couple hours on the weekend. I don't have the exact nuts and bolts to remove, but I took the least as I could. The issue is the intake manifold removal...
- metric socket set with varying extensions
- rubber mallet or hammer and a piece of 2x4
- bungee cord with hooks
- digital camera - take pictures to refer back to later, just a backup
- Spark plugs
- Spark plug wires - get the good ones, cheap go bad very quickly(see my other posts on hesitation)
- paper towel - used to plug manifold holes
- plastic cups - used to keep track of all those nuts and bolts
- gasket? I don't recall if I needed one or not?
1. shop vac as much crud off the engine that you can
2. have work bench or table nearby with tools and supplies
1. Look over and study the compartment and determine what bots/nuts need to be removed. I tried to leave as much attached as I could, but you may need to remove them later .
2. Start taking pictures of engine from all angles, closeups are best
3. From front to back, start removing nuts/bolts and put them in cups and mark appropriately. These cups should be arranged on your workbench in such a way that the first to come off is the last to put on.
3. When you get to a point where you think you can remove the manifold, give it a few taps with a rubber mallet to loosen a bit. If you don't have a rubber hammer, use a reg hammer with a piece of wood. You should now be able to lift it off the block. Be careful not to get dirt in the manifold holes, and stuff holes with paper towels. Since their are still connections from other parts of the compartment to the intake, you will not be able to take it out of the compartment. Use the bungee cord and wrap around the manifold and hang from the hood. You will need to adjust the cord to balance as best as possible.
4. Should be able to remove wires and plugs and replace them.
Hope this helps and good luck!

I replaced mine. I had to remove the plenum to get to the rears. It can be a pain. When removing the plenum, make it easier on yourself and unbolt all of the brackets from the plenum first rather than remove all of the vacuum hoses etc. Also, you will want to replace the intake gasket. It's a thin, metal crush gasket. I also replaced my plug wires so that I wouldn't have to take the plenum off again any time soon.

If the car is missfireing, don't try to patch it one plug at a time. go ahead and replace them all at once. It will save you 5 more cylenders to hunt later.

Tell you what... No response, then I can't help. If you're talking about the accessory drive belt tensioner pully, there are two 12mm bolts which mount it to the engine. You'll need a 3/8's drive ratchet (or other 3/8's drive device) to release the tension so you can remove the accy drive belt to facilitate removal of the tensioner pully. Once you're remove the accy drive belt, remove the two (2) 12mm bolts holding the tensioner pully to the engine (make visual note of position/direction of the drive belt when you do this because you'll need to position the drive belt in the same orientation when you install a new auto-tensioner in place of the old one.).

its pretty simple...
1) let engine cool down all the way
2) pull plug wires off plugs one at a time.
3) remove plugs with proper spark plug socket.
4) replace plug
5) replace wire
6) move to next one.
