How to change spark plugs

The spark plugs are located under the four spark plug wires that go through the middle of the valve cover on top of the engine. With a twisting motion, remove the plug wires from the spark plugs. Then using a 5/8 inch spark plug socket and inch extension on a 3/8 inch ratchet, remove the spark plugs. Gap the new plugs to the correct gap (located on the label on the underside of the hood), and in stall into the holes in the valve cover using only your hand to get them started, then tightening with the ratchet. Then reinstall the wires back to their original locations, and you are finished.....

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.

I own a 2002 Kia Rio RXV and my husband decided to change my spark plugs. When he pulled them out of the engine, they were all covered in oil. What would cause this and is it worth fixing?

You have a 4 cylinder and there are seals in the cover around the spark plug holes. You can replace these with a rocker arm cover gasket set. Costs about $25.00. The oil does not hurt the sparkplug, but over time it will affect the plug wires/ boots and cause a misfire. these are not hard to replace. Your call.

Is a special tool required to change spark plugs in the 3.2L engine?

you will need 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace spark plugs.That you can get at local auto part stores.Plugs are on either rocker cover....there are 3 ign coils on each rocker cover that need to be removed then remove the plugs You will need a 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace them 8mm socket holds the individual coils on.
------------ ON 3.2L there are acually no spark plug wires, the engine acually has whats called, coil over plug which means the the power to make a spark plug spark, happens right over your spark plug. Now in order to get to the spark plugs which are under the coils you have to first unscrew the screws, there'll be two phillips head screws per coil, after that just pull the coil out, it should be about 3 inches, the spark plugs are at the bottom of the hole that you just uncoverd, you'll need an extesion for your socket in order to reach them, take them out, replace, put the coil back on top making sure that its seated ontop of the spark plug, put the two screws back in, tighten and your done with one, continue for all.
---------------- this should help.thanks.Helpmech.

I cant find the spark plugs on my 1991 kia sportage

If your sportage has the 4 cylinder engine, there is a plastic cover over the engine that is held down by 4 bolts, one at each corner. Remove the bolts with a 10mm socket and lift he cover off and lay it aside. You will see the spark plug wires and the 4 holes where the spark plugs are. The spark plugs are about 4 inches down into the holes. Be careful removing the spark plug wires, they will be tight, and you will have to rotate them back and forth while pulling up to get them loose.

Where are the timing marks in a 91 honda prelude

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and lay it to the side, ensuring that it does not touch metal. Jack the Prelude up and support it with jack stands. Remove the left front wheel using the lug wrench. Remove the lower splash guard using the appropriate socket.
  • Place the block of wood on the floor jack, then push the jack under the engine. Jack it up enough to contact the oil pan, to support the engine. Remove the accessory drive belts by loosening the accessory drive belt tensioner to relive tension on the belts. Lift the belts off the pulleys. Remove the left engine mount using the appropriate socket.
  • Unbolt the speed control actuator, but leave the control cable connected. Lay it
  • out of the way. Remove the alternator wiring from the valve cover by lifting it out of its wire loom. Unbolt the valve cover and carefully lift it off. If the rubber gasket looks dry, rotten or has cracks in it, replace it. Remove the upper timing belt cover using the appropriate sockets.
  • Remove the power steering pump, but do not disconnect the power steering high- and low-pressure hoses. Lay the pump out of the way. Work the dipstick back and forth to pull it out of the hole. Lay it aside.
  • Number the spark plug wires so you know where they go when you put the Prelude back together. Pull the wires off the plugs. Remove the plugs using the spark plug socket. Stick the long screwdriver in the No. 1 cylinder spark plug hole--the hole closest to the timing belt. Turn the engine crankshaft counterclockwise until you feel the piston push the screwdriver up to the top of the piston bore. The screwdriver will stop moving when it is at the top. Check the timing marks on the flywheel. The pointer located in the hole should line up with the hash mark on the flywheel. If not, turn the engine over once again until the piston is at the top of the bore, and the marks will line up.

    Where are the spark plugs located at

    I found this solution and will not take credit for it, I had the same problem. To change the spark plugs on a 2000 Kia Sephia, at least in a 1.8L version, first disconnect the battery, then, remove the black plastic cover on top of the motor. There should be 6 Phillips-head screws holding it down. After removing the plastic cover, you will see two rubber covers for the spark plug wires on each side, and two gel-looking insuated tubs attatched to more wires in the middle. To remove two of the spark plugs, you must carefully pull the rubber covers upward. They clip onto the spark plugs so you will need to use careful force to pull them out. Once you have them pulled out, you can look in and see the plug. It requires a 5/8 spark plug socket with an adapter to reach in. Make sure you push the socket on hard enough so that it clips onto the spark plug, other wise it will fall over and you wont be able to get it out without a LOT more work. Finish that plug by plugging the rubber covered spark plug wire back onto the spark plug, covering the hole. You can do the same thing for the plug on the opposite side. For the two in the middle, you need to first unbolt and remove the insulated boxes that cover the spark plug holes (you can unplug the white connectors but make sure you plug them back in when you are done). Then all you have to do is do the same thing you did with the two outer ones to replace the plugs. Perform this one plug at a time, and make sure you cover the holes with a cloth or paper towel if you leave them open for any period of time. When you finish, make sure all the wires are connected, then reconnect the battery.

    I need to replace spark plugs and wires on my santa fe v-6. Do i need to remove the intake manifold?

    There may be an engine cover over the valve covers that is a big piece of plastic that may say Hyundai, or Santa Fe,

    I believe its three or four 10mm retaining nuts that hold it on, take that engine cover off, and there should be 3 wires in the top of each valve cover, those big wires are the spark plug wires, and they actually connect to the spark plug which is down inside the cylinder.
    To remove, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, a long extension, I would say 6-12 inches, long enough, but not too long, and a 5/8" spark plug socket.
    Take one of the spark plug wires out, and put your long extension with the spark plug socket on it down into the hole that the big wire came out of and you should find a spark plug at the end of the tunnel.

    Where are the spark plugs for a 2004 kia spectra

    Underneath the spark plug wires. If you have the 4-cylinder, there should be 4 wires/plugs in the holes in the valve cover (or three on each side in the V6). If you pull up on those wire plugs, the spark plugs are inside those cylinders. 
    On the top of the motor remove the plastic cover. it will give you access to the coils and plugs.

    Using a 10mm socket, remove the engine cover. All 4 plugs are in the center of the block. Two are really easy to find, the other two need to be removed after you remove the cover on top. You will need a 10mm socket to gain access to them. Don't forget your extender when changing the plugs. 

    Good Luck and hope this helps. 
    You may want to get Platinum plugs since they have a longer life, just make sure the gaps are correct. Do not gap them, they should be pre-gaped and i believe to be at 0.032
