    Thanks a lot. I forgot to mention I reviewed all the fuses (took them out one bu one under hood and under steeering wheel) and all are fine. But main fuse which come with a screw. Someone told me all mentioned failures could be related to a ONE relay, so a removed and interchanged all 3 relays in a fuse compartment underthehood, but seems to be fine. Do you know where to look for more relays? Thanks a lot for your answer Sir/Ma'am.

Check your fuses in the engine bay as you may have shorted them out when you washed the engine.

How to change the spark plugs in a 2002 kia sportage 2.0 liter dohc


Oh, how fun, changing the spark plugs on the DOHC Kia. Based on experience, I strongly suggest you get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual for your SUV. It will lead you through the process step by step. I'm a rather short F, so I didn't have much difficulty reaching the spark plugs (you have to remove the center cover first). The spark plugs are rather deep in the valley between the cams/valve covers. Because of this it's easy to cross thread them, so take care to avoid this costly mistake. I don't think I would attempt it on the Sportage unless I had some kind of scaffold to stand on.

How to change plugs on 02 kia sportage


  • 1

    Keep a regular schedule for inspecting the spark plugs on your 2002 Kia Sportage. According to the official 2002 Kia Sportage owner's manual, spark plugs and ignition wires should be inspected every two years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  • 2

    Let your 2002 Kia Sportage sit for a few hours before opening the engine compartment. You want to make sure that the engine is cool before you begin working on it.

  • 3

    Pop open the hood of your Sportage and locate the ignition wires, which will be attached to the top of your engine. The 2002 Kia Sportage has a four-cylinder engine, meaning there are four spark plugs each attached to an ignition wire. The ignition wires run from the engine to the fuse box, which is located in the left side of the engine compartment.

  • 4

    Inspect the ignition wires of your 2002 Kia Sportage. These wires will need to be replaced if they appear worn.

  • 5

    Disconnect the ignition wire to your spark plugs. Grab the rubber boot located near the base of the wire and pull upward instead of yanking on the wire. Remove only one wire at a time, or mark the wires with a colored Sharpie marker before disconnecting all of them. Improperly reconnecting the ignition wires can seriously affect the performance of your Kia Sportage.

  • 6

    Attach the spark plug socket to your socket wrench. Use the socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the top of the engine's cylinder.

  • 7

    Inspect the spark plug. There will be some soot, but if the spark plug is completely covered in soot, it needs to be replaced.

  • 8

    Position your replacement spark plug in place and secure it with the spark plug socket on your socket wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the spark plug after it has been snuggly fitted.

  • 9

    Position the rubber boot of the proper ignition wire in place above the spark plug and insert it with your hands. Close the hood of your 2002 Kia Sportage

    Changed timing belt on 2001 kia sportage but still runs rough


    I would check the connectors on the coil packs, spark plugs and wires and replace them if they at all seem worn or tired. My 2000 sportage ran rough so I replaced the fuel filter, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, cleaned out the IAC valve, TPS, throttle body and intake tube, tightened the screws on the fuel pump access door under the right rear seat and cleaned the ground wire and the contact surface and I added 1 ground wire from the block to the firewall and 1 from the valve cover to the firewall. Your timing is more than likely right where it needs to be but the ignition may be slightly missing from a bad coil pack, dirty or fouled plugs or a bad plug wire.
