SOURCE: spark plugs and wires on a 2002 Kia Spectra

you might see a plastic cosmetic cover over the valve cover area , with like 4 screws holding it down , allen headed screws i think , you will find your wires and plugs under that cover . actually you will find 2 coils with 2 10mm bolts on each coil , each coil has a spark plug boot built on to it for 1 plug and 1 actual spark plug wire to a second plug , very short , unplug the coil connector, unbolt it and pluck it out of the hole , and see your spark plug .

SOURCE: 2008 GM Melted ground wire/headlight plug - why ?

On your bulb. It should be labeled DOT 12V and then have something like 45W,50W, 55W or whatever wattage your bulb is. If it doesn't, then the bulb is not a proper bulb. I've seen a lot of people installing aftermarket bulbs that burn the wiring and harness because the bulbs draw much more power than the wires are designed (I've seen some install 100W bulbs for 50W harnesses)

If the car was purchased new and the bulbs are the original bulbs, then I don't believe they would. In that case, I would be lead to believe it is an issue with the harness, which could cost upwards of $100. You could splice in a new wire (14GA and better recommended). I don't think headlights are covered under warranty, but you could give it a shot and see what they say.

I replaced the spark plugs & spark plug wires with new & noticed the wire was totally melted on the left side of the engine (if you are standing in front of the car) right next to the exhaust...


Sounds like the wire was touching the exhaust manifold and was melted by the heat. There is usually a plastic thing that you clamp the wires into that keeps them from touching the exhaust manifold.
If theres not one of those things on your car, then use a zip tie or a piece of wire to tie the spark plug wire away from the exhaust manifold onto something above the wire on the cylinder head, throttle cable or something like that.

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

    1998 Honda Civic DX. Melted Boots in Spark Plug Sleeve


    I would use a pair of long nose pliers to grab a hold of them and pull them off, there are metal connectors inside the boots which snap onto the top of the spark plug.

    I have a 1996 Honda Accord that ran hot, plug wire tips melted


    it is really not good to run that hot, metal temper fails...

    your description sounds like you will need to replace the wires, do it one at a time and that is the easiest way to not mix anything up..

    After you get it going, measure how many quarts of oil you burn in how many miles, you may have killed the engine..

    My 1996 honda accord hestites when I give it gas at the lights, I removed the spark plug wire and noticed oil on the end of my wires, as well as a crack, would this be the reason for the rough drive?


    The oil at the spark plug end of your wire is caused by O ring gasket seals that can be bought in a kit for about 20 bucks-valve cover gasket replacement kit. When you remove the valve cover, you will see one for each spark plug hole. They may be melted to the valve cover and need picked off with small screwdriver. After this remove spark plugs to get rid of residual oil. This may be shorting the spark to the engine instead of letting it go through the plug since electricity always looks for the path of least resistance(conductor).

    1999 Dodge grand Caravan Tune up


    i hope this helps more. its hard to explain these things with out being at the car. but i hope this helps. it pretty easy just pull one wire off, unscrew plug from moter, replace with new one, replace with new wire. and repeat 4 or 6 times depending on what engine you have. but write back with anymore specific questions you have.

    When you're removing spark plugs, work on one at a time. Don't start by removing the plug wires all at once, because, unless you number them, they may become mixed up. Take a minute before you begin and number the wires with tape.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and if the vehicle has been run recently, allow the engine to thoroughly cool.
    When removing the spark plugs on the V-6 engine only on the firewall side, it may be necessary to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly from the vehicle. This will allow more room to work between the engine and the engine compartment firewall. Refer to for removal procedures.
    0900c1528003c1aa.jpgFig. 3: Hold the spark plug boot firmly, while giving it a slight 1/2 twist in each direction before pulling it off of the spark plug. remenber do this one at a time. replace the whole wire with new one.
    1. On V-6 models only, remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly from the vehicle for access to the spark plugs on the firewall side.
    2. Carefully twist the spark plug wire boot to loosen it, then pull upward and remove the boot from the plug. Be sure to pull on the boot and not on the wire, otherwise the connector located inside the boot may become separated.
    3. Using compressed air, blow any water or debris from the spark plug well to assure that no harmful contaminants are allowed to enter the combustion chamber when the spark plug is removed. If compressed air is not available, use a rag or a brush to clean the area.
    0900c1528003c1ab.jpgFig. 4: Once all dirt is removed from around the spark plug, carefully loosen and remove the plug 0900c1528003c1ac.jpgFig. 5: Pull the used spark plug out of the cylinder head once it is completely loosened Remove the spark plugs when the engine is cold, if possible, to prevent damage to the threads. If removal of the plugs is difficult, apply a few drops of penetrating oil(WD40) or silicone spray to the area around the base of the plug, and allow it a few minutes to work.
    1. Using a spark plug socket that is equipped with a rubber insert to properly hold the plug, turn the spark plug counterclockwise to loosen and remove the spark plug from the bore.
    WARNING Be sure not to use a flexible extension on the socket. Use of a flexible extension may allow a shear force to be applied to the plug. A shear force could break the plug off in the cylinder head, leading to costly and frustrating repairs.To install:
    1. Inspect the spark plug boot for tears or damage. If a damaged boot is found, the spark plug wire must be replaced.
    2. Using a wire feeler gauge, check and adjust the spark plug gap. When using a gauge, the proper size should pass between the electrodes with a slight drag. The next larger size should not be able to pass while the next smaller size should pass freely.
    3. Carefully thread the plug into the bore by hand. If resistance is felt before the plug is almost completely threaded, back the plug out and begin threading again. In small, hard to reach areas, an old spark plug wire and boot could be used as a threading tool. The boot will hold the plug while you twist the end of the wire and the wire is supple enough to twist before it would allow the plug to crossthread.
    WARNING Do not use the spark plug socket to thread the plugs. Always carefully thread the plug by hand or using an old plug wire to prevent the possibility of crossthreading and damaging the cylinder head bore.
    1. Carefully tighten the spark plug. If the plug you are installing is equipped with a crush washer, seat the plug, then tighten about 1/4 turn to crush the washer. If you are installing a tapered seat plug, tighten the plug to specifications provided by the vehicle or plug manufacturer.
    2. Apply a small amount of silicone dielectric compound to the end of the spark plug lead or inside the spark plug boot to prevent sticking, then install the boot to the spark plug and push until it clicks into place. The click may be felt or heard, then gently pull back on the boot to assure proper contact.

    Have a 03 pt cruiser with a trouble code P0302, stubbles bad and smells rich.


    The P0302 Code points to a misfire detected on the # 2 cylinder. If its stumbling, I would first suspect the plug or wire is bad. I believe the ignition coil on that vehicle is a single coil pack with four terminals, so if only the P0302 code is coming up I would start with the plug and wire. May be time to do a tune up and just replace all the splugs and spark plug wires.
