Yes they are on the top under the coils each plug has, no spec tools required, just remove the coils to get at the plugs.

Where are the spark plugs located in kia sorento 2004

You will see rubber leads going to four or six spot depending on how many cylinders you have. Those are your plug wires which will lead to a rubber boot on the top side of your engine. Pull on the boot and it will expose the plug.

How to replace spark plugs in a kia sorento

The 2006 KIA Sorento is a smaller SUV with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine uses six spark plugs to run the engine properly. There will be three spark plugs on each side of the engine. All six spark plugs will need to be changed at the same time to ensure that all six are working equally. The spark plugs are in plain sight on the right and left side of the engine and have rubber wires connected to the top of each one.
  1. 1 Insert the edge of the spark-plug gapping tool under the meal arm in the center of the one of the new spark plugs and turn the gapper until the number .038 is in the center of the metal arm. Repeat this for all other new spark plugs.
  2. 2 Open the hood of the 2006 KIA Sorento and remove a rubber wire from one of the spark plugs. Use the ratchet and spark-plug socket to remove that spark plug from the engine.
  3. 3 Insert the new spark plug into the hole where the old plug was. Hand-tighten the new spark plug until you are certain it is seated properly, then tighten it further using the ratchet and spark-plug socket. Replace the rubber wire to the top of the new spark plug.
  4. 4 Repeat for all other new spark plugs. Once you have replaced all six spark plugs and replace the rubber wires to the tops of them, close the hood.

The 2003 Kia Sorento with V6 has the spark plugs located under black plastic covers in the center channel of each cylinder head. Several brackets, cables, and hoses must be moved out of the way to access them. The manifold air intake tube needs to be removed on the right bank.
The left cylinder bank has coil-on-plug assemblies while the right bank has more conventional spark plug caps with sealing assemblies. The coil-packs are held with two 10mm bolts each and are difficult to get to. Use universal-joint sockets and an extension.

How do I change the Sparkplugs on a 2005 kia sedona van? Theres a plastic cover (No Problem). Remove wires (No Problem) Except the top of the plug looks different than most & recessed very far into engine....

it sounds like you removed the intake manifold if not you need to remove it. Use a 5/8 spark plug socket 2 extensions and ratchet I hope this helps you
