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

    What order do the spark plug wires go in on a 2000 kia sportage?

    Basically the coil pack in the rear of the engine feeds cylinder #4 and there is a a plug wire off of that coil pack also that feeds cylinder #1. The coil that sits toward the front of the engine feeds cylinder #2 and the plug wire coming off that coil pack feeds cylinder #3. Each coil pack has a white plastic connector that can fit either coil but the length of the wires to each coil is different and should be easy to distinguish which coil pack each connects to. -cylinder #1 would be at the front of the engine and cylinder #4 would be at the rear.

    Spark plugs

    The spark plugs are right in the top of the head, through the valve cover.. There are 4 of them.. 2 are under ignition coils, and the other 2 are hooked to the coils with plug wires.

    Open the hood to the Sportage. Do not perform this repair on a hot engine. If it is hot, allow it to cool down before going any further.
    Locate and remove the air intake hose assembly to get it out of the way. Use the appropriate screwdrivers to loosen any clamps.
    Locate and remove the accelerator throttle cable bracket using the ratchet and socket or a hand wrench.
    Remove the coil cover from the cylinder head cover using the ratchet and socket. There are six bolts.
    Remove the cylinder head cover. There are four bolts and two coils. Twist the boot on the high tension leads attached to each spark plug and pull them off. Inspect the spark plug cavity to ensure there is no debris or dirt inside. If so, blow it out or vacuum it out.
    Place the spark plug socket onto the 12-inch long extension and ratchet and insert it onto the spark plug. Remove the spark plugs. The Gap to the new plugs should be between .039 to .043 inches
    Apply a very light coat of anti-seize compound lubricant to the threads of the new spark plug(s). Install the spark plug into the cylinder using the extension and socket only. Do not use the ratchet to tighten until you're sure the spark plug has threaded into the bore correctly. Cross threading a spark plug can damage the cylinder head.
    Tighten the plug to 13 to 15 foot pounds using the spark plug socket, the extension and the adjustable torque wrench. Reconnect the tension leads, the coils and four bolts to the cylinder head cover, the coil cover and six bolts, the accelerator throttle cable bracket, the air intake hose.
    Test start the Sportage to ensure it's running properly and have a great day.
