Changing spark plugs 2001 Kia sportage

These are really quite easy to do just time consuming. 1. remove the air ducting from the air box and throttle body 2. remove the accelerator cable and kickdown cable(if equiped with auto trans) from the throttle body 3. remove the 4 bolts from the throttle body and be careful to not ruin the gasket upon removal 4. remove the black cover from the rocker cover(valve cover) 5. remove the 2 coli packs and the spark plug wires. 6. remove the 4 spark plugs. Use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs and gapped at .032". Let me know if you need anything else.

How to change spark plugs on the v6 Nissan 2000 Maxima?

For the 3 spark plugs in front:
1. You would have to remove the plastic protective cover (this cover is silver&red w/ the words "nissan and v6 3000")
2. unplug connector and remove coil (DO NOT mix up the coils, keep the same coils on the same cylinder)
3. Remove spark plug

Rear 3 plugs: located on the rear of the intake (the black pipes atop the engine). there are 3 openings at the rear of the black intake pipes, each opening has a coil mounted.
1. Unplug coil connector and remove coil
2. remove spark plug (you'll need a long extension)
***Installation is reverse, be sure not to over tighten the plugs!! Use anti-seize compound on all the new plugs threading. Hopefully this helps!!

Is it hard to change spark plugs in my 2000 Volvo S-80.

No. Remove the covers on the top of the heads(straight black covers, usually they say Volvo) and that should give you access to the spark plugs. Plug gap is 0.030".

Trying to change the spark plugs and can not find them

If you look under the hood, you will see a BLACk cover under the intake tube.this black cover has 6 bolts and has to come off..its alot of work to take everything off..under this black cover are 2 COILS with 2 spark plugs under them.
DO NOT REMOVE the plugs with the egnine hot .this car has aluminum heads and you will strip the plugs.

The other 2 wires can be more easily seen and have a black boot on them..under the 2 black rubber boots are the other 2 spark plugs.. 

Lots of Kia sportages misfire and skip and the check engine lite will come on..usually its a bad wire or plug..very common in these cars..also, if the VALVE cover gasket LEAKS at all, oil will get into the boots or wires or plugs and cause the car to skip and idle rough or MISFIRE.. 
Good luck and hope this helps.
