REMOVAL OF THE PLUGS:

Do not attempt any maintenance on spark plug if engine is hot. 
1. Disconnect negative battery terminal. 
2. Carefully remove high-tension leads. 
3. Use compressed air to blow any dirt or debris from around spark plug hole. 
4. Check that spark plug fits squarely in spark plug socket and remove spark plug.

Raise a vehicle and install SST(OK552 131 001) in order to replace cylinder 2, 4, 6 spark plug. 

INSTALLATION:

1. Install spark plug into cylinder head.

Tightening torque : 18~22lb-ft (25~30N·m, 2.5~3.0kg-m)

2. Reconnect high-tension leads. 
3. Reconnect negative battery cable. 

Hope this helps and simple to understand. Good luck

The spark plugs go straight down through the center of the cam/valve cover. You must remove the plastic cover going down the center to get to the wires and plugs.

With that said, I do not recommend that you attempt to replace your plugs unless you have a source of compressed air. The removal procedure includes "cracking the plugs loose and turning approximately 3/4 turn. Then place a blow-gun with a long tube down inside the spark plug tube and blow out any debris that is in the tube before revoving the plugs the rest of the way. Failure to follow this procedure can cause debris to enter the combustion chamber when the plugs are removed and can cause serious engine damage.

2010 Kia Forte ex die on highway will not start said engine said nothing does anyone no what this means cat evap Oz's hrt egr


Instead of Oz's hrt egr, the computer is referring to the O2 heater, and your Catalytic converter is Overheating because of the resulting rich mixture, this triggers an automatic shutdown or limp home mode for your engine. You need to get your trouble codes read, so you know which O2 sensor is bad.
