How to change plugs on 02 kia sportage

    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

    Is there supposed to be oil on the 2,3,4 spark plugs when you change them?


    If there is oil in the spark plug tubes than the valve cover is leaking. It should be changed to prevent the rubber boots from bloating and ruining the wires/coils (if its a coil over ignition). If the boots of the wires/coils are soaked they should be replaced as well. This will prevent misfire issues/poor performance in the future.

    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.
