Where are the spark plugs on a 2002 kia spectra


Hi.

It depends on the model. Kia Spectra comes with engines that ranges from the 1.5, to the1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 liter models. Most engines have the spark plugs located on top of the engine block under a plastic cover. Under the plastic cover you may find the plugs or two coil packs. In the last case the plugs are located under the coil packs.

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

    Where are the spark plugs


    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Spark plug socket
    • Socket wrench with extender
    • Anti-seize compound
    • New spark plug
    • Tension tester tool
    1. Step 1 Raise the hood and locate the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool before attempting this process. Depending on the climate, it may take 30 minutes or more to cool the engine.
    2. Step 2 Find the spark plug cables on the Kia Spectra engine of either a four- or six-cylinder variety. The number of cylinders indicates the number of spark plug cables on the engine.
    3. Step 3 Turn the cables by the boot, or cover, that connects to the engine or directly to the spark plug. Disconnect one cable and complete the replacement process before removing the other cables to ensure the cables don't cross. Pull back on the cable to reveal the spark plug.
    4. Step 4 Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with the socket. The extender may not be needed for 4-cylinder engines. Turn the socket in a counter-clockwise motion to unscrew the plug and remove it from the cylinder block.
    5. Step 5 Use the applicator supplied with the anti-seize to spread the compound over the threads of the new spark plug. This compound allows for easy removal when you need to check or replace the spark plugs.
    6. Step 6 Screw the spark plug into the cylinder well by hand. The spark plug needs to be tight in the well but may have to be loosened after the tension test finishes.
    7. Step 7 Test the torque of the spark plug with the tension tester tool. Normally the spark plugs on a Kia Spectra need 18 to 22 ft-lbs torque. Check the Spectra model's owner's manual or the manufacturer's package because some premium or performance spark plugs use different torques.
    8. Step 8 Reconnect the spark plug wire and turn it to lock it in place. Continue replacing the rest of the spark plugs. Reconnect the battery cable after you replace all the spark plugs.

    WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS IN 2003 KIA SPECTRA GSX>


    There are 2 coils, they're black square things about 1 1/2 inches or so square. Tops are probably a brown resin color. They unbolt with 10mm bolts IIRC. There are plugs underneath the coils, connected with adaptors. There are 2 plug wires going from the coils to the other spark plus.

    DON'T TAKE THE PLUGS OUT WHEN THE ENGINE IS WARM!

    BE CAREFUL STARTING THE NEW PLUGS, MAKE SURE THEY TURN EASY BEFORE YOU USE A RATCHET.

    Spark plugs and wires on a 2002 Kia Spectra


    you might see a plastic cosmetic cover over the valve cover area , with like 4 screws holding it down , allen headed screws i think , you will find your wires and plugs under that cover . actually you will find 2 coils with 2 10mm bolts on each coil , each coil has a spark plug boot built on to it for 1 plug and 1 actual spark plug wire to a second plug , very short , unplug the coil connector, unbolt it and pluck it out of the hole , and see your spark plug .
