SOURCE: no spark

Replace the spark plugs and cables also, but mainly the coil pack ignitor. Also check or replace the camshaft position sensor which is most likely the culprit.

What would my car to randomly "bog down" for a few seconds while cruising at 80 mph?


Sounds like you need a Tune up and possibly a battery change. Do a battery test, if it fails the test then replace the battery. Change the spark plugs, spark plug wires, and coil packs.

If your vehicle has a distributer then just change the spark plug wires and spark plugs.
(Try the suggestions above first)

Honestly, with the complication of vehicles now a days, Bring it to a shop and have them do the tune up if you don't know how to perform this procedure. Also your MAF sensor will need cleaning and the air filter will need to be replaced.

How do you change spark plugs in a 2004 hyundia sonata


It depends on which engine is in the vehicle. The 2004 Sonata came with two possible powertrains -- the 2.4 Lit L4, and the 2.7 Lit V6.

On the 4 cylinder engine, there are two coil packs and two ignition wires, Below each coil pack is a spark plug (#2 and #4 cylinders). The wire from # 2 coil pack goes to #3 spark plug, and the wire from #4 coil pack goes to #1 spark plug.

Now the 2.7 Lit V6 requires you remove the surge tank (intake manifold) in order to access the spark plugs & wires on Bank 1 (Right Hand side of the engine).

Okay, i just got done pulling my spark plugs and wires out so i could test my spark. Only two plugs are firing right. And those two plugs are on the same coil pack. The other two are only firing...


The spark issue is caused by the coil packs, this will cause the bogging down, the smoke could be from several issues beside the spark, can't tell till you repair the coil packs

There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.

Ignition Coil Pack Removal & Installation 2V Engine To Remove:
  1. Twist the spark plug wires off of the ignition coil towers. Mark the spark plug wire positions so they can be installed in their original positions.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition coil. CAUTION
    When removing the spark plug wires, a slight twisting motion will break the seal and ease removal.

  3. Remove the mounting screws and remove the ignition coil.
To Install:
  1. Position the ignition coil pack on engine.
  2. Install mounting screws and torque to 53 in-lbs. (6 Nm). coilbolt.gif

  3. Connect ignition coil pack electrical connector.
  4. Match previously marked spark plug wires to ignition coil and install.
4V Engine To Remove:

Car is sluggish and tends to bog down during hard


Could be several possibilities none of which I may be able to eliminate:
1. Tune-up!  You are not getting enough spark or Fuel!  Plug-wires may be cross-firing or bad ground from body to the engine - run a new ground wire to engine from battery or body-ground.
2. Replace fuel filter or do fuel pressure test to determine if f-pump is weak or lodged with corrosion or dirt particles.
3. replace plugs and wires and clean coil-pack ignition module (where plug wires originate from) use a brake-cleaner or throttle-body cleaner but be sure fumes are evaporated and dry before starting or spark could cause explosion from fumes. Oil on module could cause spark to jump.  Do not run plug wires along each other or will jump spark, wires must be crossed once or twice for prevention of this.\
4. check all vacuum lines around engine - a cracked vacuum line can cause a lot of problems.
5. injectors may be dirty or bad - easier to replace complete intake from scrap-yard then to pay $100.00 for new injectors each!
6. Coil-pack on ignition module could be cracked and may need to be replaced.
These are only possibilities of course with the little info you provided.
Hope this helps.

Miss fire 1 and 5 changed wires and plugs


Probably coil pack. Follow spark plug wire from spark plug to where it plugs in, that is your coil pack.Some are seperatable. Depending on motor size you may have coil over plug. You said wires not (cop) coil over plug boots.If it is coil over plug it is just a boot you changed in that case the coils plug into boots & on plug & an electrical connector. They are seperate for each cylinder.

sounds like the coil pack is failing or you could just have water in your fuel.... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it sucks up water) and add them to your tank when you fill up.... if that doesn't fix it it is likely the coil pack

Engine misfires


You didnt mention having changed the spark plug wires, so that is another item that could be culprit as well. As well, it could be a coil pack that is not working properly.

I cannot recall at the moment if that model year uses coil on plugs or if it uses coil packs. Either way, if it uses a coil on plug set up, take the one for the #3 cylinder and move it to say #4 or anyone of your choice and see if the misfire follows

If it uses coil packs, there is likely one coil pack that controls two cylinders. In that case just swap the coil pack with an adjacent one and see if the problem follows. Pay attention to where the spark plug wires go because it will be an issue if you get them mixed up. You just swap the coil packs around.

I would, however, start with the spark plug wires if you have not changed them already.
