How to tune up your car.


<ol> <li> <p>Replace the fuel filter. If you have a fuel-injection system, regular cleaning isn't necessary unless the injectors are clogged.Change the spark plugs (unless they're platinum, in which case you have 30,000 more miles to go). Also examine the spark plug wires and replace as needed. A new set of high-quality wires is worth the cost. They may be permanently attached to the distributor cap, so it will have to be changed as well.the distributor cap and rotor if your car has them (some newer models with distributorless ignition don't).Change the points and condenser if you have an older car (roughly 1978 or older) that doesn't feature electronic ignition. You'll actually want your points changed, or at least adjusted, every six months or so (if they're changed, check the ignition timing as well).Check the ignition timing and adjust as needed (rare for a car with electronic ignition--post-1980--and some <a href="http://www.ehow.com/cars/">cars</a> don't allow this at all).Adjust the valves as needed (unless your car has <a href="http://www.ehow.com/how_1874_tune-car.html#">hydraulic valves</a>). Be sure to replace the valve-cover gasket as well, especially if you see oil on top of your engine.Check the belts. Replace if worn.Check the fluids under the hood and replenish as necessary. Change the oil and oil filter if it's been 3,000 miles since the last oil change.Replace the air filter, which should be changed between major services--every 15,000 miles--as well.Adjust the clutch, if you have a manual transmission (although some cars now sport self-adjusting clutches).Service the battery, adding distilled water (if required), cleaning terminals and cable ends.Replace the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. It can make your car run rough or stall if it gets clogged, and it's cheap and easy to replace.<br /></li></ol>

Accleration, exhaust smoke.


Sounds like you have a fuel-to-air ratio problem causing you to exhaust raw fuel from your exhaust pipe. you could have bad fuel injector, fuel pump, or carborator, if you don't have fuel injection system. Running that way for extended times will fill your engine with carbon deposits that will need to be cleaned up. Also could lead to excelerated piston ring wear. Be sure spark plugs are working properly to insure fuel is igniting. Since spark plugs are ignited via the distributor and ignition coil(s), this system should be check if spark plugs are having irregular ignition. Check timing to insure distributor is working properly. If you have changed gas from premium to regular, this could reduce your engine power, assuming that timing was adjusted to the previous gas. Check owner's manual for proper fuel usage.

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

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? can't find them!


    With your hood open, look for several large and long (probably black) wires. Follow these (ignition) wires to your engine block. Where each wire ends you will find a spark plug.

    What do you call a tune up?


    U are correct, a 'tune up' is not an oil change, although the oil certainly can be changed at the time of a tune up (every 3k miles or twice a year if u don't drive much, and always change the oil filter too). Cars differ, mostly older to newer as to what can and should be done for a tune up. A car from the 1960's would need more parts replaced more often than a new car today (example: electronic ignitions of newer cars eliminate ignition points replacement, and generally, replacement is not as often of other parts: example, spark plugs).
    So, a tune up can include spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and I would include fuel and air filters. There are exceptions to this too, making it more complicated to generalize what to replace, as wires and spark plugs can last 100k miles now, some vehicles don't have the traditional dist. cap and rotor to replace. Check your car owners manual for an idea of what to replace and how often. If u don't have the original owners manual, check the car manufacturers web site for info. Good luck with the tune up!

    Attach the spark plug wires in the firing order. The firing order should be in your owner's manual. It also might have a diagram next to your ignition coil pack. The ports on the coil pack are shown by the diagram.
