Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

SOURCE: changing spark plugs

These are really quite easy to do just time consuming. 1. remove the air ducting from the air box and throttle body 2. remove the accelerator cable and kickdown cable(if equiped with auto trans) from the throttle body 3. remove the 4 bolts from the throttle body and be careful to not ruin the gasket upon removal 4. remove the black cover from the rocker cover(valve cover) 5. remove the 2 coli packs and the spark plug wires. 6. remove the 4 spark plugs. Use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs and gapped at .032". Let me know if you need anything else.

SOURCE: 2000 Sportage: where is the spark plugs located on a 2000 Kia Sp...

They are under the black plastic cover that is in the middle of your valve cover gasket. Remove the intake hose from the aluminum intake plenum on top of the valve cover and the silencer box against the firewall. Remove all the connectors from the sensors which should be 2 on the plenum and the 2 large vacuum hoses on the plenum. Then remove the 3 12mm bolts from the plenum at the throttle body and remove the plenum. You can reuse the throttle body gasket at the plenum so don't destroy it. All the other bolts are 10mm and use a screwdriver to loosen the clamps on the hose. The sensors have clips that you need to remove with a small screwdriver, then disconnect them. Remove the bolts on the cover and the cover. Then remove the bolts holding the coil packs down. Do one plug at a time. 2 of them are connected to the 2 plug wires and 2 are underneath the 2 coil packs. The connectors on the coil packs are fragile so remove them carefully. Reverse the steps to reinstall the plenum, etc.

I got a 2005 sportage 2.7 v6 misfiring, new spark plug wires and plugs. it idles up and goes back down, what could it be?


Depends on when and how it misfires. A constant misfire can be caused by ignition, fuel or compression related problems or even an intake air leak.

I suggest you post again with more information and a more complete description of the symtoms.

How to change the spark plugs in a 2002 kia sportage 2.0 liter dohc


Oh, how fun, changing the spark plugs on the DOHC Kia. Based on experience, I strongly suggest you get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual for your SUV. It will lead you through the process step by step. I'm a rather short F, so I didn't have much difficulty reaching the spark plugs (you have to remove the center cover first). The spark plugs are rather deep in the valley between the cams/valve covers. Because of this it's easy to cross thread them, so take care to avoid this costly mistake. I don't think I would attempt it on the Sportage unless I had some kind of scaffold to stand on.

    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
