    Did it do this before you changed the plugs? If not, make sure the wires are in the right order, (firing order) and connected to the plugs properly.

If it didn't do this before the new plugs then it is not the coil pack. Those cars are very picky about the plugs they take. If you went cheap on the plugs then you got what you payed for. But the opposite is also true if you bought the most expensive "fancy" plugs you could get then they can cause the same problems. You need to make sure you use exactly the plugs the car calls for. There is a huge difference between copper core, iridium and platinum plugs. Get the correct plugs in there and you'll be all set. But before you swap out the plugs make sure all your wires are on correctly. If 1 or 2 didn't click on to the top of the plug then the engines vibration will cause the wire to jiggle around and you'll have misfire issues.

Put new spark plugs and gas filter on 99 kia sportage, now spits and sputters way worse now , wtf.??


fuel filter may be on backwards, restricting fuel flow, if not that check that the spark plug wires are on in correct firing order, as well as the spark plug gap. (spark plugs are not always gapped for the particular application from the factory due to the multiple array of applications a particular plug can be used for)

MY CAR LOST POWER, STARTED BACK UP AND ONE PERSON TOLD ME TO CHANGE THE SPARK PLUG WIRES BECAUSE ONE OF THE 4 CYL WAS NOT GETTING POWER, WE DID THAT BUT IT STILL IS SPITTING AND SPUTTERING WHAT COULD IT...


Follow the number 4 cylinder spark plug wire back to that ignition coil.
Verify that the wiring is getting voltage approx 12 volts with key on and that ground is good
Make sure that the wiring going to that coil is not corroded, broken pins or breaks in wiring

Anti lock light on-runs rough


I would suggest you take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and have the diagnostic codes pulled. Reply back to this solution and we can go from there.

I would guess per your description, and this is only a guess until you have the codes pulled, you may have a secondary ignition system problem. If the spark plug wires, spark plugs and module / coil pack are old or original, when they get wet the ignition spark "leaks" to ground and causes the stumble or miss. The ABS light will come on because of the miss because it is disabling traction control.
Let me know what you find.

Eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs


I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.
