I have fire, gas, and no blown fuses. ive replaced distributor, cap, button, and coil and also replaced fuel pump. Im lost dont know what to do


Did you make sure you put the sparkplug wires back in the right holes?
If so it could be a compression problem. If you have the tool you can check it yourself by removeing the sparkplug one at a time and and put the gage in the empty sparkplug hole. Have some one turn over the motor and see if your compression is right. Do this to all the cylenders to be sure. If you dont have the tool, take it to a mechanic and have it checked. He can tell what it is and what it is suppose to be. Not knowing what engine you have, I can not tell you what compression to look for. If your compression is low, the rings are gone.

I cant find the spark plugs on my 1991 kia sportage


If your sportage has the 4 cylinder engine, there is a plastic cover over the engine that is held down by 4 bolts, one at each corner. Remove the bolts with a 10mm socket and lift he cover off and lay it aside. You will see the spark plug wires and the 4 holes where the spark plugs are. The spark plugs are about 4 inches down into the holes. Be careful removing the spark plug wires, they will be tight, and you will have to rotate them back and forth while pulling up to get them loose.

I had a sparkplug blow out and was still connected to the cable so i went and bought 4 new ones but when i went to put the new plug in i cant get it snug its not screwing in and holding to my engin block...


It stripped the threads when it blew out, the head/block has to be machined to be able to put a plug back in. Take it to a machine shop mechanic.

Stripped sparkplug holes


There is a way of doing it.Its called helicoils.The people that do it,charge you for it and its not you doing it.Its not the best thing to do but done properly it will work.You have to hunt around the phone book because most workshops will want to do the job themselves and want to pull the head off the engine.I am NOT endorsing the helicoil but just saying what is out there to fix what you asked.Me?I would pull the head off the motor.Hope this helps you

Oil leaking into sparkplug holes on rubber boots


Buy a new valve cover gasket set (and a small tube of silicon high temp sealer). It comes with new rubber seals for each sparkplug hole, and the cover perimeter.Use a little silicon glue on the gaskets to hold them in place. Take your time,do the work with a cold engine in a shaded area. Clean all the oil off the wires and make sure all the old gasket rubber is cleaned off.And check to make sure before you put the cover back on that no old gasket pieces are in the engine.
