SOURCE: Plugs

Changing the spark plugs is a pretty easy task. The spark plugs run along both sides of the engine, 1 per cylinder. (3 on each side) You can easily identify them by the plug wires running to them from the distributor. Pop off each plug wire, (1 at a time) and replace the spark plug. Once you have replaced the plug, replace the plug wire. This ensures that you dont mess up the sequence of the wires which determines which cylinder fires at what time in the cycle. VERY important not to mess up the sequence. If you should happen to get the wires mixed up, look online for the firing sequence for your vehicle and engine.

The plugs are under the ignition coils, there are no plug wires the coils sit right on top of the motor I believe. A friend of mine has Kia Sophia and that's his is.

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

    Hyundai sonata 2003 v6 what do i need for a tune up.


    A tune up is generic. i don'y have specific part numbers or anything, but a tune-up generally consists of:
    Spark Plug replacement (6 of them)
    Spark Plug Wire replacement (6 of them)
    Fuel filter replacement
    Air filter replacement
    On older vehicle, one would check all the components that involve spark, such as distributor cap & rotor. You might not have these, yours may be computerized, no service required until it fails.
    A tune up would also include a review of all recommended service items as noted in your owners manual. Some of these might be mileage related. Such as, timing belt & transmission fluid replacement.
    I normally do not do tune-up's unless the vehicle is having a problem. If you end up taking your vehicle to a mechanic to diagnose a problem, he will suggest many of these items before beginning his diagnosis.
