Javlinenterp , Hi mate, I have just replaced mine today in my 2000 Sportage 2 liter DOHC Sportage. It is not difficult, just time consumeing. Remove the main breather pipe and throttle cables etc, then undo the 6 bolts holding the black plastic cover in the middle of the rocker cover. Then undo the 2 bolts secureing each of the 2 spark coils and pull up the plug connerctors. The plugs are about 8 inches down inside the head. Take them out and put in the new ones, Job done. Cheers Jay Ar, Carnarvon West Aust.

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

    Very sluggish


    It could be a number of things. The spark plugs or the spark plug wires. Fuel pump, or the fuel filter. Check your spark plugs and wires before you do anything. I just changed my spark plugs and wires and now I have better performance on my car. It should be your spark plugs and wires. If you do decide to replace them, you have to know the order of the wires, or you will skrew it all up. So take the new spark plug covors and number them and do them ONE at a time. You can only remove one spark plug at a time as well. I hope this information was good.
