KIA is a korean auto. most asian cars recommend nippondenso (also known as NGK) spark plugs. at their site they show 3 plugs available for your car. standard plug number W16EPR-U11, platinum plug number P16PR11, and iridium power plug number IW16, all with a gap of 0.044. standard will do. platinum is better performance. iridium is extremely long life. they go up in price accordingly. use dielectric jell on the plugs shaft to make removal of wires easier next time and to prevent moisture, and anti-sieze compound to the threads of plugs to keep them from seizing in the block and easier to remove next time. I got this info at nippondenso's website here: http://www.globaldenso.com/cgi-bin/global/plug/usa/4w/4w-plug.cgi?name=OPTIMA&filename=4w-34.txt&action=search

2002 kia optima 4 cyl po350 code ignition coil. is there a separate coil that feeds the coils at the spark plugs or are these the only ones? if so where is it located?


the coils at the plugs are the only ones, no other ignition coil. have you checked the system for trouble codes? if not get a cheap code reader and read the codes, then post them back here.

Changing spark plugs


hi there the reason you don't see the plugs is that they will be under a coil pack or separate coils go are the days of plugs at the end of the plug lead there could be covers over them be logical the plugs will be in the head normally between the camshafts if it twin cam.
hope this helps you Regards JR

The relay (fuse type thing located under the hood) was good as well. If that is the case then the motor is the issue. or the switch itself.
