SOURCE: spark plugs and wires on a 2002 Kia Spectra

you might see a plastic cosmetic cover over the valve cover area , with like 4 screws holding it down , allen headed screws i think , you will find your wires and plugs under that cover . actually you will find 2 coils with 2 10mm bolts on each coil , each coil has a spark plug boot built on to it for 1 plug and 1 actual spark plug wire to a second plug , very short , unplug the coil connector, unbolt it and pluck it out of the hole , and see your spark plug .

REMOVAL OF THE PLUGS:

Do not attempt any maintenance on spark plug if engine is hot. 
1. Disconnect negative battery terminal. 
2. Carefully remove high-tension leads. 
3. Use compressed air to blow any dirt or debris from around spark plug hole. 
4. Check that spark plug fits squarely in spark plug socket and remove spark plug.

Raise a vehicle and install SST(OK552 131 001) in order to replace cylinder 2, 4, 6 spark plug. 

INSTALLATION:

1. Install spark plug into cylinder head.

Tightening torque : 18~22lb-ft (25~30N·m, 2.5~3.0kg-m)

2. Reconnect high-tension leads. 
3. Reconnect negative battery cable. 

Hope this helps and simple to understand. Good luck

SOURCE: where are the spark plugs for a 2004 kia spectra

Underneath the spark plug wires. If you have the 4-cylinder, there should be 4 wires/plugs in the holes in the valve cover (or three on each side in the V6). If you pull up on those wire plugs, the spark plugs are inside those cylinders. 
On the top of the motor remove the plastic cover. it will give you access to the coils and plugs.

Using a 10mm socket, remove the engine cover. All 4 plugs are in the center of the block. Two are really easy to find, the other two need to be removed after you remove the cover on top. You will need a 10mm socket to gain access to them. Don't forget your extender when changing the plugs. 

Good Luck and hope this helps. 
You may want to get Platinum plugs since they have a longer life, just make sure the gaps are correct. Do not gap them, they should be pre-gaped and i believe to be at 0.032

No spark just means when you connected the wiring plugs, you either missed the one to the distributor or it isn't plugged all the way in.

How to change spark plugs on a kia spectra


remove plastic cowling on top of engine (4 small bolts ) plugs will be under it on front. Remove wires one at a time and replace plugs. Be sure and get wires back in same order. Best to unplug one wire and replace that plug and so on until all 4 are done. Get plugs finger tight then 1/4 turn to tighten. Replace plastic cowling and you are done
