Can you put a timing light between one of the coils on the coil pack and the lead that goes to the sparkplug. ?
Do you need a high voltage timing light or can a standard timing light be used?
Will this cause any damage to the electronic control (computer)?

I'm reading your question.
ON your Santa fe V6.
You can't put a timing light. because they are a COIL ON PLUG.
The secuense of the spark from the coil.
Is completly diferent that distributor engines.
The timing on your vehicle is not ADJUSSTABLE.

NOTE: IF you want check the timing on your car,
The only way is with a Computer Diagnostic . Capable to get PID data. To see cam and crank syncr.

OK.. I hope this fixya your question.

Why does my 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe start up and idles fine then when placed in gear and you accelerate it barely goes ?

I had a similar problem with 2 different cars - neither a Santa Fe, but in the first one, the problem was a clogged fuel filter. In the second one (and this is more like your problem), it was one of the coils in the coil pack. Betcha that is it!

How do you change spark plugs in a 2004 hyundia sonata

It depends on which engine is in the vehicle. The 2004 Sonata came with two possible powertrains -- the 2.4 Lit L4, and the 2.7 Lit V6.

On the 4 cylinder engine, there are two coil packs and two ignition wires, Below each coil pack is a spark plug (#2 and #4 cylinders). The wire from # 2 coil pack goes to #3 spark plug, and the wire from #4 coil pack goes to #1 spark plug.


Now the 2.7 Lit V6 requires you remove the surge tank (intake manifold) in order to access the spark plugs & wires on Bank 1 (Right Hand side of the engine).
