I changed the spark-plugs on my Hyundai 2001 XG 300. I bought a membership on one of those websites that offers step-by-step guidelines but, turns out it was not that easy. I believe there is a lot of information in the repair guide but not the essential one. For an instance, the guide never explained that i need to take the whole air-intake plenum off to get to the rear side of the engine, because the spark plug are exactly underneth the plenum.Just to tell you how complicated looked, when i changed the spark plugs i did the three on the front first, not a problem, piece of cake i even remember the brand, they were champion 3 sparplugs , but when i change the rear ones ... TA TAA guess what? different brand, I'm speculating here, but to me is plain, the owner before me, took his top of the line car to an automotive service shop, you know, for a tune up, but these lazy guys decided not to trouble themselves and just change the easiest one. Because it really is hard. You need to unplug quite some connections so mark them out with spray paint, there is two or three harnesses and then take the plenum off but mark all the screws too. I do not have much time to meke a really good explanation but i just save you a lot of trouble. so get your hands dirty. Have fun.

My 91 honda accord is very slow at take off, no smoke,new plugs and wires and timing belt

Is it a carburetor or fuel injected model?
Did the slow take off occur before or after you changed the plugs, wires, and timing belt?

If it started after plugs, wires, and timing belt, I tend to believe the timing relationship between the cam and crank has changed (cam and crank are not timed together properly, off by a tooth or two). Unfortunately you will need to partly tear into it again to verify the timing marks used when the timing belt is changed are perfectly aligned.

Cam belt is also know as timing belt.
The manufacture recommended change interval is 95,000 miles.

Today T-Belt is also drive the water pump.
I strongly recommend you to change the water pump,T-belt,tensioner,and plastic guide at the same time.
Check for any sign of freeze plug leak on the block while you servicing the belt.

Change spark plugs 2001 4 cyl hyundai sonata

You change One spark plug, and One wire at a time. Do you know where your timing belt is? If not, its on either the right or left side of the engine. There is a covor to the timing belt. You take the First plug that is closest to that belt. Then you work your way to the next closest all the way to the last one. Remember, you have to do ONE at a time.

I have a 1991 geo prizm engine type L4,vin engine code 6 single overhead came. I am going to change the plugs and wires i just had a timing belt changed would it throw the belt off & does the spark...

No, it should make a difference if you replace the plugs and wires when it comes to your timing belt. It will not effect the timing belt at all.
