This engine uses a separate ignition coil for each spark plug, the spark plug is directly under the coil in a deep well in the valve cover, This type ignition system is referred to as a "Direct Fire" igntion system for obvious reasons. Remove the coils (one for each engine cylinder to access the plugs. See picture of coil below.

Were are the spark plugs on a 2008 suzuki apv van

in what country?
all spark plugs on gas engines are in the cylinder head.
they can be only 2 places there, (side or top)
G16B, are all on the top.
if G16,
my guess, is g16ID engine, DOHC
and is MPI injected
and has , my guess, 4 cop coils on top, that youve never seen before, right>? and each "coil over plug", hides all spark plugs from causual sight, right?
we remove them first , 1 by one, the cops,
just like on all suzuki engines with COPS,

short answer
under those COPS.

How to change the spark plugs on a 1992 camry v6

These plugs are long life platinum tip which don't have to be changed often. Toyota felt justified in hiding them under the intake plenum, which it is best to take off the engine. It isn't a big job to do so, although you will need new gaskets. See p14 here

You can change the plugs without this by taking the bolt out of the centre rear lower engine mount, and jacking up the engine 2-3 cm (no more) at the rear, to get some clearance, but it is still a hell of a job.

Where are the spark plugs on a 2007 Toyota 4 cyl Camry. I removed the top cover and found holes with plastic liners which won't come out, but no spark plugs. Help needed.

Just follow the wires from the coil pack mounted on top, there are 4 of them, they will take you to the side of the motor where the spark plugs are hiding. Hope this helps.

Where did they hide everything in a 96 kia sportage spark plugs distributor cap

you might not have a distributor on that car it could be coil on plug or you could have coil packs, the spark plugs are right on the top of the cylinder head i.e. top of engine, there should only be four and fairly easy to find.

Do not know where spark plugs are located in motor

the spark plugs wires are directly located on top of the engine and the spark plugs are down inside the holes in the valve cover itself. I believe there are also 2 coils on top of the engine, which hide two of the spark plug wires which are attached directly to the underside of each coil, remove the coil pull it upward carefully and you will find the spark plugs for those two in the hole underneath the coil for each one. If you decide to replace the plugs, make sure to check the spark plug gap even if they tell you they are pre-gapped as pre-gapped spark plugs are usually gapped for more than one particular car and it may be incorrectly gapped for your specific vehicle. If you decide to also replace the spark plug wires, you will have to purchase the spark plug wires for the underside of each coil seperately because most local auto parts stores only sell 2 spark plug wires in the set that go onto the non-coil attached wires and plugs, and you have to purchase the coil spark plug wires seperately. So all in all you should have 4 spark plug wires, 2 that attach directly underneath the 2 coils, then 2 regular type wires that run to the other spark plugs. If you look at the valve cover and see the wires, you will see what i am saying better. Just don't forget to ask the autoparts store the spark plug gap recommended for you car, and adjust the gap on the plugs as needed. good luck.
