Question about Hyundai Accent
Replacing spark plugs is a fairly simple procedure.
1. Not required, however good safety measure is to disconnect the negative battery terminal.
2. Remove the plastic engine cover, should be a few bolts that hold it on.
3. Disconnect the wiring harness to the coil packs. There should be a tab you press, then pull straight back. Really look to see how they disconnect as you do not want to break them.
4. Clean the area around the coil packs as you do not want any dirt falling into the engine once you remove the spark plugs.
5. Pull out your coil packs (there may be a single both holding them to the engine - remove it as well), I just use two zap straps on the top and bottom of the protruding coil pack, and pull up by hand. This should get them out, they can be in there somewhat good, so a little muscle may be required. If you do not like the zap strap method, you can either try to pull them out by hand, or buy a coil pack puller.
6. Using a 5/8" spark plug socket, either one with the rubber grommet, or magnetic (I prefer magnetic as there is zero chance the rubber grommet with come off) connect it to a 3/8" extension bar and use even pressure when turning your wrench counter clockwise. They should break free!!
7. Pull out your spark plugs, they should be attached to your spark plug socket, if not just put your socket back down, and try to pick them out. If that fails, just use an extendable magnet to retrieve them.
8. Time for the new plugs! - Put a very light coat of anti-seize around the top 1/3 threads of the new spark plug, this will help next time you remove them.
9. Fit the new plug back onto your socket, and hand thread them in first to ensure they are not going in cross-threaded. Once you cannot tighten by hand any further, connect your ratchet, and snug them up another 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
10. Reconnect the coil pack wire harness.
11. Re-attach your plastic engine cover.
12. Re-connect your negative battery terminal.

Under the hood you will find a white sticker, about 2-3 inches wide. On it will have the engine size/group and the spark plug gap and other service information. Good luck

If it needs rings, it probably needs a lot of other engine work, like a cylinder hone, or if it's out of spec, a bore, which means new pistons and on. You might look into a good remanufactured engine that comes with a warrantee if your has a ton of miles on it.
