I don't have experience with this engine but guess you won't have to remove it for valve cover gasket work but perhaps can lift it a bit [not by hand!] after loosening engine mounts.

Get a swivel fitting for your socket wrench. You may also need a short extension for the socket wrench. You will also need a spark plug socket to fit those plugs. Make sure that you pull the plug wires off by gripping the fat part of the plug wire and not the wire itself lest you tear it and ruin it.

I cant find the spark plugs on my 1991 kia sportage


If your sportage has the 4 cylinder engine, there is a plastic cover over the engine that is held down by 4 bolts, one at each corner. Remove the bolts with a 10mm socket and lift he cover off and lay it aside. You will see the spark plug wires and the 4 holes where the spark plugs are. The spark plugs are about 4 inches down into the holes. Be careful removing the spark plug wires, they will be tight, and you will have to rotate them back and forth while pulling up to get them loose.

I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...


yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS LOCATED ON MY 1999 PONTIAC GRAND AM


Hi. here's the procedure on how to replace your spark plugs. Spark plug location is in this procedure.

  • Park the car in cool, shady area and allow the engine to cool.
  • Step 2 Remove the parts of the Grand Am engine that hinder access to the spark plugs. For a 2.2 L engine, remove the ignition coil housing. For a 2.4 L engine, remove the bolts that hold the retaining ignition coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Pull the assembly straight up and away from the engine to remove it. For a 3.1 L engine, remove the air cleaner. For a 3.4 L engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs.
  • Step 3 Locate the spark plug wire and grab it by the spark plug boot. Twist the boot in both directions and pull back to remove the wire.
  • Step 4 Insert the spark plug socket over the old spark pull and unscrew it from the cylinder well. Remove the old spark plug.
  • Step 5 Lubricate the threads of the new spark plug and screw it into the cylinder well.
  • Step 6 Test the tension and adjust it to the required setting. It needs to be 15 ft-lbs. for a 2.2 L engine, 16 ft-lbs. for a 2.4 L engine, 13 ft-lbs. for a 3.1 L engine, and 11 ft-lbs. for a 3.L engine.
  • Step 7 Reconnect the spark plug wire and twist it to lock the plug in place.
  • Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 for the remaining spark plugs.
  • Step 9 Replace all of the parts that were removed from the Grand Am in Step 2 to reach to the spark plugs.

    Need to change spark plugs. where are they located?


    First locate the trim cover emblazoned with the "D-Tec 16V" logo. Remove the trim cover by removing the two bolts holding it down with a 5mm hex drive or allen wrench and gently lifting up. Underneath you will find the plugs. Remove the rubber boots without damaging them, then remove the plugs using a 5/8" spark plug socket. Adjust spark plug gap to .039" (thirty-nine thousandths of an inch). Coat threads lightly with anti-seize before re-installing them. Place a dab of dielectric tune-up grease inside each rubber boot at the end of the ignition wireset before re-installing. Replace trim cover, and you're done. You may also want to have a qualified technician perform a 3-part fuel induction service to your vehicle in addition to removing and replacing the spark plugs.

    Replace Spark Plugs


    What size engine have your behicle?

    2.2L Engine
    1. Remove the ignition coil housing.
      NOTE Remove any water and debris from the spark plug holes before spark plug removal with compressed air. Remove the spark plugs with a spark plug socket.
    2. Inspect the spark plugs.
    To install:
    1. Gap the spark plug, using round wire type spark plug gap gauge. Adjust the spark plug gap to 0.045 in. (1.14mm).
      WARNING DO NOT coat the spark plugs with anti seize compound. Over torquing could occur and damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
    2. Install the spark plugs with a spark plug socket. Tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
    3. Install the ignition coil housing.


    2.4L Engine
    The spark plugs on this engine are located under the ignition coil and module assembly. To gain access to the spark plugs, the coil and module assembly must be removed. On the 2.4L (VIN T) engines, the spark plugs are platinum and require replacement every 100,000 miles (160,900 km) or 60 months which ever comes first.

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the 4 bolts retaining the Electronic Ignition (EI) coil/module/cover assembly (depending upon vehicle application), then detach the electrical connector. Remove the assembly by pulling it straight up away from the engine.

      5cdc221.jpg

      Fig. To remove the cover, unfasten the four bolts, then pull the assembly straight up from the engine
    3. If the connector(s) sticks to the spark plug, use spark plug connector removing tool J-36011 or equivalent, and a twisting motion to detach the connector(s) from the plugs.
    4. Clean any dirt away from the spark plug recess area.
    5. Remove the spark plug using the proper size socket, extensions and universal joints, as necessary. Hold the socket or the extension close to the plug with your free hand, as this will help lessen the possibility of applying a shear force which might snap the plug in half.
    To install:
    1. Lubricate the threads lightly with an anti-seize compound, then start the four spark plugs by hand. Tighten the plugs to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
    2. If removed, install any the plug boot connectors that may have stuck to a spark plug to the EI assembly.
      NOTE Check to make sure the spring terminal is inside the boot.
    3. Install the EI coil/module/cover assembly to the engine, while carefully aligning the boots with the spark plug terminals, by pushing the assembly straight down.
    4. Apply Loctite®thread locking compound, or equivalent to the cover bolts. Install the bolts and tighten to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
    5. If removed, engage the ignition cover electrical connectors.
    6. Connect the negative battery cable.

    I really hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

    Need to replace the spark plugs


    The top of the engine has a cover remove to see ignition coils. Remove wires then coils, plugs are under coils. This is called coil on plug system. Make sure engine is over night cold before you do this, aluminum heads are easy to pull threads when they are hot. Always replace with OEM plug cheap plugs burn out coils !!!

    Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


    Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
    Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

    Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

    Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

    Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

    Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

    Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.
