remove 1 spark plug wire from the plug. Find a socket that fits the spark plug and connect it to the socket wrench. Put the socket on the spark plug and turn counter clock wise until the old spark plug is removed. Check the gap on the new replacement plug ( make sure you have the correct plug first). Put the new spark plug into the hole that the old 1 came out of and turn clockwise by hand making sure it is in straight, then tighten it clockwise until tight.( WARNING: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG OR YOU WILL BREAK IT). replace the spark plug wire. repeat the process with the other 3 spark plugs. Start the vehicle. If you are replacing the wires, take off 1 wire at a time, match up the size and replace the old with the new.
You will have to replace the wire. Pull old one off remove spark plug pry the metal end of the wire off the spark plug. Replace spark plug install new wire. there is anti stick for spark plug wiring I would use if I was you
Since you are unfamiliar with this process, do these steps one spark plug at a time. Locate the spark plugs; remove the wire's connecting cap from the plug; remove the spark plug from its threaded hole (use a dedicated spark plug wrench or socket of the proper size - may be a 16mm, 5/8", or possibly but unlikely 13/16"); check the electrode gap on the new plug and install it in the threaded hole; follow the plug wire back to its individual coil (opposite end from the spark plug; remove the old plug wire and replace it with the new one of the same length ensuring the same wire routing; replace the plug wire cap on the new plug; move on to the next and repeat.

Step 3 With your spark plug Socket and wrench rotate the spark plug in a counter clock wise direction for removing. Step 4 After you have removed your spark plug insert your new replacement spark Plug into your spark plug socket before inserting it into the correct location. spark plug sockets are made to hold on to the spark plug for easy removal and install. Step 5 insert your new spark plug, before you rotate your spark plug for tightening rotate the spark plug a 1 quarter turn in the counter clock wise direction, then start tightening the spark plug by rotating it in a clockwise direction This will insure you will not strip the threads. Step 6 Continue rotation your spark plug in the clock wise direction untill snug, then with just a lil more pressure tighten it up just a little more. be sure to not put to much force on the spark plug after it has been snug, you just have to apply a little more pressure but not to much that could cause it to break. Step 7 After tightening the spark plug replace the correct spark plug wire. then move on to the next spark plug and follow the same instructions.
if you have any other visiable obstructions preventing you access for replacing your spark plugs you will need instructions on how to remove them parts. i have just instructed you on how to remove and reinstall the spark plugs only.
Cool the engine before attempting to remove any spark plugs.
Remove the spark plug wires
located across the top of the Eclipse model's engine. The spark plug
wires connected to the spark plugs are the flat circular ends. Grab the
wire around the circle and twist to unlock the wire. Lift up on the wire
to remove it from the engine. Some models with ignition coils above the
spark plug may require you to unhook the wire from the ignition coil to
remove the wire.
Drop the socket with the
extension and socket wrench attached into the cylinder well and on top
of the spark plug. Turn the socket wrench to unscrew and pull the spark
plug out of the engine.
Spray silicone spray into the cylinder well and onto the new spark plug threads.
Insert the new spark plug into
the socket with the threads sticking out. Slide the socket into the
cylinder well and gently turn the wrench to the right to thread the
spark plug into the cylinder head.
Use the tension tool to test the
tension or torque of the new spark plug. Set the tension to the
specifications listed on the spark plug package.
Reattach the spark plug wire to the new spark plug.
Continue this process with the other spark plugs. Be sure to only complete one spark plug replacement at a time.
The 2006 KIA Sorento is a smaller SUV
with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine uses six spark plugs to run the
engine properly. There will be three spark plugs on each side of the
engine. All six spark plugs will need to be changed at the same time to
ensure that all six are working equally. The spark plugs are in plain
sight on the right and left side of the engine and have rubber wires
connected to the top of each one.
Insert the edge of the spark-plug gapping tool under the meal
arm in the center of the one of the new spark plugs and turn the gapper
until the number .038 is in the center of the metal arm. Repeat this
for all other new spark plugs.
Open the hood of the 2006 KIA
Sorento and remove a rubber wire from one of the spark plugs. Use the
ratchet and spark-plug socket to remove that spark plug from the engine.
Insert the new spark plug into the hole where the old plug
was. Hand-tighten the new spark plug until you are certain it is seated
properly, then tighten it further using the ratchet and spark-plug
socket. Replace the rubber wire to the top of the new spark plug.
Repeat for all other new spark plugs. Once you have replaced
all six spark plugs and replace the rubber wires to the tops of them,
close the hood.
