I had a similar problem with my 95 sportage. Turned out that the plug cover on the wire had a small tear and the spark was jumping out the hole to the head. Since its almost impossible to get replacement wire sets localy, I had to buy a do it your self racing wirekit... had no problems since.

Was upset I spent so much on coil and plugs to find that dang tear...

How do you repair a 2000 Kia Sephia cylinder misfire after replacing spark plugs and both ignition coils and the spark plug wires?

I would start with the basics. 1) Run a compression test to rule out mechanical issues. 2) On many engines you can listen to each fuel injector with a stethescope....may be a faulty or clogged injector. 3) Verify spark on each cylinder with timing light or spark tester. Inpspect condition of spark plugs. Misfiring cylinder would have more/less oil/soot on that plug. 4) Test for vacuum to make sure that you have no vacuum leaks. 5) Run a scan for stored computer codes. Many OBD systems will tell you the exact fault and often even which cylinder is misfiring.
