i like to know if there is a diagram or video to change spark plugs on a 2000 kia sportage if there is where can i find it?
They are located in the top of the head, thru the center of the valve cover. Not so easy to get to.
if you have 4 cylinder , 4 plugs if you have 6 cylinder , 6 plugs
the 4th one in line.
What kind of Kia?
If you have a 4 cylinder there are 4 plugs and if you have a 6 cylinder then there are 6.
Please refer to my contributions (Iain01) on this subject, posted on 5th May 2007.
The 1999 Kia spark plug gap setting is .035. Most spark plugs will be pre-gapped by the spark plug manufacturer.
I own a 2002 Kia Sportage, I get 23-24.5 mpg every tank of gas after i changed spark plugs it has 60,000 miles on it
spark plugs are located under plastic covers in valve covers
how many spark plugs are in a 1997 kia?
where is the location of the spark plugs on a kia serento
if you have 2.4l dohv engine, remove the intake tube ,then there is a rectangle black cover with 4 bolts,take that off and you will see spark plugs under it with deep shafts to the plugs.
in the middle, under the air intake manifold there is a black piece of plastic and the plugs are under there, the inlet manifold has to be removed as well...
Make sure the firing order is correct that you didn't mix up the leads when changing plugs.
They will be on top of the engine underneath a black plastic cover. You have to remove the air intake and hose to get to it.
Remove the plastic cover plate on top of engine and you will see 4 holes in a line which is where the spark plugs are recessed into, you will need a socket set with long extension arm to reach the plugs. hope this helps. Iain.
The ignition coils only go over the #2 and #4 spark plugs
Easy fix, remove the spark plugs dry everything off. Then go to autozone and get a new valve cover gasket and replace it. This will solve the problem. By the way replace the 4 spark plugs at this time save you having to do it at some other time.
the spark plugs are located on top of the valve covers. when you open the hood you should see your spark plug wires (black) connecting to them, on top of the engine.
