Where is the spark plug wires on a 2000 Kia Spectra?
The spark plugs and wires are under the cover plate on top of the engine. The cover is held on with six philps screws.
Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs. Remove the spark plugs with a spark plug socket. Install the new spark plugs and put the spark plug wires back on. I recomend replacing the spark plug wires as well. If replacing them, just remember that the new wires are hooked up the same ways that the old ones came off.
Some don't have wires, the coils are mounted direct to the spark plugs. Some have a dual spark plug design where the plug mounted coil also sparks another spark plug on the other side of the engine. Removint these spark plug wires will still allow the engine to run but will eventually ruin the coils. And the third type will not run with out wires.
perhaps you connected your spark plug wires incorrectly check your firing order if you crossed a couple of spark wires the engine may still run but very roughly also you may have spark plug wires that are not fully connected to the plug are you reusing the old plug wires may be time for a new set check connectors for corrosion recomend using high quality spark plug wires
