Kia Optima

Spark plug removal/installation

The engine with the cover still on

Removing the engine cover (there are four screws on the edge and you have to remove the oil cap)

Plug wires exposed

Removing the wire harness

Pulling the plug wire out

Removing the plugs

Spark plugs are very far down in the holes

Using a deep socket with an extension to loosen the spark plugs

Because of the depth at which they are located, I chose to use an extractor tool to get them out
