Your Sorento will certainly be a deal, due to the fact that you have to remove the top part of the entry manifold to acquire to 3 of her plugs. The sportage is an inline 4cyl, it is failry easy.

Depending ~ above your ability and patience you do NOT need to remove the plenum. They have the right to be gotten rid of by taking the plenum base off and also removing the accelerator body. If the wires are going to be replaced then yes, eliminate it.
Sportage is relatively easy, remover the crossover pipe, (try no to damage the gasket) eliminate the throttle cable / kickdown cable, bracket and also push to the side, remove the black color plastic cover, then remove the low stress leads and also coils or plug leads one by one as required. The plugs room a long way down in there so a socket expansion bar, and spark plug socket through a rubber retainer will certainly be needed. I provided a bit of rubber fuel hose to object in the new plugs. Usage some antisieze top top the threads to make removal much easier next time. Then simply replace everything. Enable a pair of hours if you have never excellent it before.
