Where are the spark plugs on a 1998 Kia Sportage?

I have a 1998 Kia Sportage and would like to change the spark plugs myself. Can you tell me where the spark plugs are?
If you open your hood and look at your valve cover you will see your spark plug wires. Remove the spark plug wires and the spark plugs are down in the center of the valve cover, in the head, inside tubes. Use a 5/8" spark plug socket to remove them. Do this with the engine cool to avoid causing damage to the threads.

  1. sportage plugs are covered by a plastic cover. You can't see them untill you remove the intake pipe, the throttle cable bracket and then unbolt the plastic cover down the center of the valve cover on top of the engine. Once you have the plastic cover off you can see the plug wires and coil packs. The plugs are under those.
