Rick Allen: I'm wondering how often Hyundai reccomends changing the plugs?

abanoob daud: can you please show me how to replace the ignition coil ?

KrzyKoMotion Entertainment: Weren’t you supposed to take the battery off?

MrTuralon: Richard, thank you for posting all your work on your Sonata 2.0T! I hate to hear that you no longer have this vehicle. I have a 2012 Sonata 2.0T and your videos are VERY helpful. I'm no mechanic but I love to save money and do things myself so I know that they are done right. I love the detail you give and your comments. Very well done. I followed your Amazon link to buy my new serpentine belt. By the way, I have had my stock 2.0T up to 150mph ... with absolutely no drama, it was smooth and controlled. I have been 120+ a couple dozen's smooth and powerful. I love my Sonata and plan to keep it for 500K...I have 160K on it currently. Thanks!

pikpok pikpok: hello i have sonata 2.0 turbo gdi and check problem help me

ImNotReallyBritish: Hi Richard, just wondering:

1. What size were the crush washers? Did you reuse the old ones?

2. What size was that hose u used to thread the plugs in?


Sally Boy: For this engine (2.0T) and the 2.4, I cross shop between KIA and Hyundai with ALL parts you are replacing as they are the same engine and the same company. I find that certain parts for my Kia Optima SXL 2.0T are cheaper at hyundai . Most of the time hyundai being a better deal over kia but not all the time. So if you own a Kia and need engine parts for maintenance, that same part (most of the time with same part #) are a few $ cheaper at hyundai. Go figure?

Jolynn Hinkle: you wouldnt happen to know the firing order would you??

Maxx-Lenoxx: I own a 2016 Tucson 1.6T and in the manual for maintenance schedule it reads "CHANGE every 36,000km" which is the equivalent of 22,000 miles. I don't know what's wrong with the Hyundai's turbo engines but that is pretty unusual to replace iridium plugs that quick! In the 2016 Tucson 2.0 naturally aspirated, the maintenance schedule for plugs is "CHANGE every 168,000km".

Rashawn216: hi I have the exact same car a 2011 Hyundai sonata 2.0 turbo and I have a smart leak on my valve cover to the point that it's noticable it doesn't look hard but would like to know if you had any advice for someone that gonna go at it their selfs

Big Edge: Thanks for this video. It showed the basics of a very simple job. I liked the anti-seize idea, the new plugs went in very smoothly - much free-er threading back in than taking the old ones out . The anti-seize acted like a thread lubricant. That said, I will say it was the easiest engine I have ever changed plugs on. A couple side notes for everyone - Hyundai has not been using the Denso plugs lately, instead opting for the NGK's. A wise move as the Denso's seem to be gapped & firing a little too hotly imo. The NGK's I received were at or near 0.035 ~0.036 range, which is where they should be pretty darned close to. The original Denso's were gapped around 0.025~0.026. My engine had 45k on the clock and shocked at how little of the tip remained as well as the seared base of the ceramic. Looking to keep an eye on the plugs every 25-30k now.

VALMER LYNN: you sound like tom hanks :D great vid

Michael Starr: Thanks for the video!

Paully Castallano: That staining is not leaking gasses it's perfectly normal too see that

Jack Cheung: how do you keep your engine bay so clean

girlmastergeneral: Thanks for making this video, after watching you do it, I feel more comfortable trying it myself.

HitManJR85: never pit antiseez on aluminum

carmellac2000: My turbo is so slow

carmellac2000: Mines is 100k when I brought it I believe the spark plugs were never changed

GMP: Excellent video.  Thank you for posting.   Easy to follow, to the point, and your helpful hints make it a fool-proof job. Much appreciated.
