2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 DIY NGK spark plug and PCV replacement
A 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 with 98,932 miles on the clock. The stock NGK Iridium Plugs are replaced with Denso Iridium IK16 plugs, which I paid around $15.00 or $16.00 a piece, they were expensive. The video does not show every detail, advice I gave myself: Anything that is connected to the intake, bolt or harness, REMOVE it, using process of elimination you will get the intake off. After pulling the old plugs, I was surprised to see the electrodes still intact and all were in spec gap wise. A couple plugs had traces of oil on them, the front plugs were the worst with deposits. The rear plugs were in better shape. I changed the PCV valve for the first time using a Genuine Hyundai PCV valve. The old PCV was pretty plugged as you can see in the video. I've read that a plugged PCV valve could cause oil to get onto the plugs. The car does not use any oil, I've never had to top it off. Car was running pretty good prior, I have not done any driving to see if there is a difference in fuel economy or power. This is the first time I've changed spark plugs or pull the intake, it was about 2.5 - 3 hours to pull the intake, if I had to do it again tomorrow I would probably get it done in about 45-60 minutes. I placed anti seize compound on the threads of the spark plugs and dialectic grease on the tips of the plugs. The dealer wanted $235.00 to change just the rear 3 plugs, if they did all 6 the job would have probably been around $315.00 and I'm sure they would have charged for changing the PCV valve too, all in all I saved about $360.00 in labor. I did not replace the intake gasket, it was in good shape its almost like a silicone. Remember, this is not a how to, it is for entertainment purposes only.

Inspired by the Mercedes CLS, RIDES Magazine's Hyundai Sonata turbo looks like a mean Korean machine ready to eat the streets.
Just by looking at the exterior, you can tell major work was done. RIDES designed its own body kit, side skirts, rear wing and roof spoiler. Adding to the visual candy, a set of 20-inch Reenen Modular M9 wheels were added along with some lighting modifications such as painted headlamps, smoked tailamps and a change of color on the grille that is now matte black to match the now-blackened beltline and other bits that were also modified in black.
2006 Hyundai Sonata 3.3L V6 Start Up & Test Drive ( 0-60 )
Just starting up and driving a 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS with the 3.3L V6.
These pull quite hard and the 5 Speed auto really helped. Interior quality is still on the cheap side but it really improves when you step up to he Limited trim.
The A/C must of been out of Freon so 94 degrees isn't fun in dark car.
