i need a detailed diagram on how to replace a valve cover gasket on an 2002 kia sportage. no one makes a repair guide for this vehical
The head gasket on a 2004 Kia Rio is replaced by draining the coolant, removing the intake manifold, and unbolting the cylinder heads. The head and gasket can then be removed and a new gasket put in place.
The 2001 Kia Sportage has 39.6 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Rio has 37.6 in. of rear head room.
The 2001 Kia Rio has 39.4 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Optima has 37.6 in. of rear head room.
The 2001 Kia Optima has 39 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Sportage has 38.2 in. of rear head room.
No the 2002 had a 1.5L DOHC I4 and the 2003 had a 1.6L DOHC I4
Did you just change the head gasket or did you take the head to a machine shop to be checked? If you didn't take the head to machine shop the most likely answer is the head is warped and not allowing new gasket to seal properly. It's possible that the machine shop can redeck the head and it will be fine. Hope this is helpful!!!

You cannot and should not buy a used head gasket. If you have a blown head gasket you replace it with a new gasket. The gasket will cost very little. The labor to replace the gasket is where the cost is. Expect to pay from $500 to $1,000. This is a major repair that takes time.
Just like any other vehicle. The head must be removed in order to replace the gasket. There is no other repair for a blown head gasket except the replace it.
You either have a blown intake gasket or a blown head gasket.

Some sort of gasket may be blown. Either the Head or the Carb gasket IMO.
about 1500 to 2000
Any vehicle can run with a blown head gasket. Question is, do you want to destroy the engine in your Kia? A sure way to do that is to drive it with a blown head gasket. By doing this you are allowing coolant to be mixed with the oil in the engine. Coolant is a horrible lubricant and is actually very corrosive. It will, in short order, destroy the bearings and all other moving parts in your engine.
Basically: pull cylinder head, remove old gasket, install new gasket, put cylinder head back. Do note that this is a simplification, there are plenty of intermediate steps I haven't listed. Odds are, if you have to ask you don't have the skills to do the job.
To change a condenser in a 2001 Kia Sephia you need to disconnect the refrigerant lines and unbolting the condenser. Lift the condensers out and replace with the new one.
I think a "top overhaul" will do. They will just change a gasket which prevents the oil from leaking into the water.
Call a mechanic
I think you have to drop the pan,just have a new gasket handy if you do.
