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 Optima has 39 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Sportage has 38.2 in. of rear head room.
The 2001 Kia Optima has 37.6 in. of rear head room.
The 2001 Kia Rio has 39.4 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Sportage has 39.6 in. of front head room.
The 2001 Kia Rio has 37.6 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!!!
A mechanic man will do very good job for your Kia
