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.
about 1500 to 2000
No the 2002 had a 1.5L DOHC I4 and the 2003 had a 1.6L DOHC I4
Remove the old head gasket and put the new one in its place. Pretty simple
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
When the cylinder head bolts on the Kia 2.o DOHC FE3 engine are tightened in the correct sequence and in 3 steps up to 64 ft/lbs,,,, do you stop there or do you tighten them a further 60-65 or up to 90 degrees.. ? I still have oil ssepage if I stop at 64 ft/lbs and anew head and new gasket as well as new head bolts have been fitted ! A complete AJUSA gasket set was used in the rebuild..
A mechanic man will do very good job for your Kia
Depends on what model Kia you purchase and if it is new or used. Click the link.
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 labor time for the dealer to do it would cost approximately $1000 and about $100 for parts. A non dealer repair shop would cost less at around $850 for the labor.
