Have checked e bay history e bay name is shirley9293 £57 + £8.50 postage. This is THE GADGET SHOP 08455 Bolton. The have many types and models for new kia sedona gaskets and it was delivered within 12 hours. They have sold over 42,000 items and have good reputation and feedback. My mechanic would have told me if the gasket was junk.
Have seen quote for 2007 on sedona £1700 for gasket and skim. £400 parts £100 skim £700 labour and then the VAT.
Hope helps but yes get it done the car is worth it. Put you car info on e bay and see how much it would cost to replace. I am £800 - £1000 in pocket after work is done

Hi Thanks for that.
Possibly why I have had to replace headfrom the work the previous owner did. New head has not been skimmed.
Thanks Steve G

If the head gasket has gone, there may be other problems with the engine, especially if it has overheated. So it may be a better idea to replace the entire engine. On my old car I spent nearly 2k on a new cylinder head and having it fitted, for the piston rings to go only 10,000 miles later! Have a look to see how much it would cost for a good engine out of a scrapped Sedona.
Steve, if you go to "post options" you can edit your posts so you don't have to keep posting new messages for corrections.
