Hi All. Not been on for a while. Fitting cylinder head gasket over a period of time to my sedona...second engine and third head gasket, 3 fan belts and3 cam belts since 1/4/11. Saved over £600++. Gasket £55 delivered. £19 for 38mmsocket found 11month old water leak too. Did tiiming my self.
Car drives hard and my Mum said now sounds like a lorry, the turbo seems to not turb as before.
QUESTION is this possibly the timing being slightly out as when starts smoke out of back smells of fuel then clears. The car used to cruise at 98mph if I was not watching now foot to floor gradually gets to 85mph BUT has lost its turbo pull/surge.
Any comments guys???
Thanks Steve G x Blackpool

Hi
NO. I am on my forth gasket and second engine and third cylinder head. This time not skimmed as I believe skimming a Kia is a bad thing as the tollerances are not therefor the valves ect... to have a few thou' removed. This time seems ok.
