Question about 2007 Kia Rio5
A valve job is when someone (or business) recuts the valves/head to properly seat the valves in the heads to the engine. On a 2007 I really doubt that is necessary. You generally see this done on older cars with higher miles. Now on the same token if its a valve adjustment, then it could be necessary on a newer vehicle once the vehicle is past its "breaking in" period. Hope this gives you some direction. Thanks for using fixya!
