Re: The 02 Sportage over heats after changing the head
If you have done all of this look under the cooling bottle where you put the ant-freeze and see if you have a crack in it and also make sure your cooling fan is ok and there is no play in the water pump and i hope it not your headgasket.

My experience with a kia sportage is that the big fuses are simply inserted to the fuse box located in front of the battery at the engine bay. The plastic holders gets brittle over a span of time and due to the heat inside the engine bay. Most often the fuse loosens up and causes fuse blow out. I had 4 successive fuse blows in 2 months time that i decided to change the whole fuse holder with a new one. It Worked
no hard at all take aloose caliper guide bolts thair are two think to be a 12mm or 13mm pull caliber off slide pads off before reinstall new pads check rotor for wear heat cracks wavey rotor if bad than replaced rotors next step take a c clamp to push the piston back into caliper so it will slide back on the pads and rotor then grease guide pin bolts then reinstall them get in to truck pump bakes few times than pedale be back to normel
Please post the odometer reading on the Sportage.
Most vehicle does not need catalytic converter and O2s until 120,000+ miles.
Before you cause damage to the cyclinder head,YOU MUST get the crack exhaust manifold reslove.
Keep running your truck with a crack exhause manifold will increase the heat on the valve/head.
The term burn valve is cause by un-even and excessive heat to one or more valves.
BAD vavle(s) will bend and not shut correctly.
It will cause the end to lose compression when the valve is not shut.
More noticable at higher RPM.
I will do a compression test and see is the compression is holding pressure.
The PSI reading should not be different beyond 20-25 psi between cyclinders.
50 psi below factory spec on all cyclinders will need a engine rebuild soon.
As long as the engine can start it will be with in 3-5 degree from spec. Timing is not your problem.
Please post the odometer and compress test reads and I will follow up on it.
Check to make sure that all air is out of the radiator. The best way is to remove the bottom hose let water drain. Then when refilling make sure you squeeze the top hose to make sure that there is not air in the system at all
