SOURCE: Dome or Dish Pistons for Mazda FE3N 2L

The dome pistons will provide higher compression than the dished. the domed ones should have an eyebrow cut out for the valves. I believe you would be happiest going with the domes. you might run into spark knock with the increased compression

SOURCE: after getiing my puma back?the engine now smokes

You have this listed under 2001 Ford Focus, but say it's a Puma and also reference the #2 piston. Based on that, I'm going to assume you mean an Arctic Cat Puma snowmobile. If so, Pop the head off (4 nuts) and if it's the gasket, you'll see where it's blown out. Get a new gasket, pop the head back on and tighten it back up. If it's the piston or rings, you'll be able to tell when you pull the head. If the piston has a hole or melted down from a lean condition, you'll see it. If the rings are shot, you may see some scoring on the cylinder wall. You might also be able to tell by the spark plug. Pull it and check for a silvery residue. If the piston burned, it will sometimes leave a silver (aluminum) film on the plug. A whiteish plug means lean which could cause the head gasket or piston problem as well. A dark (brownish, blackish) plug means it was running rich and your piston "should" be ok. Again, best bet would be to pull the head and check everything out.

SOURCE: 2006 Kia Spectra 5 rear brake disc replacement

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

What is a misfire in cylinder #1


Loss of compression means either piston or valve issues. You wouldn't know without a compression test with a gauge.
Misfire could be spark plug, coil or electrical issues.

My 2006 kia sportage lost power while driving. It has fuel and spark. The engine cranks but won't turn over. cylinders show no compression and the only trouble code is for crank position sensor.


No compression and no start with a cam sensor code makes me think that you have a broken timing belt. If true, there has been some engine damage. The pistons will hit the valves and cause bent valves/ holes in pistons.

Firing order for rocam1.6


A six cylinder in-line engine has a power impulse every 720 degrees/6 i.e. 120 degrees of crankshaft rotation. The crankshaft has six crank-throws placed at 120 degrees out of phase with one another, which can be arranged only in three planes. Therefore, the crankpin phasing is arranged in pairs. For heavy-duty diesel engines, seven journals and bearings are provided, at each end and between adjacent crankpins. For petrol engines only 4 or 5 main journals are provided. The firing order with the crankshaft arrangement shown in the attached figure is considered. With piston 1 at the top of the compression stroke, its opposite piston 6 is at the top of its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through 120 degrees brings pistons 2 and 5 to their TDC and either one of these can be arrangement to complete a compression stroke. If piston 5 is arranged to be at the end of compression and at the start of its power stroke, then piston 2 must be on its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through second 120 degrees positions pistons 3 and 4 at the TDC, so either one of these can be on the compression stroke. If piston 3 is made to be on compression, piston 4 must be on its exhaust stroke. A third rotation of 120 degrees brings pistons 1 and 6 back again to TDC, where piston 6 is arranged to be on the compression and piston 1, therefore, be on its exhaust stroke. A fourth 120 degrees rotation brings pistons 2 and 5 to their TDC. Piston 2 is now on its compression and piston 5 on its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through fifth 120 degrees brings piston 3 and 4 to TDC. Piston 4 is on compression and piston 3 on its exhaust stroke. Final rotation of 120 degrees completes the 720 degrees displacement of crankshaft and brings the pistons into positions for the next cycle. This cycle provides a firing order of 1, 5, 3, 6, 2, 4. If the phasing of paired crank-throws 3 and 4 and 2 and 5 are interchanged, then a second equally suitable firing-order of 1, 4, 2, 6, 3, 5 is achieved. This arrangement provides excellent dynamic balance and evenness of torque, and is preferred for engines larger than 2.5 liters provided length is not a prime consideration.

What would cause no compression what so ever,we have replaced the head gasket.


The Kia engine has two overhead camshafts that have to be properly aligned when installing the cylinder head. If you didn't get the timing marks on the cam pulleys as well as the crankshaft pulley lined up the valves will hit the pistons the first time you crank it over. If the valves hit the pistons, they will bend and no longer seal [no compression]. For instance, if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running here is a picture of the result [also no compression]:

From the next picture you can see how close the valves are to the pistons:

I don't think I made myself clear on my last question


The firing order sounds strange but if you are correct then you are right in saying that number 2 cylinder will be down with inlet valves open when number 1 cylinder is at TDC.

How do you compress the break caliper on a 2004 Kia sorento


IS THIS A REAR OR FRONT CALIPER?
1. FRONT CALIPER: INSERT A LARGE C CLAMP WITH THE SCREW END INTO OPEN BORE OF CALIPER PISTON, THE STATIONARY END SHOULD BE SNUG AGAINST THE CALIPER END HOUSING: THAT THE PISTON MOVES IN AND OUT OF
COMPRESS C-CLAMP UNTIL CALIPER PISTON SEATS FULLY AGAINST THE CALIPER SEAL. INSTALL NEW PADS
2. REAR CALIPER: RENT AT AUTOZONE A REAR DISC CALIPER COMPRESSION TOOL. THESE CALIPER PISTONS WIND IN CLOCKWISE, INSTEAD OF JUST SLIDING BACK INTO A SMOOTH BORE. THEY HAVE GROOVES THAT FOLLOW A MATCHING SET IN THE CALIPER HOUSING.

Trying to replace rear brake pads on 2007 kia cerato got old ones off having problems trying to get new ones on


Make sure you compress brake caliper pistons completely back into caliper. Tip slide one of your owl pads in caliper (piston side) and use a large C clamp to compress piston back into caliper flush.
