Question about 2003 Kia Rio
Hot and cold , it sounds like the motor pings(old school description) - weather I've been winding or driving slowly it's making noise and some mechanics suggested that the lifters need replacing and do I buy genuine KIA parts or are there better after market products available here in South Africa ? Thanks guys . Cheers .
First before you do an overhaul try Seafoam You can google it. Do a few oil changes with it and it should clear. Your problems comes from oil sludge and carbon deposits Seafoam is designed for that purpose Once you can clear the clog you oil pressure will rise back to normal

it is common for the oil pump to go bad after changing the timing belt.
the pump is located in the oil pan, and nothing drives it, it works as a sucking action....

i paid $1200 to do timing belt & waterpump .i could of done work myself but warranty requires licensed shop to do it to comply. if funds are low go to a shop and apply for credit. firestone,midas ect.they are rip offs but if approved a payment plan helps the pain

The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.
