Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
Why am I getting water in cylander heads, no water in oil and no visible cracks please help
For water to get into all cylinder heads the head bolt tension is not as it should be. This comes from mainly 2 items . one is that the head is warped and is not tightening evenly and two the head stud holes are full of water and a hydraulic lock has formed before bolt tension was sufficient to hold the head down. If there is any water /oil or rust /gunk in the holes then the studs bottom out before attaining the proper head tension. Cracks can be under the exhaust valves
