Question about 2002 Kia Sedona
I had hesitation when I stepped on the gas and then it stalled out and wouldn't restar, mechanic is saying the engine is blow. Does this sound right?
Yes...but hopefully not completely blown...these vehicles have what they call interference engines...where pistons and valves have little to no clearance...so when the timing belt fails...valves have a high risk of slamming into the pistons. Hopefully your mechanic has already ran a compression check on your cylinders...if not please ask him to....it makes a difference between a $3000 motor and a $400 timing belt install kit.....hope I helped!!!
