I have a 03 kia sorento that i just changed the timing belt and water pump on. It drove fine for about 10 mins but then stalled. After 15 mins it starts, runs for 10 mins, rough again and stalls out.


run fault codes
check for wiring on crank shaft position sensor or cam position sensor/s
it will be something that was affected by the belt replacement procedure

it overheated to the point of engine noise, i would do a compression check, it is most likely a head gasket.
when you filled the radiator did you wait for the thermostat to open and fill it again?

Go get a NOID tester from your local auto parts store and plug it into every injector to see and make sure that each injector is receiving the proper pulse that its supposed to. The only other thing I would check would be fuel pressure. That will give some similar problems

Amount of time expected to do a head gasket, water pump on a 97 olds achieva 2.2?


I'd expect to pay anywhere from 8-12 hours of labor. A head gasket is a tremendously time-consuming job and takes a lot of work. You'll also be paying for other parts (intake and exhaust manifold gaskets have to be replaced, new coolant, new oil since both are drained before the job starts), and if you're doing a water pump, bite the bullet and do the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, accessory belt(s), and thermostat as well - those are normally done with the water pump and there's no sense in paying the labor twice.

lt sounds very much like you have bent a valve stem. There is a quick way to check the probability of this, firstly get a peice of wood, about 50mm x 50mm and about 6oomm long (or 2x2 and2ft long in old money) With the engine idleing place one end of the peice of wood on the top of the cam cover, (thats where you put the oil in) and the other placed against your ear. you will be able to hear the valves rattle if they are bent, and sorry mate, if thats the case, it's an engine head rebuild or replace with either a new block or one from the wreking yard.
