If so that is called the plenum gasket, or intake plenum gasket. There are available aftermarket, places like NAPA should have or be able to get them. It is a common gasket to replace because of the necessity to remove the plenum to do a tune-up. NAPA gets about $7 for the gasket.

Will 1997 kia sportage engine interchange with 2000 kia sportage?


First, it depends on which way you are going. Ar you wanting to put the 1997 engine in the 2000 vehicle? Or are you wanting to put the 2000 engine in the 1997 vehicle.

Then, it is possible that the engine block is the same, but most of the engine accessories will most likely be different and you should use only the engine block and the cylinder heads from the donor engine. The rest of the accessories, including intake and exhaust manifolds, oil pan, brackets, sensors, etc. should be transfered onto the donor engine from the original engine. Otherwise, you may be opening a can of worms that you are not going to be able (or willing) to deal with.

I have been told that you have to replace the head bolts when replacing the head gasket because the bolts will stretch. Is this true?


If you change the head bolts that's the safest bet for trouble free operation. But, I've changed head bolts on Hondas for years and they never stretched. I know this is for a Kia. My best guess is that it's not necessary since the Chilton based manuals don't say to do this.

If the head is torqued down to specifications and it leaks, then I would say, otherwise. Even torque is more important than bolt stretch, especially if the bolts don't stretch so much that the head gasket can't be tight against the head and block.

I have a 97 kia sportage. I think i have a exhaust leak. can that have the check engine light on? AND is that the manifold that need to be fixed?


Yes it will turn on light. Replace exhaust manifold only if it is leaking. It could just be loose or damaged gasket or hole or crack pipe.
