How do you remove head on 2005 tucson 2.7
Replacing the timing belt will also require you to remove the passenger side engine mount bracket (located near the upper/front head).
Before performing any head work, check the compression of the cylinder(s) in question.
Facing the engine, Cylinder numbers are as follows:
Firewall Bank (Left > Right 1-3-6)
Radiator Bank (Left > Right 2-4-6)
Warm up and stop engine. Allow the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature.
Remove the ignition coil plugs. (*If OEM Plug Cables, they will be numbered) (*Coil Plug Position from font to rear 4-1-2-5-6-3)
Remove Spark Plugs (*To access the rear bank near the firewall, it will require you to remove the Surge Tank)
Check cylinder compression using a compression gauge, turning the engine to obtain at least 250 rpm.
Standard Compression is 206psi
Minimum Compression is 184psi
Difference between each Cylinder 15psi or less
For 180,000 Odometer... It is possible your valves could be sticking. If the vehicle smokes, the you could have leaking valve seals.
There are some do-it-yourself liquids you can try before going deeper into engine work from BG Products. Above all products on the market, they do the best. You can also locate a shop who is certified in using BG Products that can assist you, by looking on their website.
And nothing against the poster, but 6Ya cannot resolve your issue over the phone in just a few minutes. ECM Codes don't tell all the story either.
