2002 Kia Optima 2.4L ENG - Torque Spec Correction

Postby rhillig » Wed Mar 18, 2015 6:14 am

Hello,

We found an error today. On the 2002 Kia Optima 2.4 engine torque spec for installing a cylinder head (without replacing head bolts) they list step 1 as tighten to 2Nm (20kg.m, 0.14lb ft) The decimal is in the wrong place - should be 14lb ft.

Thanks for letting us know. Did you by chance enter it in FEEDBACK? If so, they already have this in editorial.

I did not enter it in feedback, I will look for that next time we see a problem.

Thanks
