Kia given up but still charging
The latest from dealer;
On the advice of Kia Uk they have not removed the head.
They removed the inlet manifold and checked it out. They say they have tihtened up some bits (I think they were reffering to butterflys) and put it back together.
They said when they first started it it ran great and than started missing again. They say it is now missing worse than it worse before.
But here's the bit I really can't understand; the misfire is now on cylinder 1 not cylinder 5 as it has always been up til now.
Surely it can't be fuel, or injectors now, can it?
I'm picking it up tomorrow running worse than when i took it in 8 days ago, and guess what; they are charging me for not achieveing anything.
Anyway, once I've driven it home, I'll be able to describe better how it's behaving and i'll get the trim readings too.
Now that Kia have washed there hands of it, I'm not really sure where to go next.
