Hi Conglomerate, thanks for your input, i have searched for a manual but to no avail, its a project that i took on that was already stripped due to overheating and i purchased another motor K5M and hence i need all the advice i can get to make it work efficientlyPeter has just about nailed the response
Look for one of my earlier posts - it had the engine manual.
That has some pictures identifying everything - connection ID wise.
Not much in the way of hose routing though...
The nylon tube goes from one side of engine heads to the other.
Its rubber hose ends are usually brittle & cracked - replace if necessary)
Connects onto front (drivebelt end) hose stubs- and tees into stub atop throttle body near throttle wire connection.
The rear (air filter end) cylinder head/surge intake stubs connect to the stubs atop throttle body closer to air filter.
And you also have the brake vacuum hose as well.
You never take any pictures before dismantling?
Or did you inherit a broken down job?
You also asked about the coolant connections.
You fine with them now?
Be wary of the brittle plastic fittings going into engine- don't swing on 'em
Crack and leak easily...
What had me looking for it were the multiple references to the PCV valve in the Kia FL workshop manual for the 2.5l engine (e.g. ‘Replace faulty PCV valve’, etc, etc).as far as I'm aware the K5 engine uses a vacuum orifice as CCV - in lieu of a PCV valve.
Yep, the rubber of the vacuum and breather hoses on mine is brittle and splitting alright – what do you replace yours with, I assume something with better heat resistance.Its rubber hose ends are usually brittle & cracked - replace if necessary)
