Has anyone been able to obtain a workshop manual for Carnival with the dreaded 2.5L (KV6) petrol engine? If so, from where? (I've checked http://www.kiatechinfo.com and it doesn't cover the KV6 engine).

Cheers,
Peter

the kv6 engine was used in several other vehicles ie rover 75, landrover freelander,
so it may be possible to use a manual for one of these to cover the main engine components

Classic boy: Thanks, I'd tried 2 dealers here in Sydney all of whom claimed it wasn't available, so thanks for that, I'll keep at them, & try some other dealers.

Glenn: yes that's 'Plan B' if I can't get a genuine Kia one. One source suggests there are some differences (e.g. torque settings) with the Kia manufactured unit, others that its identical :confused:.

I was told the same thing initially, but I emailed head office and insisted. It was delivered to my local dealer.

Not sure if it's any good but I have a .pdf of the GV6 DOHC petrol engine.

It's the 2497 cc engine.

It's 93 pages and 2.5 Mb if you want I can email it.

Thanks Chris for your kind offer - I've sent you a PM with my email address (that size is no problem).

My attempt to get a genuine one via Kia Aust has been a fairly bizarre experience - I'll post the details for the 'collective knowledgebase'.

Hi Peter,

I resent the info this evening, for some obscure reason my server held the email I sent two evenings ago until it timed out.

Hope you get the info this time

Chris

The gent on ebay that sold the 2002 carnival/sedona workshop manual ($US40) for the diesel & 2.5 KV6 variant petrol was:

Schiff European Automotive
Maintained by:
schiffeuropean ( 7084 [Feedback score is 5,000 to 9,999] ) [eBay Store]
We stock Owner's Manuals, Parts Catalogues and Workshop Manuals for ALL European, Japanese and Korean cars. We also stock high performance exhaust headers, mufflers and exhuast systems for ALL cars and trucks. If you need something not listed, call us at 401.946.4711 and we post the item on ebay.

I don't see it still listed but give them a go.
(See their feedback for past items description of the manual)
as the acrobat CD pdf's were good enough for me.

Hi Chris
I noticed on the forum that you might have a copy of the repair manual for a 2.5l v6 Carnival. I'm having clutch issues and having a hell of a time finding any info for it!!!
I would greatly appreciate ANY help!!
Thanks
TonyM..
