    Hey Guys.. Don't know much about Kia Classic but just wanted to share this with "abbasija" specially, I have a Kia Pride, wanted to go for a Overhauling because of white smoke. Contacted a good mechanic in Khi, he told me that if you want to keep the car for 5 to 6 years, go for a complete overhauling with genuine parts, it gonna cost approx about 25k and he said we'll see if Clutch pressure has to be replaced then it will be 30k almost. Also, my Kia has the same problem of diesel sound so i guess its common in all Kia cars. Can anyone tell me, does it cause anything bad to engine if engine is throwing smoke and we are still running the car ???

    Dont ever think to install Spectra's engine! into Classic because its performance worst than Classic Engine
    you got it babe....

    anyways....yes you can fit a spectra's engine in a classic. it fits even in a pride. mount placement is almost same. you WILL need to get better from springs. this engine produces 87hp in spectra. but spectra is way heavy than any other car in its category. and this engine is not that heavy by the way. if you are judging engines weight by its CC than god help you. i am not sure about the engine+transmission price but i think i heard it from someone that its available in rwp's market for 27k. but I AM NOT SURE so dont take my word for the price. and btw, spectra's engine IS just as good as any other car, maybe better than some other local cars.

But one thing for sure I will go for another Kia with good engine.

    White Smoke doesn't always mean an Overhaul, you should ask the mechanic to replace the Rings and should keeps his hands limited to Head. It'll solve the problem and Car won't throw White Smoke or reduce the Oil.

    i dont really know what would be the over hauling cost. Generally the smoke is light bluish when you need to have the engine over hauled. you will also be able to smell burnt oil if go go near silencer after driviing your car for a few km.

    i have a spectra, Al-hamd-o-lillah it runs fine, no sound, good control. i have used it motorway, it has good control.

    regarding engine swap i think that over hauling would be simpler option, since you will not need to make any alterations to the car itself. i have experimented with my Fiat (fitted a Toyota 4E-FE) and i think that i think that alteration if done properly improves your car, but if not done properly can actually ruin the ride.

    besides if you are stilling willing to swap the engine, in my opinion Spectra's engine would not be the best choice although its working out well for me, but its heavy and quite big. i have driven a classic but i think you need to have a lighter engine and 4E-FE should be put in the list of engines t be considered. i have had good experience with this one. it gives around 17 km per lit on the motorway (driving at around 100 kmh without AC).

    Yeah I understood your problem, Car is throwing white smoke + reduces Oil, right ? .. The same problem is with my Car (Pride) .. You don't have to go for an Overhaul, but only the Head of the Engine, replace the Rings and ask your mechanic to keep your hands limited to Head not more than that. This will solve your problem, this will cost you almost less than the half price of Overhauling, hope you got my point.

    Overhaul means to replace all the parts of the engine that are no longer performing well or causing problems, it includes Rings, Piston, CrankShaft repairing, Valves etc. It actually open the engine completely and rebind it after replacing the parts.

    Last year in Nov i purchased a kia classic 2002 with weak engine having the same problem as you mentioned, after trying several option finally i had to go for complete overhauling the engine, after overhaul the engine it is running smooth with no problem. It would be better to consult any specialist mechanic who have experience of kia classic engine.
