Good day. I have been searching the web for some information concerning a mechanical problem that has been presented to me with the repair of my vehicle. I wanted to know if any advice on your part is possible, if you have had experience with the problem that I describe:

I have a Kia Sorento LX 2015 (4 cylinders, 2.4L engine), an engine repair was made due to overheating of the cylinder head that ended up causing wear on the crankshaft in the area of cylinder 1. In the repair process the cylinder head was changed to another used in good condition, the crankshaft was rectified to a cut of 10 millimeters and the other parts related to the operation of the crankshaft were changed to new ones.

Once armed and put to the test for around 3 days, the whole engine works properly, there is no escape of any kind, nor sounds that reflect an internal malfunction. The problem that arises now is a code reflected by the diagnosis of a "check engine" signal corresponding to the number P0011 and P0014 in reference to the Cramshaft Position-Timing (high pressure in the oil pumping system). And here's the reason for my query, the possible reasons have all been observed: the condition of the oil is good (just changed and with which the manufacturer specifies), the cramshaft sensors were changed by new (both), Exhaust Variable Valve Timing Gear was changed for new parts, oil pump too.

The fault is still reflected in code P0011.

Have you had experience with this type of problem? I would appreciate any guidance you could offer me in order to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance and thanks for so many good instructional videos on automotive mechanics that I have seen so far.

What will an engine rebuilt cost vs. the value of your 4-yr.-old Kia?

OK, I didn't though that may be the problem, because every part were taken to measure before assembling. And everything was ok. Gonna have to find an new one and start all over again. Really, thanks for your advice.

rebuilding engines with used heads is just plain foolish, I never would have done that, period. Your rebuilder just should never have done this and only a machine shop could figure out your problem now by rebuilding the whole engine
