Is it worth getting a secondhand replacement engine for my 2004 Kia Carnival?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jul 2018

It is likely that there is a head gasket problem; it was a common issue with the early Carnival. Buying a secondhand engine is inviting trouble. It could also be struck down with the same problem and you could find yourself back in the same situation. I would be doing the head gasket rather than buying a secondhand engine, that way you know it is fixed.
