Second Generation XM (2011-2019) / Kia Sorento XM 2011-2019 Service Manual / Engine Mechanical System / Cylinder Head Assembly / CVVT & Camshaft Inspection

Continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) Assembly

1.
Inspect the CVVT for smooth rotation.
(1)
Clamp the camshaft using a vise. Be careful not to damage the cam lobes and journals in the vise.
(2)
Check that the CVVT is locked by turning it clockwise or counterclockwise. It must not rotate.
(3)
Intake CVVT : Seal one of the two advance holes in the camshaft journal with tape.
Exhaust CVVT : Seal one of the two retard holes in the camshaft journal with tape.
[Intake]

[Exhaust]

(4)
Intake CVVT : Apply approx. 150 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm², 21 psi ) of compressed air into the unsealed advance hole to release the lock.
Exhaust CVVT : Apply approx. 150 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm², 21 psi ) of compressed air into the unsealed retard hole to release the lock.
  
Cover the oil paths with a piece of cloth when applying compressed air to prevent oil from spraying.
(5)
Intake CVVT : With compressed air applied, rotate the CVVT into the advance direction (counterclockwise) within its phasing range and check that the CVVT turns smoothly.
Exhaust CVVT : With compressed air applied, rotate the CVVT into the retard direction (clockwise) and check that the CVVT turns smoothly.

CVVT phasing range
Intake : 22.5°±1° (from the most retarded position to the most advanced position)
Exhaust : 20°±1° (from the most advanced position to the most retarded position)

(6)
Intake CVVT : Rotate the CVVT into the most retarded position (clockwise) and then check that the CVVT is locked.
Exhaust CVVT : Rotate the CVVT into the most advanced position (counterclockwise) and then check that the CVVT is locked.

Camshaft

1.
Inspect the cam lobes.
Using a micrometer, measure the cam lobe height.

Cam height
[Standard value]
Intake : 44.10 ~ 44.30 mm (1.7362 ~ 1.7440 in.)
Exhaust : 44.90 ~ 45.10 mm (1.7677 ~ 1.7756 in.)

If the cam lobe height is less than standard, replace the camshaft.
2.
Inspect the camshaft journal clearance.
(1)
Clean the bearing caps and camshaft journals.
(2)
Place the camshafts on the cylinder head.
(3)
Lay a strip of plastigage across each of the camshaft journal.

(4)
Install the bearing caps.
  
Do not turn the camshaft.
(5)
Remove the bearing caps.
(6)
Measure the plastigage at its widest point.

Bearing oil clearance
[Standard value]
Intake :
No.1 : 0.022 ~ 0.057 mm (0.00087 ~ 0.00224 in.)
No.2, 3, 4, 5 : 0.045 ~ 0.082 mm (0.00177 ~ 0.00323 in.)
Exhaust:
No.1 : 0 ~ 0.032 mm (0 ~ 0.00126 in.)
No.2, 3, 4, 5 : 0.045 ~ 0.082 mm (0.00177 ~ 0.00323 in.)
[Limit]
Intake:
No.1 : 0.090 mm (0.00354 in.)
No.2, 3, 4, 5 : 0.120 mm (0.00472 in.)
Exhaust :
No.1 : 0.090 mm (0.00354 in.)
No.2, 3, 4, 5 : 0.120 mm (0.00472 in.)

If the oil clearance is greater than maximum, replace the camshaft. If necessary, replace cylinder head.
(7)
Completely remove the plastigage.
(8)
Remove the camshafts.
3.
Inspect the camshaft end play.
(1)
Install the camshafts.
(2)
Using a dial indicator, measure the end play while moving the camshaft back and forth.

Camshaft end play
[Standard value] : 0.04 ~ 0.16 mm (0.0016 ~ 0.0063 in.)
[Limit] : 0.20 mm (0.0078 in.)

If the end play is greater than maximum, replace the camshaft. If necessary, replace cylinder head.
(3)
Remove the camshafts.
