Honda Insight Hybrid engine is consider the Honda L13 and L15 family type of engine, which is commonly use in City, Jazz, Fit and CRZ, the rocker cover have a bit modification from those non hybrid engine.

Just look at it, it may looks like the one use on the City or Jazz I-DSI model, but it have a longer stretch at one side, don't know if the area is for the engine to connect with the hybrid battery. This hybrid model also can found in Civic and Acura ILX 1.5 model.

Honda Logo D13B, D15B Valve Cover Gasket











Today a customer sent the photo of a Honda rocker cover gasket and asking if we stock the gasket, and the square area which you can see in the above photo stun me for a while, and actually we don't have it, out of the curiosity, I try to figure out which model of Honda using this gasket, although the customer is telling that he is using a old model of Honda City.

After surfing around with the Google help, finally I found it's OEM part number as 12341-P7A-000, but actually I can't found this number in any of my hard copy catalog, and one of the website info show it use on a model call Honda Logo, model GA3 and GA5 with D13B and D15B engine.

Anyway I wonder if this is the only engine left in Malaysia market.

Kia Optima K5 Valve Cover Gasket














In this post just to share a valve cover gasket on a Korea model, KP have no product on this gasket, it is just a sharing post because found this interesting design of the gasket.

The Kia Optima K5 with G4NC engine, have a rocker cover gasket like the above photo which show its OEM part number 22441-2E000, with the 2 pieces of rubber which you can see in the photo, the design is already quite different from other type of rocker cover gasket.













But that is not the end of story, they come up with another part number of 22441-2E300 which is shown as above photo, looks similar, but actually have a longer stretch on the outer rubber.

















And from the above photo, you can see the different between 22441-2E000 and 22441-2E300 more clearly, the gasket is 22441-2E000, which try to install on a rocker cover which should use 22441-2E300, and you can see 22441-2E000 is actually shorter and have a missing stretch on it.
