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.
