hi Carl, many thanks for coming back to me, my engine is type KJ and is a common rail engine, not the old type TD, are you sure these diagrams are applicable to my car? Also, the bottom image of the two, is that the only page? (sorry to be a pain, i work for Audi, and am used to different engine variations being slightly different from the next one and want to be sure the diagrams are spot on.) Cheers.
Expert:  Carl replied 5 years ago.
This is for type J3 for some reason I haven't got KJ on my autodata. If I can find anything I will get back to you.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

ok, no worries, just need to be sure. Thanks for your help and will await your reply. I am having it done on saturday so no rush. Cheers, Andrew.

Oh, if you need any Audi data, give me a shout.

Cheers!,
I just joined a kia forum and they can't get hold of it!
Either me or another expert will get back to you!

many thanks Carl, much appreciated. Looking on the eurocarparts website, they list a basic diagram, much the same as yours but without the timing marks, so gut feeling is, its much the same as the J3 engine layout, I may plead with Kia down the road from em and see if they can help too, but any info you find will be most usefull, cheers, andrew.

Hi Carl, many thanks for the second attempt. Doesnt look too bad a job to do.Cheers XXXXX XXXXX Andrew.

Oh, if you need any of Audi info, let me know and i will forward you my works and home emails so i can send you what you need. Cheers, Andrew.

Expert:  Carl replied 5 years ago.
Hi,
Auto-andy takes the credit for this one as I didn't have the info on the KJ engine.
The engine does look quite easy to do but as you know, all you need is a few bolts to snap or sieze and the small job turns into hours of blood, sweat and tears!
I'm not allowed to give out personaI info which is a shame as I do some work for a guy with an a3 so if something came up and I didn't have the data it would be have been usefull. Cheers Carl
