    campro engine head cannot be skimmed...the idle will 'lari'...if u already done it,u MUST use good quality metal gasket that thicker than the original gasket..cannot use carbon gasket again..

    The idling probably has to be readjusted with Proton's factory diagnostic. Its available at Proton Service centres.

    The cylinder head can be skimmed. Just to flatten the surface.
    remember only to use genuine cylinder head gasket.
    no such thing as "quality" metal cylinder head gasket..OEM ones are already metal lol
    thickness of the cylinder head gasket ( when seen closely are made up of two layers of super thin metal ) is about 1.00mm ( if im not mistaken ).

    then, properly torque the cylinder head during assembly..most kebabom / "head jahanam" are caused by wrong torque value, wrong torque sequence..then comes wrong torque value of camshaft caps.


    **Genuine campro head gaskets are made in Germany :)

    U mean after skim just buy a new set of original top set??
    If we already skim to the limit maximum, we just use back ori set gasket ??
    The piston won't hit the valve??
    Just asking only, thinking to diy long time ago but nobody can get me the answer..

    sorry ya misai,,kacau ur thread..

    if you skimmed 1.5mm, add 0.5mm ( assuming OEM head gasket is 1.0mm ) thickness of cylinder head gasket to maintain correct compression & also to prevent unwanted valve langgar cases.

    misai :

    if he prefers, then he prefers lah.
    think of it this way.
    the cylinder head gasket not only seals / isolates water from oil..it also must maintain compression of the engine.
    another is, the cylinder head gasket must be able to dissipate and control heat produced from combustion process.

    what logic is that carbon gasket is an excellent as a heat conductor and efficient seal ?

    carbon gasket vs OEM gasket

    could the carbon gasket withstand pressure and high operating temperature over a lengthy period of time ?

    are two layers of carbon gasket when compressed ( being sandwiched by the cylinder head & engine block ) able to maintain good structural integrity & yet provide the crucial properties of what a proper cylinder head gasket should do ?

    cheers :)
