Hi Yordy. Edit /etc/yum.conf as root, and change the line.
keepcache=0  to keepcache=1

While your at it, and if you want to keep more than the default 2 kernels, add 
a line to the file as below.
installonly_limit=0

That will disable yum from trashing kernels you may want to keep (the 0 is a 
zero by the way).

All the best.

Nigel.
