This engine does not have timing belts. The cams are driven by a timing chain that will last the lifetime of the engine.

Invest the <$30 US in an aftermarket service manual for your car.  Haynes or Chilton (same publisher) will have one and you will find it a great way to answer those kinds of questions and maybe, save you from an unscrupulous service shop, if you can check the book to see if the problem they want to fix can have anything to do with a failure you are experiencing. You can buy these on line or at any auto parts store.

What mileage do you change the timing belt


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The recommended interval although not posted in the owners manual for the "original" belt is 60,000 miles. There are new replacement OEM / after-market timing belts that you can purchase that have a recommended replacement interval of 90,000 miles. If you are not the original owner and do not know the history of the past engine maintenance, I would at least inspect the installed belt for cracks, traces of oil, missing teeth, and tension. If any of the previouslymentioned problems are noted have the belt replaced. If there is oil on the belt make sure that both the cam and crank shaft seals are replaced when the timing belt is changed. Seals are cheap...!!!! Timing belt changes are expensive and an oil leak will substantially shorten the life of a timing belt.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Is the timing belt replacement link with the number of Km (90000) only or also with the car life. In other word my A4 19 TDI is 2003 and has got 55000 km when shall i replace the timing belt?


Even your car Audi A4 1.9 TDI has got 55000 km and the timing belt replacement is due at 90000 km, the car was made in 2003. I strongly recommend you to change now the timing belt in order to prevent any risk!

I have a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. Its Engine is 2.o L (120.5) DOHC MFI 16-valve4 -cyl inline engine. It has 90,000 miles on it. When I bought it, it had 89,000 miles. Should I change the timing belt for this...


Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles or 7 years. The have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.

I wanted to know how much would it be for 2003 KIA RIO TIMING BELT


It depends on which engine you have, but it seems that the belt itself is about $30 from Rockauto.com. I would recommend getting the timing kit as well, which is an extra $70 and that includes all new pulleys which keep the belt tight. This is very important in an interference engine like yours. Which means if the timing belt snaps while the engine is running you will damage the engine and can get very expensive. The kit is cheap insurance. Also, you need the belt on top of that as it is not included in the kit. So expect to pay about $100 if you go for both.

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
