2004 KIA SORENTO LIFTER TAPPING

I JUST HAD THE TIMMING BELT ,CRANK SENSOR,AND WATER PUMP REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME. WHEN THE MECHANIC FIRED IT UP AFTERWARDS A LIFTER STARTED TAPPING AND THE OIL LIGHT CAME ON. HE THEN CHANGED THE OIL HOPING THAT IT MIGHT BE A BAD FILTER, BUT THAT DID'NT HELP. SOMEONE SUGGESTED THAT IT MIGHT BE THE OIL PUMP GOING BAD AS IT IS COMMON ON KIA'S.. WHY DOES IT AFFECT IT, AND WHERE IS THE OIL PUMP LOCATED. WHAT DRIVES THE OIL PUMP?

It is common for the oil pump to go bad after changing the timing belt.

the pump is located in the oil pan, and nothing drives it, it works as a sucking action....

I have a 03 kia sorento that i just changed the timing belt and water pump on. It drove fine for about 10 mins but then stalled. After 15 mins it starts, runs for 10 mins, rough again and stalls out.


run fault codes
check for wiring on crank shaft position sensor or cam position sensor/s

because you have replace engines but I imagine that you have used the crank and cam position sensors on the 3.5 but connected up to the kia ECM there is a possibility that the ecm is not reading those position sensors and not providing timing for the ECM . It will be reading as broken timing belt. I would suggest a scan of the fault codes to determine if there any sensors not reading correctly. You may have to find a speed shop that has CPU programming capabilities to reprogram the ECM/CPU to the different sensors.

On a 2006 kia sorento , can you tell me how to locate the water pump. We think a leak may be coming from there. Does the timing belt have to come off to remove the pump?


not sure on model but most new cars if you jack up the car and remove the drivers side wheel right hand drive uk you should be able to get at it from there the timming cover may have to come off and some times the timming belt has to be loosend but as long as the timeing doesent get moved it should be ok to do its only if any thing on the engine part gets moved either the crank or the cam shaft parts move then the timeing will have to be done again hope this helps ivan

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump


The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck
