Question about 2004 Kia Sorento
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?
What engine? Diesel or petrol?

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....
