Timing Belt Kia Sedona

I've heard 60,000 miles to 100,000. Another said 90,000 miles before the change. Which is it for the Timing Belt? I live in California. I'm not sure why but our timing belts on the Kia are supposed to last that long. Maybe more freeway driving?

I took my wife's Kia Sedona in for service at a Kia dealer. He told me the timing belt need to be changed before 60,000 miles. Is this true?


Timing belts do need to be changed at mileage intervals set by the manufacurer. 60,000 miles sounds about right. Failure to change it may cause it to wear out and fail. Should that happen, you can cause serious damage to the engine up to needing a replacement. Look in your owners manual and it should give you the "service intervals".

Time belt how maney miles do you change it


Hello,

The timing belt of the car is to be changed after it has run 60000 miles. Try to change it once it is approaching the 60000 miles, if not it might damage the entire engine and it will cost You a lot more to replace the engine than replacing just the timing belt.

If You need the steps to replace the timing belt, You can call back for more assistance. I will be so glad to be of assistance to You once again.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

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.
