Your mech is correct; this vehicle utilizes a strainer on the fuel pump only, and a submersible fuel pump. To access this, usually the tank has to be removed, and the pump can be removed from the top of the tank.

The recommended replacement interval in 60k miles for normal service, less for severe duty. Its not like the belt is going to fail at exactly 60k miles so if you go over it's ok. Having said that the engine in your Kia is an interference engine. What that means is that if the belt does fail it very likely to be expensive. A rebuild at least and more probably an engine replacement.
In an interference engine when the belt fails there is not enough room between the still moving pistons and the suddenly still valves so the piston destroys the valves and usually itself.
So just play it safe, when you get 60k miles schedule the replacement.

In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.
You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.
