The belt is loose but not turning you say

You turned the motor over by hand?

Is the crank pulley without a key to drive it?

    Yes Peter i have done these kind of kobs myself. You have to take the timing cover off and other things that are in the way. You will also need a wheel piller to remove the bottom pulley. And it does have a key in it so it only goes on one way. You will also have a tension pulley you will have to loosen up in order to remove ya timing belt. Make sure you dont turn the cam or crank when you remove the belt because it will knock ya car out of time.

If you have antifreeze in ya timing belt cover it can only be one thing. Your water pump seal is going bad. You will not see it if it is not under pressure but it will leak. It's not a bad job to do if you know what ya doing but if you dont it can be a night mare. When you change your water pump change the timing baelt along with it because the antifreeze will rot the belt and it will break. Leaving you beside the road wait for a tow truck.

I have a 97 Sephia with what sounds like the same configuration. The tube is for the heater and there is an "O" ring on the metal tube that goes bad over time. You can replace the gasket by removing the metal tube from the engine, or the water neck and replace the o ring.

My 2006 kia sportage lost power while driving. It has fuel and spark. The engine cranks but won't turn over. cylinders show no compression and the only trouble code is for crank position sensor.


No compression and no start with a cam sensor code makes me think that you have a broken timing belt. If true, there has been some engine damage. The pistons will hit the valves and cause bent valves/ holes in pistons.

How to drop the drive shaft 2006 kia sportage not LX v6 4wd and 2wd push button for 4wd have tow dolly want to put front wheels on dolly any problems with doing that thank you


This is what I would do; Drive it on to dolly. Secure the front tires to the dolly have it ready to tow. Go under the Sportage remove the 4 nuts and bolts attaching the drive shaft to the rear differential. Disconnect the drive shaft and ziptie it to the chassis above rear differential. Leaving the front of the drive shaft in the transmission will prevent it leaking trans fluid. Ready to go!

1998 kia sportage 4WD engine turns but wont turn over (dosent even try) it just makes a winding sound and leaking coolant around harmonic balancer?


Sounds like your water pump leaking and a broken timing belt. The water pump runs off the timing belt, and sounds like your water pump took out the belt. The winding noise you hear sounds like the engine crank turning but not the cam shaft, broken belt, no compression. Have someone watch the harmonic while you try to start it. If it's turning, that's your problem.

I have a 99 Kia Sportage. It will not start and is making a whining sound. I installed a new starter and it still is making the same whining noise. Is the engine blown? Do I need to install some shims?...


can be a broken timing belt this is prone to breakage why ? here the thing 99 kia sportage are all twin cams that mean if the belt breaks it is most likely to cause cylinder damage so remove the front cover you dont have to do it all the way but just to access the timing belt with a screw driver can you push of the timing belt with little to no effort if you can the belt is broken now since you already crank it get a crayon and mark it crank the engine did that crayon mark move? if it did its a good thing and lets go to the starter can you access the crank pulley or if you a stick shift can some one push start you if you can move the crank pulley at least 1/4 of the way then crank the engine you may have a dead spot on the flywheel by the way there is no shim
