2004 Kia Optima won't start. Took off from stop and the car died. Now it cranks over but will not start.


Often caused by broken timing belt. Recommend removing the timing cover and checking camshaft timing marks. If you need instructions, please send engine size and type.

2001 Kia was runing fine then just died it cranks but will not start


If you have not replaced the timing belt and your car has 50,000 miles or more the problem is a broken timing belt. I don't know the exact reason but Kia timing belts will not last more than 60,000 miles.

I HAVE A 2002 KIA SPORTAGE. IT STALLED ON ME.


Hello mrhbollinger: My name is Roger and I will help you. You did not say Exactly what happened. If you were driving down the road and the engine died? Or if you pulled up to a stop and the engine died? I would check a few things first. Does the engine have over 60,000 to100,000 miles on it? If so I would look at the timing belt as a problem. Check the compression Compression should be around 160 psi. Any thing less then a 100 psi. the cylinder will not fire. Also keep in mind that this engine is a interference engine. This means should the timing belt break. The engine will suffer severe internal engine damage. By that I mean any valve that was open when timing belt broke will be damaged. Piston damage will also accrue. If the timing belt is not th problem I would look at the fuel system you should have 43 psi at the test port.I would also test for spark at the spark plug wires. If you have none and you check spark first. Check compression to make sure the timing belt is not the problem. If you remove the oil cap and can see the the camshaft. Have some one crank the engine over. If the valves do not move the timing belt is the problem. Should you need further help please just ask Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

2000 kia sportage engine wont start when hot it cranks and when it bucks the starter it will start


sounds **** it jumped timing bad belt dont start it cause you run the risk of smashing a valve while it is out of time this is my thought
  1. Apply the parking brake.
  2. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature.
  3. Turn off all electrical loads.
  4. Connect a tachometer and verify idle speed is between 750-850 RPM.
  5. Connect a timing light to number one cylinder.
  6. Verify the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the timing mark on the timing belt cover are aligned at 4°BTDC.
