Question about 2005 Kia Optima
Timing belt had missing teeth and slipped. We pulled the head and there seem to be a couple of fresh strike marks but the valves look fine. What are the chances of just replacing the belt, putting it all back together (with fresh gaskets) and having a running car?
I would change the belt and do a compression check before starting the engine. That will show any distorted valves.
