It's a bit of work for most unless you are a mechanic. I changed my 2003 kia (v-6) Is your a v6? CAUTION: be careful not to lose your timing marks on you dual overhead cams. They will spin a bit when you remove your old belt, due to the tension on the valve springs, so first, turn your crank pulley to the timing mark at top dead center. Also be careful for the timing cover. These are made of really cheap carbon fiber material that will erode upon handling....Again, unless you feel very confident in you mechanical abilities, don't try it....I will soon replace spark plugs on our piece of junk, and I'm not looking forward to that either., but I'm sure for the dealers cost of over $300, I can do it myself, even though I have to remove the whole intake assy.

if you have never done one take it to a shop because if you have the timing off a little you take a chance of bending valves then you would need a new head
