SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

Is the 2003 Kia Sephia engine 0 tolerence, will the valve be bent if the timing belt breaks?


The timing belt should be replaced to avoid the possibility of bent valves if the belt fails. This is normally performed as preventative maintenance when the vehicle has approximately 100,000 miles. However, to reassure Kia owners, I drove my own 2003 Kia Spectra 170,000 miles without performing this maintenance so I can attest to the durability of the factory belt.

It is a gamble to attempt to go beyond the normal service life of the timing belt.

Does the 2003 Kia Sedona have a Timing Belt or a Timing Chain


It has a timing belt, if you are gong to replace the belt. It's a good thing to replace the water pump to since it needs to come off. Water pump's are not that expensive, but the labor is and since your going to have to remove it. Might as well replace it is what i tell everyone and then you know your good for a few more trouble free years. Good luck and hope this helps.

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
