SOURCE: car dies when driving,check engine light comes on.

There is a good chance it could be your fuel pump , however if the check engine light is coming on and the dealer cant tell you what is wrong , try a different dealer or another shop. Second opinions never hurt.

SOURCE: timing belt broke at stop sign & car stopped.

First off, I hope that the timing belt is your only problem.  If it is, the timing belt will run about $62.  Labor will very from shop to shop.  If you call a local auto parts store they will be able to help you find a cheap repair dealer.  You can almost figure that labor will be about $80-100+ per hour.  I would also image that there will be a 2 hour minimum or something. 
The reason I said I hope that it is just your timing belt is that you have an interference engine.  This means that if your timing belt was to break, your piston would "interfere" with your valves inside your engine.  This could possibly cause you to need to purchase all new pistons, valves, pushrods, rocker arms, etc...Only a mechanic will be able to tell you what all you will need.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I wish you the best of luck and hope you will be able to get back on the road soon and back on your feet.  God Bless.

SOURCE: timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points

Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.

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

I had my timing belt changed after breaking on my 2004 Kia Optima, it caused valve damage and my bill was $1,295.00. About 4 months later it broke again causing the whole motor to explode now the car...


On smaller engines the timing belt should be checked regularly.When the belt breaks the camshaft stops turning and valves stay open at wrong time but the pistons keep moving and come up to top of cyclender and crash into the valves causing the first bit of damage.What I think happen to cause it to break again prematurly was somthing was still bent from first time causing resistance on belt which caused belt to break second time.These engines cant take that kind of abuse once never mind twice.I dont think second belt was installed wrong to cause this.Like I said the mechanic missed somthing bent or damaged the first time.But unfourtunatly this will be hard to prove.Unless you requested and still have old parts from first time work was done and can prove that it was mechanic neglegants.Good Luck.

Timing belt broke on 2005 Kia Optiima. Is the engine wrecked? worth it to replace engine?


that is an interference engine, so if it was running when it broke, chances are very good that the valves are bent, at least-in worst case situations, pistons can be damaged too, but I would have the head removed and have the valves redone-while off, the top of the engine can be checked out. Timing bests are supposed to be replaced every 60,000 miles.

I just had a man put a timing belt on my car and he said that now it won't start. It is a 2005 Kia spectra. It will not get any fire.


He may have put it on wrong, or left something disconnected. I would find another man to fix your car.

I bought a new timing belts due to teeth where missing.. I had poblems with the car.. It also needed a crank sensor Now the two knotches are not linning up with oneother (I was told it jumped time.) Idon't...


It may help to tell what engine you have???? what 2 notches are you referring to? Engine damage can result if the timing belt broke like that (bent valves) Why did it need a crank sensor? thats a strange coincidence.

Engine shut off, not getting any fire.


usually if no plugs are firing it would be a crank sensor but in the cam area you have a timing belt that keeps the timing between the crank and the cam if that has broken or stripped then it will not start and may have done some extensive damage to the engine.
