Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
One of the timing belt upper seals is blown and i need to replace it, i have the gears and belt explosed
Lined up all the timing marks before you do anything. get a new timing belt as the old one is contaminated with oil and will fail very soon. When you pull the belt off it will be of utmost importance that you do not rotate the cam shaft at all or you will bend valves. so use something to lock the cam gear while you undo and nuts on the shaft or while removing the gear

you need a gear puller to pull the gear off. but to change the seal for the crankshaft, you only remove the timing gear and change the seal on the cover that you removed. there is nor need to pull the gear itself. if you pull the gear, you still can't change any other bearings or seals without removing the heads and manifold.

Once the crankshaft pullley bolt is taken out, It should just pull off. DO NOT use a puller as it may cause the pulley to seperate. Best thing to do is to spray the center with a penetrating oil like PB Blaster and then using a rubber mallet, gently tap one edge of the pulley while pulling on the other side. You may have to rotate the pulley about 90 degrees and do it again.
