It's customary to change timing belt and water pump anywhere between 80K-120K miles.  I typically try to get them done on my vehicles before I reach 100K unless I'm having trouble before that.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating.

Was there a problem with the 2006 kia sportage timing belts

Not really, as it doesn't show in results. Recommended that you change them at 100k miles, they break at 112k. The engine is an interference engine, so a broken belt equals bent valves.

At what milage do i need to change the timing belt

Hello helenanddere: My name is Roger and I will help you. You did not say which motor is in your KIA so I will give you the specs on both motors.According to Autodata both the 2.0 and the 2.7 engines both have the same check and replacement intervals. KIA recommends check and replacement if necessary every 40,000 miles, which ever occurs first and replacement every 60,000 miles or 72 months, which ever occurs first.
This is a known INTERFERENCE motor.What that means is if the belt should break. Major internal damage will occur. Piston and valve damage is most likely to occur and be a major expense. Should you need further help, please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Cam belt change on a kia sedona recommended milage

The recommended interval for changing the timing belt is in the owner's manual. Generally, this is every 60,000 miles.


P.S. I found the data on the internet and, it is indeed 60,000 miles.

Timing belt

The timing belt should be changed every 60.000 Miles (100,000 Km). If it breaks, you will have a LARGE repair bill to repair the bent valves.

If yours has 85,000 Miles on it, you're lucky it hasn't broken yet. Get it done ASAP!
