Icant get my 2001 kia rio in time after changing my timing belt


Your going to have to take the belt back off and line up your marks. The crank, oil pump, cams, etc. all have marks that need aligned with marks on the block. If they are not all lined up you will never get it timed any other way. Also I hope you made sure to block the cams when you removed the belt so they didnt turn on their own. I hope I could be of some help. Good luck

Need timing marks and ignition wiring digram on 2.0 dohc 99 Kia sportage


I can help with your timing marks.
the bottom pulley on your timing belt has a **** grove on the back part of the pulley on the seal plate behind pulley should be a mark or a triangle align those two marks
for the camshaft pulleys there should be an "l" marking on the left pulley for intake and an "E" marking for the right for exhaust side allingn each marking to the grove just above the pulleys on the seal plate directly behind the pulleys

install timing belt and make sure it isnt loose on tension side which is the right side of belt if reusing old belt make sure you have marked belt on which way belt is turning

loosen tensioner lock bolt turn crankshaft two complete revolutions in direction of rotation

make sure that marks are correctly aligned still if not start back to step one.

if ok turn crankshaft to align "S" mark of right pulley or the exhaust pulley to same mark on seal plate directly behind pulley

good luck and god speed let me know how it went

Kia sportage timing belt


sounds like you should be in time. is there any markings on the cover, behind the cam gears that the marks should line up at 12 o clock. make sure that crank is lined up to TDC or its mark. the 2 dots may noy be EXACTLY lined up but will be close when the belt is properly tensioned. if its of 1 tooth it would be obvious like 1/2' off. did you have the cam gears off???? if the cams have dowel pins on them , make sure they are at 12 oclock also.

1998 kia sportage. changed timing belt. now no compression.


WOW - DID THE BELT BREAK WHILE IT WAS RUNNING IF SO THE VALVES ARE BEND THATS WHY YOU HAVE NO COMPRESSION.
IF YOU HAD THE BELT REPLACED AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE TIMING MARKS RIGHT YOU CAN STILL BEND THE VALVES.
9 TIMES OUT OF 10 THE DAMAGE IS JUST TO THE VALVES AND NOT THE HEAD OR ENGINE. BUT IF YOU HAVE TO PULL THE HEAD MY ADVISE IS TO HAVE THE HEAD CHECKED FOR CNY CRACKS
