    we will be driving along and the car just dies, after a few minutes of not starting it will start back up and run fine, the gear indicator (D4) will fade when giving it gas and then fade when letting off on the peddle. 170,000 miles, timing belt was replaced at 120,000 miles.

    This sounds like an electrical problem. Have a electrician to check your alternator to see its charging properly and and the output voltage to your distributor and spark plugs

There are a lot of reasons this can happen.Not much detail to work with. Does it start right up after it quits and run fine for a while? Is the problem random and intermittent? If so a good electrician is needed. There is a "crash switch" on most if not all modern vehicles that shuts off the fuel pump in a crash.These switches sometimes malfunction and cause random shutdowns. If you are a mechanic you will know how to troubleshoot these issues. If you are not there is not enough space here to tell you what to do. The timing belt will not cause random failures. If it jumps time it is permanent and sometimes catastrophic. Replace timing belts per the manufacturers recommendations or if you are qualified and it is accessible inspect periodically and replace as required.

My 2000 Quest has 170,000 miles and the timing belt broke while I was driving it. Luckily there was no damage to the engine. I want to trade it in and my husband wants to keep. We have not kept up with...

This engine is freewheeling, as requested by Ford for the joint venture program with the Mercury Villlager. So, no engine damage if timing belt breaks. Just install a new belt and maybe the water pump while you are therre and new other belts. It will run another 100,000 miles.

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.

Car has 170,000 miles and it all of a sudden won't

Could be the belt. Take the belt cover loose and see if it's turning when someone cranks it.

2001 Kia was runing fine then just died it cranks but will not start

If you have not replaced the timing belt and your car has 50,000 miles or more the problem is a broken timing belt. I don't know the exact reason but Kia timing belts will not last more than 60,000 miles.

When should a timing belt be replaced on a 2033 Kia Sorento w/ 3.5L engine?

Timing belt replacement is expensive. Usually nobody chooses to have it done, unless there a timing cover gasket fails, or some other reason to work in the area of the internal timing belt.

If you are speaking of the serpentine belt, every 45-60k.
