Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
Hello bkglenn: My name is Roger and I will help you. This engine is listed as a interference motor. What this means is if the belt breaks and the engine is turned over you WILL BEND THE VALVES. This is very expensive to repair. The last one we took apart all valves were bent. If you do a compression test you will more then likely find zero compression. This will answer a lot of questions for you. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received as this is how we con tell you received the correct answer to your question. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
