I am putting on a new timing belt,need to know the aligned timing marks for a 2003 kia,rio 1.6l


.6L (VIN 3) & 2.0L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.

  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • Negative battery cable

    • Engine cover

    • Right-hand front wheel

    • Right-hand wheel well side cover

    • Accessory drive belts

    • Water pump pulley

    • Timing belt upper cover

  3. Turn the crankshaft pulley so cylinder No. 1 is at Top Dead Center (TDC). Align the pulley groove with the timing mark "T" of the timing belt cover.

  4. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • Crankshaft pulley

    • Crankshaft flange

    • Lower timing belt cover

    • Timing belt tensioner

    • Timing belt To install:Align the timing marks of the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets to ensure the No. 1 cylinder is at TDC.Temporarily install the timing belt tensioner.Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then inside the idler pulley, over the camshaft sprocket and then inside the timing belt tensioner.Apply tension to the timing belt by turning the tensioner in the clockwise direction so there is no slack in the belt on the tension side.Tighten the tensioner mounting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).Check the timing belt tension as follows:

    • 1.6L (VIN 3) engine: Push the tension side of the belt in horizontally with a moderate force, the timing belt cog end is approximately 1/2 of the tensioner mounting bolt head radius away from the bolt head center.

    • 2.0L engine: Push the tension side of the belt in horizontally with a moderate force, the timing belt cog end sags approximately 0.16-0.24 inches (4-6 mm).

  1. Turn the crankshaft two turns in the clockwise direction and realign the crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket timing marks.

Just curious, timing belt or chain. If belt when to change. Kia sedona 02 V-6. Thank you


Has a timing belt, Kia recommends replacement every 60,000 miles, also this engine in an interference engine, which valve to piston damage most likely will occur in the event of timing belt failure.

Was there scheduled maintenance due on the 2001 Kia Optima, example the timing belt?


The timing belt is due at 60,000 miles. This is real critical. If you are in nedd of a schedule to go by then email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com and I can send you a full schedule. Also send how many miles are currently on the vehicle and which engine(4 or 6 cylinder). DO NOT SKIMP ON THESE, USE THE HYUNDAI/KIA OIL FILTERS!! There are current recalls regarding the oil filters and the oil light on the dash. I have worked at the dealer as a Master Tech, so please heed this warning.

drive belt.
3. Remove P/S and/or A/C drive belt.
4. Loosen generator mounting bolts and adjusting bolt.
5. Remove generator bolts.
6. Remove water pump pulley.
7. Remove crankshaft pulley and timing belt guide plate.
8. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
9. Turn crankshaft so that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned
with mark on cylinder head cover.
NOTE: Do not move camshaft or crankshaft once timing marks have been correctly positioned.
11. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt.
12. Protect timing belt with a rag.
13. Remove tensioner pulley.
14. Remove timing belt.
NOTE: Mark the direction of timing belt rotation (on the timing belt) for proper reinstallation.
INSPECTION
NOTE: Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.
3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 inch (25 mm).
4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.
5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.
NOTE: Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure.
INSTALLATION
1. Install tensioner pulley.
NOTE: Replace tensioner spring whenever timing belt is replaced.
2. Pull tensioner pulley to its furthest point and tighten lock bolt.
3. Check that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
4. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned
with mark on cylinder head cover.
NOTE: If existing timing belt is being reused, install belt in proper rotation direction marked prior to removal.
5. Install timing belt onto timing belt pulley first, then idler pulley, exhaust camshaft pulley, intake camshaft pulley, and tensioner pulley in that
order.
6. Check that there is no looseness in belt between idler pulley and exhaust camshaft pulley or between intake and exhaust camshaft pulleys.
7. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt and allow tensioner spring to apply tension to timing belt.
NOTE: Do not add additional tension.

8. Tighten tensioner pulley lock bolt to specified torque.
Tightening torque: 28 - 38 ft. lbs. (38 - 51 Nm, 3.9 - 5.2 kg-m)
9. Rotate crankshaft two full revolutions (clockwise only) and align timing mark on timing belt pulley with timing mark on engine block.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley are aligned with marks on cylinder head cover.
11. If they are not aligned, remove timing belt and start process from tensioner installation.
12. Measure timing belt deflection by applying moderate pressure midway between camshaft pulleys. If deflection is not correct, repeat from
tensioner installation.
Deflection pressure: 22 lb. (98 N, 10 kg)
Deflection: 0.39 - 0.50 inch (11 - 13 mm)
