It has a timing belt, if you are gong to replace the belt. It's a good thing to replace the water pump to since it needs to come off. Water pump's are not that expensive, but the labor is and since your going to have to remove it. Might as well replace it is what i tell everyone and then you know your good for a few more trouble free years. Good luck and hope this helps.

It has a timing belt on a 2.9 CRDi engine and replacement interval is every 60000miles, there is no need to replace the water pump as it is not driven by the timing belt only by the fan belt so as long as it does not leak there is no need to worry about it.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona Timing belt and plug replacement

I'm not familiar with the Sedona but it's very likely that it is much easier to do the plugs when the engine is disassembled for the belt job. If the plugs are due fairly soon anyway, it would save you a lot of money if you just pay for the plugs now and you don't have to pay for all the labor to get at that area of the engine again.

SOURCE: 2003 kia sedona timing belt

It's a bit tricky for the home mechanic. Plan on an entire weekend to remove everything, including the engine mount. You'll need to strip the engine including the harmonic balancer (air tools). I suggest replacing the water pump and all belts/pulleys at the same time. You''ll need the usual torque wrenches, sockets, and most of all patience. Aligning the timing marks is the most challenging and critical, but you can hold the cams in place with washers and bolts while you thread the belt. My replacement is on 25,000 so far. I'm not really looking forward to doing it again at 120,000... :) Read the steps over and over before attempting. http://www.kiatechinfo.com/

SOURCE: Just curious, timing belt or chain. If belt when

According to the manual it should be changed at 102,000 KM or 63379.86160820806 miles.:)
One thing I have notices though is that there are many stories of these belts failing earlier. :(

Is 80000 miles the correct mileage for changing the timing belt(or chain} on a 2006 kia sedona lx v6 van? thanks


The 3.8 liter in the 2006 actually has a timing chain not a belt. So the chain doesn't need to replace what you may run into down the road is the tensioners having a problem as their is basically 3 chains in that engine. I would still take chains over belts any day though.
thank you and enjoy,

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.

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
