Question about Kia Sorento

1 Answer

I have to replace my water pump on my 03 Kia Sorento. I am being told that it should be covered under the 100,000 power train warranty by the shop. I called Kia who stated it has nothing to do with the power train???? The car only has 55,000 on it, seems odd the water pump would go so soon.

03 kia sorento Engine knocking after replacing water pump oil pump and timing belt


Who did the work? take it back. If it's DIY double check your work. Knoking as in metalic engine , or knocking as in gas preignition. If gas preignition, timing belt is off a few notches. If it's similar to this google: 2003 kia sorento interference engine
You may have valve timing off so much that your pistons are running into the valves. Bad news!

How much to change timing belt on kia sorento 2006


This all depends on what engine you have and also if you are going to just do the belt.
this car , if you have a 100,000 miles or close you should do the job right, right meaning replace the timing belt ,water pump and timing belt pulleys and tensioner, this could run about $1200.00.

the same job with the smaller engine could be $800.00

if you just do the belt alone which is not the right way but can be done then it may cost about $500.00 -$600.00

Yes, time to do these things.
FYI - you can purchase a complete kit for Water pump replacement which includes the timing belt, tensioner, gaskets, etc. You can't get to the water pump without first removing these items anyway, so do it before the pump fails or worse, the timing belt breaks and grenades your interference fit engine.

Plugs are a piece of cake and it's time for those as well.
Replace coolant, and while you're at it, the thermostat.

I hope this helps.

Dealer is recommending a new timing belt on my 2005 Kia Sorento.


its at dealer cost if they dont do the work i think it voids the warranty...if you go to a private shop you should be able to get it done much cheaper.but may void the warranty if hey say they have to do the work

2004 KIA SORENTO, i HAVE JUST HAD THE TIMING BELT WATER PUMP AND THE CRANK SENSOR REPLACED. NOW WHEN IT IDLES AND JUST START TO WARM UP IT SOUNDS LIKE A LIFTER STARTS TO TAP AND THE OIL LIGHT COMES ON....


i paid $1200 to do timing belt & waterpump .i could of done work myself but warranty requires licensed shop to do it to comply. if funds are low go to a shop and apply for credit. firestone,midas ect.they are rip offs but if approved a payment plan helps the pain
