Question about Kia Carens

1 Answer

I just bought a Kia Carens Diesel Auto 2003 model LX. Can you tell me if this has a cam belt or a chain? If a cam belt, what are the recommended miles to get a new belt fitted?

I need to know at what milage the cam belt, if it has one, must be renewed.

Check the timing cover and if it is plastic it will be a belt operation. If it is aluminium and sealed off then it will be a chain. Belts are recommended for a change at 60.000 miles (100.000 klms) but this depends on driving conditions ( constant high rpms) and oil on the belts ( oil reduces the servicability of a rubber belt considerably)

SOURCE: Cam belt change on a kia sedona recommended milage

The recommended interval for changing the timing belt is in the owner's manual. Generally, this is every 60,000 miles.

P.S. I found the data on the internet and, it is indeed 60,000 miles.

SOURCE: does a kia rio diesel 56 plate need the timing belt changing or has it got a chain

The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

I eventually found the answer to my problem on a website called kia-forums.com telling me to open the glove box and pull it sharply and backwards.it disconnects from the plastic hinges. The filters are easy to replace by unclipping the cover which is easy to see. This is for a 2004 kia carens

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.
