Question about Kia Carnival

2 Answers

Hello. I have a problem with my 2001 kia carnival. The top 2 pulleys are lining up but the problem I have is that the crankshaft has lost its mark and I am unsure how to line it up now?

I have a number of pictures off the internet, but it is not helping me with the mark. Any advice would be helpful?

Your engine has a electronic engine management system that uses pick ups and sensors for the fuel and ignition. your timing cannot be off.. even one tooth could ruin a engine. Do the spark plug thing to bring up TDC, then look very good for your bottom mark. That is the only correct way to do it , old school stuff no longer flush's with precise timing so valves don't eat pistons.

GO TO YOUR #1 piston remove plug take off valve cover, turn engine over until both valves over #1 cylinder are closed. NO TENSION ON VALVE SPRINGS BOTH ROCKER ARMS A LITTLE LOOSE BY HAND NO TENTION IS IMPORTANT HERE..THATS WHY BY HAND TURN AND LOOK AT SAME TIME TO GET IT EXCACT.Stop turning engine the #1 piston should be close to surface or head. Your engine now is very close to TDC.....GOOD LUCK..AND IF YOU HAVE A DISTRIBUTER REMOVE CAP NOTEING WHERE THE #1 PLUG WIRE IS LOCATED AND THE ROUTER UNDER NEATH SHOULD BE POINTING RITE AT # 1 CYLINDER AND WIRE ON CAP..ESPECIALLY CAP..IF NOT TIMINGS OFF..IT CAN BE A 180 OUT AND STILL RUN..BUT NOT CORRECT..IF THIS IS A DUAL OVER HEAD CAM ENGINE FORGET ALL I SAID AND TAKE IT TO A MECHANIC..I CANT EXPLAIN THAT PROCESS..TO DETAILED..GOOD LUCK

To install:
  1. Install the timing belt tensioner pulley, move the tensioner to its furthest point and tighten the lockbolt.
  2. Install the timing belt onto the pulleys, as follows, crankshaft pulley first, then the idler pulley, exhaust camshaft pulley, intake camshaft pulley, and the tensioner pulley.
  3. Loosen the tensioner pulley and allow the tensioner spring to apply tension on the belt, then tighten the lockbolt to 28-38 ft. lbs. (38-51 Nm).
  4. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise 2 turns and be sure all marks are still correctly aligned.
  5. Install the remaining components in the revere order of the removal noting the following torque specifications:

    Crankshaft pulley: 9-13 ft. lbs. (12-17 Nm) Water pump pulley: 9-13 ft. lbs. (12-17 Nm)

Where can I buy replacement Head Bolts for Kia Carnival 2.9 Diesel 2001? PLEASE someone help!!


Why do want new head bolts ? never mind the pundits its just another excuse to fleece you soak the old ones in diesel and then refit ,no problem ,Never fitted new ones on all the ones i have done ,watch the little idler pulley on the front cover and dont break it ,also make sure antifreeze min 50% is used and make sure the keyway on the bottom pulley hasnt opened up the groove in the crankshaft ,this is more hyundai fault than a kia but it can happen so look for it

How to position the timing belt crank shafts of 1997 mazda mpv


Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Remove the wheel on the passenger side of the vehicle using the drive ratchet and a socket. Remove the passenger side splash shield, using the drive ratchet and a 10mm socket. 2 Remove the accessory belt(s), using a wrench to loosen the tension. Unscrew the bolt from the crankshaft pulley, using the drive ratchet and a socket. Slide the crankshaft pulley and the timing belt guide washer directly behind it off the crankshaft.3 Remove all the 10mm bolts in the top and bottom timing belt covers. Remove the covers. The drive ratchet and a 10mm socket works well for this. 4 Push the crankshaft pulley on the crankshaft just enough to engage the keyway. Turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise until the timing mark on the top camshaft sprocket, which is marked with a line on the sprocket with a number 1 next to it, is lined up with the pointer straight up on top of the cover to the rear of the sprocket. Once the top mark is lined up, the crankshaft pulley's semi-circle mark should be lined up with the triangular pointer on the block. The marks on the crankshaft pulley should be straight up and the keyway should also be straight up. Remove the crankshaft pulley. 5 Loosen the tensioner bolt with a wrench, pull the tensioner to the left, away from the belt and loosely tighten the bolt to hold it in place. Remove the timing belt. 6 Install the timing belt counter-clockwise starting at the crankshaft pulley and move upward over the outside the water pump, on the inside the guide pulley and over the top of the camshaft, ending on the inside the tensioner. The main thing when installing a timing belt is to ensure the belt is as tight as possible opposite the tensioner. Get the belt tight between the crank sprocket and the cam sprocket so the tensioner can take out all the slack without moving the timing marks.7 Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner to apply pressure to the belt. Use your hand to apply a slight pressure to the tensioner toward the belt and tighten the tensioner bolt. Check the belt tension to ensure it is not too tight or too loose. Check the timing marks again to ensure they still align. If the timing marks are not lined up, loosen the tensioner, move it back and repeat the last procedure over again until the belt is tensioned properly with no misalignment of the timing marks. 8 Install the crankshaft pulley temporarily and turn the pulley two complete revolutions, once again aligning the mark on the crankshaft pulley. Ensure the timing mark is still lined up perfectly on the camshaft sprocket. Reinstall the remaining parts in reverse order of removal

Turn crankshaft so that timing marks on belt pulley are aligned with marks on engine . The 'I' on intake pulley is on top and the 'E' on exhaust pulley is also on top.Align crankshaft pulley with mark on engine.If your timing belt is broken then major damage to the engine has occored and kiss it good bye.
