Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Buy a manual or go to alldatadiy.com and buy it. $30 dollars is a lot cheaper than having to replace an engine because of missed timing marks. I use alldata, I buy it by the car. If I had this car on there I would give you the info. Sorry I don't.

There are no timing marks. Timing is done using special tools to hold the crank at top center and a tool to hold each camshaft in position. the cam sprockets are not pinned to the cams. there are also dummy tensioners installed to take up the slack till the tightening is done. Also there are chains at the back of the motor that can only be timed with the motor out of vehical.

There should be plated links on those chains too. There is an index dot in both cams on each head that set at the twelve o'clock position.
