How do you adjust timing on a 2000 kia sephia

I had to replace the waterpump and had to pull off the timing belt. i put everthing back how it was but now it idles rough but when i increase the rpm it smooth out. when i put car into gear it wants to stall. at first it seem like it was a vacuum hose. only thing i moved that would cause motor to idle or run rough was moving the timing belt that may have tooken the time off. can you help.

These have to be exactly right. Cannot be off even one tooth. After getting the belt on, always rotate the engine manually by the crankshaft bolt two revolutions to make sure everything lines up under tension.

SOURCE: base idle speed adjustment....1KZ-TE 3.0 litre turbo.

Hi djay ,you need to check the vacuum pipes beneath the injector pump it they are intact and test them with a vacuum gauge. The work of this vacuum is such that when you put it drive the vacuum increases the idle speed slightly.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sephia clutch

this is a big job for someone who is not mechanically inclined but....here it goes go buy a new clutch new tranny fluid and a haynes manual at the auto parts store your going to have to drain and drop your tranny ... BUY THE CLUTCH WITH THE TOOL theres an alignment tool needed to align the plates n bearings start by pulling off both tires, brakes and both cv axels be sure to remove the intermediate shaft from the tranny on the passenger side (should come out with the axel passenger side only) so do yourself a favor and buy an impact gun with at least 500 ft lbs torque youll need it also have handy your 14mm 17mm and 19mm impact sockets and remember this job usually runs around 1,200 bucks at firestone also DO NOT remove the bolt in the middle of the front springs under the hood just the four around it and the will pop out no prob and wont need to be clamped remove the starter behind your engine its under the oil filter also if your new to this sorta thing its gonna take you about 3 days to do it buy the impact gun if ur in a hurry look at a pawn shop have your flywheel machined its going to be accessible and it needs it hope this helps dont forget the book which you should already have bought anyway its good for your torque specs which you will also need a torque wrench for the clutch also dont crack open ur tranny this isnt a honda
