You need to check all of the other pulleys in the system to make sure they spin freely.

Pulleys are not aligned correctly, use a laser pointer with a magnetic piece that fits in the groove of two pulleys, the laser will shine on the second pulley and you can see if they are aligned, if not they will keep breaking. You can get this on line or in an auto parts store it's called " Gates Drive Align laser alignment tool. "
To align the pulley you have to adjust the bolt length using washers, or grind the mounting tabs on the alternator to give you more clearance or if it's the power steering pulley you will have to adjust how far in or out that pulley is mounted with a special puller/installer.

SOURCE: How to replace Alternator on 2001 Kia Sephia

You may try removing the engine mount and slightly raising the engine. It will give you much more room to work. I had to replace the timing belt on mine and I resisted this advice for a while. Once I finally did, the job went much quicker. I placed a jack under the oil pan (with a block of wood between jack and oil pan) and then upped the jack until it just made contact. Then I removed the engine mount directly in front of the serpentine belt. You can then slowly jack the engine up to gain more room. I can't remember where the alternator is on the sephia (up high on the motor or down low). If it's low, you could just lower the jack slowly to gain more room.

SOURCE: Timing belt replacement for 2001 Kia Sephia

For California models recommended at 105,000 miles.Belt needs to be inspected at 60,000 and 90,000, miles and replace at 105,000 miles.
Except California replace at 60,000 miles. Note 1.8L engine is a interference engine, if timing belt goes bad will cause major internal engine damage.

How do I replace the serpentine belt on a 1999 Kia Sephia?


1.8L Engine
  1. Using a belt tension gauge, measure the drive belt tension and compare with the following specifications:
    1. Alternator belt (new): 86-103 lbs. (383-461 N)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 68-86 lbs. (304-383 N)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 110-132 lbs (491-589 N)
    4. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (used): 95-110 lbs. (422-491 N)

      Fig. Using a tension gauge to measure the alternator belt tension - 1.8L engines (click HERE for zoom)


  2. Using the deflection method, apply moderate pressure (about 22 lbs) halfway between the pulleys, and compare with the following specifications.
    1. Alternator belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    4. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
  3. If the specifications fall outside the ranges given, adjust the belt as follows:
    1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and adjusting bolt.
    2. Adjust the alternator to get the specified belt deflection.
    3. Tighten the bolts, then recheck the tension.

I got a 2000 kia sephia 117xxx miles on it and i got a copule of problems.. car starts and doesnt starts, i replaced the starter and still starts or doesnt start. could it be the alternator? also the...


I can't fully answer your question. But I can for sure tell you it is not the alternator, if it were the alternator the car wouldn't randomly start. It may be something as simple as a loose or half rotted wire that makes contact randomly. If you have the resources look for any broken or damaged wire... if you are near an autozone or advanced auto parts, they can preform a diagnostics test. The test will tell you what the problem is. I think you should look at your Mass Air Flow Sensor as well.

As far as the squeeking goes... persistent cold start fan belt squeak... slight misalignment of steering pump biases belt to front edge of crankshaft pulley... since there doesn't appear to be a 'y' axis adjustment, must presume pulley itself may be fatigued??
