I'm not sure if you are asking how much the belt is or how much to change the belt.

To purchase the belt from Kia is approximately $65, to have the dealer do the work would be approximately $400. An independent auto shop would be less.

If the belt snaps on your Kia it can ruin parts in the engine. Kia recommends changing it every 65K.

Autozone showed two timing belts for the Kia Rio. One was priced at $44.99 and the other was priced at $50.99. Hope this info helps you and best wishes.

It depends on which engine you have, but it seems that the belt itself is about $30 from Rockauto.com. I would recommend getting the timing kit as well, which is an extra $70 and that includes all new pulleys which keep the belt tight. This is very important in an interference engine like yours. Which means if the timing belt snaps while the engine is running you will damage the engine and can get very expensive. The kit is cheap insurance. Also, you need the belt on top of that as it is not included in the kit. So expect to pay about $100 if you go for both.

SOURCE: replacing timing belt and timing after of a kia rio

If you have not removed the distributor, generally, the timing should be as it was (assuming that you have properly indexed the belt pulleys.) Therefore, the engine should start and run after you finish the job.
If for some reason you did change the timing before the belt failed, set the crank pulley at "0" and check that the distributor rotor is pointing to #1 spark plug tower on the cap. This should be sufficient to get you in the "ballpark" Get a manual... if timing is adjustable it will be in there.(as well as lots of other useful stuff!)

INSPECTION
NOTE: Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.
3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 inch (25 mm).
4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.
5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.
NOTE: Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure.

Where is the Timing Belt on a 2003 Kia Rio exactly???


If you are planning on replacing the timing belt and are not even sure where to find on the engine then please DONT attempt to replace it on your own. Replacing the timing belt requires knowledge of timing marks and tensioner adjustments. It does not simply come off and back on, it has to be aligned up properly with marks on the camshaft and crankshafts. Please leaave this to someone who knows! PS: the timing belt is located behind the plastic covers on the left hand side of the engine (looking from the front)

Timing belt tensioner


On the Rio 2002, the tensionner is only used to apply pressure to the timing belt (installation) and cannot be adjusted. Once install the tensionner is "auto adjust" using a spring. If you need to adjust it,may be it time to change the timing belt KIT. Around 60,000 M.
