SOURCE: replacing an alternator belt on a 2006 kia sorento

So whats difficult about this -nothing the tensioner is the belt adjuster/tensioner ,use a ring spanner and use the ring end then lock another spanner over the end and turn the tensioner against the spring loading ,simple .watch it though as some use a left handed thread on the pulley

I STILL have my problem...I have a 2006 kia sorento lx 4x4 with a mitsubishi 3.5 that I just replaced timing belt, water pump, idler pulley, tension pulley, tensioner, I also just replaced crank posit


because you have replace engines but I imagine that you have used the crank and cam position sensors on the 3.5 but connected up to the kia ECM there is a possibility that the ecm is not reading those position sensors and not providing timing for the ECM . It will be reading as broken timing belt. I would suggest a scan of the fault codes to determine if there any sensors not reading correctly. You may have to find a speed shop that has CPU programming capabilities to reprogram the ECM/CPU to the different sensors.

How much to change timing belt on kia sorento 2006


This all depends on what engine you have and also if you are going to just do the belt.
this car , if you have a 100,000 miles or close you should do the job right, right meaning replace the timing belt ,water pump and timing belt pulleys and tensioner, this could run about $1200.00.

the same job with the smaller engine could be $800.00

if you just do the belt alone which is not the right way but can be done then it may cost about $500.00 -$600.00

Is 80000 miles the correct mileage for changing the timing belt(or chain} on a 2006 kia sedona lx v6 van? thanks


The 3.8 liter in the 2006 actually has a timing chain not a belt. So the chain doesn't need to replace what you may run into down the road is the tensioners having a problem as their is basically 3 chains in that engine. I would still take chains over belts any day though.
thank you and enjoy,

Does v6 sorento have timing belt


Your 06 Kia, with 3.5L engine V-6, has a timing belt, Kia recommends replacing every 60,000 miles, this is an interference engine, which piston to valve damage will occur due to timing belt failure, hope this was very helpful.

How to change a timeing belt on a 2006 Kia Sorento?


Kia engines are interference engines. If the Timing belt is not done exactly right you will destroy your engine. I don't recomend anyone do a timing belt unless you allready know exactly how to do it right.
I have done many , and made a SMALL mistake on my mazda last month and ended up having to rebuild the head and replace valves , guides , and seals.

Replacing drive belt for Kia Sorento


You have three belts on your sorento
one for the A/C
one for power steering
And one for the alternator

to remover the power steering and alternator you need to loosen the tensioner center nut, then loosen the tensioner adjuster bolt. its easier to explain with a diagram.
to remover the alternator belt, you have to do that from under the car, which means removing the lower engine cover. the same methods applies to the alternator belt, loosen the tension centre nut, then loosen the adjuster bolt.

by they way, sorentos with the new 3.8 engine have only one belt, thats 2007 and up.
have fun
