2004 Kia Rio Timing Belt

I have a 2004 Kia Rio with 58K miles on it. The timing belt is in a good condition, no cracks or grease or anything. The car do shakes just a little, but I'm not sure this is the reason. Do I still need to replace it?

Typically timing belts need to be replaced every 60,000 miles, in order to prevent them from breaking or loosing teeth and leaving you stranded, or possibly damaging the engine. I doubt the timing belt is causing your engine vibration issue. I would suspect that a good tune up would take care of that problem.

How often should the timing belt be changed in a


25,000 to 30,000 miles is what I read somewhere.
I would do it at 15,000 intervals, due to the fact that "interference engines" are very close tolerances between the valves and pistons.
$30 belt or $1600 and up for rebuild or engine swap.

were the RPM's high(above 3000) when the belt broke? if so that would explain the engine failure. the car has an interference engine which means if the crank turns a few revolutions after the camshaft has stopped then it can cause some major engine damage.

When does the belt and timing belt need changed? How many miles for each?


On the 1.6L engine:
The timing belt should be replaced at 90,000 miles.
The drive belt should be inspected for wear or cracking every 30,000 miles. However I recommend that the drive belt be visually inspected every time the oil change is performed. It only takes a second to look at it and it keeps you aware of the belts condition on a more regular basis. This is important because there are certain conditions that can accelerate a belt's deterioration.

Timing belt for a 2004 kia rio cino 1.6 does the engine need to be removed?


No, the engine does not have to be removed. Know that this is an interference engine. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Replace at 60,000 miles except California cars, which should be replaced at 105,000 miles.
