Timing Belt Service 2002 Kia Sedona 3.5 liter
1. Remove the engine cover
2. Remove the drive bell.
3. Remove the idler pulley, crankshaft pulley, power
steering pulley and tensioner
4. Remove the upper and lower timing belt cover.
5. Support the engine with garage jack or special tool, and
then remove the engine
Caution: Take care not to deform the engine oil pan.
6. Remove the auto tensioner.
Notice: Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing
mark to get the No.1
cylinder's piston be in TðC position (compression stroke).
At this time, the timing
marks of the camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover
should coincide with each
'. Remove the timing bell.
Notice: When re-using timing bell, make sure of marking the
rotating direction on
the belt so as to install correctly.
Method of installing timing bell and auto tensioner
1. Install the idler pulley to the engine support lower
2. Install the tensioner arm, shaft and plain washer to the
Tightening torque: 35 -55 Nm (350-550 kg-cm, 25.82 -40.57
3. Install the crankshaft sprocket.
Notice: Confirm if timing marks coincide with.
Caution: Align the spacer with a pin, and assemble it
exerting even force not to
deform the crankshaft sensing blade.
4. Install the camshaft sprocket. Align it like initial
state as shown.
Caution: When installing camshaft sprocket, tighten the bolt
part of camshaft to prevent it from tuning.
5. Install the auto tensioner to the oil pump case.
Caution: At this time the auto tensioner's set pin should be
6. Align the timing marks of each sprocket and install the
timing bell, maintaining the
proper belt tension between each shaft in this order.
Crankshaft sprocket -> Idler
pulley -> Left bank exhaust camshaft sprocket -> Left
bank intake camshaft sprocket
-> Water pump pulley -> Right bank intake camshaft sprocket
-> Right bank exhaust
camshaft sprocket -> Tensioner pulley.
1 As a result of this, position of No.1 cylinder comes to
2 As each camshaft sprocket tends to rotate by itself, pay
attention not to injure
fingers or other bodily part. Especially be careful with the
3 In case the right bank camshaft sprocket rotates
excessively, be cautious not to
rotate more than the initial stable position. Always align
timing mark of rotating
sprocket by turning it reversely. In this case, pay
attention not to rotate It
reversely from the initial position. (if. with one sprocket
fixed at No.1
compression TDC position, the other sprocket is rotated one
clockwise or counterclockwise, then the intake and exhaust
valve might intetfere
7. After installing the timing bell, exert the reverse
directed force to the right bank
exhaust camshaft sprocket to give tension on the belt.
Holding this state, recheck it
each timing mark is correctly positioned.
S. With tensioner pulley slightly pushing the belt down,
tighten the center bolt
9. Pull out the auto tensioner set pin
How to adjust timing belt tension
1. Tension setting (While auto tensioner is not operating:
And set pin being kept
1) After rotating crankshaft 1/4 revolution reversely, rotate it clockwise to position
No.1 cylinder at TDC. Then, loosen the center bolt and give
the belt 50 kg-cm of
tension with tensioner pulley socket (Two pins are attached)
and torque wrench.
While maintaining this state, tighten the center bolt to the
Center bolt standard torque 43 - 55 Nm (430 - 550 kg-cm,
31.72 - 40.57 ft. lbs.)
2) Pull out the auto tensioner fixing pin.
2. How to check tension (While auto tensioner is operating:
and fixing pin being
1) After rotating crankshaft 2 revolutions clockwise to position
No.1 cylinder at
TDC wait for about 5 minutes, and measure the amount of
protruding of the auto
Caution: This is "leak down" time for the auto tensioner rod
to protrude 1mm
when tension caused by rotation of the crankshaft has
2) Check if the amount of rod protruding is in the range of
3.8 -4.5 mm.
3. Recheck if each sprocket is within the specified range.
Notice: ¡fit is not within the specified range, repeat from
procedure 6 as service
