Yes...but hopefully not completely blown...these vehicles have what they call interference engines...where pistons and valves have little to no when the timing belt fails...valves have a high risk of slamming into the pistons. Hopefully your mechanic has already ran a compression check on your cylinders...if not please ask him makes a difference between a $3000 motor and a $400 timing belt install kit.....hope I helped!!!

I'd say you might have a cam or crank sensor going bad. These will usually throw a check engine light. If it just stalls on you after it warms up or has a long crank time this may be your problem.

My 05 Kia Sedona keeps wanting to stall on me check engine light would come and go but now it is on permantley. Got a diagnostic and they said it was cylinder #4 spark plug or cool pack. Replaced the plug....

That would be your crank shaft sensor. It needs to be replaced. Unless your very mechanically inclined I wouldn't even attempt to do the job yourself. Also when a cps goes out you will get a misfire a lot of times. Thats what its going to be. I would bet $ on that. Good luck

remove and clean carbon from idle control valve, it may be sticking, and also check fuel filter for clogging up. as for the injectors a good injector cleaner used often, usually helps quite a bit. I own a 2000 malibu and it idles at 700 to 750 rpms. 3.1 v6. the dealers want to rip people off! thats my opinion. good-luck!! add injector cleaner at least once a month.

Stalling and Jerking

I would check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced for awhile. The last 2 fuel filters I changed, the gas coming out of it looked like black ink.
