Hello
Although the 2.0 kia engine is an interference engine.(valve bender) The
odd's that you have bent valves depend greatly on how high the rpm's
where when the belt broke, if you where on the hi way the odd's sway
against you, around town they swing in your favor. That said, the kia's
survival rate for this problem is pretty good compared to many other
rubber band driven engines. Hope this helps.

How can you tell if its the engine or timing chain that is broke on a 2002 kia sportage


If you can't remove a dust cover to view the Timing Belt you can remove the valve cover and watch the valves while your cranking. If the lifters and valves aren't functioning then the Timing belt is broken. If they do work your problem is elsewhere.

I have a 2002 Kia sportage 2wd the timing belt broke I replaced it my self. Engine started no knocks or anything but the timing belt creeps backward on the cams and rub the wall of the cover. What did I do...


A pulley or the tensioner isnt straight. Maybe why the old one broke?? you want to replace anything the belt touches while you have it apart. pulleys, tensioner, water pump.

I HAVE A 2002 KIA SPORTAGE. IT STALLED ON ME.


Hello mrhbollinger: My name is Roger and I will help you. You did not say Exactly what happened. If you were driving down the road and the engine died? Or if you pulled up to a stop and the engine died? I would check a few things first. Does the engine have over 60,000 to100,000 miles on it? If so I would look at the timing belt as a problem. Check the compression Compression should be around 160 psi. Any thing less then a 100 psi. the cylinder will not fire. Also keep in mind that this engine is a interference engine. This means should the timing belt break. The engine will suffer severe internal engine damage. By that I mean any valve that was open when timing belt broke will be damaged. Piston damage will also accrue. If the timing belt is not th problem I would look at the fuel system you should have 43 psi at the test port.I would also test for spark at the spark plug wires. If you have none and you check spark first. Check compression to make sure the timing belt is not the problem. If you remove the oil cap and can see the the camshaft. Have some one crank the engine over. If the valves do not move the timing belt is the problem. Should you need further help please just ask Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
