It's a bit of work for most unless you are a mechanic. I changed my 2003 kia (v-6) Is your a v6? CAUTION: be careful not to lose your timing marks on you dual overhead cams. They will spin a bit when you remove your old belt, due to the tension on the valve springs, so first, turn your crank pulley to the timing mark at top dead center. Also be careful for the timing cover. These are made of really cheap carbon fiber material that will erode upon handling....Again, unless you feel very confident in you mechanical abilities, don't try it....I will soon replace spark plugs on our piece of junk, and I'm not looking forward to that either., but I'm sure for the dealers cost of over $300, I can do it myself, even though I have to remove the whole intake assy.

It's a bit tricky for the home mechanic. Plan on an entire weekend to remove everything, including the engine mount. You'll need to strip the engine including the harmonic balancer (air tools). I suggest replacing the water pump and all belts/pulleys at the same time. You''ll need the usual torque wrenches, sockets, and most of all patience. Aligning the timing marks is the most challenging and critical, but you can hold the cams in place with washers and bolts while you thread the belt. My replacement is on 25,000 so far. I'm not really looking forward to doing it again at 120,000... :) Read the steps over and over before attempting. http://www.kiatechinfo.com/
