Before you spend a dime on parts for that engine, you have to find out if it is a free running engine or intermittent. Meaning the valves will hit the pistons when the belt breaks. If you drove it more than two inches after it broke, It might be shot, You will have to take the rocker cover/s off to check the cam/s and see if they are ok, Get the cover off the front, You will need a tensioner , and belt, the belt should have marks on it to mate up with the cams and crank, The marks will only line up when the cams are in position, you will have to spin the engine by hand to TDC, then turn the cams over to their marks, then put the belt on, making sure they align, Pull the pin on the new tensioner, you will be all set. The marks have to align, if the engine didn't get damaged, go ahead and do the belt, but, if it was damaged, You will need a bunch of stuff, mainly a new engine. The pistons could be shot, the cams broken, valves bent, etc. Not worth fixing, you can buy an engine for less than that. I had an engine go 11 miles before the cam broke in 3 pieces. never heard a thing. 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.

In a 2001 2liter Kia the timing belt broke.. Can I just replace it or do I need to have the valves checked first.? I heard that Kia fixed that problem of bending valves in this model.


Although a KIA manual will state that this is an interference engine, it is not. I know because I have replaced a shredded timing belt on my used 2000 Sportage to take it home and it ran great. Just recently, the timing idler pulley bolt broke while I was driving causing the belt to come off. I replaced the tensioner pulley and drilled out and re-tapped the idler bolt hole and installed the new idler and the belt (it was only 2 months old at the time) and it runs great again. THESE ARE NOT INTERFERENCE ENGINES!!!! you don't have to tear down the top end of the engine to inspect for any damage and it is very simple to install a timing belt on this motor as long as it is done properly.

Timing belt broke


Yes it is almost impossible not to bend the valves when the timing belt breaks while going down the road. Also there could have punctured the pistons or scared them too. Being its a 4 cyl then everything is aluminum and there is damage almost guarented.

I hope you find this helpful.
