Question about Kia Rio
This is a questioin with a few diffferent answers, but I will try to include as much info as possible.....you did not state which make.model or engine type you have...so the first and main thing to work out is ---- is this engine an interference type ??? this is to work out if the timing belt broke, would the valves hit pistons......if yes, then you might be loking at an enigne overhaul and repair $$$$$$$$......but if not, you might get anway with just replacing the timing belt......
If just replacing timing belt...again you ned to make sure you have capable and comprehensive instructions to set the belt up properly...the reason it is called a timing belt, is that it goverbs the timing of the pistons (crankshaft) according to the valve opening (camshaft) and spark timing.....get this wrong and the engine will not start/run or be efficient as it once was.......
First things first......work out what engine you have, and if it is just a timing belt replacement...and then go from there
