Timing belt timing,for 2001 kia sportage 2.0 engine

Timing belt marking

The timing marks are just above the cams at the "twelve o'clock position"

If necessary, align the timing marks.
NOTE When aligning the cam pulleys with the seal plate marks, align the left cam pulley “I” mark and the right cam pulley on the “E” mark.

WARNING When aligning the timing marks, do not turn the timing gear counterclockwise. Damage to the engine will occur.

Applies only to B6xx4T engines:
Remove the plastic pipes between the turbocharger (TC) and charge air cooler (CAC) and between the air cleaner (ACL) and turbocharger (TC). Put them to one side. Remove the clamp from the intake manifold for the turbocharger (TC) for cylinders 1, 2 and 3. Turn the upper section of the pipe towards the firewall.

Relieve the load from the belt tensioner.
Remove the auxiliaries belt. See: Drive Belt\Service and Repair
Remove the upper timing belt cover.

Disconnect the hose at the tank.
Lift up the expansion tank and place it on top of engine.

Raise the car. Remove
the right front wheel
the plastic nuts on the cover in the fender liner. Install the upper timing belt cover.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys correspond.
Turn the crankshaft a further 1/4 turn clockwise. Then turn back counter-clockwise until the markings correspond.
Remove the upper timing belt cover.

Remove the 4 vibration damper screws. Counterhold the crankshaft central nut.

Timing belt replacement info please

There should be a mark on both the cam gears, and a mark on the crankshaft gear. There are some important steps when you replace the belt on this car. If you make a mistake, you will cause engine damage so make sure you get the information before you do the job. I recommend replacing the tensioner when you replace the belt too. Look for tutorials on some of the Volvo forums.
