I have a 2006 kia sorento lx 4x4 with a mitsubishi 3.5 NON interferance engine, the problem at first was the timing belt was shreded due to an idler pulley that had siezed up so after I got into it I replaced all the parts that come with a rebiuld kit {timing belt, water pump, idler pulley, adjustment pulley, automatic adjuster and new seals for cams and crank} the only parts I did NOT replace was the crank positioning sensor and the cam sensor. so I reassembled everything and tried to start it up for no result, engine just turns and does NOT fire...my question is 2 part...1 if crank sensor wiring is comprimised would this prevent it from starting? and 2 is there a way to test sensor without tearing everything apart again?

There may not be a problem with your crankshaft sensor unless you cracked the housing or pinched the wire somehow. I think that your problem is with your timing. To check bring number one piston to top dead center on compression stroke and check to see if your valves over that cylinder are closed. I think you will find you timing belt is off maybe a little maybe a lot. Please let me know what happens. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I STILL have my problem...I have a 2006 kia sorento lx 4x4 with a mitsubishi 3.5 that I just replaced timing belt, water pump, idler pulley, tension pulley, tensioner, I also just replaced crank posit


because you have replace engines but I imagine that you have used the crank and cam position sensors on the 3.5 but connected up to the kia ECM there is a possibility that the ecm is not reading those position sensors and not providing timing for the ECM . It will be reading as broken timing belt. I would suggest a scan of the fault codes to determine if there any sensors not reading correctly. You may have to find a speed shop that has CPU programming capabilities to reprogram the ECM/CPU to the different sensors.

I have a 2008 Kia Sorento LX 3.3. where is the adjuster bolt for the idler pulley? Trying to change serpentine belt and idler pulley.


The idler pulley deflects out of the way using a special wrench, the pulley is held against the belt only by a preset spring tension mechanism. You put the wrench on the bolt or in the square drive hole and deflect the pulley away from the belt, it must be manually held there to put the new belt on and then released to tension the new belt.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant


Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

Does v6 sorento have timing belt


Your 06 Kia, with 3.5L engine V-6, has a timing belt, Kia recommends replacing every 60,000 miles, this is an interference engine, which piston to valve damage will occur due to timing belt failure, hope this was very helpful.

How to change a timeing belt on a 2006 Kia Sorento?


Kia engines are interference engines. If the Timing belt is not done exactly right you will destroy your engine. I don't recomend anyone do a timing belt unless you allready know exactly how to do it right.
I have done many , and made a SMALL mistake on my mazda last month and ended up having to rebuild the head and replace valves , guides , and seals.
