TIMING BELT FOR

2001 Kia Sephia • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 86,400 miles

2001 Kia Sephia std engine (4cy, DOHC). Is this an "interference" engine and how often should the timing belt be replaced?

MANUFACTURER'S SUGGESTED SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE

On California models, the manufacturer recommends inspecting the belt at 60,000 miles, 90,000 miles, and replacing belt at 105,000 miles.

For all other models, the manufacturer recommends the belt be replaced every 60,000 miles.

This application is an interference engine.
