HOW DO I INSTALL A TIMING BELT ON A 3500 V-6 LX MODEL

2006 Kia Sorento • 11,100 miles

I HAD A BAD TIMING GEAR ON A KIA SORENTO 3500 LX MODEL AND REMOVED TIMING BELT. WILL INSTALL NEW BELT BUT NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET THE TIMING AS THIS ENGINE HAS 4 CAMSHAFTS.

Put the engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and align the cams to its markings

Jeffj, did you get the timing belt changed successfully on this? Do you need other pictures or directions?

Oooh, expensive. Next time you have a repair, try using a Haynes manual, or buy a one month subscription to the same service we use here:
