Very involved and labor intensive as the timing belt must be removed to acess. It is better to let a shop do this as you may make a mistake that could cost you thousands. It is a 800-900 job.

I would but I live on Maui & they want over $2,000 to do it. Also, I hate to say it, but even the dealership mechanics are mostly idiots on this island! Had brakes changed & they didn't tighten lugnuts! My freind had oil changed & they forgot plug! I bought parts & have someone who's GREAT with engines, but I wanted to get him a manual as he hasn't worked on a Kia before.

Ok, there are many places to get a manual. You can find a haynes manual that will have pictures and procedures. You can go to autozones web site and have it sent to you.

Good luck
