Engine Performance problem
2004 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
I just installed a new timing belt on anOptima 2.4l and had all my timing marks lined up. I was wondering if there is a 2-1 or 3-1 ratio from with the crank sprockets? If I turn the crank 360 degrees and check my marks they are off by 180 deg.
Doing that also offsets the oil pump sprocket. Why can't I get this thing right? I had originally put marks on the sprockets but have since adjusted them. I had the belt on and started the car but it ran real ruff so I took it back off reset the sprockets again, turned the crank, clockwise once, then checked the marks and they weren't aligned. HELP!
