Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
I am replacing the timing belt on a 2.4l KIA Optima. I installed the new belt, thought I had all the sprockets on their marks, so I tried starting it and it ran ruff with a slight misfire. I turned it off and checked the marks again and I noticed the crank, oil and balance sprockets were still in line with one another, but the cams were off by 180 degrees.
I removed the belt again to try and adjust the cams on to their marks again but the left sprocket won't move and the right on will only move a 1/4 rev.
Now what do I do? Did I ruin the valves by starting it for a couple seconds? Help!
