I was driving at work about a week ago, and parked it in the parking lot and went inside to close the store down. After about a 3-4 hour wait it wouldn't start back up, or turn over. Eventually I got it towed to a shop and replaced the timing belt, serpentine belt, water pump etc but when they were finished they said that it was running rough and had white smoke coming out the back of the exhaust. I'm not sure if this would be a valve issue, gaskets, or anything else and was looking at whether it would be worth fixing it or buying a used car to get me through until I could save up enough to get these repairs done. I drove it 5 minutes or so back to work to leave it there, the engine really vibrates and rattles as you accelerate and especially when you have to stop at a stop sign or a red light.
Do you
have the same problem?

The 2.7L is an none interference engine so it's not going to have bend valves. White smoke is a sign of burning engine coolant which usually means a leaking cylinder head gasket. That is quite the coincidence it would happen at the same time, but regardless, both repairs involve removing the cylinder heads and both things will be taken care of with the valve repair.

Hello,

The kia sportage 2.7L v6 4x4 is a non- interference engine

Here are a couple of guides to help you get the timing belt replaced and the engine tested once you are through :

and

Please let us know what happens, we are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

2002 Kia Sportage had timing belt break & do some valve & piston damage. Basically, need to replace 1/2 of engine. My mechanic said as 1 option he could put in used engine & replace clutch while at it for $2,500. Car has 128,000 miles -- just paid off. Don't want another car pymt? Suggestions? What I'm pondering is making this repair or put $2,500 towards used car?

Hi there,

Always a hard question this. I alway answer it the same way, if it was my car, and I happy with it? Has it been reliable before this problem? Is it becoming to heavy on fuel? Will it suit my need for the next few years? Ask your self these questions and I feel that you will come to a conclusion fast enough.

I changed the timing belt, oil and filter, spark plugs and wires, coolant, and fuel and fuel filter. It runs fine except when it reaches normal driving temperature. When it reaches that it runs rough while it is idle. Used a code reader and it says misfire in #1, #2, #3, and #4 cylinder. I don't know if you can or how to check the coil packs. Could they both be bad and if so possibly be the reason? Also, I don't know what it is called (see picture) but the tube that comes out of the left side of valve cover appears to have been broken and glued back together. It is right in the angle part or appears to be. Was wondering what it is called and if that could be the reason for rough idle and engine light on? If not what else could it be? How to fix it?

It may be the pcv valve which would cause a lrge vacuum leak and misfire code. Most auto parts stores shouldhave it it will just pull outandan easy replacement.

I changed the pcv valve and put everything back together. Cranked it up and ran fine until it reached normal temperature range. It started idle rough and check engine light came on. Code read: random/multiple cylinder misfire detected, Cylinder 4 misfire detected, Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Pending: Cylinder 1 misfire detected, and Cylinder 3 misfire detected. I don't know what else it could be unless it is the coil packs or pack. Can you test them? If so how? Or is it something else? I'm at my wits end!

Check the fuel pressure as well and check egr and pipe for blockage as these can cause it as well.

How many bolts are there in the fan assembly on the enigine block. I am trying to change the timing belt but cannot remove the fan. I have taken out three bolts, two on the left side closet to the battery and one connected to the altenator, are there anymore bolts and if not why won't the bracket come off?

2.Remove accessory drive belts. Remove cooling fan and pulley. Remove lower engine splash guard. Remove crankshaft pulley from crankshaft. It is NOT necessary to remove center bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers. See Fig. 1 .
3.Rotate crankshaft to align camshaft and crankshaft timing marks. See Fig. 2 and Fig. 3 . Camshaft "I" and "E" marks should align with marks on rear cover.
4.Loosen tensioner pulley bolt. Pivot tensioner pulley outward to remove tension from timing belt, then retighten tensioner lock bolt. See Fig. 4 . Mark timing belt rotation direction if old belt is to be reinstalled. Remove timing belt.

Installation
1.Ensure crankshaft and camshaft pulleys are still aligned. See Fig. 3 . Install timing belt so that there is no looseness at tension side, and at camshaft pulleys. If reusing old belt, ensure belt is installed in original direction of rotation. Loosen tensioner pulley bolt.
2.Turn crankshaft 2 revolutions in normal direction of rotation. Check that timing marks are correctly aligned. If timing marks are not correctly aligned, remove belt and realign. After belt, repeat rotation prodecure.
3.Turn crankshaft to align "S" mark of exhaust camshaft pulley with rear cover seal plate mating mark. Tighten tensioner pulley bolt.
4.Check that belt deflection is .30-.33" (7.5-8.5 mm) with 22 lbs. (10 kg) of downward pressure on belt, midway between two camshaft pulleys. 5.Install timing belt guide plate with flat side toward belt. Install timing belt covers. 6.To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Adjust drive belts to proper tension.

Ok timing belts are replaced by mileage intervals. You are at that interval. The timing belt is what replaced the old timing chain and gears in older cars. So if the belt breaks the piston's hit the valves and you either buy a new head or rebuild yours if it can be rebuilt. So the dealer saying it may need it is right by the miles that are on your car. You replace this belt about every 80000 or so because you do not want it to break as this will do lots of damage. Here is a pic of the belt that they are refuring to.

I just went for an Estimate on replacing the Timing Belt in my 1999 Kia Sportage. I was told that in order to replace the Timing Belt the Water Pump would have to be removed and replaced as well. I was given a labor estimate of 539.00 just to remove and install a new water pump. In comparison the labor to remove and replace the Timing Belt was 115.00 in addition to the cost of Parts.

My question is does the Water Pump have to be taken off in order to get to the Timing Belt to replace it? Or are they just trying to take advantage of a seemingly helpless Female?
