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 :

https://www.2carpros.com/diagrams/kia/sportage/2005

and

I have taken my timing cover off my vehicle to check out the belt.
The belt looks pretty good to me considering the 147,000 miles it's got.
I'm a little puzzled on how this works considering the amount of tension and how you can calculate tension on the belt. I realize it has an idler and a tenitioner pulley. But I read somewhere you have to have like.30 downward tention on the belt. I don't get it?

Please try and explain. And the other issue is the water pump the housing looks new. And the belt says it's a Kia belt but surely this has been changed at some point. It would be nice if mechanics would put a date on the belt when changing. Anyway my other question of concern is where is the front crankshaft seal hidden? I'm going to replace everything being I have gone this far. Please explain the timing procedure and do I or do I not need to remove the two cam gears? Thanks, Jack

Welcome to 2CarPros.

The belt tension is measured by resistance. Basically, a scale is used to apply pressure on the belt and it must meet a prescribed tension before the belt move beyond a certain measurement.

Thanks Joe the photos are priceless.
I'm still not sure about how to gauge the tension on the belt. How are you to
Know if your at the recommended tension of 0.30 +? I will be replacing the old belt so I'm assuming there is no particular direction to install the new belt. Correct? And the engine should rotate in a counter clockwise direction right? Thanks. Jack

Welcome back:

I'm glad it's helpful. As far as belt tension, as long as the tensioner is working, you have nothing to worry about. I will say that 90% of the time, if a tensioner fails, it's all at once or happens very quickly. To actually determine tension, they have a scale. Don't laugh, but they always reminded me of the type of scale you would use to weigh fish. LOL With that, you would attach the scale to a section of belt and see how much resistance there is before the belt reaches a predetermined distance (for example, 3/4).

When you are ready to start, let me know. I'll be happy to help you through it. Also, (please don't quote me) but for some reason, I am remembering the engine to turn in a clockwise direction. I will try to find out. Otherwise, once the timing belt cover is off, just bump the starter to see what direction it turns. That isn't something that is normally listed in the manuals. Also, I do recommend replacing the tensioner and idler pulley. You don't want to have to take it apart again in a month.

Let me know when you get started.

Take care,
Joe

Hello,

Could you please ensure that the timing marks on your crankshaft and camshaft sprockets are aligned up? In the diagrams down below I have included diagrams of an exploded view of the components of your vehicles timing system as well as how to align your crankshaft and camshaft sprockets correctly. Please check it out and get back to us with what you are able to find out.

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?

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?
