8. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
9. Remove the 4 bolts and water pump pulley.
10. Remove the 4 bolts(B) and timing belt upper cover(A).
11. Turn the crankshaft pulley, and align its groove with timing mark "T" of the timing belt cover. Check that the timing mark of camshaft sprocket is aligned with the timing mark of cylinder head cover. (No.1 cylinder compression TDC position)
12. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt(B) and crankshaft pulley(A).
13. Remove the crankshaft flange(A).
14. Remove the 5 bolts(B) and timing belt lower cover(A)
15. Remove the timing belt tensioner(A) and timing belt(B).

NOTE:
If the timing belt is going to be reused, make an arrow indicating the turning direction to make sure that the belt is reinstalled in the same direction as before.

16. Remove the bolt(B) and timing belt idler(A).
17. Remove the crankshaft sprocket(A).
18. Remove the cylinder head cover.
(1)Disconnect the spark plug cables and do not pull on the cable by force.

NOTE:
Pulling on or bending the cables may damage the conductor inside.
(2)Remove the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) hose(A) and the breather hose(B) from the cylinder head cover.
(3)Remove the accelerator cable(A) from the cylinder head cover.
(4)Loosen the cylinder head cover bolts(B) and then remove the cover(A) and gasket.

19. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
(1)Hold the portion(A) of the camshaft with a hexagonal wrench, and remove the bolt(C) with a wrench(B) and remove the camshaft sprocket.
CAUTION:
Be careful not to damage the cylinder head and valve lifter with the wrench.

INSTALLATION

1. Install the camshaft sprocket and tighten the bolt to the specified torque.
(1)Temporarily install the camshaft sprocket bolt(C).
(2)Hold the portion(A) of the camshaft with a hexagonal wrench, and tighten the bolt(C) with a wrench(B).

Tightening torque :
98.1 - 117.7N.M (10 - 12kgf.M, 72.3 - 86.8lbf. Ft)
2. Install the cylinder head cover.
(1)Install the cylinder head cover(A) and bolts(B).

Tightening torque :
7.8 - 9.8N.M (0.8 - 1.0kgf.M, 5.8 - 7.2lbf. Ft)
(2)Install the PCV(Positive Crankcase Ventilation) hose(A) and breather hose(B) to the cylinder head cover.
(3)Install the accelerator cable(A) to the cylinder head cover.
(4)Install the spark plug cables.
3. Install the crankshaft sprocket(A).
4. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket(A) and crankshaft sprocket(B) with the No. 1 piston placed at top dead center and its compression stroke.

8. Temporarily install tensioner pulley using center bolt to add tension force to the belt.
9. Adjust the timing belt tension.
(1)Rotate the crankshaft clockwise(view from front) through angle equivalent to two teeth(18 ) of camshaft sprocket(A).
(2)Using a hex-wrench, apply tension to the timing belt in the clockwise direction so that there is no slack in the belt on the tension side.

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?

TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT - 2.0L - DOHC -2000 Kia Sportage

Removal
1.Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove 2 air ducts mounting bolts from radiator. Loosen fresh air duct clamp at intake housing. Remove hose at resonance chamber. Remove fresh air duct. Remove cooling fan shroud 5 bolts. Remove cooling fan clutch-to-pulley 4 nuts.
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.

Lots of new parts.
Lady didn't know if the timing belt had been replaced so I tore it apart.
Looks like it was replaced. So I put it back together. After starting the engine
It was making a noise it was not making prior to my work. Was nothing that was critical so I've been driving around a couple months. So low and behold today I was checking under the hood and I noticed my timing belt housing had a groove cut in it in the entire top half of the housing and the bottom half was cracked in half. Oh no, I'm not believing this. So I bought a whole new housing. Now my plan is to take it apart again and redo the belt the tentioner and the other pulley as well. While I'm this far I'm replacing the front main seal. My question is how to get to it. Crank pulley comes off and then what? Where's the seal?
Water pump off as well. This is where I need help. A diagram would be great. Also the timing diagram would be very helpful. Timing belt has not been removed yet. I want to make sure I get the timing straight first before I remove the belt I know the crank sprocket and the cam sprockets have
Identifying marks as well as the backing plate But something to look at would be much safer in my opinion. So thanks in advance. I've gotten some really good tips and information from this site. And trust it more than any forum. Thanks, JC

Thank you so much.
It looks like the timing belt was touching the housing. But I don't see how that's possible. The belt itself had no evidence of rubbing the housing. Is it okay to start the engine up without the timing cover in place? So I can see how that belt is tracking on the sprockets? To see if it's riding on the outside edges of the sprockets? That's what it looks like to me. But the belt was not riding to the outside when I pulled the cover off. I'm going to send you a photo of the housing tomorrow. JC
