ANOTHER QUESTION RE: OUR CAR-WHAT POSITION DOES SHOULD THE CRANKSHAFT BE IN BEFORE MOVINGTIMING BELT OR DOES IT MATTER BECAUSE IT TRANSISTOR IGNITION. DOES NO.1 PISTÓN CYLINDER BE NEEDED TO BE TOP DEAD CENTER? THANKS.
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.
I live in Minnesota, the crankshaft position sensor needs to be pointing down with wiring comming pointing toward the top. As long as the timing marks are lined up everything will be fine, then rotate crank pulley 2 revolutions to make sure it rotatse good. Let me know if you run into questions, have a great night.

With the type of diagram your looking for I think someone will need to have vehicle in front of them so they can take some pictures for you. I'll open question back up to see if someone else has these diagrams. Do not reply or question will be locked to me only, someone else will automatically reply when they can help. Thanks.
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 2 years ago.

Hell Regina, I would be glad to assist you. You can view the timing belt installation procedure with illustrations by clicking here

 


The most important step before you remove the belt is to make sure the crank and cams are aligned to their timing marks. You may have to turn the crankshaft twice for all marks to align, then you can follow the procedure. If you need help or clarification on any step let me know.

 

Also below is a better illustration of the cam timing marks.

HOW OFTEN DO THE 3 COILS FOR THE PLUGS NEED TO BE REPLACE? THE CAR HAS 120,000 MILES. THANKS.
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 2 years ago.
The coils have no specific replacement interval. I have seen them last for over 150,000 miles easily. You can check them with a voltmeter to see if they are within specifications. I will post that procedure here.

HI THIS IS REGINA AGAIN.THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP.I HAVE TWO MORE REMAINING QUESTIONS LEFT.WHAT IS THE BEST RADIATOR FLUID REPLACEMENT TO KEEP HEAT DOWN/FRICTION DOWN AND HAS LUBRICATING QUALITIES TO LUBRICATE WATER PUMP-TO HELP EXTEND THE LIFE OF THE WATER PUMP?
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 2 years ago.
KIA recommends " Ethylene Glycol for Aluminum engine coolant" What I personally use and would recommend is Prestone All Car reason being it is ethylene glycol based, has corrosion inhibitors and if you were ever in a jam and had to top it off on the road any coolant would mix with it.
As far as a water pump lubricant I would recommend THIS
Another I would like to mention is that on the sorento KIA actually recommends timing belt replacement in "severe service" at 40,000 miles. If you do a lot of stop and go in town driving a recommend that interval. The other part being I would recommend changing the water pump every other timing belt change. It's really a good practice since they are timing belt driven and a pump failure could break the belt which would lead to bent valves, etc.

GOOD MORNING KWIGGINS! BEFORE I ANSWER THE FEEDBACK QUESTIONS I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION PLEASE.HOW LONG DO MOST KIA SENSORS ON THE CAMSHAFT SENSORS AND THE CRANKSHAFT TIMING GEAR SENSORS LIFE SPAN LAST EITHER IN MILEAGE OR YEARS? ,
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 2 years ago.

These are like the coils, in that there is no definitive lifespan. With that said my personal observation and experience has been that they usually last anywhere from 100-150,000 miles.


With that said KIA comes with high quality sensors and when you decide to replace those I would suggest either ones from a KIA dealer or from OEM suppliers such as Auto 7 and Standard motor products. They are built to industry standards and will be as high of quality as KIA factory parts. I would highly avoid using any sensors made by the company Airtex, they have a high failure rate and are inferior parts from my experience.


Since you seem to be an avid DIY'er I also wanted to share this link with you as a source of high quality and discounted parts.
