Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, how many miles are on this and whenn did you last have the timing belt changed?
Thanks, ***** ***** sounds like the timing belt has worn and slipped. This will result in what you describe. The recommended replacement interval for the belt is every 60,000 miles.
If this is not something you plan to fix yourself I suggest having it towed to the repair shop as driving it anymore may cause further damage.
It's a 50/50 chance on just replacing the belt fixing it or the valves being damaged.
I hate to be the bearer of this news but I have seen it many, many times over the years.
