Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, I'll post an illustration below of how the spring should go. If it has resistance when turning the adjuster opposite of the belt it's on properly but may be worn out. KIA recommends replacing the spring when doing the belt, I suggest replacing the spring and tensioner assembly. Let me know if I can help further.
That's correct. I'll post pictures below for you of the cams and crank. After you get the belt installed and tight rotate the engine twice by hand to make sure everything lines back up before starting.
You're welcome, if you have any more questions along the way just reply back.
