Kia Sedona 2.9 Crdi Auto sudden engine stop at 60 mph.

Customer Question
Engine cranks with 'normal' noises...
Kia Sedona 2.9 Crdi Auto sudden engine stop at 60 mph. Engine cranks with 'normal' noises but will not fire or start. I suspect the timing belt although this is less than 20,000 miles old. Anyone know a simple, inexpensive, way to check the timing belt?

see remove the valve cover and see if the cam is turning. This would be the easiest way also see if it's
loose.
Hoped this helped.
