It is depended on the condition of your timing belt
The 1999 Kia Sportage 2-wheel drive has a timing belt. Mine just shredded driving down the highway. So replace your belts at 60,000 to 90,000 miles like the book says. I have 91,000.
The 1999 Cadillac Seville does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain.
Replacing the timing belt in my 1998 Kia cost me 275 bucks labor, plus I got the timing belt from Kia, and it cost 82.50 Doug, email@example.com
1450 parts and labort for the waterpump kit with timing belt and thermostat for a v6 2006 kia sportage!!!! AZ.
It does not have a belt, it has a chain.
Yes, the 1999 Kia Sportage with 2.0L DOHC is an "interference" engine, meaning the valves can hit the pistons if the timing belt broke.
Replace the timing belt at least every 100,000 miles.
i need to see the diagram fir the timing belt
No, but have you ever seen a motorcycle that used a drive belt rather than a chain. Well the belt look just like your timing belt.
