Sportage TimingThe one on intake side at 12 oclock pass. side.The E on exhaust side at 12 oclock drivers side

P!S! when checking the timing on a Kia Sportage you should know that the sheer pin on the crankshaft pulley tends to go allowing the pulley to move so it 'looks' like its in time meaning the marks all line up and you can't tell without pulling off the lower(crankshaft) pulley, it is always a good idea to locate #1 spark plug take it out and drop a longgg screwdriver as you manually turn the timing belt whilst looking for the marks as that cylinder should be up as far as it can go with all the marks lined up for it to be in time if it starts going back down or doesn't quite get as far up as it should go with the marks lined up.. then its not in time and should definatley take off the crankshaft pulley to take a look at that sheer pin and the damamge it did...

How do you set timing on a 1997kia sportage manual?

setting the timing is automatic on Kia sportages, when you replace the timing belt ,this is were the manual timing is set by lining up all of your timing marks.It is not like the old days where you move the distributor 2 or 3 degress one way or another to aline the timing. I have a computer that i plug in to monitor the timing signals coming from the camshaft sensors and crankshaft sensor to see if timing is right. The old timing light can be used to see if your close but adjustment for the average joe is out of the question.
