What would make a kia sportage act like timing belt had broke?
Maybe the timing belt broke.
what year ? if it is say 2000 sportage with double overhead cam, possible real damage done, this IS an interference engine. In english, if timing belt breaks while engine is running severe damage can be done to valves, cams, pistons,etc. A $50.00 timing belt could easily cost you now $2500.00 to repair engine. If it just broke sitting still and NOT running, $ 458.00 to fix ,include water pump , it is driven by…
I have never heard of a cam belt. I have a 2000 Kia Sportage and the timing belt went out while I was driving. The engine stopped running,and I tried to start it back and it would not start. The engine would turn over and over but would not start. Found out after a four hundred dollar fuel pump it was a broke timing belt. these engines are contact / so when a timing belt…
you have to basically gut the front of the engine past the timing belt, it is alot of work ,but it can be done, remember once you remove timing belt you have to time cams, crankshaft and tensioner. I already have answered this whole procedure in previous answers.com . try 2000 kia sportage timing belt.
If you think your Timing Belt broke DO NOT try to crank your car, if you continue to crank you car with a severed timing belt you will cause more damage. The only way you can tell for sure if the timing belt broke is to remove the upper timing cover and inspect the belt. If you see a naked cam sprocket your timing belt has broken and you will most likely need a top…
i have exactly the same problem by the sounds except i classed it as 2nd revs, and mine was a kia sportage 2001, the a/c belt broke and it began. i have replaced the belt but the revs (diesel engine sound) is still there. if you have found an answer please look for kia sportage 2001 4 door and let me know whats wrong:( with our cars
when should I change the timing belt on a 2006 kia sportage ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) On a 2006 Kia Sportage ( both the 2.0 liter four cylinder and the 2.7 liter V6 ) ( inspect at 60,000 miles / replace at 80,000 miles , they also show that both engines are interference engines )
If the timing belt went as in broke/stopped working, I don't think your engine would start. The timing belt controls the camshafts which actuate the intake and exhaust valves. Neons have an interferance engine if the timing belt broke you possibly have bent valves and the engine will spin over very fast and you will have no compression. That's probably not what you want to hear though. Cross your fingers.
A 2000 Mazda Protege with 1.8 DOHC engine appears to be a "free-running" engine, meaning there is no valve/piston interference in case the timing belt broke. There is enough clearance between the valve and piston, even if the cam stops (i.e. the timing belt breaks) with the valve fully open. Therefore, the car will not be damaged if the timing belt broke.
When you replace the timing belt on a 2000 Kia Sportage with a 2.0 what else do you need to change with it?
I put quite a bit of mileage on my 2001 Kia Sportage and had to replace the timing belt at 100,000 miles. I have owned the car for 5 years. I was driving on the freeway doing 70 miles an hours when all the power shut down and the car would not start back up although it would crank. Hope that helps you.
