The motor trade manual Autodata state, replace timing belt at 54000 miles or 6 years 1999 onwards. The local Kia dealers agree with this advice but found it rare for these belts to break even after longer intervals.You can call the dealer, check gates or dayco website. But I think those are at 120,000, but I may be thinking of a different motor? AnswerLook in your owners manual. If you live outside California they say inspect it @ 60K and replace it @ 96K. In California they say to replace @ 120K


Please do not go by the answer above ! Kia's all have a zero clearance motors. here is a very good example. your timing belt breaks your motor is garbage! your intake valves spark plugs and exhaust valves will all be embedded in your piston. Please read your manual and go by what it says, and I state it says change it at 60,000 miles. If you want to save your motor in your kia Rio, Spectra, Sedona, Sportage, Amanti, Rondo, etc CHANGE IT AT 60,000 MILES!!!

my 1999 Kia Sportage has a "NON-INTERFERANCE" engine meaning if the timing belt snapped NOTHING would happen take a minute to do a basic search before scaring these poor people...

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...

Ummm yeah ok.

Maybe you should take your own advice because you clearly have no clue what you're talking about. How is the spark plug going to end up embedded in the piston? It doesn't move. Only the valves and piston would get damaged. I advise anyone reading NOT follow the above advice.
