You shouldn't overlook any part replacement in your Kia--however, not changing the timing belt when necessary can be more destructive than many other parts, leading to catastrophic engine destruction. When the time comes for you to replace the timing belt, the parts store at Hanson Kia is filled with OEM timing belts and other Kia replacement parts. This is a big task that requires disassembling the engine, and is generally best performed by people who have experience with taking an engine apart--and putting it back together again.

What Does the Timing Belt Do?

Many modern vehicles like your Kia are powered by something called an interference engine. This type of engine design means that you'll have a better compression ratio than other engine types--essentially, more power and efficiency in a smaller space. Interference engines are designed so that the valves and the pistons occupy the same space in the engine cylinders at different times. That last part is important, and it requires precise timing. If they happen to occupy the same space at the same time, the pistons will strike the valves and cause colossal damage.

This precise timing is controlled by a timing belt (or, in some models, a timing chain). The belt makes sure that the valves are always closed when the pistons are high in the cylinder. If it breaks, the engine may very well be destroyed.

How Often Does the Timing Belt Need To Be Replaced?

The manual that came with your Kia will have a checklist of services that need to be performed, and a schedule of when they should happen. Pay attention to this schedule! It will let you know when to have your timing belt replaced so that your engine won't have major trouble.
