How many miles can you have on a Kia Sportage before you replace the timing belt?


Answer by  Jsands1982 (871)

On most vehicles replace the timing is very tough and touchy. Every part on the vehicle depends on this part alone. So replacement of the timing belt would be around 150k to 250k. Be very careful not to run it until it needs replacement, because you will cause more damage then what needs to be replace.

As a former Kia Sportage Owner, the dealership recommended this maintenance at approximately 60,000 but said that there would be no immediate problems waiting longer but no more then 80,000.

All Kia's have really tough timing belts. Replacement shouldn't be necessary before the vehicle has at least 500K miles. Of course by that time very little of the original vehicle will still exist and the timing belt issue will be moot.

A timing belt for almost every single vehicle should be replaced at around 75,000 to 90,000 miles. But it is always a good ideas to have it inspected around 50,000

You should inspect the belt when there are about 60 thousand miles on the car. It should be replaced when the car has between 96 and 120 thousand miles. The California vehicle manual suggest it be replaced at the higher amount of miles.

Well it really depends on the car you can inspect it or go by the mileage suggest in the manual. Usually it every 100,000 miles or so it need replaced.
