Kia Sorento Timing Belt Or Timing Chain (2003 - 2021)

From the model year 2003 to 2021 the Kia Sorento has various engines with either a timing belt or a timing chain. However, all of its engines are interference.

Scroll down to see specific data for your model year below.

The timing belt (or chain) maintains the proper synchronization between the various engine components in a combustion engine.

If the belt or chain stretches or breaks, it can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

Timing belts have a recommended replacement interval, while timing chains are generally rated for the engines lifetime, although they need to be inspected occasionally.
