It looks like the maintenance schedule is calling for a timing belt replacement for my Sportage. Do I need to do anything else other than just the belt and adjusters? Any tips on replacing it that I should know about? Or is it pretty straight forward.

replace the water pump also, replace the tensioner spring too, make sure you get the right pump for your engine sohc and dohc are not the same. www.kiatechinfo.com is a good place for repair info. just just sign up it's free.

replace the alt, p/s and a/c belts <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> and replace rad fld you have to drain it anyway, might as well replace the the termastat as well just make sure you have it all with you before you start you don't want any surprises on trying to find parts, remember the right pump if you get it from your local shop open it up and count the cogs. make sure you have all the agskets you need too. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> go for it

thanks bombardj1, not a job I'm looking forward to, but someone has to do it. It's going to have to wait a few days though, we're supposed to get up to 12 inches of snow overnight so I'll have to go play in that first. Doesn't take much room at all to do donuts in the snow. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Search on e-bay with "timing belt sportage" and you'll have full kits available under 100$. Several have used them with total satisfaction and I.m looking for one in preparation of a summer job....dealer here would like to grab >450$ for the same, just for the parts.... Just make sure the kit is for DOHC with the 25 cog pully for the water pump and they cover 1996-2002 even if some are listed only like 1996-2000....

You did not say what your milage is, the timing belt will last beyond 60k miles and the waterpump should go to a min of 120K miles.

Mileage just turned 120,000. I'll just have to assume the timing belt was replaced at 60,000. So it looks like the water pump and timing belt are due for a change.
