Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Edited from article by Larry Carley, ImportCar, September 2001
Import interference engines include the following:
* Virtually all Acura and Honda 4-cylinder and V6 passenger car engines;
* 1994 and newer Audi 2.8L V6;
* 1998 & up Audi 1.8L;
* All BMW 2.5L and 2.7L 6-cylinder;
* All Hyundai 4-cylinder and V6 engines;
* Infiniti 3.0L V6;
* Isuzu 1.5L, 2.0L, 2.3L & 2.6L engines;
* Kia 2.0L in the Sportage,
* Mazda 2.0L in the MX-6 and 626, and the 3.0L V6 in the 929 and MPV;
* Most Mitsubishi engines, except the 1.8L, SOHC 2.0L 4-cylinder & SOHC 3.0L V6;
* All Nissan 4-cylinder and V6 engines;
* All Porsche engines;
* 1989-'94 Suzuki 1.3L DOHC;
* Toyota 1.5L Tercel engine;
* 1990-'92 Volkswagen 1.6L diesel; and
* Volvo 2.3L and 2.4L engines.
Unfortunately, the owners of many of these vehicles are totally unaware that their timing belt needs to be periodically replaced for preventive maintenance. The belt is out-of-sight and out-of-mind and, unless they read their owner's manual (which few ever do) and see the replacement recommendation in black-and-white, they usually ignore the belt until it's too late.
