The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

I have a 06 kia rio and its missing with almost a 100k miles would that be injectors or is their spark plugs that i could change i have had the timing belt and clutch and pressure plate changed


Change the plugs. It could be both to be honest but the spark plugs usually go first before a fuel injector. Check for vaccum leaks also. They can cause a decent miss. If you need anthing else, let me know. I am here to offer my asistance to you. Thank you very much for choosing FixYa.
