The timing is electronic and non adjustable. If you change the belt and don't have it set up (positioned) exactly right , you will cause major engine damage.
Pistons will hit valves and bend them. Don't do your timing belt unless you are experienced at doing that job.

My kia spectra 2009 die on the highway and wont start now


The 1.6L (and others) size engines have an "Interference Engine". If the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage results in pistons crushing valves. The timing belt MUST be replaced at regular intervals as outlined in your manual. Did you replace the timing belt in time?

How to chang timing belt 2005 Kia Rio


2005 ?? and only 70k ,i dont think it needs changing yet till about 120k depending on your local ambient climate ,if in a hot dry area then 7 yrs old yes change but if in a more temperate climate then it will be good for at least till its 10 yrs old ,modern belts are far superior to older ones from the 90s ,Then entrust it to a mechanic because one slip up can ruin the engine ,i would not recomend this job to a weekend mechanic who needs to ask on here how to do it ,yes i can tell you and its not difficult but the consequences of making a mistake ??

Where is the Timing Belt on a 2003 Kia Rio exactly???


If you are planning on replacing the timing belt and are not even sure where to find on the engine then please DONT attempt to replace it on your own. Replacing the timing belt requires knowledge of timing marks and tensioner adjustments. It does not simply come off and back on, it has to be aligned up properly with marks on the camshaft and crankshafts. Please leaave this to someone who knows! PS: the timing belt is located behind the plastic covers on the left hand side of the engine (looking from the front)

2005 RIO MOTOR JUST QUIT GOING DOWN THE ROAD. SOUNDS REALLY QUIET TRYING TO START IT


Sounds like your timing belt has broken. The engine is quiet when trying to start because it has lost compression.
