does a 2010 kiasoul hav timing belt or chain
The Kia Soul does have a timing belt. It must be changed at 60000 miles. If it does break it will cause severe damage to the engine! The cost to replace the belt is affordable and a bargiain if you consider the altereative.
In the US there are two motor options for the 2010 Soul. 1.6L motor is timing chain driven. 2.0L motor is belt driven. Like Ron said I would recommend replacing the timing belt on the 2.0L motor at 60,000 miles.
yes you have a timing belt if you have the 2.0 liter engine, No you dont have to change it until the 100,000 mile mark. the 60,000 mile is an inspection only.
Michael, thanks for that info. I called my local Kia dealer, and the master technician said 60,000 miles. So did a mechanic on the following forum: http://repairpal.com/what-is-the-normal- mileage-for-replacing-the-timing-belt-and-what-other-parts- need-to-be-rep-844 Where are you getting your info that the timing belt doesn't need to be replaced until 100,000 miles? Thanks, Andy
I've never had to change my timing belt until now and my Kia Soul has 306,00 miles YAY!!!
