2011 kia optima ex timing belt or chain get different answers when looking on line

Asked by Aug 04, 2013 at 06:34 AM about the 2011 Kia Optima EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

257,905

Both the 2.4 or the 2.0T in the Optima have a timing chain. No belt. I guess the confusion is that they are interference engines. But the chains should last the life of the engine/car.
