I noticed that too...I downloaded the front brakes, rear brakes, timing belt, blower motor and front strut replacement pages the other day. Even though I have an '06...I'll need those someday.

I also have looked for a printed manual without success. Neither Haynes nor Chilton has issued one for this series of vehicles.

As for help with fixing your timing belt, this forum is full of tips and instructions. Just search for 'timing belt' and you should find all the help you need.

Good luck with your repair. Mine was fairly easy.

I wish someone had a labor manual online too. I am having repairs done to mine and don't know what I should expect for labor hours.

Do you still have the brake and strut replacement information?

Why would these companies not publish a manual on this vehicle? Was it a low production vehicle or something? Do they do that on others?

I own my second Sportage so I must really like em. I consider this one to be my second husband. Main issue with mine was the Timing Key(woodruff)

Is whoever is running this message board gathering data to compile a manual?

Repair Manual Kia Optima

I was looking for a Haynes or Chilton for my 01 Kia Optima but it does not exist. However, the Optima is supposedly the same car as a Hyundai Sonata and there is a Haynes for that. Has anyone ever bought that? Is it really the same car?

Mitchell has a basic Sportage manual that is online. You must buy a subscription for it, but you can download the different sections and save them as a WORD document and they will open after your subscription expires. I think you could also save it as a PDF. Another source for manuals is your local library

Here is the link to Mitchell:
