I never heard of a car not having a fuel filter but the kia parts guy said that there is no filter when i was in there buying maintenance parts about 6 months ago.. I thought that was strange and most likely wrong but just left it as is. Im already into it with the car and i wanted to change the wires anyway so its not a problem. I broke everything down even the timing cover is off. I didn't remove the belt at all and im aware of the special procedure or removal and replacement. However, this belt looks new or at least to me it does. Would you see wear or cracks on a 90k belt or might it just stretch out a bit. Manually, i am able to spin the water-pump with my hand with the belt on but it looks nice and tight/snug over the sprockets. I bought the car at 80k from a dealer but that's the same dealer i bought from 6 months ago and now they are out of business. I would have called and checked to see if it was done already..
I never loosened the crankshaft bolt before hand and now unsure of how to get this off.. sux... correction: crankshaft pully tool will come in handy lol
parts i will change,
spark plug wires
timing belt, tensioner
upper lower intake gasket, tb gasket
some vacuum lines on top of intake
apparently now a fuel filter
