Default Timing chain or belt?

I am fairly certain that the 2006 Sedona has a timing chain as opposed to a timing belt, is this correct? I've had a hard time finding any maintenance books on this and I don't believe it's in the owners manual (honestly I didn't look that hard).

Either way, if it is a chain how often does that need to be changed??? Belts I know are anywhere from 60K-100K depending on who you listen to and such.

Thanks for any info.

Definitely a chain. For replacement interval (LOT longer than any belt) you'll need to consult a Dealer. Or maybe try a Mitsubishi 380 book, basically the same engine.

Default Chain Replacement

Should never have to replace chain unless you get 200+k. There is good info including KIA training and tech info online at: Kia.com, Owners, kia tech info, which brings you to GDS, I have had a password for years so I assume owners can still get an account.

You do need to have valve clear adjusted at 100K according to the schedule but mostly if you keep the lube good and nothing else happens or was built wrong and the car is not making unusual noise.... why go through the expense? I think that this will be a big bill. To replace the tensioners on mine they had to remove the motor.

The 6G75 V6 engine used in the 380 is a SOHC cast iron block design with a timing belt. The Lambda 3.8 engine used in the late model Sedona is a DOHC all-aluminum design with a timing chain. Not even close to the same engine.

MAMTSBERG has a 2006 Sedona, not a 2005. Yes, the 2005 model used the 3.5 liter Sigma V6, which like the 2.7 liter Delta engine it was derived from, does have a timing belt. Kia switched to the Lambda 3.8 liter V6 for the Sedona in 2006 and continues to use that engine in the minivan. See items #8 and #14 in the attached schematic for the Lambda engine.
