I just replaced the alternator in my 2012 Kia Sorento Saturday and after work on Sunday it ran too low on oil, and stalled out. Wouldn't stay running. I got it back to the house by keeping my foot on the gas the entire time(about 3 blocks). It started throwing a bunch of codes because of it.

I took off the manifold? Cover and rotated the crankshaft to align the marks for the timing belt but it looks a little bit off.

Did you reset the timing gear back to its default install position before checking alignment marks? If not, that is why the marks do not lineup. Also if you ran it with the oil light on, the engine is toast at that point.

You do not state how many miles are on the Sorento. If high mileage, it could be worn timing chain and worn chain guides that have the timing marks moved as the tensioner for the timing chain will only take up so much play. It may be out of the limits of the system to correct for all the wear.
