Having problems with your 2002 Kia Sportage ?
How can you tell if its the engine or timing chain that is broke on a 2002 kia sportage
If you can't remove a dust cover to view the Timing Belt you can remove the valve cover and watch the valves while your cranking. If the lifters and valves aren't functioning then the Timing belt is broken. If they do work your problem is elsewhere.
If the timing belt is broken the water pump won't work, be careful about turning the engine on without the timing belt.
