    Belt or Chain

    Does the 2.0 Soul engine have a Timing Belt or Chain. Just curious for future milage service?

    for the 2012 Nu MPI engine a timing chain, the 2011 and 2010 Beta II Gamma engine had a belt. The 1.6L engine has always had a chain

    I have a 2012 2.0 auto not sure if this is the Nu MPI you refer to. How do I tell if I have this engine?

    If you have a 2012 2.0, it has a Chain. You can check the schematic on KiaTechInfo for yourself to confirm, but conwelpic is correct.

    I tried loging into kiatechinfo. Not sure what to type in under organization and also the privacy statement comes up blank. I'm using a Mac. Not able to sign up.

    use IE for least problems on this site, but Firefox seems to work up to a point, all you need is you email address and password, been using it for over four years no problem and a great site for all Kia info.
