Ok on the 2003 kia sorento the mechanic has determined the the timing is off 5 teeth. The belt is tight and the top left and right gears are on the marks but the gear bottom center of the engine is
the one that is off. He says that the head will have to be machined and several
valves replaced. Does that sound right?
Being off 5 teeth might be enough to bend valves.
