    its not a belt, its probably your pulley. My pulley just broke, and it did the same thing. I had to buy a new crankshaft timing gear to fix it. i also replaced the timing belt while I was at it.

    I had this happen to me just a month ago...it is the harmonic balancer, which runs all belts and pulleys...it needed to be completely replaced, the bolt sheared of holding it, and this is a problem that all KIA Sorrento;s have had. Yet KIA refused to recall, this can cause serious injury or accident while driving and it happens...lose all control of wheel...
