Timing Belt Issue on 2005 Kia Sorento

Roll pin between crank shaft and lower crank pulley sheered, had to take off timing belt to replace. Reset the timing belt as best as possible to specifications listed. Put vehicle back together and engine light came on. What could cause this problem? No weird noises when it starts although ihave read that if the timing belt is a notch off it could causes the light to come on. Is there a way to test it to see if its timed correctly?

I would check the codes, it may be related to incorrect camshaft/crankshaft timing, but it could be from something else like a disconnected sensor or hose. If the code is for a camshaft or crankshaft sensor, then the timing may be off, and you will need to recheck that the crankshaft and the camshaft pulleys are installed correctly and timed properly.

The issue is when the pin broke it put the engine out of time and set a code on the crankshaft position sensor for being out of sinc. It usually breaks that sensor when the belt breaks or a tooth breaks off it. I hope first of all that you put on a new timing belt. Second if the car is running most likely the sensor is okay and you are very lucky. Just go to the local Advance Auto store, have them read the code for free and clear it for you. Good luck
