Hi..

 

Hopefully I can help..

 

The 2.5crdi diesel Sorento is a "timing chain" driven engine..so no timing belts to replace on this one..Timing chains don't have any set replacement periods other than if the chain itself becomes slack/noisy in operation etc causing timing issues when it should it be replaced..as long as the engine is regularly serviced ie: oil and filter changes as oil keeps the chain lubricated should help prolong the life of the chain/guides/tensioners etc..I do hope this helps
