When your Kia Optima left the factory, it was destined for a person with discerning taste who values economical pricing in their automobile. Kia vehicle enthusiasts have come to expect a certain level of best-in-class value when driving their Optima around town. Obviously, you bought your Optima because you understood you would be getting a great manufacturer's warranty and a brand you can trust both rolled up into one car, truck, or SUV. Car aficionados appreciate the long-lasting service built into each Kia, and know that only top quality repair Optima parts will suffice when repairs are needed.
Maintaining the life of the engine and all parts of your Kia Optima means you need precise engine timing. The timing belt tensioner keeps the timing belt firmly attached to the crank and cam pulleys so it doesn't hop off or skip any time. Your Kia Optima timing belt tensioner looks like any other tensioner pulley, it will under the timing cover and bolted to the block, and it includes some mechanism (sprung or hydraulic) that applies pressure in direct opposition to the belt in order to keep it tight.
