SOURCE: My 2003 kia optima lx

As soon as the car hits the mark of 60Kmiles, the owner has to make the decision. To keep it or get rid of it. If you decide to keep it, than prepare for more expensive tune Ups, or Preventive and Scheduled Maintenance Services. The squeaking noise means it is the time to replace the serpentine belt. It cost $30 and can be done by owner in 5 minutes, but from now you have to save some money, because between 60K and 90K the timing belt has to be replaced too with a new one. It is not the belt only, there is a kit with belt tensioners that cost $290 parts only.
For more information please read my tip:
When should i change the timing belt on my car?
After the timing belt most of the car dealers recomment to flush and change all fluids with the new one. Transmission oil and filter, coolant, brake fluid and more ....

Pulley squeaks in 2007 Kia Optima

If it's a stand-alone pulley, it would have bearings which may be worn and about to fail. If it's a pulley on a component, like a power steering pump pulley, the component may need troubleshooting.

My friend just install a serpantine tensioner pully & a belt on my 2000 2.4 grand am... but since then there's an annoying squeaky noise whenever I'm driving... he told me it will stop after a while b

double check the belt length if its too short even a little it can cause a squeak.also make sure there is no oil on any of the pulleys as well make sure the tensioner was installled properly and the pulley is the correct one.this does happen if someone doesn`t take the time to make sure of this and assumes they have been given the correct parts.

Drive Belts Squeaking

First off, how many miles do you have on this engine?Since you changed the belt and still have the noise,you have one of your pulleys making this noise.Usually it's the ideler tensioner pully.Take the belts off.Turn the pulleys by hand including the alternator pulley.if you hear the slightest faint noise there's your problem.repalce the part or the pulley. A lot of times the alternator pulley does this,the front bearing or the rear bearing as well will make these nasty squeals.Find an auto electric shop that rebuilds alternators and have them replace the bearing for you,while your at it service your unit,it will save you in the long run.

01 kia optima stalled and wont start...starter just clicks

It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.
