Question about 2007 Kia Optima
When I first start my car I have a pulley that squeaks. after several minutes of running the pulley finally stops. why is this? and is it a problem about to happen?
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.

its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.

SOURCE: I need to know where
The mark is inside on the block at about the 10:30 -11:00 o'clock position. It looks like a dash mark. It is between the crankshaft and the balance shaft side. Hope this helps.
