Question about 2004 Kia Optima

2002 Kia Optima will not start at times

2002 Kia Optima starts at times, then will not turn start at all. Battery good, fuel pump was replaced because of this problem, oxygen sensor was replaced because of this problem, and another sensor was replaced because of this problem. Had to leave the car at a church I visited in another town. Any suggestions...my mechanic says when hooked up to the machine that it has no bad readings and shown nothing wrong.

My 2002 kia optima 2.4L had the same problem till I took it to a local muffler shop and told him to cut out the catalytic converter. ran like a champ after that.

02 Kia optima, slight front end accident. Now will not turn over, gauges and electrical work. Problem?


I think this car has a special relay (fuel pump emergency shut off) under the hood that shuts off the fuel pump after a crash. Call the dealer and ask for a new one, it is a one time use and must be replaced.

Was it running before you changed the pump ?
Do you have spark to the plugs, fuel pressure, and normal compression ??

My 2004 Kia optima recently died while being driven, I had it towed home...i replaced the fuel pump(fuel filter and fuel pump strainer), it also has a new battery. It started up just fine after the fuel...


Then you have a intermittent spark . Now do you have a spark tester to test spark. Its okay if you dont we have one . Oh by the way you did the fuel pump yourself. if you can do a fuel pump then you can do this to solve the no start problem. No spark tester? okay we will use that tachometer (RPM gauge). crank the engine does the tach meter reads zero at all times while cranking, if it does youll need a crank sensor. Here the story Rough running conditions and or stalling was caused by a faulty crank sensor, try shaking the connector or wiggle the crank connector then see if it starts. Youll need to inspect the connection for proper male to female connection these have been the most suspectable failure of KIA. If you decide to replace this sensor make sure connections are good, more than likely this was the problem and not the fuel pump

My 04 kia optima will not start


check make sure battery is 12.5 volts.if not battery is weak need replacing.have alternator checked out if battery is low.besure to turn off radio.to keep from losing radio playing code.if you need to replace battery.if battery is good.check for fuel pump operation.turn ignition on listen to see if fuel pump running.if no check fuse and relay.if both is good have car scanned for pcm trouble codes and faulty fuel pump code.if all is good.you could have faulty mass air flow sensor or bad ignition components.
