SOURCE: Engine Check Light - 2006 KIA Optima

Hi

Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.

If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.

Very best regards

SOURCE: Sun visor on 2006 Kia

My daughter had the same problem with her visor. I put velcro on the visor to try to keep it up out of the way but after a while the velcro came lose and the visor came down again. I called KIA and talked with a technician. I was told that in order to fix the visor I would have to remove the cloth so I should be able to sew. Not a viable solution. We ended up taking her car in and had a new visor put on. It was covered under warranty. Had problems with headlights going out. Bought the replacement bulbs from NAPA. They only lasted a few months. Started purchasing the bulbs from the dealer and have not had to replace them for over a year. Have to pay a little more but it is worth not having to hassle with their replacement.

I need to know where on the motor the trottle position senser is located on a 2006 kia optima lx v6


All throttle position sensors, have to be on the throttle body,
on order for the computer to recognize throttle position & convert
to throttle plate angle %

Any code you get, on an OBD2 System, doesn't mean to change parts

The codes are used to follow manufactures charts, to diagnose
the code fault, somewhere in one of the vehicles systems

On all vehicles if you follow the air intake, from the filter to the
intake manifold,you get to the throttle body

Given your question,I suggest you leave the diagnosing to
an experienced person

Where is the fuel sensor on a 2006 kia optima


It depends on WHICH fuel sensor are you looking for. The fuel level sensor is part of the fuel pump module assembly, which is located INSIDE the fuel tank. The fuel temperature sensor is mounted in the TOP of the fuel tank.
Note: The fuel teperature sensor only applies to early production 2.4L engines. Other 2006 Kia Optima's are not equipped with one.

Where is the crank shaft sensor on a 2006 kia optima


Hi LIsa:
On 2001-2005 vehicles the crankshaft sensor is mounted on the front of the transmission case adjacent to the flywheel.

On 2006 vehicles the crankshaft position sensor is located next to the radiator hose inlet and outlet assembly.

I really hope this helps, and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

Jose.

Although is could be a fuel filter, it could also be a fouled spark plug, or a bad spark plug wire. Once you've ruled these things out, the problem could be the TPS (throttle position sensor). This controls your idling speed under all conditions. A faulty TPS will usually idle fine when the engine is cold but once warm, will tend to sputter and in some cases, stall.
