How old is your battery? Someone needs to check the battery's condition and state of charge, someone with a voltmeter. Also, if any battery or starter connections are not good or are loose, the starter may not be able to get the high current it needs from the battery to operate.
If the battery and cables turn out to be good, it is just possible that you got a defective starter. It has happened, and to check you would have to take the starter back off and have it tested.

SOURCE: 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.

My 2001 Kia optima will not accelerate over 3000 rpm


I had that exact problem with my 2005 Kia optima.. It suddenly started one morning.. My Kia would not turn over.. I felt it was a power issue so I unattached my after market fog-lights that I have attached to my battery.. That got my ride to start, but upon driving it refused to go past 3000 rpms (in all gears)... I took apart my battery terminals and scrubbed them down with a tooth brush and coca-cola.. That was a perfect fix for my situation.. My Kia ran perfectly right after...
Good luck

Sounds like a fuel problem. Replace your fuel filter and add Techroline (Chevron product) fuel injector cleaner to clean your injectors.
