Sgutowski283: the LX had 2 different engines which could have been in you car. However, KIA has engineered their engines to where the oil filter is located at the very front of the engine below the front crank pulley on both the 4 and 6 cylinder engines.
STAY AWAY FROM CHEAP OIL AND CHEAP OIL FILTERS! You engine will last for 200,000 miles easily, if taken care of.
Good luck, Give the folks at FIXYA some feed back if your happy with my assistance.
Thanks.

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

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.
