SOURCE: Alternator Removal

what i heard that it is like removing it from under the car which is not possible without lifting the 4 wheels. Also you may want to first do this before removing the alternator, even the multimeter shows the alternator failed test. Simply go underneath the car to check for the wire that comes out from the alternator and goes to the battery to charge it up. This particular wire that is coming out from the alternator to charge up the battery is completely fused or burnt.

    SOURCE: 2001 kia optima. the alternator bad , the car

    My 2001 Kia Optima had a very similar problem last month (Dec 09). At first everybody was saying it's the alternator. I almost spent the $250. on a new one, but I did some troubleshooting and It turns out the positive battery cable had failed. It was corroded and no longer conducting electricity. It is only sold as a harness, and had quite a few places where it bolts to the fusebox, frame, block, starter, and alternator. I paid $104. on the internet for the part, and $90. to have my local dealer install it, since it is very involved. Good luck

    SOURCE: 2001 Kia Optima Alternator 4 Cyclinder change from top or bottom

    Bottom! I'm sure some hot shot mechanics with very specialized tools could do it from the top, but the rest of us will need to access it from the bottom. Good luck, and use good jack stands!

    Use good jackstands and remove from the bottom using basic metric shop tools. The tensioner for the belt will be accessed from the top. Here is kia's tech website: http://www.kiatechinfo.com/index.asp Register here to get free access to online manuals for your "MS" series 01 Optima. You can even print the diagrams. Good luck, it's about a 2.5 hour job, 1.5 hour at the dealership.

    I need to know what the spark plug wire firing order is on a 2001 KIA Optima V6 2.5L


    Most gasoline six cylinder engines fire in sequential order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And most cylinders are numbered the same. Looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle. The left cylinders are old starting at 1 closest to you and in sequential order. The right cylinders are even starting at 2 closest to you and in sequential order.

    How to change side door mirror kia 2001 optima


    Not sure. Check with a junk yard they are good at those questions. The swap is EASY. just remove the interior triangle shaped cover, and remove the nuts and wires to take off the old one. Some Optimas also have tweeters in that location, use caution if you have them, they are expensive to replace. good luck!
