Question about 2004 Kia Optima
Where is the gas filter exactly located?
My 2004 Optima did nt have filter exactly. There is only a filter bag type device on the inlet to the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located in the gas tank and is accessed by rolling back the carpet in the trunk... I have 165K on mine and never changed this filter. No parts listed at NAPA or other store for filter. Just put some injector cleaner into the gas tank every mont and should be fine

I had to look for mine last night. The filter is in the gas tank. Just pull out the carpet in your trunk and you will see the access.

SOURCE: where exactly are the spark
Welcome to Fixya
The front (cylinders 1, 3, 5) are easy to get to with 3/8" drive sparl plug socket, an extension bar and ratchet. As for the back 3, put the vehicle up on stands at the front, grab the spark plug socket, a short extension bar and the rachet, crawl underneath the front of the car on your back. 2 hands are required. First off, remove the plug leads by a small twist then pull. This is where the plug lead might break. Once the ignition leads are out of the way (yes, even though they seem to come up hard against the firewall - by manipulating them they can be removed), drop the plug socket down the hole onto the spark plug, feed the short extension bar into the hole and click it onto the socket, then feed the ratchet up to the extension bar (2 hands) and proceed to loosen/undo the spark plug. If you don't have the socket with the rubber piece in the end of it - to grip onto the plug, then you will need a thin magnet to drag them out with. Reverse the process for installation.
Cabin filter is located under/behind the glove box. The box door is easily removed for access to the filter.
Thank you for usiong Fixya!
