Question about 2002 Kia Optima
Replacing the alternator is not going to help with your emissions at all. If your NOx readings are too high, there is a good chance that your catalytic convertor has gone bad. My suggestion would be to take it to an exhaust shop for the catalytic convertor (they should also be able to let you know if it is bad). As far as your alternator replacement, you can take it to any repair shop (possibly the same one who does the exhaust work) and they should be able to assist you with replacing it. Hope this helps.
