How long did you run the car when it was hot? Pull your oil dipstick and look a the oil. What color is it? Does it look like a dirty milkshake or does it look like chocolate syrup?

Testimonial: "almost 30 minutes, the oil looks normal"

SOURCE: Engine Check Light - 2006 KIA Optima


Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.

If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.

Very best regards

2003 Kia optima run good til turn off and now won't start. Cranked and cranked til the starter made high pitch crank sound like it wasn't getting pressure. Noticed the surpintine turned but not timing

sounds like you need to replace the timing belt and possibly need to have the cylinder head repaired if it bent the valves, put the belt first and if it doesn't have compression then you'll need to have the head repaired

Why would a 2001 Kia Optima SE cut off while driving and not restart?

If it cuts out while driving and once it cools down a bit will restart your problem could be the crank sensor.

My 2009 kia optima sx sometimes loses alot of power taking off, then gradually builds back up in a few seconds. the check engine light is on. It also stalled a couple of times after cranking it up. All of...

Sounds like yer car is stuffed, the person who hit cha should pay for it and some. Take it to the mechanic and tell em to give you a quote to fix it and give it to the a$$hole.
