First!.. Has anyone VERIFIED the cause as bad gas? Seems to me that is the first thing to be ruled out... ya think? Best solution: Once 'BAD GAS' is VERIFIED, empty the fuel tank and get RID of the bad gas. Then, purge the fuel lines of this 'BAD GAS'.. then see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, then there's something else wrong.

How to know if it is my fuel pump relay that is bad on my 2003 Kia Optima


normally this would be noticed by bad performance in the car in the way the engine acts when you push on the gas peddle normally a fuel pump needs two things to work the relay and the fuse if either two stops working you may notice decreased performance of the car's engine or that it refuses to run at all

How do i clean my fuel injectors for my 2004 kia optima


You can buy injector cleaner that you add to your gas at an auto parts store. "seafoam" brand works alright. It is a great preventative measure but if you are having issues, it is rarely a fix.

2001 kia optima headlights issues


Each light has its own fuse. Have you checked them? Maybe try switching two of them to see if they swap which one works... Once in a while a fuse that looks good has actually gone bad. Comment on this post if this doesn't help and we can move to the next step. Good luck!

I own 2001 Kia Optima LX, it has 121k miles on it. The check engine light is on, and recently it jerks when moving. It does not pickup speed. It moves at 20-40 miles/hour, then after a while it picks up...


The locking steering wheel is a mystery to me , but the poor performance and check engine light make me think fuel filter / fuel pump.
I had a very bad experience with an 02 kia , only had 50,000 miles on it when the timing belt went and destroyed the engine , so........ i always mention to people with kia's to have the belt adjusted and inspected or replaced if you don't know how old the belt is.

2001 Kia Optima acceleration drop out problem


I would have them check the Sensor that is located on top of the transmission, I had a similar problem back when I bought mine. And I was told that the sensor was Bad, and there was a recall on it and it is a common problem. Because of where the Sensor is located it is a pain to get to, they have to drop the transmission. So for me anyways instead of just dropping the transmission to swap out the sensor, the Kia dealership that we bought the car from Replaced the whole Transmission/Sensor with a brand new Tranny. I have over 160,000 miles on the Car now and I have had no problems since.
