My car stopped a dead stop

If you were driving and your Kia Optima just turned off. Your timimg belt broke and you will also need a crank shaft sensor too. There is a total of two belts inside the motor area (timing belt and balance belt) I would change out the ac and power steering belt as well so their is a total of four belts on the KIA 2004 OPTIMA.

2004 kia optima lx, engine will turn over but will not start.

The fuel line is connected to fuel injector Rail by 2 nuts (10mm) (from your right) next to air hose to air filter. Disconnect fuel line and start engine to see whether gas shoots out of the line. If not, fuel pump is broken. Engine turns over but not start , it could be iginition lost (no sparks ). or timing belt got rip broken.

Go to auto Zones (auto part store) borrown ODB II scanner loaner and take it home, hook to ODBII connector that's located at the driver side to your right. Read the codes given by the scanner and go from there.

If a timing belt is broken, open timing belt cover to check on the belt.

If your belt is broken and crushed apiece, you may have to rebuild the whole engine as it's an interference belt.

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

2004 KIA Optima Timing Belt Installation

I have never heard of a "timed oil pump" but there can be a first. Also the timing belt is supposed to be tight. Alot of cars are "interferance" motors. Which means if the timing belt goes all the rods stop where they are and the pistons continue there rotation resulting in smashed rods and valves. It should be very tight to get on, try wrenching on the tensioner when you put on the belt. Even get another person to do one while you do the other. Good luck.

2004 Kia Optima

Chances are you have an issue with one of the following

1.) Spark plugs and or wires (Boots)
2.) Coil
3.) Crank Position sensor (or Blade)
4.) Timing belt may be heading for replacement.

How many miles are on the car?
I recommend having the timing belt replaced at or before the recommended intervals as with theses cars they almost go like clock work.
