Question about 2006 Kia Optima

2 Answers

Engine shut off, not getting any fire.

I have a 2006 kia optima lx, and it cut off on me as i was driving, my husband check the timing but that was not it, as he was checking in the engine area he found a small belt that was around in the cam area next to the timing and it was striped. Could this be the problem to my car not firing, or could it be the crank sensor. pls help me if u can.

    Thank you so much speeddemon, that's the problem.

    Timing is ok. It is the small belt between the crank and cam, if i get another belt do u think that would fix the problem or would i have to fix the crank sensor 2? (anyone)

Usually if no plugs are firing it would be a crank sensor but in the cam area you have a timing belt that keeps the timing between the crank and the cam if that has broken or stripped then it will not start and may have done some extensive damage to the engine.

    the small belt between the crank and the cam is the timing belt. so timing is not ok. you can try replacing but sometimes will have bent the valves and ruined the motor when they break. good luck.

I have an 03 kia optima lx my car will cut off while I'm driving. Can you please tell me what the problem is. I would very much appreciate your input on this matter


this is caused by the crankshaft position sensor located behind the timing belt. this sensor cuts off the power to the spark plug so the car won't start. it happened with my kia and then everything went fine!

Need how to set timing belt on kia optima


I had 2006 kia optima 2.4 liter LX, I drove 150000 miles plus, it was over 100,000 miles I changed timing belt, and AC belt, alternator belt is still ok, but it was my fault, I did not change crank shaft balance belt, it next to timing belt, this very important, timing belt and crank shaft balance belt must change same time, you set all mark the same positions, you can see all clear marked
if you had OBD2 scanner is helpful to read all faulty codes if you do it your self repair
if you have any problems about KIA optima, please post on any websites, to share some ideas to other KIA optima owners, like me, I change oil every 2500 miles to make my optima runs smoother
automatic transmission fluid change every year if you put high mileage on your car, optima had hard time to find it own part some time, radiator hoses are still good condition and had hard time to find in any auto part stores in my home town, good luck and thanks for sharing.

In my 2006 kia optima lx, I need to get the fuel tank lock ring off. but how, cant seem to drive it off. Is there a special tool?


You should be able to get it off with a screwdriver and a hammer. They are pretty tricky to get off. And they are even harder to get back on. But you CAN do it with a hammer and screwdriver. They may make a special tool. But I have always used a hammer and screwdriver.

2008 kia optima LX Check Engine Light


P0442 EVAP Leak Monitor .040 Leak Detected (Medium Leak)

P0456 EVAP Leak Monitor .020 Leak Detected

replace your gas cap and clear codes, then wait and see if light comes back on, if it does you have a more serious problem like a fuel tank leak or a defective fuel tank pressure sensor.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2006 Kia Optima Lx?


sgutowski283: the LX had 2 different engines which could have been in you car. However, KIA has engineered their engines to where the oil filter is located at the very front of the engine below the front crank pulley on both the 4 and 6 cylinder engines.
STAY AWAY FROM CHEAP OIL AND CHEAP OIL FILTERS! You engine will last for 200,000 miles easily, if taken care of.
Good luck, Give the folks at FIXYA some feed back if your happy with my assistance.
Thanks.

This could be multiple issues.
1.) timing belt
2.) Crank sensor
3.) Fuel pump (although usually they do not just die they get weak)

Check these let me know.
