    The car has a rollover sensor. Car does not have to rollover for the sensor to go out. I spent hundreds trying to figure out the same issue you have. Research that sensor and save some money. Hope this helps.

Recheck your timing marks. Sounds like valve timing is off. Check compression it needs a minimum 90 lbs to run. Bet you money the timing belt was put on out of phase.

SOURCE: 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

Could be a blown head gasket. You may need another engine but a used engine installed should not cost more than the car is worth.

2004 Kia Optima runs on only three cylinders


Only need three things to run. Fuel, spark and compression. If you have spark and injector pulse you might want to compression test the suspect cylinder. A leak down test with compressed air with the adjacent spark plug(s) removed wouldn't hurt either to verify no bad head gasket. Good luck

Engine not starting quits when seems to almost turn over,


Check Spark and Fuel, one is missing. If both are there then floor the gas padle and try again, donot pump gas as the spark plugs get flooded with gas and wont fire up the engine.

2001 Kia Magentis engine missfiring , installed


check new spark plugs for proper gap.
It may have gotten hit when installing it.check coils second for resistance/firing. sometimes one bank will work fine and the other side will misfire-always replace all together or as a unit. Check
engine for compression if problem pre existed
and check for low compression. if 1 cylinder
has 120 psi and two havepsi below 90 you may have
a cracked head or bad head gasket.
