Wheres the location of the radiator drain plug on 2003 kia optima?

Bottom of radiator tank at the rear of the tank, it is most often on the driver's side, you need to go under the car to see the drain valve. I don't do it that way, I just remove the lower radiator hose from the lower radiator hose nipple to drain the coolant.

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!

I have a kia optima 2004 that has a kill switch need to know where it is its draining my battery untill i reset it but cant find it

If you put the following into Google it shows a number of items can be reset.

"2004 kia optima reset"

One site says the Optima doesn't have a fuel pump reset, but offers this on another site

It may be under hood above brake booster, has red button to reset, the 2004 kia spectra,s are located there so i can only assume that the optima would be there to.

There is also information on resetting the computer. This will clear the engine malfunction light. There is a section in my Tips if you click on my name on resetting the vehicle ant-theft system, which is the same thing as it is controlled by the ECM.

Having said all that, drain or correctly named 'parasitic draw', is from lights being left on in the hood or trunk, or some other electrical device shorting to earth. They are difficult to find and you need a good auto-electrician.

I want to flush the coolant on a 2003 Kia Optima 2.4 liter Auto with A/C. How much antifreeze should I buy to mix with water? What is the total coolant capacity?

Coolant capacity is 7.7 qts./7.3 liters, for a 2.4 liter 2003 Kia Optima.
You will not be able to get all the coolant out of the engine, unless you do a thorough engine drain and flush. If you only plan on draining the radiator, you will need less than 2 gallons mixed total to refill it, since some coolant will remain in the engine block and heater core.
