My 2004 Kia optima shut off will driving. It cranks but doesn't want to start up. Can any body help me?


Well , it's probably missing one of three thing's , spark , fuel or compression ! Now you need to find out which one , pull a spark plug wire an hold a screw driver in the end of the plug wire an hold it close to ground an have someone crank the engine over ! don't hold the screw driver by the metal , you don't won't to get zapped . If there is spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine at some point ,vacuum hose ,air intake , the throttle plate would be best , there is usually a black tube going from the air filter box to the engine ! A couple of clamps holds it on , take it off an the engine side you should be able to see the throttle plate ! If it tries to start after spraying carb. cleaner in , you have a fuel delivery problem ! Fuel pump relay , fuel pump driver module or the fuel pump it self is bad ! Now if you have spark an sprayed carb. cleaner an it did not try to start you need to check engine compression ! The timing belt may have worn enough for it to jump time a little causing it to be out of time ! Back in the 80's the little cogs on the belt would wear off an the cam shaft wouldn't turn . Back then it was easy to check by taking the distributor cap off a see if it would turn while cranking the engine !

Torque spec optima 2.4L


unimportant.
use 1 hand and just snug it up. not real tight , just a little pressure past the stop.
i never seen a spark plug wiggle loose, since the spark plug wire doesn't allow it to spin

The plugs are under the ignition coils, there are no plug wires the coils sit right on top of the motor I believe. A friend of mine has Kia Sophia and that's his is.
