Loosen the belt on the alternator and see if it will turn! A siezed bearing could be the prob!

SOURCE: won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?

If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

SOURCE: 2006 kia sedona shuts off while driving restarts

The kia's seem to have problems with the crankshaft sensors. I just pulled up the 2004 Kia Optima Issues for them here in fix-ya and found step by step instructions for fixing it in the 4 cyl. cars. Warnings about doing it wrong can damage the engine and the the amount of work it involves lead me to think a mechanic would the best way to go. But if you research it more the 4 and V6 motors are different. While it runs I would take it to a shop because most people say their car just stopped.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I had the same things happen to me and it turned out to be a fuel pump. Here is the thing though. There are a lot of things that cause the car to not start. You need air, fuel, and fire to start the car. It could be a fuel issue. Check and see if you can hear your fuel pump kicking on when you first turn the key. You need to check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and reset button, if equipped. It could be a clogged fuel filter or gas line, possibly a fuel injector. If these check out, you need to start looking at the ignition system. Check the spark plugs/coils, wires, coil pack, distributor, cap, rotor. It could be anyone of them. This is why you need to test them and see if you are getting spark. If you are, we can rule them out. If not, they will need tested. It could be a broken timing belt/chain. It could be a cam sensor or crank sensor. It could be the computer. I know it is a lot of parts, but if any of them are bad, it can cause the car to not start. As long as it is cranking, you can rule out the battery, starter, and alternator, more less the charging system. Check what you can and refer to a manual as much as possible. You can test for fuel pressure to rule out the fuel and test for spark to rule out most of the ignitions. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. The best way to solve any issues is by trying to get a code off the computer. Autozone and other part stores sell the computer scanner for around 40-100 dollars. If you can get a code, it may lead you to your problem. I will answer them as soon as I can. Thanks for using FixYa and best wishes.

Had problem starting, engine stopped while driving


Have you ever cleaned the throttle valve and idle speed control valve? this is on the stall issue. the starter sounds like the contacts may be burnt in the starter solenoid, this is common on this type of Japanese starter at about this mileage, you can rebuild the starter solenoid or just replace it.

2002 kia sportage stopped and would not restart while driving


If it wont turn over and all that happens is the starter makes noise, it could be an alternator issue. If your alternator is bad, then you battery wont recharge and eventually it wont have enough power to restart the engine.
