SOURCE: can't find the fuel filter in a 2005 kia optima

klaudie: This car does not really get serviced very often unless there are contaminants in the tank. I checked the Kia factory maintenance schedule and there is NO reference to fuel filter replacement. It seems that many manufacturers are now just putting screens or socks in the tanks before the fuel pump and no longer use fuel filters. KIA just puts a fine screen before the fuel pump. The pump is in the fuel tank which warrants it's removal to access the pump.
A strong word of advise of this engine!!!!!
Do NOT let the timing belt go beyond 60,000 miles. I could find no reference in Kia's maintenance schedule for timing belt replacement. According to them it's a judgment call by the tech! THAT IS TOTAL INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the belt breaks in this engine you will trash the upper end of the motor and be spending big bucks! Nearly all automotive manufacturers had scheduled timing belt replacements at 60,000 miles and suddenly a lot of them just extended the time and distance, but the part numbers, manufacturers and designs didn't appear to have changed. I have had many cars in my shop where people did not heed my warning. Some get lucky and others have to hock their kids fo afford the cost of their negligence.

How do i change the starter on 2005 kia optima


The starter and solenoid is located behind two separate aluminum heat shields right directly behind the exhaust manifold. (The exhaust manifold is right in back of the radiator. Take off both heat shields, then remove the two bolts that hold the starter. I disconnected one of the wire harnesses that was in the way to give me more room to work. Don't forget to disconnect the battery terminal before starting the project as you will need to remove the positive terminal on the solenoid to remove the assembly from the vehicle.
