If you have never done one take it to a shop because if you have the timing off a little you take a chance of bending valves then you would need a new head

Change your crankshaft sensor located behind lower timing belt cover. The way I check it is to unplug the maf and see if it will start if so stop the engine and do a diagnostic 3 DTC's should come up on screen ,one would be the crankshaft sensor. This should be done by a experienced tech.

My car stopped a dead stop


If you were driving and your Kia Optima just turned off. Your timimg belt broke and you will also need a crank shaft sensor too. There is a total of two belts inside the motor area (timing belt and balance belt) I would change out the ac and power steering belt as well so their is a total of four belts on the KIA 2004 OPTIMA.

Where is the crankshaft sensor located on a 2004 kia optima


I just replaced the crankshaft sensor back in November. It is a bit of work to access, but you will find it on the inner crankshaft sprocket. This is under the lower timing belt cover. It is just a black sensor that partially covers the sprocket. You will need to remove the serpentine belts and outer crankshaft sprocket to access it. At the time I needed to change it, I also happened to be changing the timing belts as well so if you need those done soon, this would be a good time to get them done.

6cyl LX location of the crankshaft sensor


The crankshaft position sensor is bolted to the block about a quarter inch away from your crank. Not the crank pulley but the actual crank. This means removing the cover for the timing belt and the timing belt itself along with many other parts. I have a 06 kia optima and I had to replace my crankshaft sensor, believe me you do not want to try unless you are mechanically inclined. If you remove the timing belt cover and look right next to the crank there is a little plastic piece bolted on with 2 bolts. That would be your crank sensor. Don't take timing belt off until you have all components lined up oil pump, crank, cams, etc. Also mark your belt at the marks when they are lined up so when you put it back on you know its right. If you do decide to replace it and you need some advice let me know and I would be glad to help. Hope that info helps you out.
