The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

Fuel filters usually are under the car and run along the frame or unibody. Should be round cylinder shaped with lines going in one side and out the other.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima washer fluid
your pump could have went out or the line is full of gunk,turn the key on but dont start the engine,have someone listen for the washer pump when you turn it on,if it works pull your hoses and blow them out,may have to remove the washer fluid reservoir to check the pump out!

Then you have a intermittent spark . Now do you have a spark tester to test spark. Its okay if you dont we have one . Oh by the way you did the fuel pump yourself. if you can do a fuel pump then you can do this to solve the no start problem. No spark tester? okay we will use that tachometer (RPM gauge). crank the engine does the tach meter reads zero at all times while cranking, if it does youll need a crank sensor. Here the story Rough running conditions and or stalling was caused by a faulty crank sensor, try shaking the connector or wiggle the crank connector then see if it starts. Youll need to inspect the connection for proper male to female connection these have been the most suspectable failure of KIA. If you decide to replace this sensor make sure connections are good, more than likely this was the problem and not the fuel pump

If you have no wiring diagrams or experience
with electrical troubleshooting, your just guessing
and wasting time
Fuses,Relays and all the things you hear about,
just don't up & fail that offten.
You didn't say what the problem was
If it doesn't start or shuts off while driving,
the fuel pump may be worn out.
If you had an owners manual you would know where the
relays are. I don't. I would need the same info you do
