2006 Kia Optima oil light flashes sometimes when Ideling. Don't know what to do.

When the oil lamp lights, it means that your oil pump is not giving the right pressure or it is not working, If it only happens during idling, it indicates that the pump is about to wear and needs servicing, If its intermittent, it may just be a loose wire connection to the sender or a defective sending unit. Try to replace first the oil pressure sending unit.

The speedometer on my 2003 KIA, Optima quit working how do I fix it, or what should I look for?

This a electronic sender unit fault or wiring fault.
The sender unit in the gearbox is faulty or the wiring from the sender to the dash display is faulty. Have these checked, it will be either of them.
