Check for loose oil filter or pinched o ring for filter. also check for loose drain plug in oil pan. make sure copper o ring is present on the oil pan plug. look for other evidence of excessive leakage.

I have a 2011 Kia Optima with 130000 miles on it. I go through 4 quarts of oil before my 3000 mile oil change. I was wounding if there is any kind of recall or what can you suggest.


As the engine wears out oil slips past rings and valve seals the oil becomes blowby and the engine just uses oil. It does not have to smoke to use oil.

Where are the headlight fuses?


Mitch, No fuse for the headlamps. Controlled by the IPM,(Intelligent integrated Platform Module) fuse box under dash, has a built in smart circuit breaker that trips. It should reset if the key is cycled, but if the short is still there it will open again.
Check the attached links, last link shows IPM.

I have a 2004 Kia Optima with a 2.4 liter engine. Should it use 4.34 quarts in a 3000 mile oil change cycle? We were told this is within specs for this car. It has 73000 miles on it.


its used how much ?? thats 8 pints of oil which is about 5 litres in 3000 miles whats it doing leaving a blue haze behind it ,i think this engine needs looking at as this amount of oil consumption will kill the catalytic converter

Was there scheduled maintenance due on the 2001 Kia Optima, example the timing belt?


The timing belt is due at 60,000 miles. This is real critical. If you are in nedd of a schedule to go by then email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com and I can send you a full schedule. Also send how many miles are currently on the vehicle and which engine(4 or 6 cylinder). DO NOT SKIMP ON THESE, USE THE HYUNDAI/KIA OIL FILTERS!! There are current recalls regarding the oil filters and the oil light on the dash. I have worked at the dealer as a Master Tech, so please heed this warning.
