Check if the fan works, if not working check the fuse, relay and fan motor. If the fan works well water pump check if everything is okay you might have problem in cilynder head.Thanks

Where is the fuel pump fuse on a 2002 kia optima located


Most Kia cars have fuse boxes that are well labelled. One is located in the engine bay. The other is in the passenger compartment, under the dashboard, either driver's side or passenger side. Check the fuel pump relay if you have confirmed that your fuel pump is not receiving +12V at the connector end. Some models have the relay as part of the main relay. Some have individual relays. These relays are located nearest to the ECU behind center console, screwed to the posts at the sides of the console.

It's possible that your oil level is low or it's time for an oil filter change.
If not, it's possible that the rockers need adjustment, but I doubt it. Good luck

I own a 2002 Kia Optima. Recently, there is a rumbling noise coming from the front center of the car into the cabin onc you get underway. The faster you go, the louder the rumbling noise. No other problems...


no worries about the airbag light. just be sure to wear you seatbelt. in the event of and accident the airbag may or may not deploy! but to replace the airbag unit its self will be very costly $800-2500. as for the noise you may need to be more specific. its can be anything from alignment, bad ball join, bad motor mount or tran mount, bent rim, or even a bad tire
