Question about 2004 Kia Optima
Posted by Anonymous on
My KIA did similar things. I would drive and it would lose power briefly, with the CHECK ENGINE light coming on briefly. It did this a couple of times and then seemed to act okay. Later that day, I was leaving a restaurant and as I was going around the partking lot, it died. I couldn't get it to start. It being a Sunday, I had to wait to the next day to get it towed to somewhere to have it checked. While waiting for the tow truck, I tried to start the car and it started, but I wasn't taking any chances. It turned out that the Choke Module was bad.

You need fuel, compression and a spark for a engine to run, with out any of these it won't run. Oh and these things need to happen at the right time. Check you have fuel at the injectors, then check you have a spark at the plugs. The compression is a little more difficult so then you need a mechanic.
