How do i check the oil in a 2005 kia opt standard tramission


There are typically two plugs on the side of the transmission one is the fill and the lower one it the drain. Fill until the top hole begins to leak oil as the oil level is to the max position.

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.

2004 Kia Optima Oil light blinking. Doesthat mean I need to change my oil pump or oil filter with oil change?


A flashing oil light usally means low oil pressure. If the oil pressure drops below a set point the light will contiune to flash even if the pressure rises back up to normal until you resart the car. Start simple and check the oil. If low then add. Keep an eye on it, if your losing it, its going somewhere, exhaust, or out a seal or if you went to jiffy lube, probably out of the oil filter due to it not being tightened. If oil is ok, your oil pump may be bad. That job is a little complex.

I have a 2004 kia optima with 52000 miles on it. After every fill up at the gas station no matter if I put 5 dollars or 20 to fill the tank up the car won't start unless I put my foot to the gas pedal and...


Two things come to mind. You broke the pressure seal to the fuel system when you took off the gas cap. The fresh gas rushing in disturbs any dirt or debris on the bottom of the tank.
Next time you use the car when you arrive at our destination, simulate what you do when you fuel up. This will mimic everythig except the new fuel rushing in. If it is still hard to start you know it's something to do with the evaporative fuel system. If not, you need the fuel tank inspected .
