SOURCE: fuel filter

first, you have to drain the oil from the drain plug located at the bottom of the oil pan,

after all of the oil have been drain, tighten back the drain plug bolt.

then remove the old oil filter by using a filter wrench, you would need this wrench because it is very hard to remove by plain hands. the oil filter is located at the bottom of the engine or sometimes at its side.

after removing the old one, apply a thin coat of new oil to the rubber o-rings of the new oil filter before inserting just to make a good seal as you tighten it.

now open the oil filler cap at the top of the engine and pour the exact amount of new oil that was specified in your book. and also the correct type of oil that it uses.

then start the engine for 5 mins, turn t off and check the amount of oil at the dip stick. add if necessary..

i hope i was able to fix ur problem...

SOURCE: replace the fuel filter

yes, just locate your fuel filter. sometimes it is just in the engine compartment in the fuel line. if it is only a plastic filter then just remove the hoses attached to it and transfer the hoses to the new filter. be cautious when handling gasoline. be careful. if the filter is fitted in the fuel line, then all you have to do is loosen up the fittings and replace the filter. these fittings are normally use in metal filters.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: can't find the fuel filter in a 2005 kia optima

klaudie: This car does not really get serviced very often unless there are contaminants in the tank. I checked the Kia factory maintenance schedule and there is NO reference to fuel filter replacement. It seems that many manufacturers are now just putting screens or socks in the tanks before the fuel pump and no longer use fuel filters. KIA just puts a fine screen before the fuel pump. The pump is in the fuel tank which warrants it's removal to access the pump.
A strong word of advise of this engine!!!!!
Do NOT let the timing belt go beyond 60,000 miles. I could find no reference in Kia's maintenance schedule for timing belt replacement. According to them it's a judgment call by the tech! THAT IS TOTAL INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the belt breaks in this engine you will trash the upper end of the motor and be spending big bucks! Nearly all automotive manufacturers had scheduled timing belt replacements at 60,000 miles and suddenly a lot of them just extended the time and distance, but the part numbers, manufacturers and designs didn't appear to have changed. I have had many cars in my shop where people did not heed my warning. Some get lucky and others have to hock their kids fo afford the cost of their negligence.
