Question about 2004 Kia Optima

1 Answer

Power loss on V4 Optima.

I was driving my Kia Optima 2004 LX on the freeway. Stop and go traffic, through construction, when power died to it completely! I have never had this happens before, and I know it wasn't the alternator, since it was so sudden. Any idea what it could be??

I have an 03 kia optima lx my car will cut off while I'm driving. Can you please tell me what the problem is. I would very much appreciate your input on this matter


this is caused by the crankshaft position sensor located behind the timing belt. this sensor cuts off the power to the spark plug so the car won't start. it happened with my kia and then everything went fine!

My car stopped a dead stop


If you were driving and your Kia Optima just turned off. Your timimg belt broke and you will also need a crank shaft sensor too. There is a total of two belts inside the motor area (timing belt and balance belt) I would change out the ac and power steering belt as well so their is a total of four belts on the KIA 2004 OPTIMA.

This could be multiple issues.
1.) timing belt
2.) Crank sensor
3.) Fuel pump (although usually they do not just die they get weak)

Check these let me know.
