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??

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! Kamal
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.
well if you need to change the coil because of a missfire then the engine codes should tell you wich cylinders were missfireing the just see wich one goes to that cylinder
those coils just dont go bad normaly
why you replacing it?
