The mark is inside on the block at about the 10:30 -11:00 o'clock position. It looks like a dash mark. It is between the crankshaft and the balance shaft side. Hope this helps.

2004 kia optima fires but wont start

Recheck your timing marks. Sounds like valve timing is off. Check compression it needs a minimum 90 lbs to run. Bet you money the timing belt was put on out of phase.

Crank no start

Remove the plugs and check you are getting compressions to the cylinders first, preferably with a compression guage, but you could use a finger, possibly this is the problem.
Suspect either bent valves or your valve timing is out?

Good Luck !

My 2004 Kia optima died right in the middle of me driving down the road. What is going on with it I replaced the battery and it still wont work

Check the crank position sensor.

Also make sure the belt tensioner is in good shape(its hydraulic) Also there is a circular metal plate behind crank sensor that needs to be clean and not cracked/dammaged. check these items and let me know if it fixes.

The timing also has to be perfect or you will have issues. there are timing marks on the belt pulleys
