My 2005 kia optima doesn't have any spark?

It may be the ignition coil pack. The image below is a generic image, and may not be identical to what you have on your vehicle

Have a look on the following link:

However, before you purchase or replace any parts it would make more sense to give a mobile mechanic a call and get him to look at your car. There are a number of things that can cause no-spark and rather than change components in the hope you can fix the problem, get somebody to examine your car first

Can you adjust valve clearance on kia optima 2.0 cdti

Depends on the year and engine. The older engines have hydrolic lifters. The newer engines 06 and up with CVVT have solid lifters so you would have to pull the valve covers and use a feeler gauge to measure clearances and replace the tappets accordingly.

Kia 2.4 optima 07 engine makes knocking noise when I press fuel pad to move..I can't press fuel pad strongly the knocking noise increases more and may broken the rings

Sound like you have spun a bearing do to a blown head gasket. Does the oil on the dipstick look almost like a chocolate milkshake in color? If so your coolant has reached the oil pan and that can definitely cause the engine to spin a bearing causing a loud knocking sound.

Kia Optima 2005, Engine gets over heated in slow speed, but cools down to normal in speed around 40 miles per hour. This is due for 60K miles service. what could be the issue

You have a problem with the rad fan. This could be a fuse, wiring, an so on. Do Not drive this car until this is corrected!! Overheating a car is like a person having a stroke! Some come back, others don't.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.

It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive
