Question about 2001 Kia Optima
The most likely problem is the fuel pump, which will need to be replaced.
On some occasions, this is caused by a clogged fuel filter. Replace this part first, and if you are one of the "Fortunate Few", your Kia will be fine after you change it. This is the cheapest fix, so try it first and see what happens. A fuel filter will run under 20 bucks in most cases.
If you DO need to change the fuel pump, make sure you buy a decent one, and not a super-cheap ($17-25) one online, because it will probably **** out on you after about 1000 miles. Look around the 80 dollar mark. To have a mechanic do the job, always get an estimate first. You are probably looking at between $175-200 to have a new fuel pump installed.
