A flashing oil light usally means low oil pressure. If the oil pressure drops below a set point the light will contiune to flash even if the pressure rises back up to normal until you resart the car. Start simple and check the oil. If low then add. Keep an eye on it, if your losing it, its going somewhere, exhaust, or out a seal or if you went to jiffy lube, probably out of the oil filter due to it not being tightened. If oil is ok, your oil pump may be bad. That job is a little complex.

2006 Kia Optima oil light flashes sometimes when Ideling. Don't know what to do.

When the oil lamp lights, it means that your oil pump is not giving the right pressure or it is not working, If it only happens during idling, it indicates that the pump is about to wear and needs servicing, If its intermittent, it may just be a loose wire connection to the sender or a defective sending unit. Try to replace first the oil pressure sending unit.

You could wait or try changing the oil. Atleast check the oil to see if its at the right level. Also it may be your oil pump needing to be changed.

Where is the OIL FILTER for the 2004 Kia Optima?

For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire. I hope this helps.
