Question about 2004 Kia Optima
You may want to check your crankshaft pully to make sure it does not slip. we were having the same problem with our 2004 kia and the crankshaft pully had lost its pins. so it was just spinning on the crankshaft bolt. its the center pully, the one comeing driectly out of the motor. we found this by opening the hood and turning on the a/c. the drag from the belts turning the a/c on. made the belts squeel slightly and you will see the pully slip under the load of turning on the a/c this takes 2 people. you want to start the car with the hood up a/c off and while the second person watches the center belts and pully have the driver turn on the a/c if the belts squeel or the center pully slipps thats your problem.. also if you have any problem with power steering, lights going out or dimming, battery going low or any function light coming on inside. thats an indicator of this also.. i hope this helps you...
