KIA MAGENTIS II Optima front end clunking noise

Any Optima owners have issues with clunking noises in the front end Usually can be heard driving 20-40 mph over a bumpy road. A definitive clunking noise on both sides almost sounds like metal on metal. Ive been chasing down the noise in an 07 LX with 70k miles but coming up empty so far. The 2006.5 supposedly had issues with the front struts & mounts being a source of some noise and kia has updated

KIA MAGENTIS II G3 annoying front suspension noise

On certain types of bumps the front end seems to not be able to handle the rebound dampening of the struts. This is purely speculative on my part because I am in no way an expert. But it is the only thing I dont like about my 2006.5 EX v-6 Optima. My first Optima (2006.5 EX 4cyl) made the same exact noise. My friend has a 2006.5 LX v-6 that also does the same thing. Has anybody else noticed this

PISTA The car is completely standard as we buy it here in Australia. The only mods to the car are the suspension and tints. The weather does vary in in Australia but we enjoy it. From memory that day was around 32C. Answering mikefoist with the suspension issue my wife drives a 2006 kia Cerato hatch which I also had lowered by 1.5. This runs standard shock absorbers and drives nicely. The springs I

KIA MAGENTIS I GD front brake rotors

Ive searched this forum for brake rotors and did not find an answer to my question. Im in the middle of a complete brake job including rotors and the front ones I bought from Advance Auto dont exactly match up to my old ones. Everything matches fine except the two countersunk holes for the small screws that hold the rotor in place on the hub. i double checked with Advance and that is all they offer

KIA MAGENTIS Creaking from the front of the car

Lately I have noticed that when I stop and then release the brake I get a creaking noise from the front. If I power brake you can hear it. Meaning that if I am stopped and put my left foot on the brake and hit the gas you can hear it creaking. Any ideas. Thanks

There is very similar creaking noise problem on the Hyundai Sonata forum. MANY cars had it. Has to do with several layers of metal coming together near right front lower rockerwheelwell area. There IS a fixgo to Hyundai-Forums to peruse. May be something completely differentbuthad to mention this.

KIA MAGENTIS II Stiff 5-spd manual shifter and clutch in hot weather

Its been really hot and humid here in north Georgia the past couple of weeks. Ive noticed that my Optimas clutch and shifter have been feeling very stiff lately. I almost cant get the shift into gear sometimes and it takes 2 or 3 tries before itll cooperate with me. Is it related to the hot temp somehow Or maybe I just need to change the trans fluid It is due. Anyone out there in kia land have this

KIA MAGENTIS I GD Blown Head Gasket 2004 Optima EX 2.4

I am about to lose my mind with this car Its a 2004 kia Optima EX 2.4 I just installed a 2005 motor and trans in this car after learning the original motor was bad - we bought the car in 2006 with 15k miles on it and it NEVER ran right at all.

KIA MAGENTIS I GD Replacement of Spark PlugsWireset 2001 Kia Optima 2.5L V6

Hi I came here a few weeks ago to see if there was some information about changing the spark plugs and wireset on a 2001 kia Optima 2.5L V6 but unfortunately nothing was too detailed and the KGIS site wasnt too information or specific though it did explain what to remove to get to the wires and plugs. So I decided to join to hopefully give a more detailed explanaition on what needs to be removed in

KIA MAGENTIS II Questions for any 2.7L V6 Optima owners out there....

Gang Ive got a line on a beautiful brand-new 08 Optima EX that has the 2.7L V6 in it. I suspect that I could get a great deal on it but Ive got one major concern with this particular specimen. It has the 2.7L V6. This engine is the only thing that I wish was different about the car since the economy is going to be less than the I4 and it requires a timing belt change at 60K miles. But.... after doing

KIA MAGENTIS I GD 04 Kia Optimss hold up great in accidents

I just thought I would let everyone know how well kias hold up in accidents. It seems like we have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. My Optima has been rearended 4 times in less than 2 years. Each time we were at a complete stop when we got hit so we felt it pretty good. Once was on the freeway this past July 1st 2009 and the other car didnt quite stop quick enough and hit us going about

KIA MAGENTIS II 2009 Optima LX - TPMS seizure

I purchased a 2009 kia Optima LX last year (used with 46k on it at the time) and within the first week I found I picked up a screw in a tire. Ended up having the whole tire replaced by Gateway Tire here in Nashville. They noted at that point that my valve stem was seized and would likely require the entire replacement of the TPMS and that this was very common among kias. They just re-used the old stem.

KIA MAGENTIS II Fixed dash rattle noise

I bought a brand new kia 2007 optima LX in Feb. 2008. From 3 months ago I had been heard annoying dash rattles on rough roads in my neighborhood and rough freeways.

KIA MAGENTIS My Optima SX Experience

Okay after owning my SX for a little while a few impressions. I sold my 2008 Infiniti M35X anticipating buying a new car. I loved the Infiniti but it was black and a total pain to keep clean. There are two truths about black cars... 1. There is nothing prettier than a clean black car and 2 there is no such thing as a clean black car. I cross-shopped a lot of cars to replace the Infiniti the new Infiniti

twisty hilly Hwy 1 in northern California (twistiest road I have ever driven in my decades of mountain driving) the paddles were a godsend to maintain a speed that my wife would tolerate while not shutting down my fun all while keeping my driving as smooth as possible since I could use the engine for speed control rather than jumping on or riding the brakes.

plug problem. NGK plugs to fit the G6EA engine are LRF5B-11 standard and ILRF5B-11 if your feeling unneccesarily wealthy and want to go for iridium.

The front three are easy but for the back three you need to remove the surge chamber ( Inlet manifold to you and me ). Although kia

KIA MAGENTIS II sway bar diameter size for 2006.5 optima

Hey everyone. I have the famous front end clunk and I believe I have it narrowed down to the sway bar bushings or something in the strut. I replaced the sway bar bushings and the banging went away but the noise is still there. I think its just that the bushings are too flexible and not supporting the bar like it needs to be (all the other Ive ever replaced have been super stiff). I cant find any answers

Check the control arm bushings the front ones that resemble hockey pucks and see if they are cracked or separating from the control arm. I havent seen any bad on the Optimas but it is the same style as the Sportages and Sedonas and they go bad frequently. The only warranty I have on it is just a powertrain I got from the dealer that I bought it from. I bought it used as the 3rd owner so the warranty didnt transfer. Thanks for the input on the bushings. Ill look into them. Quote Originally Posted by turbonut If you replaced the end links make certain they are tight and I mean tight.

Just check to make certain the bar wont contact anything when hanging down if so just tie it up. I ve been meaning to do that test. Just havent had time. I will definately check the tightness of them. Pretty sure theyre tight seeing how replacing them didnt make the noise go away. Heres a question if the link balljoint spins thats not a good sign is it The new ones I got from kia spun when I tried to put em on. Had a hell of a time getting them tight.

KIA MAGENTIS I GD 2004 kia optima timing question

Hello I have a 2004 kia optima ( 2.4 L 4 cylinder )that I am going to replace timing belt on how important is the timing marks for the oil pump sprocket will it do internal engine damage if oil pump sprocket timeing mark is off is there a way to check it if it is important

The oil pump is actually connected to the left (front) balancer shaft through a gear drive. This is a reduction drive and it is possible to align the marks and still have the balancer shaft out of time. The balancer shaft is only timed correctly every third revolution of the oil pump sprocket. This means that you can have all the timing marks correctly aligned (crank both cams rear balancer front balancer)

KIA MAGENTIS Who is waiting on the Hybrid

Im starting to lean towards the Optima Hybrid. Granted its a slower car combined MPG of 38 is a bigger plus to me than the turbo. From pictures it essentially looks like an SX inside and out and is about the same price. Granted another 3 months or more of waiting is in order. Anyone else leaning towards efficiency over power

A San Francisco dealer said he is expecting a white one and a silver one also within a week but cannot sell them until June 6th - that is when their training on the cars is supposed to be completed.

KIA MAGENTIS I GD Cold Air Intake

Has anyone bought a Cold Air Intake for a kia optima yet

A CAI will not affect your warranty unless the dealership is being complete jerks about it my dealer told me I can mod all I want and they would only void the part that was modded and not the entire warranty. Look up the Mag-Moss Act of 1975 and use that as your defense if your dealer is pulling the we will void your whole warranty card. The OEM intake is basically setup to where air comes in from

KIA MAGENTIS wheel stud

I have a 2011 kia Optima. When I was changing my wheels from the stocks to the after market wheels I have for the summer months one of the wheels studs broke off on the drivers side front wheel. I took car to a local garage and they said they had to take the whole hub assembly apart to replace it. i was just wondering if anyone has had to replace a stud on their optima and if so does the whole assembly need to be taken apart Or can you squeeze a new stud in some how. Thanks

I used to have this problem with a 2001 Toyota Tundra. Every time I rotated the tires I would break a stud on the right front (I even use a torque wrench). I am guessing that Toyota got a load of bad studs and did not catch it. Anyway you must remove the hub and get the old stud out. I always did the stud removeal hammer and punch. Once the old one is out you can lightly tap the new one in enough to
