Go to rockauto.Com and look up your vehicle and then the part in a/c and heating so you know what to look for then follow your heater hoses it should be between the firewall where the heater core is and the water pump or thermostat housing

If your coolant isn't low, it could be a stuck thermostat or a plugged heater core

You mean it doesn't start or doesn't turn 360 degrees. If it doesn't turn, check timing. If it does turn but doesn't start, check fuel, spark, compression and timing. You may also have a bad crankshaft sensor.

Hi,
It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.
  • Try to check your fuel filter.
  • The seive on the fuel pump.
  • The fuel injectors might be dirty.
  • The air cleaner might be clogged
or the fuel sensor might be malfunctioning.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.

The most likely cause of this is a blown head gasket.

Well I had this issue and the only way these can be replaced is by a machine shop who will pack new barrings with a high pressure machine. The practical thing to do is to get a whole new hub assembly(the metal assembly by the brakes) from a salvage yard or online since this may very well be cheaper. The tool to replace the hub can be rented at Auto zone.

I have had this more frequently as of late with the age of the vehicle. The internal wiring harness of the transmission usually goes bad causing this concern when it gets hot it causes it to throw it in limp home mode. Which reverts to 3rd gear.

Hi, there are 3 fuses the the alternator needs to charge the battery. These may be inside the car or in a box in the engine compartment. They are named IG1, ECU, and ALT. If you have trouble finding them, please get back to me.

Test voltage at the large bolt inside the underhood fuse box. Also check the large alternator fuse.

hello,
Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent shock when handling the door components. Loosen the cable's nut with the pliers and slide it away. Pop off the side-view mirror interior panel with the tweeter on it. Use the door panel trim tool or a flat-bladed tool, such as a putty knife, wrapped in masking tape. Once the panel is off, unplug the speaker connection from behind it. Push the connector's tab in with a flat head screwdriver and pull the connector away. Open the door fully to expose the screw cover on the front part of the door panel. Pry out the screw cover with a flat head screwdriver. Pry out the small centerpiece; not the ring surrounding it. Behind the cover, you'll find a Phillips screw; remove it.
Open the screw cover flap behind the inside door handle. Insert the tip of a flat head screwdriver into the upper-slot; push down to open the flap. Remove the Phillips screw from behind the flap. Pull off the plastic door handle surround piece. Insert the door trim tool behind the panel; pull it back to pull the panel off. Slide the surround piece away from the door panel.
Remove the circular screw cover from the inside door pull storage compartment. Pry it up with the flat head screwdriver. Remove the Phillips screw behind the cover. Remove the screw cover from the rear-edge of the door panel. This cover is similar to the one on the front part of the door panel; pry out the center part, not the ring surrounding it. Remove the Phillips screw behind it.
Remove the two Phillips screws visible along the bottom part of the door panel.
Pry around the perimeter of the door panel with the door trim tool. Pull the tool handle back to pop the door panel clips out. Do this for each side, except for the top. Once the clips are unhooked, the panel is ready for removal.
Gently pull the door panel away from the Optima's door, but only enough to access the area behind it. The connections for the power equipment must be unplugged. Reach around and depress the connection tabs with the tip of the flat head screwdriver; unplug the connection. There are three connections to unplug. Once they are unplugged, pull the door panel away.

Thanks
