actually you need to remove the rear left splash shield (black plastic lining inside the fender). You should see the part attached to the filler neck with a strap tie. You'll need to cut the strap tie, disconnect the electrical connector and remove the hose clamp holding the filter on to the vent hose. Install is the reverse of removal, just make sure to tightly strap the filter back to the filler tube or it'll rattle when you hit bumps. Good luck!

I have bad news for you
p0604 is a transmission control module
check the connection at the transmission control module if there are no connection issues than you will need to replace the transmission controll module "tcm" there is no other test for that code.

Testimonial: "Had conflicting info about location of it & was skeptical about doing it.Have 2 say it takes some skills 2 not break anything. Was successful, Thanks"
It is a regtangular shaped box located behind the glove box. You gently
remove the stoppers on both sides of the box and allow it to hang
freely on its hinges . Then you will see the filter assembly.
The filter elememt rests sideways within a frame that you slide out by gently pressing on the clips at either end. You install by reversing the procedure. That's it, enjoy your fresh air......
The dealer wants $48 for one here in South Florida , I've seen them for about $40. with the shipping on the net .
All Kia Optima's can be fitted with the cabin air filter. The blower housing is used in other Kia and Hyundai models as well. The manufacturer uses the filter as a selling point for their premium offerings. On the Optima they simply fail to install a filter in the housing. The removable cover is still there. If you search hard enough in eBay motors you will find them. I paid $12. + $8. shipping.
I recommend using the above instructions to get to the blower housing, then vacuum out the narrow area the filter slides into. Mine had accumulated leaves and tree bark from parking outdoors. The filter is effective at stopping debris from flying out of the vents.

the fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan located under the car. make sure you buy a transmission filter kit so you can change the filter and gasket. the trans fluid is added to the dipstick tube, where you have located the dipstick.
