Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
This message is for George H. Kia expert.
Hello, George: I hope this message finds you in good health. I would like to know what the normal operating temperature is for the 2004 Kia Optima 2.4 manual transmission. Where exactly should the temperature gauge needle be in the instrument panel? Also, if I needed to flush the cooling system, where are the engine plugs that I need to unplug when flushing the cooling system? E. Jim.
Thank you for the fast response. In that case, the Kia is just doing great. The temperature gauge is where it is supposed to be and by the way... the timing belt job so far is working excellent. Thank you, George.
