WILL NOT START

2004 Kia Optima

Engine Performance problem
2004 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103000 miles

My 2004 Kia Optima will not start. One night while I was driving home it died out on me. When I try to start the car, it turns but will not catch. I had the fuel pump changed and that was not the problem. I also changed all the fuses. Can you please help me or offer a suggestion?

Hi Tonya768,

Should be something to do with the ignition electricals if it is not the fuel.

Check for current supply to the ignition coils and spark plugs.

At the mileage shown, have the timing belts been replaced before? If the cranking is very fast like not much compression, then the belt might have snapped.
