Default 2002 Kia Optima Repair manual?

Looked everywhere on the net for a repair manual, ie Chilton or Haynes, for 2002 Kia Optima 2.4 4cyl. Been told they dont make one. Any idea on where to get one? Trying to figure out timing marks as we just replaced the crankshaft sensor and new (timing) belts but still wont turn over and we think the timing is way out of whack but arent sure how to adjust it. Any thought?

Optima engine is identical to Hyundai Sonata. Have you looked on the Kia Global Tech site?

Go to KIA and buy the KIA service manual. It is what the mechanics use in their shop. We bought one for the wife's 03 Optima for $85.00. It paid for itself when I did the plugs, timing belt, and water pump. I plan on getting one for my 09 Borrego. Most shop's are at least $75.00 an hour labor. Hope this helps.

I think that in looking for the auto repair manuals for the Optima, you should check first their site if they have it available. Also, try to really give some good things in that one by searching local shops or try to search in to other areas here. In that way, you would be able to really find that desired manual.

I had the same problem for the same vehicle, I went to alldatadiy.com and purchased an online manual for about $26/year. Its not a complete manual, but it has everything you need to replace a timing belt, and it shows where all the timing marks are.
