05 Kia Optima 2.4l. I've replaced the coils plugs wires timing belt and balance belts the cam and crank sensor with the timing plate. It ran good for 4 months. Then after I replaced the alternator it would run fine for days and then it would misfire and sound as if it was out of time with engine rattling and knocking. But it would not set a check engine light. The exhaust would smell horrible as if the engine was loading up with fuel. But if I would let it set for a day or two. It would fire right up and run great. Any ideas? I've used a scan tool and cannot find any problems.
