1. I bought a 2008 kia Optima LX 2.7L V6 three weeks ago, with 36,544 miles on it. The second day I Had the car I Noticed a Slight Ticking coming from the engine compartment. I opened the hood and it seemed to come from the passanger side by the pully. I have had three mechanics look at it encluding the dealer I bought it from. They all stated that it was the fuel injectors closing and opening releasing gas?? I have never heard this you?? And is it possible? Any suggestions?.
2. Mostly In the morning on take off my kia will buck shifting from second to third. An Abrupt early upshift is the best way to descride it any ideas??
I have a automatic car started in it, and sometimes when i start the car, it makes a belt scratching noise. From time to time, while driving. it'll make a scratching belt noise, and its like the more I accelerate the louder it becomes. I don't know if its the tensions, the pully idle or the alternator belt. How do you know if the alternator belt is going bad. How would the threads look like. when i look at it, it seems to be look okay. it dont have much crack in it, nor shows any teeth marks on the sides. But in doing so, if i was to change the the alternator belt, is it necessary to change the tension all at once. i was just curious. && where can i find a repair book that doesn't cost an arm and leg.
I've bought a 2005 Kia Optima last April, it is 1.8L, the car is great, but I started to notice that this engine is strange!! I cannot find information about it, I cannot find some spare parts for it, I took it to the Official Dealer and opened a file for it since it is not a local import(Jordan/ME) it is Korean Import.. I started to think that it is made as custom made for a certain company, because it was used along with about 30 car like it in Korea with some project, they were for project managers as I was told, the shop owner told me he imported about 10 cars of them. Its options are another reason of the custom made; I have 1 airbag only!! I have auto head lights but no drawer lock!! I have a rear glass built-in antenna, but no stop light!!! I have heated front seats but not leather!!
Any one can tell about this??

I have had my car into the dealership shop several times. This trip they have had it over a month. My car will just shut off when sitting still. It also cuts off while driving. The dealership says they can not recreate the problem and yet the last time I tried to take it off the lot it stalled at their stop sign. Any suggestions? They think it might be the cranck shaft sensor, but they just put a used engine in it after the timing belt went.
when i stop at a red light and try too take off again it seems too lose power not reach speed takes awhile to get it go at a normal speed. And sometimes it seems too get stuck in 3rpms and i have to let off the gas to get it back down from 3rpms.
