  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    The other day I changed my cabin filter. It started getting hot here in Texas so I turned my temperature all the way down and the AC on. When the dial is at 3, I get no noise, but once I hit that 4 it sounds like something is out of place. I rechecked the filter to make sure it was installed...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I`ve got a 2012 optima that had an oil filter access cover. After I took it to the dealer for the engine recall that cover went missing. I`ve looked through the Kia parts catalogs and can`t find anything listed. do you suppose that this was something that someone made or is it a part that they...

    I was hoping to find a CAI for my 2016 SXL with the 2.0T engine and havin a gard time finding one. Airaid doesn't appear to make one. Auto Zone & Advance Auto doesn't have a reference for one on a 2016 2.0T even though the K&N website shows a model 33-5057 when I do a vehicle search for my car...

    Hi all. I know we should be using OEM filters, but they are kind of a PITA to get a hold of. I've been using Mobil 1 full syn with M1 filters and I've got this noise that sounds like extra firewall slapping the exhaust manifold. It occurs between 1 and 2k RPMs Anyone know if this is the type...
  5. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    HI...thanks for the help in the past and looks like I still need some help. 2016 SXL and when changing oil, I do use the OEM Kia filter without question. I live about 2 hours away from the nearest dealer and either through them or other Kia dealers that are on the net, to get the OEM engine and...

    Hi everyone, I went to local autozone and other auto stores nearby my house and there is nothing on getting an air filter and cabin air filter for my 2016 Kia Optima Lx-T. I don't want to go to my local Kia shop just to purchase a $50 air filter. Might as well get a K&N Air filter for that...
  7. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    My 16 SXL Cabin Filter shows Part # - 97133-C1010 (F178LFDBA) to its right -- and the Engine Filter Part # is TBD. EDIT: 4/28/17: The Box from Dealer Parts shows # D5C79AC000, which has multi-Google results, too, and is the # I'm sure Parts Dept uses. Surprised at $30 + tax at Dealer BUT...

    I have a 2017 Kia Optima FE with the 2.4 L engine... there seems to be a problem using the 2016 or earlier OEM oil filters with the 2017 engine. Apparently, the part numbers 26300-35503 and 26300-35504 are not compatible with the 2017 engine?? Does anyone know the right OEM part number for...
  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So I ordered the one from Amazon they said was correct and it did not fit (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CT2YDLE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). So I searched for the part number on the stock air filter (28113-C1500) and it found this on Amazon...

    Everyone, please call me the biggest idiot on this forum and hate me. I just drove about 2-3k miles without an air filter. Why? Because when I installed my cold air intake on my 2.4, I didn't secure the air filter on tightly enough, thus it had been sitting on the bottom of my vehicle that...

    OK quick question. My 2015 LX now has 3,000 miles on it and I want to change the oil and go to Mobil 1 or Castrol synthetic. I need to know which OEM oil filter is the correct one for my car. It was my initial impression that P/N 26300 35503 was the correct filter (saw that listed here and on a...

  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    With the 2016 Optima (outside the US) coming with a "clean air" system, these vehicles usually have a different cabin air filter than the standard ones in our cars. I'm wondering if anyone has located one of those designed to fit our cars (2011-2015), have tried it and are willing to share some...

  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had to ask the oil change technician to repeat himself twice when he told me the price of the cabin filter. $79.00!!! That's insane!! he took the old one out and it was filthy with leaf debris and dirt, but at that price I told him to put it back in. The thing is a cheap piece of...

    Okay so don't kill me if this is posted elsewhere. I've scoured the threads and only saw nothing against synthetic oil(obviously) But I could not find information on oil filter besides for using the OEM Kia oil filter. I would like to start doing it myself, and also switch to synthetic. I see...

    2.4L Oil Filter Socket Wrench Size-80MM? I took a measurement of one of the replacement oil filters I have and it looked to be 80mm in diameter. Oil filter part # is 26300-35503. Can anyone verify this? ***EDIT*** Looks like it is a 80MM sized socket wrench.
