  1. Engine and Technical Discussion
    NEVERMIND i got my questions answered.... Hey everyone, So my car is leaking fuel in the engine bay. Took my car in to the dealer and the guy that was helping me didn't seem very intelligent in what he was talking about. First he gave me an update saying that it was my low pressure fuel line...
  2. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Just got my Safety Recall notice (#18V907) in the mail concerning the High Pressure Fuel Pump (HPFP) fuel pipe that has been suspected of causing engine fires on cars who have had the engine replaced (via #17V224) due to being "damage, misaligned or improperly torqued during the engine...

    My '12 Optima SX turbo oil feed line started leaking under the foil where the flex portion is. Hard to tell where it's coming from as the entire bottom of the passenger engine bay is covered in oil, but pretty sure that's what it is as squeezing the foil portion yields oil. It's leaking right on...
  4. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Surely it's coincidence and not the cause but sometime around my recent (2) SA's & ECU I noticed my Lane Encroachment Warning Beep doesn't work. It used to require a Turn Signal to prevent it but I can run over White -Yellow lines all day without a sound. Is your feature still working and Is...

    Not liking them. My original idea was to plasti dip the trim pieces. Wish the stripes were level. Reverse them to see in black. Here's my wheel I had on my Sonata. Waiting for set of TPMS before I can install.
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My car is just over 3 years old and the car sat for 4 days and then tried to start it and the battery was dead. Was able to jump the car and after I turned it off and then restarted it the display showed a green horizontal line across the lcd screen. I thought that was odd so I turned the car...

    Two days ago, I was 1000mi away from changing my oil when I noticed the oil light flicker on my car. I had noticed a stronger smell of oil as well which prompted me to have a look at the oil. Usually I'm good until the next oil change and haven't had to check the oil because of the short...
  9. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Has anyone tried a line lock on our cars for launching and or a switch to bypass the brake switch? If we trick the car into thinking it's not on the brake we can try to work around launch control beside a tune. Something like the hurst line lock kit summit racing sells? I bought my 13 optima...

  15. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I just purchased my Optima a few weeks ago, and the first mod had to be the HID upgrade. I've done these on 4 previous vehicles over the years, so it's nothing all that new to me. After installing, I checked my cutoff on the garage, and it appears to round up on both sides, not the nice straight...

    Quick question for you guys that have the 20mm garage line spacers. I want that flushed look but I really don't want to be concerned with the possibility of rocks chipping the eff out of the side of my car. I have oem mudguards but from pics I've seen here on the forum, they appear to...

    So I was cleaning my car, and noticed how the door fender dont really line up with the rocker panel.. Is this normal? does the rocker panel stick out a bit more than the door and the fender? The only part that lines up well is the part of the fender meets the mud guards
