Anyone know what this is for? I was doing a quick fluid check and I noticed this on the intake. Im a little worried I’m missing a part, but it would be nice if it was just a thread left for aftermarket purposes. This is on my 2017 Optima LX 1.6TAny insight on it would help!

yes sure looks like something is supposed to be bolted on right there. Does not look like a port there but something is mounted there. What mods has the engine seen? Maybe someone with that exact year/model can weigh in and take a photo.

I would redo your thread label:

"Is MY 2017 Optima LX 1.6 Missing a part on engine?"
Thank you. Sorry it took so long to get back, but I’ll update the thread label and take a look at Kia’s parts website to see if I’m missing anything

2019, same. You’re not missing anything

Thank you so much. I was honestly worried I was missing something. Might just be a crossover part with another engine in another vehicle that uses those threads
