Having problems with your 2004 Kia Optima ?
Kia Losing Oil
\015 I have a 04 Kia Optima with 103k miles. I just had a tuneup on it and valve cover gasket replaced. I know the mechanic did a fantastic job, but the car is still losing oil, I see it near the gasket on the right side, but it never drips to the ground. Every month I have to add 2 qts of oil because the dipstick is dry. Also when I start up my car when it's cold, it has a bad smell but no smoke and the smell goes away after it warms up. It also idles low and vibrates while in idle (at stop signs, etc). Can somebody help?\015
