The video above shows you how to add oil to your 2004 Kia Optima. Before adding oil to your Optima, make sure that your engine was cold and that your car was parked on a level surface when you checked the oil level otherwise you won't be able to tell if your Optima has a low oil level. For most Kias, if your oil level is at the minimum mark on your dipstick, you should add about a quart of oil. If you are unsure how much oil to add to your Optima, add a little bit at a time and check your dipstick frequently. This video shows you where the oil fill cap is located on your Optima and how to add oil. Adding too much oil to your Optima can be harmful, so it is easiest to add a little at a time.
