2001 Kia Optima Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2001 Kia Optima

Your Optima drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Kia, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Optima’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2001 Kia Optima to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Kia's recommendations.
