I also have a VK with the same problem. After many hours spent checking and replacing parts including the distributor I have come to the conclusion that it may well be the black box computer. This is found inside the firewall on the passenger side of the car. Not sure on how much it is to replace but I may well cut my losses as I have spent a lot of money already.

i'am no expert or anything like that but since i got a vk about a year ago i have leant a lot about the engine. i think that you are right, my vk has a black motor and i'am not sure if the operation is exactly the same but in the black motor that little box/computer reads the signals from the crank angle sensor (a small little thing bolted at the back of the engine and goes into the top of the bell housing) if you try to remove the crank angle sensor from the engine it will not even start because the distributor in the black motor is not operated the same way as normal distributors (it has no vacum lines attacted to it like normal) it is very simple in design and i think that the box/computer controls the operation of the distributor

A VK Commondore? What the heck is that?

assumeing its a 4cyl the fireing order is 1-3-4-2 going when you take off the dizzy cap there should be a notch on the outer edge this would indicate cyl1 rotate the engine to see which way the arm rotates the from that notch point afix the HT leads in the order of 1-3-4-2 and that should do it if it a v6 it will be 1-5-3-4-2-6 and for v8 1-5-3-4-2-8-6

Depends on what you did before the car stopped working. Could be a bad ecu could be the optical encoder in the distributor maybe a bad fuse. Make sure all engine harnesses are plugged in, make sure you see the check engine light when you turn the key to ON and check the inside of the distributor for cleanliness.

Why does one cylinder missfires on your Kia Optima 2002?

It is probably an ignition problem. Check the mis-firing cylinder's ignition cable from the distributor to the spark plug. A quick check would be to replace the ignition cable on the mis-firing cylinder with one from a firing cylinder. That can rule out the cable. You could have also have a broken or fouled plug. or a bad distributor cap. Carbon tracks inside or on the outside of the cap can allow the spark to jump to ground. If it isn't that, then you have a collapsed lifter or something more expensive.

It could be either the crank angle sensor or the distributor module. If it is the distributor module, you have to buy and install a re-man distributor.
