Just had the emissions checked while registering my car 2 weeks ago and no problems... I have noticed that for quite awhile the (manual trans.)engine stays rev'ed between low gears when I'm shifting - not sure if that has any bearing... Thanks for any help!
CEL has come on after 64k m. NOT the gas-cap - is this typical with this model? on 2009 Kia Spectra

What are the trouble codes? There's a reason why the CEL comes on.
Thanks for your response - see mine down below...

not uncommon at all for any vehicle. its telling you there is something going wrong. scan codes and post so we can adv
Going to Autozone to get the code(s) and they will tell me what's up (obviously emission control system/sensor). I was just curious if this was a typical issue for this make and model at this mileage - seems pretty low mileage for this to happen but I'm not an expert. Thank you, two, for your quick responses - will be getting back to you if and when I have to do the repair/replacement myself. Last time I had an NOC sensor go out (on an Altima) they wanted $800 to replace and that's not happening...
