Kia Spectra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
When my car cold cranks, it has trouble idling low, it sputters until it dies unless I two-foot the gas and brake. Usually, after it warms up, I have no more problems out of it. But lately, it still dies at the occasional stop and is becoming more frequent.
just bought the car and it seems to have no power (wouldnt even drive up the ramps onto my car trailer) and only gets to about 15mph then wont go faster like maybe it isnt shifting into the next gear. would that be the whole transmission or would that be a sensor or something? i have no knowledge of Kia's.
My kia sputters when I shift gears. Has cut off a few times, starts up and goes on down the road. Starts to sputter again. Replace plugs,valve cover,alternator and battery. Also there is a faint smell of burnt oil or gas when sputtering happens.
CAR worked fine yesterday. No indications of any problems. Went to go start it, Turned the igintion on all ligihts came on usual effects of dashlights, but no crank,
Broken any ideas on why it's not getting fire
Is there a spring that goes in the oil pan? If so what is it for?

It just quit starting do that is when I put a starter
In last 3 years Iv had to get my clutch replaced 5times , clutch pedal gets stiff and then it starts having acceleration problems and high rpms I can shift into any gear no problem. Last 2 times I put a clutch in it only lasted a month then it seemed it burnt out .. I'm a frequent driver
It never fails to crank back up. I make a 30 minjte drive to work and it cuts off twice before i can make it to work.
Also the brake lights were staying on so we put a pad on the pedal to stop that before the brakes started dtivking.
I took out the old battery and the and the nut on positive cable was so corroded.When I was trying to get the nut off it snapped off leaving the nut still stuck.How do loosen the nut?
Had two new alternators burn
I have an 04 KIA spectra. Once in a while I will be driving around and my foot will be on the gas pedal, then all the sudden my car starts slowing down, even though I still have foot on the gas. Then it just slowly speeds back up again and is fine. Not sure what to do. It doesn't do it everyday, just once in a while. Also, when I put gas in my car, my car doesn't always want to turn over, if I don't put my foot on the gas a little when turning it on, it just shuts off right away. This happens almost everytime. I don't know if these things are connected somehow, but I thought I would share and see if anyone might know what's going on.
changed the mini fuse still not working. what could it be?
lately When i put gas in the tank when taking off the cap, it makes like a shallow noise, like if vapors will come out, then you will have to pump it before I can get it started again
All power things work except my headlights 3/4 tank of gas
Car would at first cut off when slowing down or coming to a stop now I can't get car to turn over what could be the problem
