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?

My car was running fine and then going up a hill my clutch burned out which I had towed to the shop and I had a warranty so they replaced the flywheel put a new clutch pack in and airfilter . Few days later I get it back and 5 hours later at a buddy's leaving g his house all of a sudden i started having power loss and the battery light and brake light stayed on. The Battery is only a few months old.. Is it the end for my alternator and how long till my car no longer will start?
When you hit a bump, passenger gets in and closes the door...heater or a/c goes off
The batteries are fine, the diagnostic shows no problems. When I turn the key, the pump gets activated, the check lights go on, the ignition starts, but no sparking to get the engine going. Have not driven it for 3 weeks. Nothing was wrong before. What to do?
I have a 2004 Kia Spectra that needs a head gasket replacement. It's my first car (used) and I'm confused on what to do. Any advice is appreciated. I had the alternator drive belts replaced, then the head gasket problem came into place.
