Kia Spectra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my son's car sat for a bit and didnt have a gas cap on. After repair to wheel bearing my son went to start it and I told him to let it just idle for a bit to get oil flow back from sitting.
It started right up and ran for bout 4 minutes then sputtered and died. We discovered water in the tank from no cap and sat outside so drained the tank and changed fuel filter and put in fresh gas but now it wont start. It will fire with some starting fluid and there is plenty of pressure to the fuel rail. What should we check?
Cd player works great, but radio plays with volume low and static.Tore out the radio, and no visible issues, even antenna is not loose. No burnt fuse. What could this be.
replaced the sensor. We were told to disconnect the battery which we did. After we were done we reconnected the battery but the alarm kept going off. We got the alarm off with the remote but now the engine won't turn over. We can jump start the starter and it will start up but once turned off it won't start again. I'm really discusted cause my daughter has cancer and we need this car in working condition to get it emmissioned and inspected so I can take her to her appointments.
Took off center console to see if anything was disconnected, as well as antenna. I have had no radio for 3 years.
The emergency brake light check right by the speedometer recently just started to show up. Usually it goes off after i push the e-brakes down, but now its on constantly. The normal brakes are fine, and it looks like the brake fluid is fine. I'm not sure if someone added new brake fluid, or if its because i've been parking uphill lately?
The odometer lights and all the others (signal lights, warning light) still work, what could be the problem? Could I fix it by replacing the LEDs?
It doesn't blow at all. The lights come on but nothing comes out. It just stopped allof a sudden.
I was driving on i-5 when I noticed my exhaust was emitting smoke I checked for my lights and temp but all was fine and when I pulled over the car stopped. I checked my oil levels and my engine oil was empty completely. After a few hours I added two quarts of oil to my car and it failed to turn over. Any help on what could be the problem and the cost of the repair?
Lost power in for my fob, dome lights, radio, dash clock and TPMS system. Door locks only work with key on. No fuses blown. Problem occurred over night one day. Replaced the battery because I've heard of issues like this happening with a week battery. Any ideas??

My tail lights work and my pass. Side brake light comes on it's just my drivers side brake light I replaced the bulb and it still won't I'm tired of getting tickets please help?
The car idles rough below 2k rpms and has over 200k miles. There is a ticking noise and vibration that can be felt while holding the pcv valve. Going to replace the icv when part arrives.
I'm able to crank the Kia spectra up the next day.
my drivers side door will not open from the inside.
Problem is consistent and I've cleared codes
You must bump cord under dash on passenger side in order for it to come on or you hit a bump in the street. When it is on cools great same with the heat. Was doing this for a couple of months now today it want come on at all. It was like whatever that cord was it was loose.
NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NOW
The lights affected are the dash, heater and ash tray light. My drivers side tailight and marker light do not work either. I checked all the fuses and bulbs and they are all ok. Is this a short? How much do you think it would cost to get this repaired?
Good night, I have a doubt about the camshaft for my Kia, model: Spectra II 1.6L LS, year: 2002. The VIN of my car is KNAFB227225185766 and the damaged part has printed the following code K30E K1-2, and the number 421.
I need to buy the camshaft identified by "0K30E12420A CAMSHAFT ASSY-INT" but I don't understand what does the following codes mean: K1-1 K2-2 K3-2 K4-1 K5-2 K16-2 (none of which is the one my car originally had), and what is the difference between one camshaft with a K code (for example K1-1) or other (for example K4-1). If you'd please help me to understand that so I can buy the appropriate camshaft for my car.
Thanks in advance,
when it stalls it happens when stopped or going 70 at least for about 1/8 of a full tank and its getting worse. It happens most often with a fresh full tank of gas. Runs rough then stops then starts up fine again just to have it happen 2 to 5 mins later.
