Kia Spectra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I was going 45mph and came to a red light, I tried to stop but my brakes acted like they didnt want to work and my car started shaking and vibrating uncontrollably. I did get the car to stop with the peddle to the floor. Put it in park and the vibrating stopped. Went and got a complete tune up brake pads the works and it did it again. Except this time when I put it in park the engine shut off. I had to turn my caroff and restart it. The check engine light isnt on, and its not an everyday thing. It just randomly happens.
Check engine light codes are 420 and 455.Problem gets worse as car engine temp reaches normal.
To get into the car i have to hold the key in the unlock position and the pull the handle. When on the inside you have to hold it in the unlock position and then lift the handle while its still in the unlock position. You can here and see that every time you unlock it, it automatically clicks back into lock. This only happens from the driver side ; which controls all of the doors locks. Any help ; suggestions ?
After being parked for an extended period the rear driver's side wheel will not rotate.
My 2006 Kia Spectra is making a high pitched sound (almost like metal scrapping against metal) every time it is driven in reverse. Once it is put into drive it continues for a short bit (but at about 85-90% less intensity) and then stops. I just replaced all 4 brake pads less then a year ago. Any ideas what could be the cause?
MY passenger back side door closed one day and now won't open. We have tried locking and unlocking and pushing on it. Can NOT get it to open any more.
Dealerships REFUSE to fix it. Auto repairs want a fortune to take door off and 'see' if it's fixable.
My check engine lights keeps turning on and then off every couple months. They said that it could be a bad sensor, the one that measure temperature for the transmission. They told me that I had to replace all of them, because they sold them in a set and that it would cost me about 400. Is that right? and do I really have to replace all of them. What would happen if I didn't. I don't know much about cars at all and need some help!!!
The is locked shut how do I get it open to get the door panel off
KIA dealer wants $1160 to replace; I said part must be defective and he said call KIA customer service, which I did and they said "things happen". I am furious because
compressors are suppossed to last a long time; like 80000
or so miles.
Was driving 2008 Spectra5 (79k miles) when car stalled, lost power, electric, brakes, everything. Check engine light came on. I pulled to side and restarted. Now everything is fine. Mechanic checked computer, but no codes registered. What is this?
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??
