Kia Spectra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Also would like to know how much cost would be to repair.
When all the doors are closed my door open light in dashboard comes on and blinks and sometimes stays on and sometimes when I arrive home and close the doors the light stays on and I'm afraid my battery will go dead. I wouldn't mind taking the fuse out but possibly that fuse does other things on the dash too. Any fixes possible would be appreciated.
I cut the cables from the parking brake but only one tire freed and now it wont shift out of park and the brake pedal goes right to the floor I knw i did not cut the main brakeline any ideas
I don't know what else to do, can't see inside the car at night very agitated about this. Went quirk kia and they said hr rate is $100 when I asked about my dome light. thank you whoever answer's
We have checked all belts, hoses, fluids. just had to replace AC condenser had vacuumed and recharged. Worked for day and had to change fuse. ran fine now 2 weeks in, AC slugs a car down yes but im going 50 mph on smooth road and car starts jerking very slight but can feel in gas pedal and driving. almost like it would feel running out of gas. no check light random brake light flash but I don't think related. had to change TBS twice in 3 years seems one bolt loosens and check light comes on. this has not happened though. If not 100%sure atleast give me somethings we could check. thanks
I have taken it to severl garages and they all say they can not do it since they do not have the infusion needle for the grease gun. So I bought a needle and greas gun but don't know how to get the grease in, where the fitting are, or even what they look like.
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!
Is this a big job or can it be a DIY job. The car seems to almost stall at times then starts to run well again in a moment.Plugs have been changed and fuel cleaner added to gas
I plan on replacing the part myself and am wondering if I have to take the bumper off?

It will come on when I hit a bump, then stay on for days until it goes out again. Then all I do is hit a bump and back on it comes.
What does a tune up on a car consist of?
It mainly happens when I slow down or stop n go or sometime when I pick up speed
Wiring was supposedly wrong and fixed, but it seems when I use the alarm I have to kick the floorboard or dash console to make the A/C cut on. I typically try not to use it and it does do it some other times, but more frequently when you use the alarm. The lights are on and you can hear the motor turn on, as it is very loud. As soon as you kick/hit the right spot it comes on like there was never a problem?!? I don't know if there is a loose connection behind the dash or if it is worth trying to fix...very annoying
The items i have changes this far are as follows:
plugs gaped .028-.032
4 fuel injectors
Crank Shaft Sensor
Timing belt and bearings
I not only have changed all of this I have searched diligently for vacuum leaks, and or broken wires, etc I am at a complete loss and running out of money. If anyone can give me some good advise it would be grateful.
ive changed coils,mass air flow, air idle, fuel filter, valve cover gasket, spark plugs, wires, i removed the top cover to see the timing belt, looked ok and cam timing marks were lined up. when idleing i have removed wires to injectors one at a time and you can here it start missing on that cyl. any ideas?
Rattaling noise in front left. Clicking during breaking
my mechanic said there are 3 solenoids in the tranny but is not sure if they are easily accessible, eg from the fluid pan , or does the whole thing have to be dropped and opened up. he said he will change all 3 so there wont be a chance of changing the wrong one or if there is more than 1 problem. he wants to know the location of the solenoids. appreciate your help.
it's jerking occasionally. can the solenoid be fixed without taking the transmission out completely
I need to replace the struts on my car and found some gas struts online and was wondering if they were any good or not worth the extra money.
Brakes don't squeak. Could it possibly be a tire problem?
When I push the button for rear wiper, the engine connects and it trys to move but no success. If the threads are stripped do I need to replace the whole engine?
How do can I make the code P1404 turn off?
I have new spark plugs, new alternator, and new battery terminals. The car ran fine for about 10 min after new alternator was put in. while driving it the windshield wipers started moving slowly then all power was off. car then shut off. I need help Im at the end of my rope with the car. It has 175,000 miles on it. this is the first time in 5 years since i owned the car that any major issues have occurred.
does the fueltank just need to be lowered to access carbon canister assembly with the fuel vapor valve?
Injectors in # 3 & 4 cylinders will not close enough or entirely when the engine is idling, floods engine and kills. Bigger problem when the vehicle is just starting, cold, driving at low speed, at a stop sign. Longer driving time and distance correct the problem for a while. Injectors have been cleaned, wiring checked, replaced: mass air flow sensor, throttle position sensor, gas pump, gas filter and cleaned out the gas tank. Not a mechanical issue, not wiring, not modules.
My car has about 22,700 miles on it and it has not had the power steering fluid changes so far.
i can only drive a automatic so can i drive this car
what should I ckeck to solve this problem?
