While driving car went dead now engine will turn over but will not crank
I drove the car home on highway some 50 miles by sticking the plug in the hole. it came out 4 times. I need to drive it again. Is it going to hurt it driving it another 12 miles?
The dashboard lights go dim when I use any extra power, radio, heat, electric windows, and so forth. Then there is a high pitch sound like grinding or squealing. Then the car will start losing power.the more often I have the alternator replaced, it seems they are not lasting very long at all, anywhere from 5 months to now this last one about 3 weeks. I was told by my mechanic that the computer needs to be reset and updated, have you heard this may be the problem? I have not had the computer done yet. Please help.

Hello, So I have a 2007 Kia Spectra with 145,500 miles on it and my check engine light will go on and then off a few times a month. I went to several places and did a test for the check engine light and it came up with 6 codes. P0700 = Transmission Control System Malfunction. P0743 = Torque converter clutch circuit electrical. P0750 = Shift Solenoid A P0755 = Shift Solenoid B P0760 = Shift Solenoid C P0765 = Shift Solenoid D The check engine light off again, but the codes above are the only codes that will come up. Kia said I need a new tranny, but when I took it to a tranny shop they said its electoral. The tranny will downshift once or twice a week. When this happen the engine light will come on. The car will accelerate slowly and would not shift. I will turn the car off and 2 mins later I will turn it on and it will drive normal
