need to move car how can i get it started? dont care if it damages anything !!
I changed my thermostat recently and then the upper radiator hose. Then the lower one. After changing the lower hose the car overheated and check engine light came on. 7 codes 121,442,734,733,171,325,441, came up. Help!
yesterday 3/20/2017 my dash lights for battery and brake came on and stayed on. Starting off from a stop position noticed the car wanted to hesitate. Going down the road it would not shift into high gear. All of these symptoms started only yesterday when the brake and battery came on. Would the alternator being bad cause all these problems?? Thanks for any help at all yall can give.

My car drives as long as my lights are not on. When my lights are on it went go into drive unless I keep turning the lights on and off.
the evap finally reset after 672 miles. I am at loss here! I did all of the drives cycles and I only need that one to reset so I can finally get it smogged.
Kia Spectra 2.0 starts easily when cold, but after driving for 15 minutes will have difficulty starting again. Starts well after cooling down again.
The car is going into gear but not pulling
Drove 14 miles home after dealer performed Xmission fluid change. Smelled burning on way home. No fluid registered on dipstick when got home. Dealer was called said bring car back. Drove 14 miles back to dealership. Since "corrected", whine has remained while driving. Was the 28 miles enough to create the problem? What should be checked? How large and expensive to understand if problem. Or cost to correct potential damage?
Vehicle was pristine when purchased, and cared for very carefully.
The alternator belt was already bad in it. Is there a restart button on the engine?
