My car was running fine and then going up a hill my clutch burned out which I had towed to the shop and I had a warranty so they replaced the flywheel put a new clutch pack in and airfilter . Few days later I get it back and 5 hours later at a buddy's leaving g his house all of a sudden i started having power loss and the battery light and brake light stayed on. The Battery is only a few months old.. Is it the end for my alternator and how long till my car no longer will start?

When you hit a bump, passenger gets in and closes the door...heater or a/c goes off

The batteries are fine, the diagnostic shows no problems. When I turn the key, the pump gets activated, the check lights go on, the ignition starts, but no sparking to get the engine going. Have not driven it for 3 weeks. Nothing was wrong before. What to do?

I have a 2004 Kia Spectra that needs a head gasket replacement. It's my first car (used) and I'm confused on what to do. Any advice is appreciated. I had the alternator drive belts replaced, then the head gasket problem came into place.

It was suggested to be probably an air bubble, but if so, it won't pass. Thermostat?

I cannot find where the canister close valve is on my 06 Kia Spectra?

I installed a timing belt, and it came off causing catastrophic damage to the valves(no excuse for interference engine Kia!) now I have replaced the valves and the timing belt, but it keeps moving off of the gears. Why?

I was replacing the stock stereo with an after market stereo. The stereo has a Yellow memory power wire with fuse, a red accessory wire for power a blue remote turn on wire and black ground wire (plus the speaker wires) The wire harness has the same colored wires, but also has an orange wire for illumination. After I installed it none of the dash lights work, and the dimmer dims the seat belt indicator on the dashboard. The rear defroster light comes on and turns off when the right turn signal is on and the right front orange parking light does not work. Very confused!!
