I have a Kia Mentor 5 speed manual hatchback and the engine light has come on.
The engine seems to be running ok.The only thing i have noticed is that there is an intermittent hesitation at about 2800-3000 revs.

If the light came on it could be a fluid level warning. In most models today they don't have a light or gauge for the levels. I would check this first. you mention a hesitation, this could be as simple as changing the fuel filter or a faulty O2 sensor. Best bet is ti have a diagnostic scan done to find out if there is an active code present in your ECM.please rate this.....thanks

Check engine light comes on (Oxygen Sensor "Pending"), go's on and off. ???? 06 Kia Spectra 5-speed

I have a 2006 Kia Spectra hatchback 4D. It was a show room car and I'm leasing it since March 2009. The engine light comes on and off intermentaly. I took it in the Kia dealership in Calgary AB many twice and first time they said it was a part they needed flown in. Same issue after the part was tested, now they say they need to look at the wiring so they need take the engine out. I had it hooked up at Jiffy Lube free of charge and they said it was O2 sensory issue, take it to a mechanic and get it fixed there. Jiffy people said that dealerships dont care about the maintenance aspect of cars. They recommended me to take it to mechanics. Shouldn't the KIA people have picked up on the O2 sensor since its a computer diagnostic reading ?

I have a Kia Mentor 1997 SLX and its chugging to a stop after 5km

Sounds like a catalytic converter to me, disconnect the exhaust pipe before the catalytic converter, then start and run it, it's gonna sounds VERY LOUD, this should stay running now.If it does then you need to invest in a new catalytic converter, you will set off an engine code so that will be expected, get back to me with any questions.....I'M HERE TO HELP!!!

I have a kia mentor with 46000 miles on the clock and the auto gearbox will not change up in to forth gear and the gear changes are not as smooth as i would exspect it to be i have how ever noticed that...

First thing to check is the transmission fluid, if the problem does not go replacing the fluid, then on a manual transmission you need to replace the transmission.
On an automatic transmission can be a problem with the control module or with a defective sensor.
