2007 kia spectra fill up gas tank and it wont run right for a few miles

Do you have the habit of trying to get exactly $30 in it, and top it all the way off as a result? If so, stop it, because liquid fuel may be getting into the evaporative emission system. It's supposed to absorb fuel vapors and then feed them to the engine so they don't escape to the atmosphere, but a big ol' slug of raw fuel up in there is going to totally overwhelm it.

My kia spectra engine light is flashing and when i start car smoke comes out while spitting out gas out back pipe of my care, what does this mean

Are you very sure its spitting out gas? If smoke is light in color, you have a blown head gasket-coolant level will drop and you can smell the odor of coolant in the air. If you're sure you have unburned fuel spitting out your exhaust, this is extremely dangerous to everyone around you so don't run it and get it to a shop or reply back to me...

I'm making payments on a 2001 kia spectra which sat for a year before i got it. The only thing wrong with it is that the v joints needed to be replaced... or so the previous owner thought since i had it I...

Replace the fuel filter if you have not done that yet. They are not that expensive to have replaced (about $60 for parts and labor) and it can increase engine performance, gas mileage and overall running condition. It would be a good idea to take it back to shop that installed the fuel pump and ask them to check if the fuel pump is properly grounded. If you get chance, can you give a more detailed description of how the car drives? For example, does it run good and low speeds but not at higher speeds, or is it sluggish or idling rough, etc. Thank you
