Have the throttle body and the idle speed control valve cleaned, they get full of gunk and cause this concern.

SOURCE: back brakes kia spectra 2007

Hi bead_crafts5,
My name is Dennis and I hope to be of assistance.
I have to assume that you are trying to get the piston to retract into the caliper while trying to put new pads on a disc brake. When the pads are worn down the piston is nearly out of the cylinder of the caliper and when you try to get the piston to go back into the caliper it can **** slightly in the bore of the caliper. Center a "C" clamp in the piston and carefully screw the clamp closed pushing the piston back into the bore. While this is taking place the brake fluid is being forced back int the master cylinder and the going will be slower than you think it should be. Just be aware that you are trying not **** the short stubby piston in it bore as you force it to retract to allow you to put the thicker pads in place.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution I can learn from your rating.
Thank you

I had the same problem. Took it in & the shop replaced a relay in the drivers side door. This fixed the problem. They said this has happened to alot of these cars.

SOURCE: Can I change my cabin air filters on my 2007 Kia

It is a regtangular shaped box located behind the glove box. You gently remove the stoppers on both sides of the box and allow it to hang freely on its hinges . Then you will see the filter assembly.

The filter elememt rests sideways within a frame that you slide out by gently pressing on the clips at either end. You install by reversing the procedure. That's it, enjoy your fresh air......

The dealer wants $48 for one here in South Florida , I've seen them for about $40. with the shipping on the net .

Update:
All Kia Optima's can be fitted with the cabin air filter. The blower housing is used in other Kia and Hyundai models as well. The manufacturer uses the filter as a selling point for their premium offerings. On the Optima they simply fail to install a filter in the housing. The removable cover is still there. If you search hard enough in eBay motors you will find them. I paid $12. + $8. shipping.

I recommend using the above instructions to get to the blower housing, then vacuum out the narrow area the filter slides into. Mine had accumulated leaves and tree bark from parking outdoors. The filter is effective at stopping debris from flying out of the vents.

I have a 07 kia spectra lx 2.0, 5 speed that when I press in on the clutch the starter engages what do i do?


It sounds to me like either the relay is stuck closed or your ignition switch has a problem. This is what I would do. After you start the car remove the starter relay. It is under the hood in the fuse and relay box. I have provided a diagram below. This will allow you to drive the car to your mechanic and not damage the starter.

2007 Kia Spectra LX manual transmition theStarter kepps going on when I change gear


It is probably the bendix not retracting the gear properly.

It could also be the ignition switch, usually when you start it the key moves back a little out of the start position, make sure this is happening. Can you hear the starter when you are in neutral and idling? If so, the gear is not returning, the solenoid is stuck or the wiring is having a problem.
