Just replace engine in 2005 kia spectra 2.0l and now it won't crank. do i need to reset the computer or what, if so how to do it?

If you just replaceD the engine in your 2005 Kia Spectra, was the replacement engine a good one? It sounds to me like it's a starter or starter solenoid issue! Try "hot-wiring" the starter solenoid, to see if the engine cranks. All security systems are "low level" in terms of current control. But a DIRECT connection from a good battery to the starter solenoid should engage it, which should complete the circuit from the battery to the starter motor.

Replace a clutch on kia spectra 2003

That is a job to be done on a lift in a repair shop

The transmission has to come out first to get to it

Expect to pay $800.00 or more , if done correctly

The flywheel has to be machined & balanced,
then the new clutch pressure plate balanced along with
the flywheel

Not done that way, then not done correctly

You also replace the clutch slave cylinder

Keep this info for your shop questions
when you go getting prices.

I have a 05 Kia Spectra 5 speed manual transmission. The clutch is slipping. Is there any way to adjust the clutch or do I have to replace the clutch?

What mileage? where does the pedal "take up". You have given no really useful information to assist.On experience I will say this. The clutch may be worn or spirngs weakened through your poor driving techniques... or it could simply have engine oil on it from a faulty rear main seal...whatever it is you should have the box out and the items inspected yes for analysis..but replace the oil seal, machine flywheel (sanding is NOT good enough and instal a new clutch kit. .

Clutches slip at every clutch change..but that is limited.... a slippng clutch during driving should always have the flywwheel machined and the work done as stated above. Cheers Tony.

I have a 2005 kia spectra and when i turn the ac on it is slipping real bad, what is it? I think it is the air conditioning clutch but i dont know for sure! it stops making the noise when i turn the ac off...

I had this problem, the belt was worn out and the bearings in the AC pulley are going bad. Removed the belt to the AC and the problem went away, no AC until I get the replacement.
