Question about 2000 Kia Spectra
Makes a loud squeal, then a low squeal, thought the tension might be wrong but 3 different shops said i put it on right. In 2004 had lower cat gutted, sparks, coil, major tune up done because one of the gears dumped fuel, then had to get water pump replaced the wheel snapped off ,since then i have been doing the regular tune ups, 2010 and 2012 replaced fuel pump. bought the car brand new in Cali 2000 moved to NC 2002 til 2010 now in GA. No oil leaks, no PS leak, do have upper cat issue now and electrical issues just cant figure out the noise. Yes it will not pull inclines that well and can not accelerate fast bogs, it is a 5 speed. checked fuel lines and all and changed sparks and cleaned fuel injectors

try a new fuel filter if this doesnt work it might have the wrong plugs in it worth checking with a garage for the "plug gap" this can be ajusted so dont let them get a new set of plugs out of u!!

sounds like lower end bearing damage (connecting rod) when oil level drops at interstate speed a connecting rod bearing will seize very quickly thus causing the bearing to spin in the rod and enlarge clearance . that is the knocking sound you here .
