    If your engine is still over heating, check the hoses. We're going through something very similar right now. Last week I posted that my heater was acting up. Yesterday it the engine started over heating. We replaced the thermostat and thought it was all fixed. Wrong. We're getting one of the hoses replaced today as it was spewing coolant all over the engine. When it rains, it pours!

2003 kia spectra check engine code p0604


I have bad news for you
p0604 is a transmission control module

check the connection at the transmission control module if there are no connection issues than you will need to replace the transmission controll module "tcm" there is no other test for that code.

good luck
