    well the idler pulley could have some bad bearings

  • ryda303 Dec 05, 2012

    Someone said when a belt slips like that it can glaze the pullys so before replacing the belt u should scrub the pullys with a scotch bright pad. I just want some opinions on what i should do

    well idler pulleys are like cheap unless you wanna clean it lol if you take the belt off id spin the idler pulley and see how free it spins

  • ryda303 Dec 05, 2012

    Thanks, im pretty sure the bearings are fine. I hope the belts are just slipping and i can just clean up the pullys so the belt dont slip. Its just load and i hate annoying my neighbors lol

it may be the ignition switch itself. If it is a manual transmission it could be the clutch safty neutral switch located on the clutch pedal.

SOURCE: 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

2001 Kia Spectra Problems


I am not familiar with this car model but i would presume that the engine is linked with an automatic choke for cold starting and the revs should go down as the engine starts to heats up. this probably works on a vacuum system based around your inlet manifold, and the noise your hear could be a leak in the vacuum pipe. you should pop your hood before starting and try listening for that noise to pin point it's location. if your lucky you might just find a small crack in a pipe that can be replaced with ease. of coarse first thing in the morning would be the best time to check this when the engine is cold.it's worth giving it a go and i hope you get it sorted,good luck

a few reasons but check the anti-sway bar bushings--upper/lower control arm bushings they are the usual areas where most squeaks come from

Car starts in the morning, but does not want to accelerate...


Check your cold start curcit in the fuel injection. It puts extra fuel in to help it run when cold ( used to be a choke on old carbs) then when you restart it the engine has warrmed enough to run without the cold strt curcit.
If you just start is and don't move it just let it run will it clear up and not die?

Stopping problem is totally unrelated to alternator. There should be a rubber hose between the engine and the brake booster behind the master cylinder. Make sure that it, as well as any other vacuum hoses are connected. If you can get it running, listen for loud sucking sound from leak.
