Kia spectra stall as it excellerates

Hi
I was told that if my clutch is going bad it would affect my kia's intake preformance (incedently my clutch is not slipping) and the fuel system would try to compensate by not allowing higher rpms to be reached,
Anyone if this is true?
Thanks in advance

Engine check light on


The light can take up to 100 miles of varied driving to go off. If after a week lets say it is still on the problem is not fixed.

I have a 2005 Kia Spectra, I know that i need the brakes done but could this be affecting my steering. I had a very hard time turning the steering wheel in any direction. Any suggestions?


The brake system will not cause the steering wheel to turn hard. The only steering problem bad brakes will create is pulling one way or the other. Check the power steering system.

MY 2009 KIA ONLY HAS 18000 MILES ON IT AND NOW I AM BEING TOLD I NEED TO REPLACE THE CLUTCH - MY HUSBAND AND I ARE IN OUR LATE 50S AND ARE THE ONLY DRIVERS OF THIS CAR - SO WILL I HAVE TO REPLACE THIS ONCE...


Honestly, no. You shouldn't have to. Unfortunately, this is a common problem with the 2.0 Kia Spectra. I'm an owner of one, myself. Although I'm a 25 year old male and drove this car 30,000 miles, I babied this car. I had to replace the stock clutch plates at about 16,000 miles, and did so with a stage II clutch set from eClutchMaster.com. This performance clutch lasted about 13,000 more miles before also giving out. I believe there to be a defect in the slave cylinder set-up that causes the plate to fail to fully seat on the flywheel. (I'm a mechanic) Unfortunately, there hasn't been a recall as of yet, but keep an eye out.

2006 Kia Spectra/ problem with the blower tuning on & off


I too have had this problem and if you tap the blower on your heater below your passenger side dash your blower will come on. I found that the problem with mine is a loose wire in the wiring harness going to the blower. It seems to be a easy fix, find which wire is ground and that will be your coulprete. yeah kia's dealerships **** ! trust me I know!

My 2003 kia spectra stalls


Hi,
It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.
  • Try to check your fuel filter.
  • The seive on the fuel pump.
  • The fuel injectors might be dirty.
  • The air cleaner might be clogged
or the fuel sensor might be malfunctioning.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.

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