Required maintenance for the 2005 kia spectra at 57,000 miles


Not sure if it helps you but the manufacturer suggests changing your timing belt around 60,000 miles. I did this at 80k and bought a kit which included a tensioner replacement. Labor intensive but if you don't do this you run the risk of damaging your engine to the point of having to replace it altogether.(if your timing belt should fail) When your timing belt fails your pistons can damage valves which may be left open due to the camshaft not being spun by the timing belt.Hope this helps a bit.... I now have enjoyed 122k miles of trouble free motoring in my 05 spectra..

2001 kia spectra will go from 1st to 2nd but will not go into drive.


Hello. Your transmission needs a tune up. If you have an AAMCO repair shop near by go there, otherwise look in the yellow pages under transmission repair. Do not drive to far in this condition as it could cause much more costly issues. J.

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.
