To put it very simple, if you plan on keeping the vehicle for any real length of time, go to your local parts store and buy a manual. Haynes and Chilton make pretty good repair books. They have pictures, step by step instructions, safety tips, and generally, what tools are needed. A good book runs about $25.00. If you're gonna keep it, buy the book. There is no way anyone can answer you question in the proper details needed on this limited site.

Good Luck and check it out.

I have a 98 kia sephia an i cant get it to start and the starter is good but when i turn the key the starter doesnt make any noise


What happens when you try to jump start it? If it starts by jump starting then the problem is in your charging system (alternator or battery).

You should also check the fuses and make sure the starter fuse is good.

I need to replace the starter on my 1999 Kia Sephia and I would like to do it myself because I can't afford the mechanics bill.


Hi,
This starter changes just like most starter. 3 bolts and remove the wiring. Make sure to disconnect the battery first before starting the repair. It is pretty straight forward with any starter removal. Here is an excerpt from someone who made the same repair
"I removed the Air Intake tube. I also removed the battery and put it on
the side! One the right side of the engine, from above I was able to
remove 2 of the bolts holding on the starter. I then jacked up the car
and was able, with considerable gymnastics, to remove the bottom bolt.
Point - Only use a 14mm wrench or socket. From back on top, I was able
to slide the starter to the right and remove the power cable and the
solanoid cable. Down at the NAPA Store in my town, they put the old
starter on the bench and it failed 5 out of the 6 tests! I picked up a
new one - minus the $60 core charge, for $105 with tax, put it in and
the car starts like a dream. Total time for this amatuer; 3 hours."

My kia Sephia radio does not work. How can I fix this problem?


Check the fuses first. If it's not a fuse, you're looking at a trip to a dealer, or replacing it. Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com) is a great do-it-yourself radio seller. They give you all the hardware you need and great instructions.

1998 kia sephia starter


Its located just under the intake manifold. you will need to remove the exhaust pipe to access it. there is also an upper and lower intake manifold support bracket that will need to be removed as well to extract the starter.

Its in a tough spot.
