I think it may be time to change the spark plugs and wires.

KIA spectra 07makes clicking sound and starts today it made sound then died then I charged the battery but under hood it smells like burning rubber,electric, or coolent it turned on and drove


i would have a very closed inspection of all the wiring and pipe work in the engine bay , when engine is cold and make sure there are no wire's of piping touching anything that gets hot ie the exhaust, also check the condition of the drive belts for the alternator, power steering , a/c if installed and make sure there in good condition, if all looks ok then i'd get the alternator checked for charge rate and the starter motor for condition and power draw on start up , hope this helps give you a place to start

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

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?

AC Blower motor died


This is more than likely just the resistor as a bad motor wouldn't start at all,And low refrigerant(Freon) has nothing to do with the blower.
