SOURCE: 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.

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

SOURCE: timing belt 2003 kia spectra

We tried to replace the timing belt ourselves, and even though we had done it fine on other cars, we blew the engine and had to replace it. It is NOT worth it!!!

06 kia spectra how do your adjust the shift cables on a manual trans all forward gears are fine problem is with reverse no problem untie we changed the clutch


The clutch is not clearing properly ,so wait a while for it to level itself off ,to get reverse in the meantime you stop engine ,put in reverse then start engine ,if after a while it still doesnt work and tries to jump out of gear you will have to strip the gearbox and change the dog gear

What could be wrong if the car jerks hard


That is a pretty wide-open question for which there is no single answer. WHEN does it ****? When you put it into gear? While you are driving a slow speeds? When you are driving at high speeds? Does it **** as the transmission is shifting gears? Does it **** only when you put it into gear? Does it **** only in forward gears? Does it **** only in reverse? Does it **** in both the forward gears and reverse? Does it **** when making hard turns? Does it **** only when you accelerate? Does it **** when you are applying the brakes? Does it **** only when it is first started up? Does it **** after the engine has had time to reach operating temperature? Does the **** go away after driving a while? Etc., Etc.....

no link between the alternator and the gearbox ,best advice i can offer is change gearbox for a manual ,brown fluid is a sign that the front clutch has worn out with either age or high mileage so its either a recon box or find a accident damaged vehicle which is a manual and change it over to a manual

When you put the car in gear, do you feel it trying to move in any gear? usually if one gear goes you still have the others. I would make sure the shifter linkage is hooked up and in the right position. Not saying the trans could be bad but it's a lot cheaper to check the other (possibilities) before the trans. and torque convertor. I would even try changing the fluid and filter.
