My 2004 kia spectra will not start, even when i replaced a new starter


Did you replace the starter yourself or have a garage do it? It sounds like the starter gear is not aligned properly with the ring gear on the engine. Sometimes a 'shim' is needed to make them align. Compare the old starter with the new one to see they are exact or is if a shim fell off when removing the old.

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
