If you go to an Autozone or Advanced Auto they can give your car an engine diagnostic and they can also give you a printout of the codes and their meaning.

Replace a clutch on kia spectra 2003


That is a job to be done on a lift in a repair shop

The transmission has to come out first to get to it

Expect to pay $800.00 or more , if done correctly

The flywheel has to be machined & balanced,
then the new clutch pressure plate balanced along with
the flywheel

Not done that way, then not done correctly

You also replace the clutch slave cylinder

Keep this info for your shop questions
when you go getting prices.

Got a P1404 Fault on SMOG Test for my 2003 Kia Spectra but check engine light is NOT currently on (though it was on intermittently about 2-3 months ago and hasn't returned since). Best and most...


  • Hi Jeff,

  • What causes this error code is an EGR fault. If you remove the EGR and give it a real good cleaning and clear the code there is a good chance the code will stay away. Those EGR's get real clogged.

  • There is a possibility that a simple good cleaning will not keep the code away in which case I would recommend replacing the EGR.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Kia Spectra 2003. I have 128,000 Km's on my car. My check engine light went on 2 days ago. I went to turn my car on 24 hours later (after not driving it the day before) and my car...


It could be any number of things. Perhaps you could keep trying to get the car to run long enough for the light to come back on and check the code.

My 2003 kia spectra comes up with P116 and P128 error messages. What do I need


p0116 is-- engine coolant tempurature ckt/range performance----- p0 128 is--coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature. to fix these 2 codes are similar, change coolant tempurature sensor and thermotat all should be ok. make sure coolant in radiater is full. hope this helps you.

A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Low engine coolant level
  • Leaking or stuck open thermostat
  • Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
  • Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
  • Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

How can i replace the wheel barrings in a 2003 kia spectra


Well I had this issue and the only way these can be replaced is by a machine shop who will pack new barrings with a high pressure machine. The practical thing to do is to get a whole new hub assembly(the metal assembly by the brakes) from a salvage yard or online since this may very well be cheaper. The tool to replace the hub can be rented at Auto zone.
