SOURCE: fuel tank air filter replacement.

actually you need to remove the rear left splash shield (black plastic lining inside the fender). You should see the part attached to the filler neck with a strap tie. You'll need to cut the strap tie, disconnect the electrical connector and remove the hose clamp holding the filter on to the vent hose. Install is the reverse of removal, just make sure to tightly strap the filter back to the filler tube or it'll rattle when you hit bumps. Good luck!

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: Can I change my cabin air filters on my 2007 Kia

It is a regtangular shaped box located behind the glove box. You gently remove the stoppers on both sides of the box and allow it to hang freely on its hinges . Then you will see the filter assembly.

The filter elememt rests sideways within a frame that you slide out by gently pressing on the clips at either end. You install by reversing the procedure. That's it, enjoy your fresh air......

The dealer wants $48 for one here in South Florida , I've seen them for about $40. with the shipping on the net .

Update:
All Kia Optima's can be fitted with the cabin air filter. The blower housing is used in other Kia and Hyundai models as well. The manufacturer uses the filter as a selling point for their premium offerings. On the Optima they simply fail to install a filter in the housing. The removable cover is still there. If you search hard enough in eBay motors you will find them. I paid $12. + $8. shipping.

I recommend using the above instructions to get to the blower housing, then vacuum out the narrow area the filter slides into. Mine had accumulated leaves and tree bark from parking outdoors. The filter is effective at stopping debris from flying out of the vents.

How many motor mounts does a 2005 Kia spectra have? Do they all have to be replaced at the same service visit? Are there different mounts for automatic and standard transmission mounts? thanks!


Will do my best since I'm reading from a Chilton manual that covers Sephia/Spectra 1994-2004. Here I will quote directly from the book. It's under ENGINE: Engine mounts-check and replace. Page 2A-22.
1) There are 4 engine/transaxle mounts on these models; the front engine mount, the passenger side engine mount (next to the timing belt upper cover), the rear lower engine mount (under the intake manifold) and the transaxle mount (under the air filter housing).
There is much more to this section, but you were asking about how many, not about replacing them yourself. And if it were I, yes I would replace them all at the same time. Given the labor intensive (jack up and secure car. Then jack up and secure engine, etc) have them all done so that all are the same age. As a couple side notes. The book doesn't make reference to any difference whether it be manual or automatic. And you would do well to go to your local auto parts store and pick up one of these manuals. This particular one covers not only our 1995 Sephia, but the 2002 Spectra as well. Makes sense since the Spectra is a re-badged Sephia.

2004 kia spectra with automatic transmission was slow to engage, now it jerks while in gear and kills engine.


I have the same problem, I'm cureenlty going to try Step one and, Replace the Transmission Fluid,

I'm doing this becuase, the Kia Spectra need a special transmission Fluid that the last owner or person might not have put in.

Number two reason is because from my knowledge old transimission fluid will do this also.

Do it yourself to save money search it up on google, thats how i learned.

Loud winding noise from engine when running ( transmission is fine) gets louder while driving on freeway. could it be a belt? fan belt? alternator belt? is this an easy fix(if I were to do it myself) or...


Hello sunshineyes2 and thank you for asking your question here on fixya.com.

I have actually written a general information article that will walk you through the general process of changing the fan belt on your
2004 Kia Spectra. It will also point you to the resources you need for getting the diagrams of how the belt needs to go back on. Belts usually cost less than $20 and take a few minutes to put them on.

Here is a link to that article:

00' Kia Spectra. Change auto transmission fluid


You would need to take the pan off to access the "filter" but you would be ok just to do an oil change. Unless there is a problem auto boxes are very clean inside.

What is the recommended mileage to change the timing belt on 2004 kia spectra lx sedan?


i believe it to be 200 from the dealer but i would recomend having it inspected every year it only a few extra bucks once a year and it's a lot cheeper than doing a valve and head job on your car
