Yes be careful with the caliper pistons, make sure they do not fall out.
You must push them back into the cylinders in order to put new pads in.
Thats now out of the way, Just be sure to lube up the sliding pins on the calipers. if you are replacing rotors be careful of the brake lines when you remove the caliper and to hang the caliper with a wire hanger or caliper hanger if you have one to not stress the brake lines

Also, IF you are turning or changing your rotors, be prepared for a possible hard time with the two screws that hold the rotors onto the hub. They're made of relatively soft metal; if they're stuck in tightly, you can easily strip the screw heads.

Sounds like you have fuel pump issues. May need to replace the fuel pump. Does the check engine or service engine soon lights come on? That or maybe injectors, or something alone the fuel system line. First check would be fuel pump.

To be honest with you, the best way is to get a manual like a Haynes or a Chilton for this procedure since it is so different on so many models.

My cable battery bracket has just broken(sheared in 2 pieces)--how can I fix this so my car can start?


Put up the hood and hold the cable closed on the terminal with a pair of pliers. once the car starts it should run fine without the pliers as long as the charging system is working correctly. Then drive to a parts store and replace the cable.

My garage suggests replacing the timing chain now --my 04 amanti has just 52K on it--Is this 425.00 repair necessary at this time?


Typically you don't change the timing belt on a car with less than 80-100K unless the water pump has gone out and you are in there anyway so you change it then to save time and money in the future.
I would say, obviously unless you are having timing issues, that at 52,000 miles you should be good to go for quite a while longer.  That being said, if you are having check engine light issues and/or timing issues you might need to take a look at it.

''No Con'' appears on radio screen on 2004 Kia Amanti


the radio could be locked up you can pull the audio fuse in the dash out for a min or 2 then plug back in. that should fix it. if not you need a new radio. Kia doesn't make them anymore so you either need to find a junkyard one or go to the dealer to have them ship it out and get repaired.
