    In the case of heater core or hoses, you would probably see antifreeze dripping from one or two 1inch

Fluid on firewall can also be brake fluid from the brake booster or heater core or hoses. What kind of fluid and where it's located will tell you.

Brake booster leak, you will see fluid below the booster and brake master reservoir.

In the case of leaking booster or as Bill mentioned fuel. Fix it now before driving.

Probably a split fuel hose to the fuel manifold
do not operate it until it has been fixed
get a mobile mechanic if necessary

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Kia Spectra5 The oil light flashes

The oil pressure switch may be bad, see if its leaking, although it can be bad and not be leaking. but either way, replace it, and see if that clears up your problem. If your engine really does have a oil presure problem, thats bad.

SOURCE: I need the Firing order for my 2006 kia rio

I had the same problem with the engine misfire on my 2006 Kia Rio, I took it to 5 garages, I took it to Kia, they were all ****, and had no answer to the misfiring of my engine, yes the "engine light" came on all the time, and sometimes the engine light stayed on.

They all tried flushing the fuel injectors, well that didn't work, and they were confused why it didn't work and said that they couldn't fix it, some said it was a piston, and you might have to overhaul the engine, after that and lots of money spent I had the same problem and thought to myself,well that was one ******** theory, they were so bemused by the whole misfiring of this engine and said they couldn't fix it.

They ran lots of computer tests on my car with a misfiring code that showed up, but a code is just a code with no step by step instructions to fix the problem, no one couldn't fix the misfiring problem.

$1500 later I was about to give up until my sister said that she had found a descent mechanic, told him about my problem and told me to bring my car in.

Well to my amazement, he found the problem, the misfire was caused by the coil that had been shortening (an electrical shortening), and there was evidence of a burn mark on the coil, well he changed the whole coil and changed the spark plug leads and now the car doesn't misfire and works great - I hope this is a solution to your misfiring problem, I thought I would share my story about my Kia Rio misfiring problem - Have a great day everyone.

I hardly have any clutch pedal and have to press it all the way to the floor to engage. Time for a new clutch?


Before condemning the clutch, check the clutch hydraulics. If the hydraulics are failing, the clutch it self could be fine. In your engine compartment, there should be two aluminum cylinders coming out of the fire wall. One will be attached to the brake booster and the other directy to the fire wall. Check the fluid level in the one at the fire wall. Top it off with Dot 3 brake fluid. CAUTION! Brakefluid will damage the paint on your car, so if you spill any on it or touch the surface with a fluid saturated rag, rinse it off with water!
If the fluid level is low, top it off and then pump the pedal rapidl rapiidly. It should come up to a normal height for a short period of time at which point you should be able to drive the car and see if the clutch it self feels normal, No slippage and no grinding of gears. The fluid loss is usually from the master cylinder. From inside the car, with a small light, follow the clutch pedal up to where the rod the pedal pushes can be seen entering the fire wall. Look for traces of fluid leaking out of the back of the cylinder. If the clutch master cylinder has failed, I usually recommend replacing the slave cylinder at the same time.

I went to start my car today and pushed the clutch in and it went straight to the floor on my 06 chevy cobalt ls. Can you help?


Check the fluid for the clutch. It has a small master cylinder next to the brake master cylinder. It should use brake fluid. If it is low, top it off. If it goes low again, you'll need to investigate where it's leaking from. You could have a leaking master or slave cylinder.
