Dear Eojamio,
First, call you local Kia dealer and ask them.
I checked and I found there is no oil temperature sensor on your car.
There is a oil pressure sensor.
There is also a coolant temperature sensor.
Any Kia dealer should tell you 1) what the code means, and 2) where the sensors are located.
Know that you may not be able to see them, even with a flashlight, as they are often "buried" in spaces around the engine compartment.
God bless your efforts.

I found location for spectra5. Really need engine size for true location. On the 5, it's front of head, above where the oil dip stick handle is located. Otherwise goggle the question and go look. The is for the temp switch, so locate it than decide if you can. Wish you well

2005 Kia Spectra code P0138?


P0138 KIA HO2S12 Circuit High Voltage

check the plug to the o2 sensor first

reset the code and see if same code comes back

don't assume it's the part; check wiring as well as considering buying the new o2 sensor

Ck engine codes


Possible causes for P1505 & p1507
Faulty Idle Speed Control Actuator valve, harness is open or shorted, Idle Speed Control Actuator valve circuit poor electrical connection. No the codes are not related to the EGR. P0198 is related to the engine oil temperature sensor. By the way you should use a meter as supposed to a test light. The test light will not be able to measure 5 volts reference or voltage drops. However I would try replacing the affected parts based on the codes and the info you've provided. Good luck.

P0198


That code is the code for oil temperature sensor being too high. What the means to you is that something is causing that sensor to fail when it has been on a while. Replace it.

Check Engine Code - p0198


P0198 - Engine Oil Temperature Sensor High (excessive oil temperature sensed)
Possible causes - Engine not at operating temperature.
- Cooling system problem of stuck thermostat.
- EOT circuit failure.
- Faulty Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) sensor
- Damaged PCM. (computer)

2005 kia spectra speedometer and odometer not working, no codes, everything else functions and car drives fine any sugestions on how to troubleshoot.


Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer/odometer is to replace the sensor.

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

Replaced catalytic and o2 sensor check engine light won't reset 2005 kia spectra lx


It won't automatically reset. Most parts stores will check / reset the code for free, and if it doesn't reset, they can tell you what kind of code is causing the problem.
