I have a 2003 kia Spectra. I ran out of gas and put more in it but now my car won't start. you can hear the fuel pump come on but on some tries you dont. it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't.


Intermittent problems like yours are VERY difficult to fix. Afraid you need to take it in to a mechanic. But then, you can't start it, so need to pay someone to go to you.

2003 Kia Spectra odd rattle in shifter


You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.
