Question about 2006 Kia Spectra

3 Answers

I have a 2007 Kia Spectra5 and have the same problem

When I make the first two or three turns out of my neighborhood in the morning, I hear the sloshing. I think it goes away after I drive for a while, so the heater core/coolant theory makes sense. Has anyone had any luck getting the dealer to fix this?

    Have a 2009 Kia Spectra, same thing with the "sloshing" sound; just added antifreeze, sound is gone now.

The only answer I could get out of my dealer on this was they called it an "adjustment" and wanted to charge me $50 bucks. There is apparently a Tech Service Bulletin about it, so they know the issue (air pocket in the coolant system) exists. They will only fix it for free if the car is under 1200 miles.

If there is a TSB out on this then they should fix it from free. If they don't do it then report them to Corporate HQ and find a new dealership.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 05 kia spectra5 ? It has disc brake front and rear.


Disc brakes are not adjustable. You may have a parking brake that is like a mini- brake shoe in the middle of the rear rotor. Those are adjustable, but tough to get at, and they rust badly. Look to see if your "cable" goes either to an arm that actuates the shoes, or if it goes to the caliper. If it goes to the caliper, you have no parking brake shoes.

Overheating


Sounds like there's a leak in your coolant system or the gagues are malfunctioning. My friend has a 2005 Spectra5 and he has been having problems with the check engine light. Apparently it's a software problem that he's waiting for the manufacturer to have a fix for it. My recommendation is to take it into the dealership right away, perhaps even have it towed in just in case it may cause damage to the engine to drive it as is. A suggestion when you have a brand new car, you should not take it on long freeway trips (i.e. do not let the engine set at a fixed engine speed including idle) for more than 10 minutes at a time until you have 500 miles on it to allow it to properly break in first.
