Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
To establish if there is reason for concern, you will need to query your vehicle's onboard computer to see if there are any abnormalities.
If you are technically inclined and wish to try this (it won't cause any harm), then locate your Datalink connector near the battery, fusebox or airflow meter, on the left side of the engine bay. It looks like this:
1 Warm the engine to operating temperature. 2 Switch ignition OFF. 3 Look at the connector and connect the two terminals (as per either diagram): or 4 Turn ignition ON. 5 Read codes as follows: The Engine Check light will flash: • Each code is made up of two series of flashes. • The long flashes indicate the 'tens' digits. • The short flashes indicate the 'ones' digits. • A long pause separates each code sequence. Once you have your codes, repost here and we will be happy to diagnose further. If no codes present, then there are no emission issues - perhaps look for possible fuel leakage along the fuel lines/hoses.
