Question about 2001 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

I'm making payments on a 2001 kia spectra which sat for a year before i got it. The only thing wrong with it is that the v joints needed to be replaced... or so the previous owner thought since i had it I have had to replace the altator, cv joints, batt, fuses, and now the fuel pump. The fuel pump is installed but it seems like it is not getting any power what could be the cause... PLEASE HELP I got this car so I have a safe vechile for me to take my unborn child around in

Replace the fuel filter if you have not done that yet. They are not that expensive to have replaced (about $60 for parts and labor) and it can increase engine performance, gas mileage and overall running condition. It would be a good idea to take it back to shop that installed the fuel pump and ask them to check if the fuel pump is properly grounded. If you get chance, can you give a more detailed description of how the car drives? For example, does it run good and low speeds but not at higher speeds, or is it sluggish or idling rough, etc. Thank you

Can i unhooked my battery and reset my alarm on my 2001 kia spectra

Battery will do the same thing. Insert the fuse, then put the key in the ignition and turn it on (don't start) and see if that doesn't take care of it.

Kia spectra transmission removel?

Sometimes the axles on these do hang up. The best way to remove these is to take 2 pry bars to place on either side and very sharply, pull quickly and the axle should break free. You should feel it pop. Do not pull on the other end of the axle. It can disconnect the joint from the inside and the you have to remove the clamp and reset the joint.

There could be a hundred causes for an engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.
