SOURCE: Kia spectra wont start
it is probably the starter assuming the engine isnt locked up. I would check to see if you have battery voltage at the starters solenoid wire with the key in the start position if you do i would check the fuses and starter relay

We tried to replace the timing belt ourselves, and even though we had done it fine on other cars, we blew the engine and had to replace it. It is NOT worth it!!!
