Its probably a bad thermistat, it says ect on the code but it means the temp is out of range. the sensor cannot make it run hot.

Need help please my 2007 kia spectra fan stopped. I checked all fuses and all appear good. Any ideas


electronic coolant fans (radiator) are controlled by a temperature sensor in the cooling system. It in turns energizers a circuit in the ECM that activates a relay to allow power to the fan. To check the system you have to check that the relay is getting power from the ECM, that the sensor is actually operational and that both fuses are ok. Remember that the fan will not operate unless the coolant temperature is nearing the thermostat opening temperature (from 75 degrees F upwards)

What do I do i replaced the engine in my 2007 Kia Spectra with an engine from a 2005 it idles good however it will not speed up what do I need to check for now?


i believe your vehicle has a speed sensor as well
as that throttle position sensor. If you did replave
the throttle position sensor, did you make sure
you put the new one back in the exact way you
pulled the old one out? There may be a camshaft
sensor giving you a problem. There are several
sensors that may have something to do with that.

Try changing the fuel filter first. Then you will have to clear the code with a jumper.

My 2003 kia spectra comes up with P116 and P128 error messages. What do I need


p0116 is-- engine coolant tempurature ckt/range performance----- p0 128 is--coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature. to fix these 2 codes are similar, change coolant tempurature sensor and thermotat all should be ok. make sure coolant in radiater is full. hope this helps you.

A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Low engine coolant level
  • Leaking or stuck open thermostat
  • Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
  • Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
  • Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

Replaced catalytic and o2 sensor check engine light won't reset 2005 kia spectra lx


It won't automatically reset. Most parts stores will check / reset the code for free, and if it doesn't reset, they can tell you what kind of code is causing the problem.

2005 kia spectra overheating what may cause it?


Yes, turn on your A/C your fans should come on. Check your fuses, and you can stright wire the fan, take 2 wires unplug it and run your new wires from each post on the battery to the wires at the fan. That will tell you if you have a good fan motor. If you think the fan motor is ok and good you will have to check the wiring to the fan and your water temp switch.
