From the driver's side front wheel lean into the engine compartment and locate the place near the firewall where you would add brake fluid. It's a little plastic bottle near the firewall. Now look down below that and a little toward the motor and you should see a black handled dipstick tube. It may have a yellow dot on the top if not too dirty. It doesn't rise very high so you have to lean over and put your hand down in that area to grab it. That is the transmission dipstick. ONLY check fluid when the motor is running and the car is warm by removing the stick, wiping it clean, replacing it WITH MOTOR RUNNING and pulling it out again to check the location on the stick where the fluid stops. To add fluid, TURN IT OFF and you will need a special transmission funnel with very narrow tip. The fluid goes in where the dipstick came out. The 03 spectra has a reputation for fluid leaks from the top plugs of the transmission and this is not repairable in a mechanical way according to the dealerships.... so you will want to use transmission stop leak from the parts store for the life of the transmission. Get the really runny "acetone based" kind. It will work for some time and when it starts leaking alot down the road, treat it again with the same product. Ask the parts store to help you select it. Follow the instructions carefully.
my rio and spectra are recomended at 75k a (as per the kia shop) and if you take them in to a kia shop they put a fear into you that the belt are going to break any minute.ive been meaning to look in the owners manuel my self but i have looked at the blue book value of both my 03 rio andmy 04 spectra $500 and $800 in fair conditon . i think im not going to worry about it the belt and my time to put it on will be worth more then the both of them together .with 100% certainty i did find were it says to inspect every 30,000miles and replace if neccary
some kia's makes and models dont have one this is due to the fact kia has a lot of parts pending patents.if there is one for the sportage try half priced books ,then your auto parts store ,i use haynes .
if you cant find one on the shelf ask the auto parts person to look it up to see if it can be ordered. i own a 04 spectra and a 03 rio ,there is not a book for my rio i can use the spectra book to find some of my parts for the rio but not all of them
i found an on liner . ive been using a haynes spectra book to fix my rio. now i finaly found chiltondiy.com so the next time thats were i will go . i hope it helps you . not whanting to make matters worse i looked up the blue book value of my kia's 03 rio $500 04 spectra $800 gotta remind myself what there worth compared to how much its going to cost to fix em
Your alternator output normally should fall around 14 volts to deliver a charge to your car battery. Car batteries can easily adapt to 2V, 10V and 50V from a battery charger and likewise an upgrade from 12V to 14V output would not hurt anything.
