Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
Wait till check light comes back on then read code again.

It could be any number of things. Perhaps you could keep trying to get the car to run long enough for the light to come back on and check the code.

\I WAS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM, IF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON, IT COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALETIC CONVERTER, THE EASIEST WAY TO TEST THIS ,TO ME ANYWAY, IS TO DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST PIPES(COMING OFF THE ENGINE) AND THE CONNECTION TO THE FRONT OF THE CATALETIC CONVERTER, THEN START THE CAR AND SEE WHAT IT DOES, IF THE ENGINE SURGE GOES AWAY(REMEMBER THE CAR WILL BE LOUD) BUT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE ENGINE HEALTH TO GO TO NORMAL, IF IT DOES YOUR CAT IS CLOGGED

If your gonna do it yourself, then, sure replace the filter as well. If you have one of those exchange machines do it, the machine, in my experience, gives a reading while it's exchanging. Apparently the lower the reading, the less flow thru the system, usually meaning the filter. Hope this helps.

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light is turned on, the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls and monitors of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
