Code p1404

My manual doesn't list any codes of this configuration. They all start with PO followed by 3 digits. Checked receipt from recent shop work on '02 Spectra, same thing. Had multiple codes, but all had same configuration. Using OBD-II unit. This unit gives the code and then the probable cause.

Those codes are all misfire codes. you have misfires in cyl 3 and 6. the 300 means multiple cylinder misfire. Id first start by checking your coils plugs and wires.

Random multiple misfire P0300, P0302, P0304 on 2006 Kia Rio

A competent mechanic will check all probable causes associated with these DTC codes.
Code P0300: Random-Multiple misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Vacuum leaks, damaged hoses, or improper routing
2. Fuel contamination
3. Ignition system - Ignition module, coil, spark plugs and wires
4. Fuel system
Code P0302: Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system
Code 0304: Cylinder 4 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system

Be sure the invoice enumerates all of these probable causes as having been checked. Also, some of the replacement parts installed earlier may be faulty.

2004 Kia spectra runs fine at start up but bogs down after a few minutes codes are multiple miss fire and 3 and 4 misfire all coil packs plugs and wires are new

The codes mean the computer saw a drop in RPM at the point when those cylinders should have been producing power.
The problem could be ignition, but also fuel injectors or compression.
Could also be a cam sensor but you should have a code for that.
