SOURCE: i have five codes P2237

P2237 P2196 P2271 P0030 P0171

These are all O2 sensor trouble codes, except P0171 which is a fuel trim code,

You have a bad 02 sensor - up stream - Bank 1 Sensor 1.

Replace it, then road test. The engine computer has a 'default' fuel trim it uses when an O2 sensor fails so it can protect the catalytic converter. If this hasn't been going on too long, good chance simply replacing the O2 sensor will remedy your problem.

I have a 2005 kia spectra and it runs rough when you start it. Then when driving it the check engine light flashes but does not stay on. It used to run great till it got warmed up then it would stall


Go to www.kiatechinfo.com, make an account for free and you can access all the information the factory techs use.

But you should have the obd codes scanned to see what the issue is and you should know that when the light flashes you should not drive it because it can damage the engine.

2005 Kia Spectra code P0138?


P0138 KIA HO2S12 Circuit High Voltage

check the plug to the o2 sensor first

reset the code and see if same code comes back

don't assume it's the part; check wiring as well as considering buying the new o2 sensor

free rental tool to help you install this as well from your local auto parts store

2004 kia spectra, check engine light is on and wont go off to pass inspection, so what can be wrong with car, but it runs good.


Can you tell me what code comes up or do you not have a code reader? If you just want to turn check engine light off, you can disconnect the battery for a few minutes and this will usually clear the engine code, but it will not cure the problem. The light will come on again after 40 or more KM's.

MY 2005 Kia Spectra check engine light came on as I was driving, no problems visible. Do I have a need for concern?


You should have the code read to see what it is. This can be done for free at your local auto zone, advanced auto, or o`rielys. Some cars are so sensitive that not getting the gas cap tight will send a code but you wont know because it takes like 70 starting cycles to clear on its own. Have it checked as soon as possible to be sure.

I have a 2005 Kia Spectra. The check engine light has been on and i got it checked. What does engine code Po0011 mean?


Hi Po0011 is not a valid code but if you meant P0011 then it refers to an over advanced cam timing fault.

2002 Kia Spectra Jerking Problem


check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck

I have a 2005 kia spectra and the "check engine" light keeps on coming up. any thoughts?


could be anything ,check the levels first then see what happens but as this is a 2005 model i think it might be a dealer job because it could be the first of the encrypted software type so evan if you try a scan it will not show the true fault

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.
