I'm having similar trouble with my 03Spectra. Unfortunately, I've had this problem twice in the last four years of ownership and am looking at a 3rd new transmission needed.

2002 kia spectra - transmission has slight slip and then car shut off at traffic light. started right back up and drove fine...any ideas on what caused it or can fix it?

It sounds like you're having problems with the transmition sensors or you may have a catalytic converter that is going bad. I would have it professionally diagnosed.

I have a 05 Kia Spectra 5 speed manual transmission. The clutch is slipping. Is there any way to adjust the clutch or do I have to replace the clutch?

What mileage? where does the pedal "take up". You have given no really useful information to assist.On experience I will say this. The clutch may be worn or spirngs weakened through your poor driving techniques... or it could simply have engine oil on it from a faulty rear main seal...whatever it is you should have the box out and the items inspected yes for analysis..but replace the oil seal, machine flywheel (sanding is NOT good enough and instal a new clutch kit. .

Clutches slip at every clutch change..but that is limited.... a slippng clutch during driving should always have the flywwheel machined and the work done as stated above. Cheers Tony.

Transmission flares / slips on initial take off in drive / overdrive. 3 speed + overdrive automatic transmission in 2003 Kia Spectra with 1.8 liter engine.

I had the same issue and bought some sea foam transmission fluid product and it seems to have worked. Just be careful not to overfill it.

Transmission slip

the transmission is failing, it is losing hydraulic pressure either from a failed pump or a defective seal inside the transmission, by now the clutches are fried as well, so a tear down and rebuild is the only thing to do to fix this.

Transmission slipping

Check the fluid level for the transmission and 'top-off' if necessary. If it was ok, then you may need to visit your transmission servicer to replace a plugged filter, a worn pump, or other problems. Good luck with this.
