The biggest issue will be with the ECM. If programming changes were made between the year models to accommodate newer sensors then you will have problems with the ECM and TCM control units. If you transfer just the motor over and leave the transmission as a standard you will reduce the probability of having these problem. The motors should be essentially the same. There maybe some changes on sensor locations and in some cases you may need to make some extenders to accommodate the different locations. The second issue with the newer motor going in to the older vehicle is the ECM being able to control the Crank Position Sensor readings and maintaining the timing as this is key to the motor running well. Again, you may be able to use the ECM from the 2001 to avoid this problem but this assumes that all other major equipment is the same. Where I am seeing the largest issue is with the Transmission. In older vehicle changes from Standard to Automatic is not an issue and vice versa but in the ECM controlled world it becomes a problem. This is sometimes resolved with a simple programming upgrade at other times the ECM is designed to handle either with no further action required. This is Vehicle make and model specific though. One manufacturer may not require any further action where another may and there is no listing of exceptions.

The O D light off what does that mean? automatic 2002 kia spectra


that means that it is not utilizing the overdrive gear in the transmission. there should b a button on the shifter or on the dash to turn the overdrive back on. Consult your owners manual for the exact location.

2004 kia spectra with automatic transmission was slow to engage, now it jerks while in gear and kills engine.


I have the same problem, I'm cureenlty going to try Step one and, Replace the Transmission Fluid,

I'm doing this becuase, the Kia Spectra need a special transmission Fluid that the last owner or person might not have put in.

Number two reason is because from my knowledge old transimission fluid will do this also.

Do it yourself to save money search it up on google, thats how i learned.

THE KIA SPECTRA AUTOMATIC VIBRATES WHEN ENGINE IS ON AND IDDLE


The first thing to do is make sure that your vehicle is not due for basic maintenance. Plugs,wires,air/fuel filters. After that you can check to make sure your engine and transmission mounts are in good shape. You can do this with the help of a friend. Open the hood and have your buddy put the car in gear while holding the brake. Have your pal put the vehicle in neutral and then into reverse without letting go of the brake. Your engine should not move very much. It is normal for the engine to move maybe about a quarter of an inch but not much more. If the engine jumps and starts vibrating when thrown into gear, You more than likely have bad mounts or a bad mount somewhere. These mounts are made of rubber and fairly simple to replace. Visually inspect them to make sure they are not cracked or broken. If you replace the mounts,make sure to remove and replace them one at a time. You don't want your engine falling out of the car!!!! Good luck and I hope this was helpful.

Kia spectra transmission removel?


Sometimes the axles on these do hang up. The best way to remove these is to take 2 pry bars to place on either side and very sharply, pull quickly and the axle should break free. You should feel it pop. Do not pull on the other end of the axle. It can disconnect the joint from the inside and the you have to remove the clamp and reset the joint.

If it has a center console inside the center console is a shift interlock solenoid which when the brake pedal is depressed sends a voltage signal to the shift interlock solenoid which then unlocks the shifter allowing you to shift it. It may be bad look into it. You can also manually unlock the shifter by pulling the small plug on the console next to the shifter then sticking a screwdriver down in there far enough to un lock the shifter they made that for this reason.

Inhibitor switch


eh , Automatic transaxel Range (TR) switch , can also be referred to as the Inhibitor Switch , personally i would call it the neutral safety switch , anyway you can find the "inhibitor" switch on top left side of transaxel , it goes over the shifter shaft coming out of the trans where the shifter cable bolts onto . Looks like a 1/4 of a circle . cheers mate
