2005 Kia Spectra wheezing sounds in a/c

I have a 2005 Kia Spectra and the a/c has a wheezing sounds as I turn on the a/c to levels 1 -4. Now it is more of a thumping sound? Is that the fan motor about to go out? If so, can anyone advise me on how to replace it?

    Do you know where the fan belt would be located? Is it behind the glove compartment or under the hood. Thanks for the info.

Just replace engine in 2005 kia spectra 2.0l and now it won't crank. do i need to reset the computer or what, if so how to do it?

If you just replaceD the engine in your 2005 Kia Spectra, was the replacement engine a good one? It sounds to me like it's a starter or starter solenoid issue! Try "hot-wiring" the starter solenoid, to see if the engine cranks. All security systems are "low level" in terms of current control. But a DIRECT connection from a good battery to the starter solenoid should engage it, which should complete the circuit from the battery to the starter motor.

Could be the fan switch or the blower resistor. My first guess would be the resistor.

Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer/odometer is to replace the sensor.

I have a 2005 kia spectra and when i turn the ac on it is slipping real bad, what is it? I think it is the air conditioning clutch but i dont know for sure! it stops making the noise when i turn the ac off...

I had this problem, the belt was worn out and the bearings in the AC pulley are going bad. Removed the belt to the AC and the problem went away, no AC until I get the replacement.

2005 kia spectra overheating what may cause it?

Yes, turn on your A/C your fans should come on. Check your fuses, and you can stright wire the fan, take 2 wires unplug it and run your new wires from each post on the battery to the wires at the fan. That will tell you if you have a good fan motor. If you think the fan motor is ok and good you will have to check the wiring to the fan and your water temp switch.
