  1. 2004.5 spectra with newer transmission?

    Cerato (2003 - 2008) & Spectra5 (2004)
    Depends on whether the donor car has the Beta II engine or the Theta engine. If it has the Beta II, it will fit.
  2. Fog Light and Cruise Control ?

    Cerato (2003 - 2008) & Spectra5 (2004)
    I have a 06 Spec5 and my cruise control switch is on the same side as the wiper control. Since you said yours is on the left side, under the headlight controls, I would say you have an after market unit. You can go to Kia Global Information System (KGIS) and sign up for a free account. Then just...
  3. 2006/8 Kia timing belt replacement

    2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Make your Dealer show you in writing that if you don't do such-n-such it will void the warranty. This is all covered under the Federal Magnusen/Moss act on vehicle warranties.
  4. Can an ECM be rebuilt or do I have to replace it??

    Kia Sportage Forum
    Electronic Control Module, I don't know of anyone that can rebuild a KIA ECM. It is all circuit board. Find a used one at a salvage or on Ebay. Some ECM's on other makes of cars can be rebuilt because of the way they are made. To pay an electronics person to find what failed and replace it would...
  5. Can't have lowering springs 10 plate proceed

    Kia Cee'd Forum
    What the dealers are quoting is The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Here is a part of that act: US Code - Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312 "Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part...
  6. Performance Exhaust

    Cerato (2003 - 2008) & Spectra5 (2004)
    Nobody makes aftermarket performance exhaust for your car. Go to an exhaust shop and tell them what you want and they will have to custom build you one. The Cherry Bomb brand you mentioned is not a mellow sounding muffler. In fact Cherry Bomb is actually a resonator to be used with a muffler...

    Kia Cerato, Shuma & Spectra Forum
    I'm not tottaly sure but I would say no. But go to the StreetKiaz website. I know there is someone there that can answer better. There are people there that are swapping engines all the time.
  10. turbo questions

    Kia Cerato, Shuma & Spectra Forum
    06 Spec 5 show and go My Spec 5 is highly customized and is a daily driver too. In fact it's the only customized Kia in the State of Oklahoma. The only speed parts are a cold air intake, Meagan header (no Cat), and the OEM Cat back center exit exhaust. It has show paint, interior, LEDs, wheels...

    Cerato (2003 - 2008) & Spectra5 (2004)
    I have the KFX strut bar, CAI, and rear sway bar on my 06 Spec 5. Car acts totally different. Better accerlation, no understeer at all, and better orerall handling. I highly recommend those upgrades. Everything is very easy to install.
  12. tibby sway bar on spectra

    Cerato (2003 - 2008) & Spectra5 (2004)
    The bar I put on my 06 Spectra 5 is the one they sell at KFX. I found out when it arrived that it is from an 03 Tibby. At least that was what the bill of sale said. It bolted up easily with no modifications of any kind. I have virtually lost all of the understeer that I had and I'm still running...
