Hello Kia enthusiasts.
I recently replaced my Spectra's clutch system and spark plugs at same time but now it just won't start.
It crank good whit a powerful starter and have good spark on plugs.
-I reinstall and check every connector and ground wire.
-I check fuel pump and is ok too.
-I check every single fuse and ok too.
-I try a new batery and same issue persists.

I read about the fuel cut device but in a 2005 Spectra

please help me, show me the way to find the light :D

Some things to try...
Will it start with "starting fluid" ...If so you have a fuel supply problem...

Have you checked the timing belt for missing teeth...they should be replaced EVERY 5yrs or 60k miles...if the belt "slips" because of missing teeth you would have the problems you describe...Check the timing marks on the crank and cam pulleys to see if they are off...I believe that the 2002 Spectra does NOT have an "interference" type engine so a broken timing belt may also be the cause.

Thank you DavesSpectra
I did all what yo say but nothing happen.
-Replace brand new timing belt and tensors and recheck timing marks (just in case) (old belt looks good and in marks)
-Try with starting fluid and same.
-Remove the injectors and those inject good spray of fuel.
-Spark is good.
-Recheck every single fuse, all ok.
-Connect scanner and only show one code P0650 MIL malfunction indicator lamp.
maybe i forget something or something was broke when reinstal the new clutch.

When i replace the clutch sistem replace the Slave Cylinder Clutch kit too, i have to bleed the air out, and a friend help me to pump the peddal but maybe he push it to hard and cause some damage on one of the 2 pedal switches, but it is just one idea on my ignorant brain, i know one of those switches are for starter but the other i don't know.

Have you the wiring diagrams of these vehicle, maybe i can make some tests or check lines and grounds.

please helpme Dave, and thank you for your time.
