Q: What is the correct Motor Oil for a Kia Spectra?
The correct oil is not listed in the Owners Manual or on the cap under the hood.
A: I strongly recommend that you look in the owners manual. If you do not have it, then I would contact Kia directly. Another suggestion, when you find which viscosity is correct do NOT go out and buy the "cheap stuff". Valvoline is a good brand available almost everywhere, and so is Castrol.

Q: What is the song used in the Kia Spectra commercial?
The commercial is the one where the drivers keep pulling up to the gas pumps on the wrong side of the car. The song goes..."Guess I'm gonna give up. Oooooohhh, guess I'm gonna give up." Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have it stuck in my head now and I don't seem to be having any luck searching for it online.

Q: does anyone have an idea on how to remove a front break disc off a kia spectra 01?
A: It's not nearly as difficult as you may think! Once the caliper, pads, and pad bracket is removed the rotor is "loose". I don't believe Kia ever used retention screws on their rotors...if they did you'll see them, 1 or 2 small alan head screws attaching the rotor to the hub. Like I said I don't believe Kia ever used this mount style. You've gotten this far and the rotor is supposedly loose...so why isn't it coming off? It's been mounted to that hub pressed on by the wheel and exposed to serious amounts of heat. Most rotors that have not been removed or serviced in the last 6 months or so require a bit of "persuasion". The easiest way to break it loose is to tap the center (in between the lug nut studs) with a hammer. You'll see loads of debris and rust falling out as you do so. Tap around the edge of the "hat" as well (not the silver stopping surface, the raised area where the rotor mounts). It may require a few taps or it may require a few minutes of tapping. It will however break loose and pull away from the hub. Once the rotor is removed make sure you clean the hub (the component holding the wheel studs) well with brake cleaner prior to reassembly. This will ensure the new rotor (or the old turned rotor) will seat correctly. If all else fails you can buy the complete break down manual for your vehicle at most auto parts stores for about $12. This guide will give you step by step instructions on how to do the most common repairs to your vehicle. Hope this helps!

I have a 02 kia spectra and i will like to know if i take of the sterring wheel will the car wont turn on back on cause i want to get a racing one and i hear that i cant do that dies any one knows anything about that.
A: It shouldn't die, because there's no law against an owner removing their own airbags. Is it a good idea? Probably not. Also, your airbag light is going to be on from now on.
