Engine Performance problem
2000 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130, 00 miles
My kia exhibits some puzzling behavior. At all times and sometimes not at all. Cold or hot.
I will put it in gear and start to drive away and suddenly all my power is gone. I have to push in the clutch and rev up the motor to get it going. At other times it will bounce or jump, like the engine has power, then does not, then does.
I have changed the plugs and wires, checked fuses, run more than enough fuel system cleaner through it and am considering replacing the Alternator now. I dont have a lot of money and don't want to keep guessing my way through this. Any help would be greatly appreciated
