Engine Performance problem
2003 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80232 miles
not the battery(new)---car won't start when I turn key but all lights are on. Engine will not turn over. I keep the ignition turned a few seconds and then do it again. After some tries it finally does start and with no trouble, except for squealing in the belts. And then that stops after seconds. All is fine afterwards. I checked belts from hood and nothing looks worn-i am no expert by far. My car has been sitting except for trying to keep it maintained by starting, warming it up, and then driving once a week for 60miles or so and of course oil change. Months back my car would only start if battery was charged good but that stopped and now it just won't start until I try turning the ignition a few times. Took it to machanic and they hooked it up to hand-computer, found nothing. And they looked under hood found nothing. -This was a couple months ago.
