Engine Performance problem
2002 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 197K miles
Yesterday I was driving about 40 mph and the speedometer on the car started jumping and then when to zero. As I slowed down and continue to drive the speedometer just bounced around. In addition to this happening, the car intermittently sputtered. I had about a 1/4 of a tank of gas. I went to the gas station; added enough gas to have over a half tank and drove home slowly. Although the speedometer still did not work the car stop sputtering. Today, I left in the morning hours to go to work the car acted normal. This even the car still drove fine, but as soon as I was about to get off the beltway, the car started doing the same stuff as the day before. No gauges displayed; however, I already had a check engine light visible but was told previously it was a sensor so it was not a major item to be replaced at this time.
