    Hey yall. . .

    I have an '02 Kia Spectra which has been having hard starts intermittantly for a few months now. Got a new battery, but it still can be hard to start at times. Now, the hard starting has graduated to not starting at all. No one has found anything wrong. What the heck is it?

    It could be a lot of things, like a bad coil or crank/cam sensor..Is the check engine light on?...Does the starter turn the engine over?...You need to find out if it is getting spark..Is it getting fuel?...spray carb cleaner in the intake...does it start momentarily?...Jim
