If you just replaceD the engine in your 2005 Kia Spectra, was the replacement engine a good one? It sounds to me like it's a starter or starter solenoid issue! Try "hot-wiring" the starter solenoid, to see if the engine cranks. All security systems are "low level" in terms of current control. But a DIRECT connection from a good battery to the starter solenoid should engage it, which should complete the circuit from the battery to the starter motor.

Dear Eojamio,
First, call you local Kia dealer and ask them.
I checked and I found there is no oil temperature sensor on your car.
There is a oil pressure sensor.
There is also a coolant temperature sensor.
Any Kia dealer should tell you 1) what the code means, and 2) where the sensors are located.
Know that you may not be able to see them, even with a flashlight, as they are often "buried" in spaces around the engine compartment.
God bless your efforts.

Check your battery and cable and ground connections. check also your alternator belt (drive belt). Have your battery checked at any autoshops.

It could be any number of things. Perhaps you could keep trying to get the car to run long enough for the light to come back on and check the code.

Sounds like you need to take car to transmission shop.
