Question about 2004 Kia Rio

2 Answers

2000 Kia Rio stalls when slowing down from highway speeds or just prior to stopping.

This happens after engine is fully warmed and occurs during warm/hot weather but hasn't been too big a problem during cool weather. I have replaced the MAPP twice with no change in results. The check engine light does not come on until the vehicle stalls.

    Unfortunately the weather has turned cold and the car is once again running fine so I'm unable to determine if the fix worked.

    I have a 2000 Kia Rio and it has been doing the same thing. I have sprayed the wires when it happens and it runs fine for a couple of days. Now it won't start. My best guess is either the coil pack or spark plugs. I really don't want to put a lot of money into it.

    2002 Kia Rio - Same problem. Often happens when I exit a highway and stop in the first traffic light. Car stalls and I have to turn it on. Then no problem!

Check engine light comes on. RPMs surge and sometimes engine dies when idling after engine is fully warmed up. Car hesitates at times. Car will jump or **** at times when driving at highway speeds when...


Mine was doing that also.. We changed the two EGR valves, changed spark plugs and wires, and finally cleaned the Mass Air flow Sensor with carburetor cleaner. That seemed to helped the most. You have to take the sensor off to do it.. you can find a youtube video that explains it. Now all I have to do is figure out why my car's RPM's surge when slowing down.

2000 kia sephia constant engine stalling!!!


try this procedure and let me know if it cures the problem.

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

Idle problem


First of all does this happen when the engine is cold? If so, check your injectors. They may be clogged. If it happens, are you able to start it back right away and it keep running? Do you or can you keep it running at a stop light/ If this is the case you may either have a clogged fuel filter and /or fuel line.
