SOURCE: gear box oil filler plug - kia rio

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...

SOURCE: Check Engine light

that code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.

SOURCE: where is the drain plug exactly on a 2003 kia rio?

For the 1.6l engines:

Looking at the engine from the front end (e.g. from the right fender), the drain plug is on the left below cylinder #1.

From beneath the car, looking towards the front of the vehicle, you'll find it on the right had end of the engine block, at the back (nearest the passenger compartment. (see image below)

You'll need a 17mm wrench or socket.

The Oil filter is above it and towards the center of the block.

I have a 2002 Kia Rio Cinco. I have been told that the tailgate could be pulling down the battery. Could that be true. What exactly could it be?


It could be draining the battery if there is corrosion to ground from a positive point or if the circuit is never completely closed.

My 1998 kia sportage does not start, something is draining the battery, had the alternator, started and battery tested, all good. So what's draining the battery!


The #1 most common cause is lights being left on or lights coming on at night when the temperature drops. Lighted visors are a common problem.

Parasitic key off battery drain, how to fix My battery is draining when the car is off, approx a .10 drain, what might it be? Have checked alternator and have new battery both are fine.....


Keep the ammeter in series with the battery with everything off. take out each fuse in turn and note any change to the the residual current drain. The fuse that when pulled out results in a drop in the current drain will identify the guilty circuit. Interior glove box and trunk lights are classics for staying on when they should be off, often the contact brackets get bent and so not longer push the switch as far as they should to break connection. Good hunting
