Omi replaced a knock sensor on my 2003 kia rio,but still giving problem code po3025 saying knock sensor

Did you delete the code ? Maybe it wasnt the knock sensor but the wiring to it. When we get a code we check all that is involved, wiring, connector, corroded connector terminals, then we test the sensor. If there is a fault in the wiring and or connector, this will set a code for the sensor indicating the need for a proper dignosis.

How do i adjust my rear drum brakes on my 2003 kia rio

Assuming that youve got drum brakes, they are self adjusting and cany be ajusted and more then they want without frying something, if they are not adjusting properly your self adjusters are probably frozen.
You can get them from kia for 20 bucks a piece and if you do get them unfrozen make sure to check the teeth on them, they are very fine and very commonly strip off, kia call them strut assembly.
