This vehicle could also have a crankshaft sensor failing. When it dies next time, if you don't have a fuel pressure gauge available, and can't rent one from a local parts house, try tapping the bottom of the fuel tank with a block of wood. If it restarts immediately, then you may well have a fuel pump problem. Don't hit the tank so hard you bend it, and don't use a sharp object, as you may puncture the tank. If this does not work, you may need a scan tool to access the data stream to check for the crank signal necessary to make the engine start and run.
(Fuel pressure on this vehicle may be in the range of 38-60psi, do not push in the valve on the fuel rail to check for fuel pressure on a hot engine, or while spinning the engine over, you may start a fire)

in my experience alot of times what happens when ignition systems get hot from running for a period of time the ignition coil breaks down and weakens when old and worn out then let it cool down for awhile then starts right back up. so look into checking into the coil break down for loss of spark

If you dont have much money, guessing what parts to change gets expensive. First, you need to verify if it has fuel pressure and spark, that will lead you in the direction to start looking for the problem. Pull 1 spark plug wire off and see if it will jump a 1/2" gap, If so, thats good. If no spark, make sure the cam is turning, you may have a broken timing belt.

Kia rio 02 died while driving down highway


The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.

Could be a couple of different sensors. MAP, oxygen, crank, or cam sensors to name a few. You will need to have it checked out on a computer to find out what it is doing for sure though.
