Question about 2003 Kia Rio
2004 KIA RIO, JUST OVER 100,000 MILES WAS RUNNING FINE, SETTING AT A STOP LIGHT ENGINE DIED. TRIED TO START SEVERAL TIMES. WONT FIRE. CHECK AIR FILTER SMELLS LIKE GETTING FUEL.
THOUGHT IT TO BE ELECTRICAL. SO CHANGED SPARK PLUGS,WIRES, ELECTRICAL COIL BANK. ENGINE TURNED OVER ONCE AND LOCKED? POSSIBLE BROKEN TIMING BELT (NEVER BEEN CHANGED SINCE NEW) ? VALVE UP AGAINST PISTON????
Sounds like the timing belt it has a interference engine so if the timing belt broke you could have bent rods and cracked pistons or worse. good luck
