Hi

If the check engine light is going on and off then it is very highly likely pointing to a misfire, and this could be due to any number of things, and your best bet by far is to have a code read done as this will give you information as to the cause of the problem, if not point you directly at the problem itself.

It could be coil packs, spark plugs, injectors, crank sensor, cam sensor, any number of things.

Regards

Jus changed thermostat and radiator on my 04 kia rio now wont start...?


Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after you put all the coolant in?
Some cars may not start, because the computer thinks there's no coolant in the engine.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 Kia Rio Cinco. Riding 2 miles from my home, car sounded like it blew a belt, car instantly quit and coasted to nearest place to park. It did throw a timing belt. In trouble shooting, it not...


were the RPM's high(above 3000) when the belt broke? if so that would explain the engine failure. the car has an interference engine which means if the crank turns a few revolutions after the camshaft has stopped then it can cause some major engine damage.

These are coil packs,the most likely problem will be the crank sensor,or the cam sensor,these are what trigger the pulse for spark,and injector pulse.
