Engine check light won't come on when engine is cold.


The check engine light should not come on at all. If it does than you need to put it on a code checker, to find out the reason for the check engine light coming on. The light is known as the malfunction indicator light (MIL). When it comes on it indicates a malfunction in the system.

Auxiliary fan of my kia rio 2003 does not work. brought it in a shop and they took the fan and tested it it works. when i checked it it again the other day it stop working.what's wrong?


there are 2 fans. one in front and one behind radiator.the front one is for a/c equipped cars only and only runs when a/c or defroster is on. the engine cooling fan comes on only when temp reaches around 210 degrees faren.you didnt say anything about overheating so i assume you may not understand how they work

Hello, got a yellow warning light on my mothers Kia rio 2002. Its about 10 0clock on the left hand side of the instrament panel, which she discribes as a engine block or tap! I havent seen the picture so...


More then likely it's going to be a check engine light, have her have engine diag. done, due to the computer pick up a bad reading from one of her engine sensor's, she can also take it to some one like Autozone and they can do a code reading for free, but tell her not to buy any thing till she has it check at a repair shop.

2001 Kia Rio running too cold


First thing to test would be the thermostat. If this is stuck open the engine would never reach correct temperature.
