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.
