First of all does this happen when the engine is cold? If so, check your injectors. They may be clogged. If it happens, are you able to start it back right away and it keep running? Do you or can you keep it running at a stop light/ If this is the case you may either have a clogged fuel filter and /or fuel line.

    I am glad to hear that was all that it was. This can lead to some serious costs.

O2 kia rio stalls after three seconds


So, it will start right up with no issues after it stalls? Could be a few things. You may have faulty O2 sensors causing the fuel trim to cause problems, it could be a bad/dirty MAF sensor that just needs a cleaning, or you may have an Idle Air control valve that isn't functioning properly. Some of these things you can do yourself, but you'll need a scanner that can see live data to look at the others.

I have a 2002 Kia Rio. It started trying to stall when going into slow traffic or at stop signs. Now it is hard to start when it is cold. I have had the fuel filters changed, the crank sensor replaced,...


This is likely going to be the Pre cat that is connected to the exhaust just off of the exhaust manifold attatched to the cylinder head. These were a little problematic for plugging and causing exactly what you are describing. Find a trusted exhaust shop in your area and have them inspect. Once the pre cat has been unistalled and the engine ran, it should clear up and run good proving the repair. Install a new one and enjoy that little car. Let me know what is found.

2002 kia rio stalls when coming to a stop if the gas is not applied


My personnel fix for this.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

2002 Kia Rio runs rough when idling


well spend some change and have a simple tune-up.  Plugs and filters and readjust the idle.

Back fireing


The timing belt very well could be the problem. Those things last about 60k, 75k tops. The fuel filter should be checked( replaced ) as well. You can have the check engine checked for free at Advanced Auto. Does this car have a computer board ?

02 Kia Rio Stalled and won't start


Hi,this could be a bad timing belt , you can check it by removing the oil cap and have some one crancking the engine look inside,, if the valves does not move while the engine is turning you have a broken timing belt.......
