Cylinder #1 miss fire in 2003 kia reo stand trans changed plug, power pack, wire, mass air flow sencer don't know what else to change need help.

if ignition coil(s) wires plugs are ok, there can be a burnt exhaust valve on cylinder 1. you can test it by a compression tester. it is a simple gauge with a hose attached. check it on interet. you can make one for yourself. you will disable fuel pump by removing its fuse, and remove all spark plugs. and one will try to start car when you are reading cylnder pressure one by one.

Suspension and transmission:Kia rio 2003 model I have problems and questions: What part in suspension must be replaced in order to improve the cushion felt when driving over bumps or uneven in vehicle. Is...

First off I don't think I will be able to answer all your questions but to get a smother ride your going towant to replace the shocks. They army to expensive. Yes a old spark pulg can cause a missfire. A miss fire is when the spark plug doesn't spam in the right area if it were grounding that could be considereda miss fire or if it is not firing at the correct time. The trany fluid keeps yours gears lubricated so they work smothly and helps with cooling. The best way to find out your fluid type is to go to the autoparts store and ask them and they can look it up for you and I would say your braek fluid would be a DOT 4 and your tranny probobly takes like a 60-75 weight oil but I'm not sure I say ask them to be sure.
