The fan only comes on when needed, if one works they both likely do.

SOURCE: Kia Rio overheating although everything seems ok

Possible early signs of a water pump problem. A failing waterpump will circulate coolent when the RPMS are high but when you slow down, so does the waterpump, thereby causing overheating.

SOURCE: how to change front headlite

Open the hood and locate the three bolts that hold the headlight unit in.
Use a 10mm socket and remove the bolts.
Now comes the only tricky part. You must pull the whole assembly straight out towards you with a ****. This will release the one attaching clip that is not visible. Don't try to pry the unit out you will just scratch the car or the lens. No he-man stuff either; you don't want to rip the wires out. A good straight tug should pop it loose.
Two wires only hold the light in at this point.
Next twist counterclockwise the turn signal socket and remove the bulb.
Now push the locking tab on the other wire/ socket and pull it out.
You should have the complete assembly in your hands.
On the back is a big round cap. Notice which way it fits. Turn it counter clockwise and it will come out.
Inside is the bulb. It's held in with a spring clip. Push the clip down and out from under it's holder and swing it up and out of the way.
Pull the old bulb out. Remove the wire plug by pulling it straight out, don't twist it.

2002 kia rio fuel pump not starting


you may have to get a new wiring harness for it or create a jumper to run to the fuse box so that it only comes on when the car is on and shuts off with the car.
