Not throwing out any heat could be several problems to fix and check. possibly check the Heat controlls on dash of your Rio it may not be functioning properly. Low coolant may cause engine to overheat. you may want to back flush the cooling system. Is the fan motor for the heater working.Possibly a vaccum problem, check vaccum hoses in engine compartment. are they all connected are they brittle or cracked, replace if you see visually if they are.

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: 2004 Chevy Impala no heat from defrost or heater

No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)

Why am I not getting any heat out of the heater/defroster?


If the heat selector control button is working properly and there is no heat, check level of coolant. Low coolant will be a definate cause of low/no heat. If coolant level is good, you need to check blend doors for proper operation on the heater control assembly

Ok so my 2001 kia rio ran fine on my trip from nor cal to phoenix, az and ran fine for 3 weeks after. I noticed the oil level was very low when I checked it a few days ago and it started to overheat. I put...


Your engine does not overheat because the oil is low. Do you get heat out of the vents? Check the fluid level in the radiator not the reservoir. Due this with the engine cold. If the radiator is low than you have a leak somewhere. Add coolant to the radiator and see if you can see any abvious leaks. You may need to have the cooling system pressure checked in order to find the leak. If the coolant level is full in the radiator than you may have a bad thermostat. If you get heat out the vents than we can assume the coolant level is full and the water pump is working. When the temp gauge is hot feel the upper and lower hoses. If one is hot and one is cold than the t-stat may be the problem. If there is no heat out the vents and the coolant level is full than you may have a bad water pump. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 2004 Kia Sorento, i get head when moving only, is it the Heater or the Termostate ?


Check out your coolant level first, and it may need to be filled. There has been a known promblem of the coolant reservior leaking on the sorento and causing low level of coolant, and causing no heat because coolant wasn't pressurize enought to the termostate until car acutally moving or in high rpm.

P0304 code is a cylinder 4 misfire. If the plugs or wires are bad it will cause a decrease in power. I suggest changing the plugs and wires and see if that helps.
