Question about 2008 Kia Rio

1 Answer

Check engine light came on

I just got my new 2008 Kia Rio, has been running fine, no problems, we got about 6 to 8" of snow over the weekend,, and i had a little trouble getting my car out of the driveway, but got it out after a couple minutes,, i am wondering if snow got under there and caused a problem, I noticed monday my check engine light has now came on, I didn't know to check anything else. could it be something from the snow under the car? i put my car in a garage yesterday to help warm it up, but the light is still on.

Hi there,

If you have your diagnostic codes read from your vehicle's computer, this will determine which circuit and/or component is malfunctioning (or simply not connected).

Your local Kia Dealership can do this for you (20mins) for a small fee.

Cheers,

2004 Kia Rio Cinco problems


Hi

If the check engine light is going on and off then it is very highly likely pointing to a misfire, and this could be due to any number of things, and your best bet by far is to have a code read done as this will give you information as to the cause of the problem, if not point you directly at the problem itself.

It could be coil packs, spark plugs, injectors, crank sensor, cam sensor, any number of things.

Regards
