Yes, that would be an aftermarket unit. Don't put it on! Take it back and get your money back, and go to dealer-get an oem (original equipment manufacture) sensor. May cost more, but too many horror stories abound with putting sensitive after market sensors on cars. Too often, they just don't work as well as original manufacturer parts. Some things are fine as aftermarket, but I wouldn't recommend electronic parts that communicate with the engine computer.

It may just be cold weather that's making your O2 sensor toss a code to the computer. If the car starts to chug when you drive it you will probably want to have a shop look at it.

Testimonial: "thanks - did wonder about it being related to severely cold weather. Did take it to garage last saturday, but couldn't find the problem. "

SOURCE: i have a 2004 kia rio manual trans. it will crank

Sounds like most of Kia problems...timing belt !
BEWARE that this is an "Interference Engine", meaning the valves and pistons "interfere" with each other and more than likely serious damage has already occurred.
If this is in fact the case engine will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
Good Luck!

Your top O2 sensor (the LAF sensor) may be unplugged or the wire may be damaged, or it may be dead.

Odds are, the O2 sensor is just detecting an imbalance in the Air/Fuel ratio, therfor causing your O2 sensor code.

Start by changing your spark plug wires, if it hasn't been done in a while.

Kia rio 02 died while driving down highway

The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.

2004 Kia Rio Cinco problems


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.
