That code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.

Hi my kia rio 2003 suddenly started to make a noise from engine


The abs light means your anti-lock brake system has detected a fault and probably isn't working. Your check engine light probably came on at the same time. Get a mechanic or someone with a car computer code reader to connect to the diagnostic port under the dash and read off the error codes to diagnose your problem better.

Dont drive a car with the light flashing. A flashing check engine light means that something is really wrong and you can damage the engine if you drive it.

Kia Rio5 is hard to start and stalls after getting fuel no matter how much and the check engine light is on


Get your codes pulled for the Check engine light (CEL).

Sounds like a fuel delivery issue... possibly the fuel pump or a dirty fuel line\injector.

First thing to check is the code.

Check engine light on, while decellerating on freeway offramp the engine dropped down to an idle. when pressing the accelerator the engine barely raises the rpm's. linkage seems ok.


Check engine light usually means some failure in emissions control
system. Kia will have to hook up and get diagnostic code or codes.

Check light has come on the dash board of my 2002 kia rio 1.3 why is this?


Hi there,

The "Engine Check" means your vehicle's diagnostic computer has detected a system malfunction in one of the many electronic circuits.

If this warning light remains illuminated, then you will need to have your vehicle's Diagnostic computer read asap, at your local Kia Dealership (20mins - for a small fee) and have the malfunction corrected.

Cheers,

2006 kia rio check engine light on and code P0455


A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes2.gif, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum2.gif
