i had found a problem with a kia rio. it was saying tps sensor but after a couple of hours and alot of cursing it turned out to be the maf mass air flow sensor. these are expensive so i suggest that you take it to a kia dealer to have it tested or find someone who can do it for alot cheaper

there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks
