Question about 2002 Kia Rio
I have a 2002 kia rio and all of the sudden the check engine light has come on. I have 46,400 miles on it, I had the oil changed on 1/9/13 and now the light is on. I put a new battery in around 2012 but when they checked it at the shop they said the battery was low, thing is I don't have any problems starting the car. Help please'
The check engine light comes on to tell you there is a problem with something the computer controls or receives info from. Have the computer scanned for codes. Once you have those codes post them here and I'll be happy to help you further.

I have a 2004 Kia Rio and this happens to me and you need to open the door where the gas cap is. Take off the gas cap, replace it, make sure it clicks about 5 times ,now disconnect the battery then reconnect . Hope that helps.

This could be a bad thing or it could just be the guage failed. I would bring it in to dealer and hope you are under waranty meaning under 100,000 miles. And single owner.

check the fuel line hose near the fuel regulator for wear as they tend to leak or corrode causing a gas smell inside the car. My 2000 Kia Sportage just had the same problem with the gas smell inside the car.

On my wife's car the mechanic said it was gas cap. (NOT!!) I cleared with an OBD reader and the code suggested a leak in the evatorator system. I found a steel tube that was routed over the weld flange of the gas tank. It went from the front of the car, down the drivers side, over the weld joing of the gas tank and into a charcoal evaporator filter on the passengers side near the rear wheel. The tube crossing over the gas tank crumbled when I touched it. I replaced it with a short piece of reinforced neoprene hose (to cross over the gas tank) and a couple of hose clamps. Cost of parts was about $5.00. Havn't seen Check Engine since. Good luck
