common problem with the 4.2L is o2 sensors, depending on the code. you need a obd11 scan tool and it will tell you which bank is faulty. your vehicle has 3 o2 sensors.

2002 kia rio rxv..check engine light came on..


This could be an O2 sensor or sometimes with lower grade gasoline I have seen different cars act this way. If the O2 is not bad try mid to super gas or fuel system treatment/cleaner to see if there is a change. I know in my area there is mostly 10% ethanol which will lower octane. I hope this helps!

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.
