I have yellow check engine light on in my 2008 kia rio and just took it to autozone and they ran a scan on it said misfire cylinder 1whats that mean and how can i fix it ?
I had the same problem with the engine misfire on my 2006 Kia Rio, I took it to 5 garages, I took it to Kia, they were all ****, and had no answer to the misfiring of my engine, yes the "engine light" came on all the time, and sometimes the engine light stayed on.
They all tried flushing the fuel injectors, well that didn't work, and they were confused why it didn't work and said that they couldn't fix it, some said it was a piston, and you might have to overhaul the engine, after that and lots of money spent I had the same problem and thought to myself,well that was one ******** theory, they were so bemused by the whole misfiring of this engine and said they couldn't fix it.
They ran lots of computer tests on my car with a misfiring code that showed up, but a code is just a code with no step by step instructions to fix the problem, no one couldn't fix the misfiring problem.
$1500 later I was about to give up until my sister said that she had found a descent mechanic, told him about my problem and told me to bring my car in.
Well to my amazement, he found the problem, the misfire was caused by the coil that had been shortening (an electrical shortening), and there was evidence of a burn mark on the coil, well he changed the whole coil and changed the spark plug leads and now the car doesn't misfire and works great - I hope this is a solution to your misfiring problem, I thought I would share my story about my Kia Rio misfiring problem - Have a great day everyone.
