SOURCE: Check Engine light

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.

SOURCE: my 2001 Kia rio threw a P1166 code

Typically, that there's an issue with the Idle Air Control Valve. They're known for seizing/sticking on Kias.

It could also be the Mass Air Flow Sensor. They're known to be a little flaky on Kias. If someone confirms it's the MAF sensor, replace the wiring harness with it (trust me, worth it, as they're known issues too).

Another possibility is the Throttle Body Position Sensor. If it's hooped, replace it and the gasket. Yes, you guessed it, they're ALSO a known problem with Kias, particularly the Rios.

Yet another known problem is that some of these Rios left the factory with the breather and pcv tube hooked up into each other's connections. See if they're swapped and swap them back if neccessary.

Another factory issue is the timing sprocket set. Some Rios left the factory with one or both installed backwards (despite the very clear labelling stamped into the sprocket), which allows the belt to skip a tooth, and you end up with valve timing issues, and eventual cylinder head problems.

Bottom line is have someone look for these known issues first, because they're all fairly common, and it's usually some mixture of any number of them. Have whoever's doing the work on it check the camshaft seal and the intake air temperature sensor while they're in there- yup, more known issues with Rios- as well as the plugs (prone to carbon buildup in these engines) and do a pinout test on the ECM (prone to failure in the air/fuel metering capacity particularly).

SOURCE: how do i reset the radio once the pin code has

after 3 wrong attempts it locks you out. to reset, disconnect the battery terminals and hold them together for about 15 seconds, this will reset it to try again.

2008 Check Engine light is on I have 25.700 miles what can this be

It could be something as simple as a loose fuel cap. The light tells you there is a trouble code stored in the car's computer that is waiting to be read. Major auto parts stores have code readers and will read out your code for free. With the code you can start to diagnose the problem.

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.

Does the CEL come on at certain mile markers? Last night my 2002 KIA had its CEL come one as I hit 65000 miles. Car feels to be running perfectly fine. Is it just letting me know it needs its 65000 mile...

Hello! The CEL is the check engine light. When it illuminates it means your Kia has a trouble code. It is not related to a service mileage point.

Take your Rio to an auto parts store and ask for a free code check.
When you find out what trouble code or codes are being generated, send a comment to this solution and I will be more than happy to define and troubleshoot your problem.
