Cylinder #1 misfire 2001 kia rio

My daughter has a 2001 Rio, and the engine has a bad shake at idle, so far I've replace the motor mounts, both belts, and did a complete tune up on it. It still shows a misfire on #1 cylinder and still shakes at idle. Also the beep tone for accessories will not stop the whole time the car is running. I've pretty much reached the end of my troubleshooting knowledge and need either a bigger brain or better hands. Thanks for any suggestions.

You forst need to see if that cylinder is getting fuel, this requires an injector flow test be run by a dealer or a well equipped shop, also you at home can check for intake manifold vauum leaks with a can of carburetor spray. You should also run a compression test on all cylinders and see if that one cylinder is lower than 5% from the hightest reading.

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.

Engine misfire from 1 & 4 changed spark


Did you use the right plugs?
Pull them all out, inspec, them for phisical damage.
Son put theplug for the 2.4 instead of the plugs for the 2.2 in his cavalier and he only clipped one with a piston (Missfire)
Do you have the fireing order correct?

I need to replace the motor mounts on my daughter's Kia Rio Cinco (2002), but can't find a repair manual for the car. I've done motor mounts in other cars and they were easy. Any idea if there are any...


The problem with most modern cars is that you have to lift the entire engine from it's casing to get to the mounts especialy the transmision mount.
