Question about 2003 Kia Rio
My daughter (who lives with me), was driving her car 2 days ago, and it died while driving. She coasted into a parking lot, where she tried to start it. My brother went to help her..checked the gas, oil, battery, etc. All fine. We had it towed home today, and the driver said it sounds like the starter, maybe a bolt fell out. She does not have an owners manual, and can't find anywhere to look this up. I would like to be able to fix this myself. She is a full time student with a baby, and we can't afford to take it in. I really need some advice since she has to use the car in the morning to go to school. Thank You very much! I have a similar situation. The electrical still works, but the vehicle sounds like it is getting no gas. 2003 Kia Rio battery is good, fuses are good, starter is engaging flywheel, but no spark at the sparkplug can any one help!
Check gas filter replace it...that all u have to do....it did happend to me before

Hmm, sorry about your situation.
Two issues you have raised for help: 1) the probable causes of the sudden failure of the car; and 2) the loss of the owner's manual.
I have two links to two articles that specifically deal with these two issues, luckily!
Your car's sudden failure while driving is probably the malfunctioning of the connector of the electrical ignition system. See this diagnostic article:
As to getting another copy of your car's owner's manual, review this article as to the possible sources for getting it:
