Question about 2003 Kia Rio
Long history of squeaky a belt when the car starts up and idling, or really 50% of the time I press in the clutch. This morning it started to smell like burning rubber, which I think is due to the excessive squeaking (90% of the time I pressed the clutch in). When my Dad looked at it recently to replace the belt (due to squeakiness) I was told that the belt wasn't so much the issue, as it is what the belt resides on. I'm sorry my knowledge of cars goes as far as oil/filter changes, tire rotation, and brake replacements. What part could that be so I can try to research repairs/parts/mechanic rates/etc.? Other than the aforementioned issues, it drives fine. No shutting off issues or battery problems. Recently had an oil change. Thank you!

There are a numer of reasons brakes will squeak or squeal. Sometimes excessive dust acculation wll cause it, yet another cause is the TYPE of material the brake shoes are made of. The harder the brake shoe material , the more tendency to squeak / squeal. My suggestion is use high quality brakes such as OE brakes. Hope this helps.

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.
