Question about 2003 Kia Rio

Kia rio squeaky belt burning rubber smell

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!

SOURCE: brakes make squeaky noises along with other noises

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.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

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.

Timing belt let go sitting at a idle what damage could it cause


Sadly the Kia Rio is an interference engine, this means probably at the very least you have suffered some valve damage. You may have also damaged the camsaft, pistons, and head. You won't really know until its taken apart.

Check engine light


go to Pep Boys and Auto Zone and have the code read for free.  and fix it now, as it doesn't sound like something you can wait on.
Also the oil change had absolutely nothing to do with the problems you are having now.
Cars cost money, and it doesn't sound like you are keeping up with the maintenance on this one, sadly you'll pay more in the end.

At times car can not run over 53mph.


u need a special test gauge, it hooks to a test port on the supply pipe to the engine fuel injectors's, looks like a metal tire valve, u may be able to borrow this fuel pressure test guage from Kragen or Autozone, call them and check.
