Question about Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Kia Rio..my check engine light came on so I took it to Auto Zone and they gave me a code that says P0455..something to do with emissions. I did everything they told me to do and then some...now every time I go to accelerate my car kind of "boggs" then my gas light starts to blink..but I have a full tank of gas. Any ideas as to what is wrong with it?

That code means that there is a big leak in the evaporative emissions control system. What did you attempt to do to repair this? If you replaced the fuel cap, what brand did you use? KIA has spring loaded caps that are known to fail pretty easily.

pull the E.F.I. fuse located under the hood on the drivers side, if there is more than 1 efi fuse pull them both along with the E.T.C.S. fuse (if there is one) for 1 minute or so. That should do it

SOURCE: what those code p1441 manufacturer control auxiliary emission controls mean

what you want to do is take it to nissan and scan it with the consult2 diagnostic system to tell you which of the many things in the system have failed.
the EGR is the most common.

SOURCE: 2006 kia rio check engine light on and code P0455

A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:

  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

2001 Kia Rio , driving along when suddenly check engine light comes on, loss of power shifting problems?


Could be a transmission problem, or other fault. Best recommendation I can give you is get the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle and if an Auto Zone is close get them to read the fault code for you. That will tell you what the problem is and give you an idea if it's something you can fix.

2001 kia rio check engine light is on and car seems to be running fine. has been on for aboutr 3 days cant figure out why?


Go to a auto parts store like Kragen/Napa/Chief's/Pep Boys/Auto Zone and have the codes read. Your car's "brain" is trying to tell you something.

Those places will read it for free by the way.
