Question about Kia Rio
When starting the car the engine struggles like its not getting gas but idles shakily. Giving the car gas in drive results in little to no acceleration and a whole lot of noise
I have had this happen twice. First time was a clogged air cleaner, not the filter, but down in the tube below the cleaner. Mice got into it. Clean it out. Te other time was a collapsed muffler. This was an internal collapse and could not be seen. Both issues had to do with air flow, 1 into the engine, the other the exhaust out. The engine ran, but made a lot of noise. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hesitates on acceleration
Does the car always hesitate during acceleration? If it ALWAYS struggles when it starts or ALWAYS hesitates on acceleration then I would say the issue is fuel delivery. If the problems are more intermittent and come-and-go then it could be an electrical issue.
I would start by changing the fuel filter. Changing plugs, wires, cap, and rotor are all good things to do as your budget will allow. I doubt you will have to change your injectors.
If you end up replacing any rubber fuel line, be sure to use the high-pressure stuff made for use on fuel injected cars.
I hope this helps! -Nick

Definitely not the fuel pump. A fuel pump will either work, or it wont. It could be a fuel filter, though unlikely, again if it was clogged there would be nothing. Could be spark plugs/wires, a faulty coil pack, Could also be a handful of sensors (o2, MAF, are a few that come to mind). Does it have a manual transmission? If so can the car be started without engaging the clutch (in neutral)? If so check the 2 clutch sensors attached to the clutch pedal.
Probably a sensor. Go to Advanced Auto parts and have them pull the code. Then google it. Or check out Forums.vwvortex.com

Since you did not say what type of transmission you have i will suspect the clutch is slipping if it's a manual.
If it's an automatic, it could be several things. Low fluid level...clogged filter, fluid needs to be changed..transmission serviced...weak pump, bands/clutch packs worn...etc
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Jeep Cherokee Limited Crank, No Start
Q. Hi! The Jeep has periods when it will not start for a couple days (cranks fine but won't fire), then it will mysteriously start again. A friend suggested that it may be the CPS - I checked it has 200 oM - when I'm cranking by hand it's little bit changing - it should be OK. But again, wouldn't this also effect the engine during those times that it was running?
This problem occurs during rainy and sunny weather so I don't think it's a moisture or water intrusion problem. Is there any part of the ignition system that only affects starting that could be causing this problem?
"I am having the same or similar problem with my wifes 1990 Cherokee. I have found a place that tests the ICM. It may take a while to find a place in your area. I suggest you go in person and talk to the people in your better parts stores.
I have been unsuccessful so far in finding the fault. My ICM has been tested twice and passed both times. I have power to the ICM and the coil checks within parameters. This has been a very frustrating problem for me. I'm about ready to drive it off a cliff and call it a day. Good luck."
So my question is; what is the reason of that? Thanks for help...
A. This was a widespread problem for Chrysler and they issued a couple of TSBs to address the problem. The first was:
1989 MJ & XJ Bodies
4.0L No-Start, Hard Restart, or Engine Die-Out. Vehicles Equipped With Automatic Transmission Only.
Date: December 29, 1989 No.: 18-57-89 (C18-23-9) P-14 Body Code Legend:
MJ - COMANCHE (RWD, 4WD) XJ - CHEROKEE/WAGONEER (RWD, 4WD)
Some 1989 vehicles equipped with the 4.0L engine and automatic transmission may experience an engine no-start, hard restart, or an engine die-out. This condition may be caused by low signal strength from the crank position sensor due to a larger than desired distance to the flywheel sensing ring.
Check to see if the vehicle has a slotted crank position sensor:
1 Crank Position Sensor (slotted) P/N 83100067 1 Crank Position Sensor Grommet P/N 83100068 REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1 ECU (Automatic Transmission) P/N 53007842 1 ECU (Manual Transmission) P/N 53007843 1 Mopar Choke and Linkage Cleaner P/N 4549619
