Question about Kia Rio
I just changed the fuel filter on my 2004 kia rio. I am getting gas to the fuel rail when i turn the car on and let the pump run for a couple of seconds. I can not get the car to start though. Any ideas?
It sounds like a fuel pressure problem.Although you have fuel to the rail the injectors will not pulse unless the pressure is right.Any chance the line got some dirt in it,the line got crimped,or perhaps(I,m not being funny because I'VE done this )put the filter in backwards. good luck

Testimonial: "Thank you for your response. Yes I would agree with you that is is a fuel pressure problem. I did put the filter in the correct way. The way that it is set up, there is only one way to put it in, assuming I made a good connections. I was careful not to get dirt in the line, but that does not mean that I didn't get any in. I have had a couple of people tell my my pump just is not putting enough out (I tested right after the pump and it shot a couple of inches, not sure if that is good enough?). Ran an OBD2 test on it tonight and didnt see anything. When I was looking at the line by the fuel rail I never had any kind of pressure up there. Sorry if I was rambling, I was just trying to give you more information. Thank you again for your response and if you think of anything please let me know"
