Question about 2003 Kia Rio

2 Answers

Manual transmission A friend brought his car to us and said it was missing and there was smoke rolling out from underneath the car before he parked it a few days ago. We fixed the miss with new plugs and wires. Then we found transmission oil in the bell housing. I would assume this is what was causing the smoke. Is there a front seal in the transmission that could go bad?

Are you sure its trans oil and not motor oil i think its your rear main seal leaking when you take off the trans you should be able to see rear of engine behind flywheel the seal is there as well if you want to change the trans seal at the same time if not sure as well before taking anything apart clean as much as you can around where the leak is and check for the spot thats leaking

There is a trans pump seal between the tourque converter and the pump. I would degrease the entire engine (including the trans)first and put some oil dye in the trans to see if the leak is actually comming from there. It's possible but unlikely.

SOURCE: rocky idle, when in gear no power,slow rpm,backfires in front

In order to resolve this problem you are going to need a different set of plugs even though the smart parts store mechanics say the computer says you need whatever plugs they want to sell you, you need to go with your OEM plugs if not sure call your local dealer and ask the parts dept. what is the name brand and specific length plug you need for your car when a plug is either too short or too long it will cause this problem if they say you have the correct ones then I would check the firing order to ensure the spark plug wires haven't been improperly installed meaning the firing order is off. I noticed you said the plugs were dirty if that was the case and plugs and wires are correctly installed and proper plug then I would have the fuel injectors cleaned try using some lucas fuel cleaner and stabilizer. If you feel wally world put too much oil in check your dipstick on level ground it will let you know if that is the case I would immediately take the car into dealer and have them check the oil pump to ensure it isn't damaged from over working or caused any other damages in your engine take the estimate with explanation of what caused the problem from the dealer to the walmart service manager where you had the tune up done to start the claims process to have them foot the repair cost or for reimbursement and demand a refund .This should get you back up and running correctly. much success and good luck with this. Please Rate Me. And you can always ask me. wutxtye0rjd9d9ekmodqt1eoxkvn9hr9qjz1l3dabggyud7sdgr36czsrfxqenadhnijx9nfayi+sz1sug0aaaaasuvork5cyii=

SOURCE: miss firing on 1, 3 5 cylinders

Firstly I would check/clean that big multi plug on the right handside on top of the engine.This plug gives problems and probably disturbed during timing belt change,then sell it!

SOURCE: I had the oil changed and the manual transmission

I don't believe the transmission fluid being changed would have anything to do with the engine being dead. You could have a tranny with no fluid in it and the engine would still run. Wondering if your engine oil got changed correctly. I would pull out the dipstick for the engine oil and see how much is in there. If this is an error from an oil change place that has caused your engine to die because of their negligence, then you may have a legal issue on your hands. Good Luck.

Sounds like your linkage adjustment slipped. Chock your tires...jack up if you can't fit underneath it...have a helper move shifter back and forth so you can locate where it attaches to transmission. When you find it, have your helper move it from low to park slowly. When you see what way the piece on trans is moving, loosen the adjustment screw, manually place trans in park, then tighten adjusting screw.

My trans fluid poured out


Determine where the fluid is coming from. Start with checking the transmission lines going to the front of the vehicle. There should be 2 that connect to a transmission cooler or to the radiator, typically on the passenger side. If one of these started leaking it may have sprayed transmission fluid onto your engine, causing the smoke.

Truck rolls backward in park..runs and shifts fine just no true park


sounds like the parking pinn or [pawl] Inspect the parking pawl as it is likely broken. The pawl is a metal pin that engages the transmission's gear when the transmission is in the "Park" position. The pawl manually locks the transmission's gears and is located on the interior side of the transmission's manual control linkage

Can't take it out of park


Did you happen to park on a slight hill? If so, try having some friends push the car upwards on the hill while you sit in the driver's seat and try to take it out of park. Be very ready to press the brake as soon as you feel it release! You wouldn't want to roll over your friends feet! :) The car should only need to move a few inches to get the "bind" out.

Rolls in park


If you shift to PARK position, the auto transmission (if you have one) shift to a blocked mode. The blocker is located inside the auto trans. This is a very hard piece of metal the hooks into a gear and blocks the transmission. If that part is broken, the car rolls and it takes only some drive cycles that this little item will wreck your transmission completely. If you have a manual transmission, maybe the clutch need to be replaced. You can check the clutch: accelerate fast in first or sec. gear. If the engine turns up without speed acceleration, replace the clutch.

2002 Land Rover Discovery rolls when it is in PARK.


It is known as the Parking Pawl assembly, and requires removal of the gearbox from the vehicle along with the transfer box. You then remove the extension housing (requiring new bolts) and then replace the park lock gear and o'ring.
