Why my 2002 kia rio stalles out everytime i step on the acceleration and keeps getting worse i changed spark pluggs and air filter and fuel filter please help me oh and everytime i go up hills i loss speed...


you need to check your fuel pressure at the rail with a gauge. But to me it sounds like the spark plug boots . If they crack or split it will cause symptoms just like yours, mostly shaking while under load. Since you already changed the plugs change the boots or wires too.

My car keep stalling in the mornings, but after i can get it to work its ok the rest of the day..why is it doing this?


something is damp in the morning causing weak spark. it dries out from the heat of operation
and good spark returns. call a dealer service department, see if this is a common problem, and if they have a cheap fix, such as a new set of plug wires, or some drying agent sprayed into a specific area under the hood.

My 2006 kia rio 5 has and intermittant engine miss. It never misses when the engine is cold, but once it warms up it will miss at idle and the check engine light will flash until the engine is reved up...


Hi, maybe it's the wires. Can you tell me if it's a random miss or specific to one particular cylinder? Do you have the trouble code? If it's random, it could be a lot of things.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

We have a 1990 lebaron 56000 miles when it gets cold outside,like35 degrees sometimes the headlights will not go on until after the car is fully warmed up. the hi beams will always work but the headlights...


the old chryslers were very suseptable to dampness esp at 35 deg after car warms up the damp wires would dry off and the problem would go away some time this also affected the ignition and car would not start on damp or rainy days as well
