Run the fault codes as it may be in limp mode and what you changed has no bearing on the fault

SOURCE: Pops out of 5th gear

This is most likely not a linkage issue. This is an internal transmission issue. Inside the transmission there are some brass pieces that synchronize the gears when you depress the clutch. This is also a tell tell sign that the one between 4th and 5th gear is worn out or completely chewed up. The transmission will need to be repaired or completely rebuilt depending on how much damage has been done to the internal components. sorry about delivering bad news but that's the facts on vehicles that have been driven hard. Hope this information helps you. Good luck.

I cant tell you why but I do have a solution for you to try, I had a similar fault on a fiat punto last year, I disconnected the battery for an hour and then put it back and the car started, Im still puzzled by this but It may work for you, worth ago, make sure you have your radio code before removing the battery

Hope this helps

Will not run over 25 mph

check your speed sensor and your crank position sensor. I did a clutch job on my RIO and forgot to plug the crank sensor in all the way and it wouldn't go above 25 Mph. If that doesn't work, try replacing your Mass air flow sensor, it sets on top of your throttle body and bolt to your air box.

How to chang timing belt 2005 Kia Rio

2005 ?? and only 70k ,i dont think it needs changing yet till about 120k depending on your local ambient climate ,if in a hot dry area then 7 yrs old yes change but if in a more temperate climate then it will be good for at least till its 10 yrs old ,modern belts are far superior to older ones from the 90s ,Then entrust it to a mechanic because one slip up can ruin the engine ,i would not recomend this job to a weekend mechanic who needs to ask on here how to do it ,yes i can tell you and its not difficult but the consequences of making a mistake ??

Odds are, the O2 sensor is just detecting an imbalance in the Air/Fuel ratio, therfor causing your O2 sensor code.

Start by changing your spark plug wires, if it hasn't been done in a while.

I changed my kia rio timing belt and lined everything up perfectly but now the timing is off slightly how do i change the timing?

no you didnt line every thing up of the cams turned on you or you had the belt slack in btween the cams or on the side of the engine that the tensioner is NOT on. you will have to redo. you have to instal a tool to lock the 2 cams together to prevent turning on thier own.they dont like to stay were you have to have them
