This could be a bad thing or it could just be the guage failed. I would bring it in to dealer and hope you are under waranty meaning under 100,000 miles. And single owner.

SOURCE: 2002 Kia Rio runs rough when idling

well spend some change and have a simple tune-up.  Plugs and filters and readjust the idle.

SOURCE: car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

2005 KIA Rio belts have been making noise. Now check engine light is on and I get codes p0101, p0101 pending, and p0170 pending?


The belt tensioner is defective. It automatically keeps the belt at the proper tension. P0101 - MAF sensor (mass air flow sensor) or circuit problem. P0107 - MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure sensor) signal is low.

Hi I have an intermittant problem with my Kia Rio, 2003


sound like one of 2 possible problems bad gas, try filling up at a different brand shell vs citco etc.clean o ring and fiiler neck after you tank up ,insure cap is on tight
with the car at an idle gently tap the mass air flow sensor with the plastic end of scew driver. if the idle changes , sputters ,etc you can try removing and cleaning with cleaner for mass air flows , if you cant find that you can try sea foam in the spray can . make sure dry re-install ,with a good o-ring at this point only you can judge wether it needed cleaned and solved the problem or needs replaced. if you tap it again and it still sputs or idle drops i would replace it , its going bad but not bad enough to register and send a code to turn on check engine

Kia Rio cutting off


im assuming that changed the oil unit you mean sending unit ? if so could be electric short in the pick tail or worse wiring harness. second there is also possoble vacum leak .third while unit was being replaced something didnt get put back or got knocked loose. created a new problem. most times as thing are going bad they dont register until it is a prolonged problem as it took 2 days for the check engine to go out that also might have been normal. you might also notice while sitting at park when you turn the wheel you will notice ia differance in the idle, if its almost stalling then its probley your idle,needs re set, or your idle controle valve is going bad ,did it get checked or cleaned when they serviced the throttle body. and also could be your mass air flow sensor going bad or need cleaned

2002 kia rio stalls when coming to a stop if the gas is not applied


My personnel fix for this.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
