Question about 2005 Kia Rio
First thought would be to check to see if there are any stored error codes. You will need access to a OBD II reader to access the cars computer. Many auto parts stores will do it for free, as will some nation wide repair shops such as AAMCO.
Based on the age of your car, most likely you need spark plugs and or ignition ignitors (photo)

go to checker and have them run the code for check engine light. it will probably come up as a lean code bank 1 or/and bank 2. on my x-type it was an o-ring in the intake that was cracked mechanic found it with by spraying carb and choke cleaner around the intake components.the shaking.... if it occurs at higher rpms is your car being in limp home mode i think about 3000 rpms will go away when intake problems are solved. car cutting off ? take it jag maybe a weak fuel pump,clogged jet pump or clogged fuel filter just did all of the above to my 02 x-type 3.0 sport w/ 75,000 miles.

It seems you may have a catalytic converter problem. Either the converter itself or one or more sensors. Take the car for a trouble code at an AutoZone or similar store for a free scan.

1st disconnect your battery
(Tools that I needed. 14mm socket for mounting bolts, 13 mm socket and a drop light. You need to jack up the front end pretty high both sides and put jack stands under each side. (extra precaution I put wood under the wheels because I don't like getting crushed. Slide under your car (bring a drop light) Look up and see your oil filter. Now look left and you will see the starter motor (oh yeah there is a pain in the as s bracket in the way) remove that bracket (14mm should be right) and then remove the bottom bolt of the starter (you may need a long socket extension here 8"?) The next set of bolts you have to get from up above that come from the other side. Get your light in there the one on the left side is easiest so get that last. The one on the right side will have a wiring harness running really close to it. Force your 14mm socket onto it with a 4 in extension. Back the bolt off till it spins a free but leave it in the hole. Remove the second one until you hear the unit fall. When putting the two bolts from the other side in, don't reef on them to get them super tight. Save your core so you can get some money back. Good repair manuel will cost 20 bucks, Haynes auto repair at your local auto parts store. good luck

Testimonial: "Fast Comeback. I think I will become a member here."
first you will have to find out what the light is all about it could be something as simple as a bad airfilter or something more complex like an o2 sensor you can go to auto-zone and they will check the light for free and tell you what the problem is once you do this if you like send me a message and ill tell you how to rectify the problem hope this helps you.
