If it is your first time having the timing belt changed, chances are the water pump is still in good enough shape to hold out until you are due for your next belt change. No sense throwing away money prematurely...

Images on how to change a knock sensor for 2003 rio kia


On 2003 Kia Rio the knock sensor is located under the intake manifold and must be changed from underneath the car. If you remove the oil filter it is directly above it and is in clear view once the oil filter is out of the way. The connector plugs in behind the intake manifold air breather on the top side. If you remove the air breather cover it will help you get to it. It's not Complicated it's Just a process Of Changing the Knock Sensor.

I am trying to change the spark plugs on a 2002 Kia rio what socket do I use to get them out?


Your standard spark plug socket size is a 5/8. Make sure that you buy one that is used for spark plug removal, these have a special rubber boot on the inside so that you don't accidently break the old plugs in half. Any auto parts store sells this socket.
