SOURCE: replacing the starter on my 2005 Kia Rio

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

Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

Where is the drain plug exactly on a 2003 kia rio?


For the 1.6l engines:

Looking at the engine from the front end (e.g. from the right fender), the drain plug is on the left below cylinder #1.

From beneath the car, looking towards the front of the vehicle, you'll find it on the right had end of the engine block, at the back (nearest the passenger compartment. (see image below)

You'll need a 17mm wrench or socket.

The Oil filter is above it and towards the center of the block.
