SOURCE: 2001 kia rio fuel pump does not work

Are you positive its the fuel pump? Have you tried running the pump with the return line off to see if it pumps fuel? They don't always have to make a noise.

SOURCE: 2002 kia rio fuel pump not starting

you may have to get a new wiring harness for it or create a jumper to run to the fuse box so that it only comes on when the car is on and shuts off with the car.

I am testing cam position sensor 01 KIA rio, positive and (grd) on the harness with ignition off is13.005 k ohms with ignition on is 12 to 14 v. The signal is 5v constant no fluctuations.

youll need to temp disable the ign coils to prevent starting , but u need to manually bump the engine to turn by starter then youll see 5v change from positive to ground with each rev of engine , but easiest way to test it is set volt meter for frequency and measure it with engine running (carefull!!!!) the frequency should change regularly with engine speed and not wildly jump around at set speed , if so it's bad !!!!!

O2 kia rio stalls after three seconds

So, it will start right up with no issues after it stalls? Could be a few things. You may have faulty O2 sensors causing the fuel trim to cause problems, it could be a bad/dirty MAF sensor that just needs a cleaning, or you may have an Idle Air control valve that isn't functioning properly. Some of these things you can do yourself, but you'll need a scanner that can see live data to look at the others.

2005 Kia rio cinco just stalled out coming home from work. Won't start at all now...just cranks. Had to tow home. No check engine light came on and no code on code reader. Ideas?

Check the fuel pump and all fuel related items, and check the coil pack. Check fuse's for same.
Remember, NO air, or NO fuel, or NO spark equals NO run.

I have a 2002 Kia Rio. It started trying to stall when going into slow traffic or at stop signs. Now it is hard to start when it is cold. I have had the fuel filters changed, the crank sensor replaced,...

This is likely going to be the Pre cat that is connected to the exhaust just off of the exhaust manifold attatched to the cylinder head. These were a little problematic for plugging and causing exactly what you are describing. Find a trusted exhaust shop in your area and have them inspect. Once the pre cat has been unistalled and the engine ran, it should clear up and run good proving the repair. Install a new one and enjoy that little car. Let me know what is found.

buy some brake clean. spray a little in throttle body. if it starts and stalls you need a fuel pump or you lost power to the fuel pump. If nothing changes you may have a bad crank sensor or ignition issue.
