Question about 2004 Kia Rio

4 Answers

I have a Kia Rio 2004, I can't start it. It stopped on my at an intersection. It cranks but it won't turn over. I was thinking it was the battery, but I wasn't because a jump didn't get it to start. I was going to check the fuel filter but I don't know how to get the pump out. Can you help me?

Check fuses for fuel pump and ignition. You need to determine whether you are getting spark to your sparkplugs, then fuel. When you turn your key on , you should hear the fuel pump humm for a couple of seconds, to build up fuel pressure. If you don't hear it, suspect fuel problem.

There are several things that can cause this. Worse case scenario, the timing belt broke and you are going to have one heck of a time getting everything repaired. Before you go pulling the fuel pump and everything, check your fuses, on the engine valve cover there may be a small circlular rubber plug you can remove, remove this and while looking at the hole have some one turn the engine over. If, while the engine is turning, you don't see the sprocket that is visible once you remove the plug turning STOP. The timing belt has broken. You will need to rebuild the engine at least partially and depending on what kind of damage was done may have to remove the cylinder head and have it repaired as well. Another step to verify is to do a compression check on the motor and see if you have compression on all cylinders. No compression after a situation like this can also indicate a broken timing belt. Unlike most v-6 motors the typical 4 cylinder uses a belt instead of a chain and is only really visible after partial disassembly. With the electronic coil pack you can no longer just look at the Distributor to see if it turns.

I had a similar problem with my car Rio not starting. It was NOT a serious problem. It turns out the diagnostic system sensed the gas cap wasn't on tight enough.

The solution was to tighten the gas cap AND diconnect the positive battery cable for a few seconds and then reconnect. This resets the diagnostic system which senses the correct pressure and then allows you car to start.

Ridiculous but true.

Jus changed thermostat and radiator on my 04 kia rio now wont start...?


Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after you put all the coolant in?
Some cars may not start, because the computer thinks there's no coolant in the engine.
Hope this helps.

2004 Kia Rio turns over but won't start.


These are coil packs,the most likely problem will be the crank sensor,or the cam sensor,these are what trigger the pulse for spark,and injector pulse.

MY 2004 RIO STOPPED RUNNING AT A STOP SIGN AND WOULD NOT RESTART.. TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T START, SOUNDS LIKE IT ISN'T GETTING GAS.


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.

2004 KIA RIO-ENGINE WILL NOT CRANK


I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck
