First check the oil and coolant levels. You may have a broken timing belt. White smoke is usually due to coolant burning in the combustion chamber. (Head gasket)

Rough idle, check engine light on. Kia Rio 1.6 L 2005


Could be many things but it sounds like your idle air control valve. It should be on top of the throttle body. I'm not sure on this vehicle. It is a accordian like diaphragm in a housing, They get clogged with carbon. Usually attached with 2 bolts and a sensor connector. Easily cleaned out with carb. cleaner. This will throw a code if the diaphragm is letting too much or too little air in to the fuel mixture. It may also be a vacuum leak. You can spray very short burst of ether around the intake manifold, if the engine races you have a vacuum leak. I have never had a fire but have always had a fire extinquisher within reach . USE COMMON SENSE.
Good luck. p.s. DON'T SMOKE AND KEEP CHILDREN AWAY!

Have an automatic transmission, 2001 Kio Rio. Problems when idling, sometimes high, sometimes low and will stall but starts right back up. I've replaced the Mass Air Sensor, spark plugs, air filter, coil....


It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

Engine racing at idle push on gass pedel engine dies


I'd look forat at the throttle position sensor, sounds like the engine computer has no idea what the throttle is doing-it is located right at the side of the throttle body, across from the 'butterfly' plate.

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.
