Sounds to me like your idle speed control sensor is going bad.

Brake pedal goes to the floor. I have a 2009 Kia Rio automatic. Has 27,000 miles on it. Basically looks new every where, under hood etc.. There have been at least two times that the brake pedal has...

you can call any dealership and give them you're vin number to see if there is any recalls on the break system. something that new would most likely not need a knew master cylinder or break buster. can also have breaks bleed. if there is an air bubble in the line this could happen. mechanic shops should be able to bleed breaks for 40-50 dollars. i would recommend picking one you trust so they don't rip you off.

you don't say whether it's diesel or petrol, If diesel it has a vacuum pump to give pedal assistance, these have a valve in the pump that can cause such a problem, if however it's petrol I would suspect a master cylinder fault. Regards Mike

Problem with Automatic Transmission in 2002 Kia Rio Cinco

Have you checked the fluid level?Was there any oil leak spots under the car?
Correct any low fluid level and give it a try.
If the fluid is at the correct level,disconnect the battery for 10 mins then reconnect and try it again,if it still won't work you may have to have a transmission expert take a look at it.
You can put in a used transmission if needed and not spend lots of $$$ for a rebuilt trans,or just buy another complete vehicle to drive and not fix your 2002.
