I own a 2002 Kia Rio RXV and my husband decided to change my spark plugs. When he pulled them out of the engine, they were all covered in oil. What would cause this and is it worth fixing?


You have a 4 cylinder and there are seals in the cover around the spark plug holes. You can replace these with a rocker arm cover gasket set. Costs about $25.00. The oil does not hurt the sparkplug, but over time it will affect the plug wires/ boots and cause a misfire. these are not hard to replace. Your call.

I have a kia rio 2005 wagon is standard i acelerate but dont run and if run when i stop then turn off


does it shake really bad, like a missfire? If so, replace your spark plug wires, if that fixes the problem, also replace the sparkplugs.

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.

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.
