    the fuel filter has not been replaced but my fiance is working on that as we speak.

    well the check engine light is on and the acceleration hesitation is the only difference that i noticed. it feels as if the car is struggling to go as if its pulling a tractor trailer

Your post is 4 months old.i stared last week. there are 5000 un answered kia's if you still have the problem. do you have a check engine light on yet ? if so take it to an auto parts store that offers free check , write down the code and the meaning. and repost with that info.otherwise its a guessing game. could be mass air flow,knock sensor,throttle positon sensor, temp sensor etc etc.

SOURCE: gear box oil filler plug - kia rio 2004

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...

2004 kia optima. Acceleration sluggish ... suddenly today while driving. Seems to not want to go beyond 20-25 mph Flooring the accelerator seems to take rpm only to 3 k


try unplugging the switch to the mass/map sensor as well as the crank sensor and blowing them both out with break cleaner or an air compressor. thats what i did with my kia rio today and its been running great.
