Question about 2003 Kia Rio
I have a Kia Rio that is about 7 yrs and recently started giving engine problems since the chk oil light came on even when the oil was good.... i changed the oil unit and after 2 days the light came off but since the light came on the car started cutting off sometimes even while driving. I had the throttle body serviced twice and the units on it and at the back replaced. It started to perform better but sometimes while driving or idling the engine sounds like its going to cut off... like something does not turn over as it should. I am wondering if sometimes the engine is being starved off fuel..... cause once im slowing down/turning a corner it starts to sputter and sometimes it cuts off or it sounds like its going to but then the engine gets powerful again. There are also times when the car cuts off without warning while driving slowly. Please help!!! Also note that i checked the computer and it shows no problem.
Im assuming that changed the oil unit you mean sending unit ? if so could be electric short in the pick tail or worse wiring harness. second there is also possoble vacum leak .third while unit was being replaced something didnt get put back or got knocked loose. created a new problem. most times as thing are going bad they dont register until it is a prolonged problem as it took 2 days for the check engine to go out that also might have been normal. you might also notice while sitting at park when you turn the wheel you will notice ia differance in the idle, if its almost stalling then its probley your idle,needs re set, or your idle controle valve is going bad ,did it get checked or cleaned when they serviced the throttle body. and also could be your mass air flow sensor going bad or need cleaned
