Question about Kia Rio
It may be as simple as your fuel filter. Try replacing it. If this solution doesn't work, check the fuel pump output pressure to see if you need to replace it. It might be the coil pack, it could be a broken wire or key switch short. Make sure the battery is fully charged, the alternator may not be charging the battery also, thus the stall. Change the fuel filter first, it's the most likely. Hope this helps. Good luck!

It is possible that the fuel pump has failed, turn the car to the on position and crawl under the car to see if you can hear it running. should be a low humming noise. if you dont hear it, have someone turn the jey all the way to the start position so the engine turns over and have someone use a hammer to tap on the bottom of the fuel tank. Sometimes this will cause the fuel pump to engage. Also, could you tell me if you have had your timing belt serviced. If not, you are well passed due. If the timing belt breaks, the car will completely stall and will not start back up.
