Question about 2002 Kia Rio
There are not any do it yourself manuels on the market , for the 2000 thru 2005 i myself own a 2003 , its hard to get parts and help the only real place to get all that you need is at a kia dealership. normaly the clutch is a piece of cake .but i will not even attemp it . most of the parts i have been replacing have caused me to have to buy and fix something else ,stuff breaks easy, example i tried to adjust the idle by loosening the throttle stop screw and making a quarter turn . something i should have not done .it has to be set while on the computer and the threads were extra fine and metric ,i even whent to a machine shop and they could not even get an acurate mesurement to make me a new screw because i striped out the thread ,so i had to buy a used throttle from the junk yard and replace the whole thing. my advice take it to kia and pay alot

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.
You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.
If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Rio clutch given out?
your clutch wheel is completely burnt out do not try to drive your car anymore if you do you will damage the fly wheel. if you have the experience you can order a clutch kit that comes with clutch wheel pressure plate and throwout bearing and install it yourself. if not then it is a very difficult job and you will need to have it worked on in an auto shop. for info and repairs for your car go to autozone.com sign up its free then click on repair manuals you will find all of your info there....good luck
