    When you say part stores, do you mean places like Sprint Auto Parts?

The only way to find the code and also the same way to shut the engine light off is to code a code scanner or obd2 scanner. This reads engine codes and shuts the light off. Many part stores will do this for free. Most shops charge around $40

    yes, just about any part store. I know bumper to bumper, advanced auto, napa, and more.

Kia rio oil overfilled 1.5 quarts by dealer

Hi I doubt it will do any harm, return the car to dealer and request answers plus request they clean the engine compartment and the car as it looks and smells awful. In future make sure you shop around before having your car dealer serviced. Jp.

2006 kia rio misfire

Could be a weak coil on number 4 cyl.
Switch coils between 3 and 4 and see if the code now reads #3 misfire,then you will know you need a coil.
Maybe the check engine light will stay off after the switch.

Why is my orange engine light on constantly on my kia rio

If it is the check engine light then you need to get the vehicle scanned at either a place like autozone, the dealer, or any local independent repair facility. The light is telling you that the computer has stored a fault code and you need a scanner to obtain that code. After you get the code post it and then we can go from there.

2006 kia rio check engine light on and code P0455

A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes2.gif, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum2.gif

A Warning light on my kia rio appears occasionally.Shaped like an engine block and says CHECK.I don,t have a manual & I live in Spain..Thanks, Tom Rooney

Tom - that is your check engine light. Seems odd that is is intermittent when coming on. Usually they stay continually lit until checked/problem repaired and the code removed from your computer by a qualified service technician. Regardless, you need to get your car in for service.

Check engine light came on my 2006 Kia Rio : diagnostic code p0496. What is this and what does it mean?

that code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.
