Hi! Sounds ike there might be a problem with the engine general state of tune. I would start with monitoring the manifold vacuum and looking into an ignition tuneup as well as a set of filters.

My 2003 Kia Rio has almost 200,000 miles on it... 4 months ago I drove it over 2,000 miles with no problems. Before leaving, I took it in to my mechanic to have them change the oil and oil filter, and just generally check it over... fluid levels, brakes, tires ~ basic stuff.
Good luck!

Where is the knock sensor located on 2003 Kia Rio


2003 kia rio, It is located under the intake manifold. Get underneath the car, pull the oil filter...it is right above it and in clear view with the oil filter out of the way. The connector plug is up top behing the air breather on the firewall.
