SOURCE: fuel filter

first, you have to drain the oil from the drain plug located at the bottom of the oil pan,

after all of the oil have been drain, tighten back the drain plug bolt.

then remove the old oil filter by using a filter wrench, you would need this wrench because it is very hard to remove by plain hands. the oil filter is located at the bottom of the engine or sometimes at its side.

after removing the old one, apply a thin coat of new oil to the rubber o-rings of the new oil filter before inserting just to make a good seal as you tighten it.

now open the oil filler cap at the top of the engine and pour the exact amount of new oil that was specified in your book. and also the correct type of oil that it uses.

then start the engine for 5 mins, turn t off and check the amount of oil at the dip stick. add if necessary..

i hope i was able to fix ur problem...

tnx 4 using fixya

Images on how to change a knock sensor for 2003 rio kia


On 2003 Kia Rio the knock sensor is located under the intake manifold and must be changed from underneath the car. If you remove the oil filter it is directly above it and is in clear view once the oil filter is out of the way. The connector plugs in behind the intake manifold air breather on the top side. If you remove the air breather cover it will help you get to it. It's not Complicated it's Just a process Of Changing the Knock Sensor.

O2 sensors in general are not "cleanable". If they have failed than they are typically replaced.
