Question about 2004 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I recently purchased a 2004 Kia Rio. It is in excellent condition. A week ago, before registering it, we had an inspection and oil change done. Everything runs great, there are no problems with this car whatsoever. Last night the check engine light came on after starting the vehicle and stayed on, for no apparent reason. Nothing has been done different, we checked all fluids, lines and anything that may make the light come on. We were told by other Kia owners that after an oil change, if the car is not reset, this light will come on. Can you help? Thank you.

Hi:
I have not heard of an oil change causing a check engine light.

A good plan is to have your Kia scanned, to see what the code is that tripped the check engine light. Most auto parts stores, such as autozone, will do this for free.
Some codes are very simple, such as a loose gas cap.

Once you find out what the code is, you can then make an educated decision on what to do.

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!

When does the belt and timing belt need changed? How many miles for each?


On the 1.6L engine:
The timing belt should be replaced at 90,000 miles.
The drive belt should be inspected for wear or cracking every 30,000 miles. However I recommend that the drive belt be visually inspected every time the oil change is performed. It only takes a second to look at it and it keeps you aware of the belts condition on a more regular basis. This is important because there are certain conditions that can accelerate a belt's deterioration.

Engine shaking after timing belt replaced


No repair should only last three weeks...don't touch anything and have the shop that did the work come and get it. I have lots of ideas but it will need to be checked over to verify them. Rather than comment on the "maybe" of this, have them check it out. Any reputable shop will be more than willing to do what's needed...Bad jobs ruin that reputation!
