Question about 2005 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I just drove my kia rio to work, got out, went inside for 10 minutes, came back out, turned key to start car and all the bells and whistles come on like it normally does when I start my car but then it just sounds like a playing card that is flapping against the spokes of a bicyle wheel. Will not turn over just makes this noise.

    IF NEW SOLENOID COME WITH NEW STARTER.THEN YOU COULD HAVE BAD BATTERY GROUND CABLE OR BATTERY IS WEAK. CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS.

Why doesn't it start??


I guess you are right and it has something to do with having the transmission changed, rather than the transmission itself.

I can't help regarding what is wrong but if you paid good money to have the transmission changed the responsibility for rectifying the fault is the person or company that caused it.

I suggest you go and have a meaningful discussion...

Hi i had sa me issue jump started my kia rio radio display was blank. To fix open your fusebox inside the car Pull out both audio fuses your fuse puller should be in the fuse box under the hood. Yes you have two fuse boxes. One inside you car and one under the hood with your engine. wait few minutes say five... Put the fuse back in. Btw its not neccesary to pull the fuse all the way out. Your radio should show cde error... Now you will need to put in your four digit pin...gluck thanks to the guy on the internet who said pull out the memory fuse... Not that i understood till now.

Smell of gas and whistling sound


Its all connected.
The computer uses a solenoid to vent the fumes from the tank when the engine is running.
The vapor canister holds the fumes until the vent valve is opened.
The computer tried to vent the tank and something went wrong.
It could be from the excessive heat or something with the venting system.
A mechanic would test the venting system.

My car wont start


The whistling belt means the engine doesn`t crank the alternator (what generates the power).So when you jump started the car it was going for a little while and that time the engine sucked out all the power from the battery the battery went flat and the car stopped. You have to take it to mechanic eather change or just tension the belt. Hope that helps.

Tuff start ,then no start


If fuel filter hasn't been changed lately I would start with that, as well as adding some gasline antifreeze with moisture remover, or "heet" (brand name). do you always re-fuel at same place? Not sure where your at, but you did say, cold, so moisture in your tank, from warm & cold temperatures would definately cause problems similar to what your experiencing. Do you hear any hum from rear of car when you cycle key to on, but not start, if yes, turn it off & back on, 2 or 3 times & listen for same, then try to start & see if it makes a difference. Try the additive first, as I said, but if that doesn't do it, try to get a fuel pressure test done before & after filter change, or ideal would be when it won't start, as we all know, it won't do when mechanic has it. Let's hope filter cures it.
