Sadly the Kia Rio is an interference engine, this means probably at the very least you have suffered some valve damage. You may have also damaged the camsaft, pistons, and head. You won't really know until its taken apart.

It could bend valves in the cyclinder head, due to piston's hitting the valves.

My 1995 subaru legacy wont idle after changeing timeing belt


If the vehicle was idling proper before timing belt replacement, it is possible the valve timing is not correct due to belt not being installed/lined up properly. If belt was changed because it was broken, chances are there is valve damage internal to the engine causing this issue

Timing belt idler pull-up broke replaced with kit witch inc.waterpump,idle pull-up,tension pully and belt.linned up marks turns over but won't crank


You aren't giving us details on the vehicle. What is the manufacturer, year, model and engine size? It is possible that when the timing belt broke that there was internal damage done to the engine as many are interference engines, meaning that if the timing belt breaks the pistons and valves will collide, causing bent valves and/or broken pistons. This will cause loss of compression and a no-start condition. Assuming you have the belt installed properly, check the engine compression. If it is low, then you'll know you trashed the innards and will need to disassemble and repair the damaged parts.

Car will not start, not even jumping it


SOUND LIKE A DEAD BATTERY BUT CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS.IF NOT BATTERY DEAD NEED TO BE CHECK AND REPLACE.MAKE SURE BATTERY CABLES TIGHT AND BATTERY CABLES AND BATTERY POST CLEAN FREE FROM CORROSSION.AFTER REPLACING BATTERY MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BATTERY. WITH ENGINE IDLING BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD READ 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. MEANS ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BATTERY. IF NOT CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE AND CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES, MAKE SURE WIRES NOT FRAYED OR BROKEN. IF ALL IS GOOD MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT TENSION CORRECT.MAKE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER NOT BROKEN OR DAMAGE CAUSING DRIVE BELT TO SLIP OR CHECK ALTERNATOR CHECK ALTERNATOR PIVOT BOLT MAKE SURE NOT LOOSEN CAUSING TOO MUCH SLACK IN DRIVE BELT CAUSING BELT TO SLIP.WARNING TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TO REPLACE THE BATTERY BECAUSE IF RADIO WAS LEFT ON WHILE BATTERY WAS DEAD WHEN YOU INSTALL BATTERY CABLES THE POWER SURGE WILL DAMAGE RADIO.

I have 1996 Golf Cl just bought today.It has an erractic idle that is so bad that just sitting it will idle from 600 to 1400 rpms but never staeady.The battery light also flashes. The guy Ibought it...


First, monitor the alternator output voltage. If it is all over the map, you may have a bad voltage regulator. Poorly regulated voltage can confuse the engine computer with bad sensor readings; this could account for the irregular behavior. In particular, the voltage should not exceed 14 V. If this is the case, have the battery checked for damage also.

On the other hand, this may be an effect and not a cause; low idle speed can cause the alternator to drop out and turn on the battery light.

A worn timing belt/chain will make the spark and valve timing erratic. A rattling noise from the timing gears is an indication of this problem. If you have an inductive timing light, you can check for this by watching the timing mark; slop in the timing chain will cause the timing mark to jiggle around, especially right after blipping the throttle.

There are other possibilities, such as poor fuel pressure regulation, but first make sure you have clean system voltage.

Car died while driving wont start again just wants to backfire


check for timing issue,( belt, chain ) DO NOT sit and crank on motor as if it is the timing belt you can and will cause severe internal valve damage. Backfire is common cause for improper timing. If you turn motor over do it by hand with socket on the crank bolt,you can turn but if you feel resistance other than compression then the piston is hitting valves, its best to do this with spark plugs removed. remove timing belt cover and check idlers,tensioners, sliders for damage or wear.

If there is a check engine light,have the codes read,it is most likely a miss fire on one of the four cylinders,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Vw lt46 1998 would it damage valves if timing belt


yes it will and most likely put a hole in the piston and snap the cam shaft if the engine is doing any more than idle speed, if it breaks at idle you may be lucky and just get away with a few bent valves but if im honest ive never seen anyone be lucky with one the normaly require a new engine. also worth changing the water pump at the same time as these do seize and will snap the new cam belt ! the only belt you can get away with leaving is the pump belt if this breaks no damage is caused the engine will just cut out ! however you will need to pretty much remove it after fitting a cambelt to set the timing so its pretty pointless no to change it

Idle speed is too high on my Freelander 1.8 petrol. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it sits at 1500rpm although sometimes it sits at 3500rpm. In every other respect the engine performs...


The Idle air speed control of the car is starting to go or the Mass Air Flow sensor is starting to go. I would have the vehicle checked out by your local Mechanic. The HIgh RPM at 3500 on start up is going to cause internal damage to the engine over time. The engine oil can not circulate fast enough on initial start up to all the lubricating parts.
