Had a problem with my daughters Kia Rio, it would tend to loose power and would not accelerate easily, tried everything and it turned out to be the feed cables for the fuel injection which run at the rear of the engine along the baulkhead, which were streched ..Had to rewire .

I need to replace the motor mounts on my daughter's Kia Rio Cinco (2002), but can't find a repair manual for the car. I've done motor mounts in other cars and they were easy. Any idea if there are any...


The problem with most modern cars is that you have to lift the entire engine from it's casing to get to the mounts especialy the transmision mount.
