Kia rios have very poor sensors installed on them, problems could range from many issues or combination of. Mass air flow not giving computer proper inputs, intake temp sensor not inputing correct reading to ecm ( electronic control module) aka computer. air leaks into intake manifold giving false signals to computer, weak coil packs , throttle position sensor degraded, and the list goes on, best thing to do , is to shed this little beast from the herd. I have one of these pieces of ****, and I am still fighting this stallling issue. Run away and Run fast,before you are completely broke trying to fix this thing, Just my opinion.

I have a 2002 kia rio and my check engine light came on the dianost said the problem was 4th gear incorrect ratio! What does that mean?


The purpose of the automatic transmission is to match the engine's optimum power and torque characteristics to the driver's desired rate of acceleration and speed by auto-selecting different gear ratios or 'speeds' to power the wheels.

2002 kia rio wont run for more than 5 seconds then it dies out.


Weak fuel pump, (check fuel pressure) Im leaning towards a Clogged catalytic converter as its the most common overlooked problem that will cause a car to run for a bit after it sits a while, only to not restart immediatly after it stalls, but will again start after some time.

Problem with Automatic Transmission in 2002 Kia Rio Cinco


Have you checked the fluid level?Was there any oil leak spots under the car?
Correct any low fluid level and give it a try.
If the fluid is at the correct level,disconnect the battery for 10 mins then reconnect and try it again,if it still won't work you may have to have a transmission expert take a look at it.
You can put in a used transmission if needed and not spend lots of $$$ for a rebuilt trans,or just buy another complete vehicle to drive and not fix your 2002.
