This could be a bad thing or it could just be the guage failed. I would bring it in to dealer and hope you are under waranty meaning under 100,000 miles. And single owner.

My 2001Kia Rio speedometer suddenly stopped working and now stays on 0. How do I fix this dilemma I am having?

That could be expensive to replace.....does the odometer still work? One work around would be to get a GPS for your car, it will show you your speed and miles driven.

My 2004 kia rio its overheting just when i stop


Check that the fan is starting and working OK. When you drive the air hitting the front of the radiator may compensate a malfunctioning fan. When you stop without the fan working the radiator gets hotter and your dash tells you that there is overheating.

If the fan is working replace the thermostat that may be starting the fan too late. Also check fan fuse and relay.

Do not drive the car in this conditions. Overheating can easily cause damage to the head gasket. An head gasket problem will require a more expensive repair.
