Question about 2005 Kia Rio

Open Question

My kia rio began making a single snapping sound when I turned the wheel and again when I turned it back. Now I've noticed that the car droops about a 1/4 of an inch on upper left (drivers side). Is this a serious suspension problem?

First off I don't think I will be able to answer all your questions but to get a smother ride your going towant to replace the shocks. They army to expensive. Yes a old spark pulg can cause a missfire. A miss fire is when the spark plug doesn't spam in the right area if it were grounding that could be considereda miss fire or if it is not firing at the correct time. The trany fluid keeps yours gears lubricated so they work smothly and helps with cooling. The best way to find out your fluid type is to go to the autoparts store and ask them and they can look it up for you and I would say your braek fluid would be a DOT 4 and your tranny probobly takes like a 60-75 weight oil but I'm not sure I say ask them to be sure.

My 2009 kia Rio makes clunking noise from


Jack it up and try moving the wheel in and out at the top and bottom, and again left to right. If there's movement, you should be able to isolate it to a ball joint, A-arm bushing, or a wheel bearing (though the entire front suspension should have been checked while changing out the rack).

What does a ideler arm for a 2003 Kia Rio do problem:


The kia rio uses rack and pinion steering, which does not use an idler arm. Did someone tell you you had an idler arm?

For cars that have classical steering designs, the idler arm is a part of the steering linkage that makes the front wheels turn about the same on both sides. Actually, the wheel on the side of the turn turns a little bit more. The idler arm is necessary for the wheels to turn properly. When the joints in the idler arm wear out, the right wheel is allowed to move back and forth on it's own. This causes vinration, excess tire wear, and possibly an unsafe steering condition if the wear is excessive. .

Kia Rio cutting off


im assuming that changed the oil unit you mean sending unit ? if so could be electric short in the pick tail or worse wiring harness. second there is also possoble vacum leak .third while unit was being replaced something didnt get put back or got knocked loose. created a new problem. most times as thing are going bad they dont register until it is a prolonged problem as it took 2 days for the check engine to go out that also might have been normal. you might also notice while sitting at park when you turn the wheel you will notice ia differance in the idle, if its almost stalling then its probley your idle,needs re set, or your idle controle valve is going bad ,did it get checked or cleaned when they serviced the throttle body. and also could be your mass air flow sensor going bad or need cleaned
