Question about 2005 Kia Rio

1 Answer

2005 Kia Rio.

My car stopped working for no apparent reason. While I was driving, the engine made a clanking noise and died. Now it won't start and when I tried to push the car and pop the clutch, as soon as I pushed the clutch pedal the car jerked and wouldn't move. Gas, oil, and coolant are all fine.

You probobly threw a timing belt wich in turn caused damage to the valves and piston heads. I just replaced my engine because of it.

Re: 2005 Kia Rio Wagon. Driving down the highway, car just decided to stop working. Will not start again. Have replaced the starter with a brand new starter still not working. All you can hear is


Well, to begin with, the LAST thing I would replace if a vehicle died going down the highway is the starter. What caused the engine to die? It certainly was not the starter!
If the starter will not crank the engine over, you probably have a dead battery. If your battery went dead while driving the vehicle down the road, you most likely have a bad alternator. However, it is really hard to say without actually being able to see the car.

2005 Kia rio cinco just stalled out coming home from work. Won't start at all now...just cranks. Had to tow home. No check engine light came on and no code on code reader. Ideas?


Check the fuel pump and all fuel related items, and check the coil pack. Check fuse's for same.
Remember, NO air, or NO fuel, or NO spark equals NO run.

That's what happened to mine when the timing chain broke.. my 04 cinco had about 80k miles on it at this point. Unfortunately I warped the valves when it happened so it cost a small fortune to fix :(

2004 Kia Rio Won't Start Clicking Noise Battery is GOOD


My 2004 Kia Rio just started losing compression and died on me. I tried starting it and it only clicks. I checked the battery cables and they are not corroded and very tight. Could it be the battery or the alternator not charging the battery? there is no water in the oil and it's not the water pump.

Why does my car vibrate and noisy at red light and stop sign


My rio kia bought on from uyi technical dealer in benin city, edo state of nigeria only 4 months ago is vibrating with noise while driving. The noise is noticed by other road users even in motion, making a very loud noise or sound that is highly embarrassing. The dealer mechanics have checked more than twice yet no result, instead the hub bearing is observed; tyres are turn over yet the noise persists.

What do think is resolution to the problem? pls help me. Vinson- kvinson3000@yahoo.com
