It could be from a bad alternator. Or the ECU could have gone out. CHECK ALL YOUR FUSES!! Hope this helps, James Booth

Started my 2005 Kia Sorento this morning. It sounded and felt rough than died. Started it again gave it some gas and kept running rough. but RPM's fluxing up and down.


If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

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.

2004 Rio. It just died on me while I was coming to a stop at traffic lights. It would not start so I tried roll start but wouldn't kick over. I had a mobile mechanic look at it and he said the engine...


If you try to start it and it turns over at all then its not seized. The solution may be as simple as a new fuel filter or a new fuel pump.

Kia rio 02 died while driving down highway


The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.

2005 Kia Rio.


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.
