Question about 2002 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Kia Rio. It started trying to stall when going into slow traffic or at stop signs. Now it is hard to start when it is cold. I have had the fuel filters changed, the crank sensor replaced, the computer changed, and the o2 sensor replaced. The fuel pump has been checked also the idle sensor. Can anyone help me? My car has been in the garage for 2 weeks.

This is likely going to be the Pre cat that is connected to the exhaust just off of the exhaust manifold attatched to the cylinder head. These were a little problematic for plugging and causing exactly what you are describing. Find a trusted exhaust shop in your area and have them inspect. Once the pre cat has been unistalled and the engine ran, it should clear up and run good proving the repair. Install a new one and enjoy that little car. Let me know what is found.

    So far have been over the car with a fine tooth comb. From every sensor to the pre cat. Wiring, and all. Still nothing.

MY 2004 RIO STOPPED RUNNING AT A STOP SIGN AND WOULD NOT RESTART.. TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T START, SOUNDS LIKE IT ISN'T GETTING GAS.


buy some brake clean. spray a little in throttle body. if it starts and stalls you need a fuel pump or you lost power to the fuel pump. If nothing changes you may have a bad crank sensor or ignition issue.

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.

Car starts to sputter when at a red light or stop sign?


mine was doing something similar I had the injectors flushed at an oil change place. it was about $50 bucks but it help with the hard staring and hiccup at stops. it also gave me about 1-2 miles per gallon better milage. After that I also changed the plugs and Air filter.

Idle problem


First of all does this happen when the engine is cold? If so, check your injectors. They may be clogged. If it happens, are you able to start it back right away and it keep running? Do you or can you keep it running at a stop light/ If this is the case you may either have a clogged fuel filter and /or fuel line.
