Question about 2002 Kia Rio
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.
