Question about 2004 Kia Rio

2 Answers

2004 Kia Rio Cinco 1.6L. Stalled while driving. Car cranks but won't turn over. Have power to the fuel pump, good relay, and fuse. Fuel pump does not prime/operate. Does not have spark. Had the head redone a month ago and replaced all the goodies during the process. Have seen a couple of the same problems posted on forums and dealer/garage mechanics are stumped. They have replaced fuel pumps, crank and cam position sensors, still no luck. Have not seen any solution posted. Apparently, it is a small epidemic among the Rio. Have any suggestions??

Check the crankshaft sensor. Many of these failed in the recent years.

If a vehicle shuts off while driving it could be a few things. Alternator, PCM, cat. converter stopped up. Check engine light on?

SOURCE: My 2003 Kia Rio Cinco back hatch latch handle is

We had the same problem.
I took out the bolts outside, then crawled into the back area of the car, and took a screw driver, and slid it along the inner hatch catch, and found the safety latch and released the hatch. Then I took the inside off, and disconnected the handle device from the inside. It was rusted, and broken. I went to Kia, and bought a new one and reinstalled, after greasing the new one up. Took me a while, but they wanted 280.00 in labor, so it was well worth it.
Just be patient and go slow. A good metric socket set will be the best thing, with a regular and phillips screw driver.
Good luck
David

I thought i lost the timing belt. It stalled like it. but its all good just wont start


Did you crank it over or try to turn the crank shaft and see it the cam/s turned. After that look at the crank sensor. Have the codes read first.

How do you replace fuel pump on 2004 kia rio cinco 1.6 liter


First determine where the pump is, I am not familiar with this model. If it is inside the tank the replacement is much more difficult, some models have access areas in the trunk or under a seat.

No power to fuel pump


Check the fuse 1st, then change the fuel pump relay with another relay the same but something like headlight relay or something that won't stop the car from working. Check for power at pump while the key is turned by someone else to the on posision & while cranking, some vehicles run fuel pump power through alternator circuit so will only get power while cranking & drive belt on

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.

97 chevy blazer w/ 4.3 won't start unless i pour full directly into it....what is causing this. was driving and it just stalled ...fires but won't turn over completely


if you can put fuel in throttle body and it runs. then it is not getting any fuel. check your fuel pump fuse and the relay, if ok, then you may have a bad fuel pump or a plugged up fuel filter. check filter and fuses first. good-day !!

2004 kia rio cinco, will turn over but not start, light come on


There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2004 KIA RIO-ENGINE WILL NOT CRANK


I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck
