Your clutch is located inside the semi rounded housing that is sandwiched between the back of the engine and the transmission. It's a big job to get to it and best left to someone with experience. As for the throttle, make sure there is a return spring on the linkage on the throttle body where the throttle cable attaches to it. It may have broken or fallen off. (find that by having someone work the gas pedal and look at what moves on the engine when you do that.)

How to fix a clutch for a kia rio 2003

What is wrong with your clutch first of all? Is slipping or smells like it is burned?
Most manual transmissions cars have a clutch adjustment to compensate for the wear on the clutch , some cars have a hydraulic adjustment.
Depending on how bad is the wear on the clutch you might need to replace it especially if the clutch overheated and is glazed.

I have a kia rio 2000 and just recently the ecm

this sounds like an ecm issue. call the dealer and explain the issue. this should be covered under warranty. if no satisfaction there call the 1-800 number for kia in your owners handbook and talk to someone there. they are in irvine, ca. i hope this helps you. i just dont want to ruin your warranty. cheers

I need a codes for the radio kia 2005 carnilval ls

go to or call kia parts dept for radio code and procedure. you will need to bring them or fax your proof of ownership, title usually is required, if you are the original owner your sales person may have records for you on file or the dealership office may have the code on file, also sometimes your salesperson will write the code in your owners manual. how to enter the code is in your owners manual. I hope this was very helpful
