have you checked the timing belt on the engine? i had a similar issue with my ford escort wagon. it is definitely something that needs to be ruled out. what have you checked already?

Have your O2 sensors checked, with an OBD2 meter, and see if they are functioning, if not replace them. O2 sensor is located in the exhaust pipe between the motor and the catalytic converter. The front O2 sensor runs the engine and the after cat converter monitors the cat converter.

That is the O2 sensor AFTER the CATALYTIC converter. its meaning is TOO LEAN. That means it could be related to a bad sensor or an exhaust leak.

Welcome to Fixya

Check/replace the fuel pump relay that will lead to this issue also. It's very likely also that you have some dry-rotted vaccum lines and/or a bad EGR valve. You can take care of the EGR to get you by if you unplug the vaccum line going to it and put a screw in that vaccum line. EGR is a waste of space and should have never been placed on automobiles. Check all of your vaccum lines for cracking and dry-rot. The fumes from unleaded gas dries them out after around 10 years.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Yes, have the ECU tested, but only after you've checked and cleaned all body grounds and clean battery terminals. I ALWAYS go straight to the grounds when I have an electrical problem.

Check for a vacuum leak. Possibly in the pc circuit.

P0130 is an oxygen sensor heater malfunction code. Did you check for power and ground to the sensor heater circuit? If it's not getting power and ground it won't heat up and that will cause a P1166. You're throwing parts at it instead of diagnosing the root cause.

it sounds like an injector problem get a code reading on it to find out which cylinder and the replace that injector.

2001 Kia Rio | Answered on Jul 19, 2017

it could be one of 2 things it could be the auto gearbox, or piston has dropped and locked up. you would need to look at the pistons thought the spark plug holes to check engine. if you use a rod to check where the pistons are they should be 2 up 2 down on 4 cylinder engine if its un even say 3 down then that's the problem auto box it would need to be removed and checked. even manual gearbox can do this but if you put your foot on the clutch it disconnects and the engine would start.
