Could be a lot of things. First check to see if any vacuum lines have been disconnected because of the backfiring. Next scan the computer to see what codes are in the system.

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.

Did you perform the recommended maintenance in regards to the timing belt?

2003 Kia Rio • Answered on Feb 18, 2018

Bad news. You have probably bent the valves in the head. When the belt was removed it was not at TDC and the marks not lined up. New engine or rebuild. Sorry....

1st of all did your gas mileage drop? If It's an O2 sensor your gas mileage will be about half. If the car is running normally but you can't get the check engine Light off, It may be Simple. Most cars these days have an Oil Life Sensor that needs to be reset after Oil Changes. Turn your Key On , But Do not START. Pump your Accelerator to the Floor 3 Times In 10 Seconds and turn the key off. Start It up Again And See if that was it.
