Check engine light is on

When the check engine light is flashing it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Check all your fuses, if ok...chances are you blew a computer. Last option is try to disconnect the battery, take both terminals on the harness side and touch them together for a min or so. This will drain any capacitors and essential wipe minor driveability settings stored in ecm

Idle problem

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.

2003 kia rio crank seized tried replacing timing

Hello;
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....
