It sounds like you may have missed a connector or ground when you were plugging them back in upon installation. Recheck all of the electrical connections to make sure they're tight and that any ground straps are connected and tight also.

SOURCE: 2004 kia rio will not start, has spark, could it

most likely the fuel pump has failed, the filter even if clogged will allow enough gas through for the eng to idle.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 kia rio 5 speed

there are 2-3 bushings underneath the car that can be changed.....they are about 5-7 dollars each that you can pick up at the dealership and do it yourself...it's not hard at all...drive it on ramps and chock the wheels to make it safe....get underneath and then have someone in the drivers seat to shift the gears(while it's off) so you can see where the moving points are, then just undo the bolts and replace the bushings or you can just remove or loosen the bolts and lubricate them with lots of grease....I would try the grease first, it should do the trick...Kia will charge you about $130 to do it for you...

SOURCE: gear box oil filler plug - kia rio 2004

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Rio turns over but won't start.

These are coil packs,the most likely problem will be the crank sensor,or the cam sensor,these are what trigger the pulse for spark,and injector pulse.

My 2004 Kia Rio has engine problems. At about 2500 rpms, it stalls out. Not sure if it is a fuel filter probl;em or spark plug issue. Can you help?


That sounds like a fuel starvation problem. The easy route would be to replace your fuel filter and see if the problem is solved.
